  • Field Trip to Dallas Holocaust Museum

    115 8th graders visited the Dallas Holocaust Museum March 31st.  Students took a guided tour and watched videos of holocaust survivors sharing their memorys of the historic tragedy.  Afterwards, students enjoyed lunch at Klyde Warren Park.  Students returned to school and were given time to write letters of thanks to the museum and create a product as a reflections of their visit.  The entire field trip was planned by two 8th grade students who took initiative to get their fellow classmates an experience they will never forget.

  • Destination Imagination

    Lamar sent one small group of students to this year’s Regional Tournament, held in Haltom City this past Saturday.  This small group of 6th graders have been working extra hard, twice a week, since December to prepare themselves for the tournament. This year, they chose the Improv Challenge, where they placed 5th out of all the middle level teams who performed (a total of 16 teams).  Lamar’s Nerdy Birdy Trio was the only team to place in the Middle Level Improv Challenge in Irving ISD!  In addition to placing, this team also won the Spirit of DI award for their enthusiasm, teamwork, and dynamic imagination!
