1 We are well on our way to another successful year at Lopez! A huge thank you to all parents for returning their forms and supporting our PTA with generous donations. Through your contributions and membership, we will be able to continue to provide many wonderful programs that will impact all students throughout the year. October has been an exciting month at Lopez with the Reflections Program wrapping up and Red Ribbon Week festivities (crazy hair, anyone?). Judging for Reflections will take place in early November – thanks to all the participants for their hard work! We are in the midst of Red Ribbon Week as I write this article. We are honored to have Medal of Honor recipient Major General Brady as our guest speaker at the kickoff assembly. Many thanks to Mrs. Terrie Solis and Mr. Rich Behrens for coordinating a great week of activities. Pantherama and the “It’s All Fun and Games” dance are almost here! Pantherama will take place from 4:30 – 7:00 PM on Friday, November 14, with the dance immediately following from 7:00 – 8:30. We look forward to seeing all students for food, fun, and friends at both events! This year is going to be a great one thanks to your participation. Involved parents = successful Panthers!

2 The Principal’s Podium Well Panthers, we’re off and running in our second nine-week grading period. So far, the school year has been nearly flawless. We’ve just ended Football and Volleyball season and I am proud of our athletes this year. Our football boys had to get used to essentially a whole new boys coaching staff was difficult, but they held tough and never quit. Our girls continued their tradition of excellence in 7 th grade and 8 th grade. Academically, we are competing as well. At the first UIL Academic Meet, Lopez won first place! It is great to see our kids competing and hear Lopez Middle School sweeping many of the categories. Our students are certainly honed in on the motto, “Second to none.” Our extracurricular groups have been very busy also. Our Choir recently hosted the regional Choir auditions and the district as a whole did extremely well. Upcoming events include Orchestra regional auditions and as always, Band is gearing up for their competitions as well. November 14 th is the big Lopez “Pantherama” with games, music food and fun with a dance to immediately follow. Come on out and support the school community! Sincerely, Dr. Barry Lanford Principal
