There are so many learning opportunities in the La Marque Independent School District this summer.

21st Century (district-enrolled students only), Literacy Bus, STEM and summer field trips are all part of a plan to improve the quality of education we provide to our children in La Marque ISD. It is our desire to make sure we are catering to the whole child.

So, this summer, free meals are being offered to anyone up to age 18. All our campuses will serve the meals, with the exception of La Marque Elementary. The Early Childhood Center, 100 Lake Road, serves breakfast from 7:30 a.m. to 8 a.m., and lunch will be served from 10:45 a.m. to 11:45 a.m.

La Marque High School, 397 Duroux, will be serving breakfast from 7 a.m. to 8 a.m. and lunch will be served from 10:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Renaissance Academy, 1217 Vauthier, will be serving breakfast from 7 a.m. to 7:45 a.m. and lunch from 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.

Adult meals also will be served — breakfast is $2 and lunch is $3.

All campuses will serve meals Mondays through Thursdays through July 25.

Aramark Education Food Service Management, the contractor for the district, will be providing the meals for our children. They have been with our district since 1981. We are so proud they are in our district serving our children and community.

With all the academic-enriched activities and the Seamless Summer Nutrition program, every child in our community has the opportunity to allow us to close and eliminate the gaps in learning that can occur.

The lifeblood of our community is determined by the quality of education we provide to our children. La Marque ISD is moving in the right direction.

Terri L. Watkins is the superintendent of the La Marque Independent School District.
