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!

Life School, a leading North Texas public charter school serving over 5,600 students, held its fifth annual Elementary Science Fair at the Life School Red Oak campus Friday, February 7th. Sixty students in grades 3rd - 6th from Life School’s six elementary campuses competed at the district level after placing in the top three at their campus-based competition.

With a passion for education, students, and the community, Dr. Wilson sat down with the LSMC’s 6th-grade Student Council and discussed Life. Founded in 1998, Life School has grown from a single campus of 266 students to now 10 campuses with over 5,600 students in North Texas. And for the last 11 years, current Superintendent, Dr. Brent Wilson, has been leading the charge for the charter school’s success.
