La Porte ISD's annual Education Celebration, sponsored by the La Porte Education Foundation, is set for Thursday, March 21, from 5 to 7 p.m. at La Porte High School.
Parents and community members are invited to join in the celebration of LPISD and its students, educational programs and schools. "Education-It's BIGGER Here" is the Celebrate Texas Public Schools theme for this year.
Every LPISD school will have a booth to showcase activities at the campuses. Musical performances by district elementary, junior high school and high school groups are also scheduled throughout the event. LPISD students will have the chance to enter a drawing for an iPod Nano at the event.
Campuses with the highest percentage of adult attendance will win $300 and the district's "Traveling Trophy" for one year. Schools with the second-highest percentage of adult attendance will win $150.
Additional drawings for teachers, principals and assistant principals and district personnel will be held. A raffle for a Vizio 37-inch HDTV/TVACL will also take place. Donations are $3 each or 4 for $10. Tickets are available at the event.
Drawings will be held for a Portable DVD Player, external hard drive, Canon wireless printer, iPod Nano, GE camera and additional prizes for a donation of $1 per ticket.
In addition, hot dogs, corn dogs, chips, drinks and cookies will be sold at the event. Proceeds from all sales benefit the La Porte Education Foundation in its efforts to enhance education for LPISD students.
