Lamar Art students attended Junior V.A.S.E. ( Visual Arts Standards of Excellence) this past Saturday. Students were given the opportunity to interview with a juror, view work by other Art students from varying districts and compete creatively within their years of art level.
Three students, Emma, Paola, and Maribel received medals for their accomplishments. Emma and Maribel each received two medals and a perfect score on one of their sculptures.
The Lamar Lioness Club reaches out to the community. We try to make the world a better place by building confidence in each other, reaching out to help our community, and bringing awareness to create a kinder world. We are an all girls group who work together at building a stronger and more connected world through love and not hate. The Lioness Club is full with goofballs. So far we have made posters to bring awareness to Childhood Cancer and Autism. We visit and help in the LIFE classes as peer tutors. In December we put together a competition throughout our school in order to collect nonparishable food items. We collected over 1200 items for St. Luke Catholic Church food pantry. This past Saturday, the 14th, we were asked to help represent Lamar Middle School at the Go Irving ISD event. In doing so, we worked to spread joy and positivity by asking our guests to describe what they love about themselves and a wish for the world. In the words of Gandhi, we strive every day to “Be the change we wish to see in the world” and spread our message as far as we can reach. Take our survey:https://tinyurl.com/LMSlioness

The Lioness Club worked extremely hard collecting, boxing, and loading items collected for a donation to help families in need during the holiday season. There was close to 1,200 items donated and all went to the food pantry at St. Luke Catholic Church who was more than appreciative to all of Lamar. Thank you to everyone else who helped! It truly feels better to give than receive, and our girls had fun!
