Dear Life School Families,

Last night we were able to have an amazing graduation ceremony for our Class of 2020. It was a wonderful time of being together again to celebrate the accomplishments of these students, in the face of a very challenging end to their school year.

At Life School Red Oak (LSRO) Elementary, teachers, staff, and families reconnected through a summer send-off drive-through parade on Friday, May 22.

Though the school year ended with an unexpected turn caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the LSRO school spirit was strong as staff adopted the social media trend of drive-through parades to celebrate their students’ resilience.

As Ellis County continues the “shelter-in-place” orders to manage the COVID-19 curve, the Life High School Waxahachie and Life Middle School Waxahachie cheer teams are proving their resilience through a virtual solution of online tryouts.

“We still wanted to give our girls the opportunity because it means a lot to them to be able to try out for the team. They put in a lot of work this year and they really wanted to see the fruits of their labor,” expressed Kirstein Andrew, LHSW Head Cheer Coach.

In the United States, the percentage of children and adolescents affected by obesity has more than tripled since the 1970s. Data shows that nearly 1 in 5 school-age children and young people (6 to 19 years) in the United States have obesity. At Life School, we are working to change that statistic for our students. One way we are doing so is by teaching our students about the importance of making healthy food choices. And we are trying to make it fun!
