The annual LCISD Science Fair was held last week, and out of 568 student projects, 36 were selected to move on to the South Plains Regional Science and Engineering Fair! Well done, participants, and congratulations to the scientists who are advancing!
Pre-k classroom centers may seem all fun and games, but they teach our little Pirates lots of big skills through hands-on play!
January is School Board Appreciation Month, and we couldn't be more thankful for this crew of district leaders! The LCISD Board of Trustees guides our district with intentionality, thoughtfulness, and wisdom, and makes sure our school community is heard and supported!
Lubbock-Cooper Fine Arts organizations invite you to the first ever Treasure Hunt Through the Arts THIS SATURDAY (January 22) from 2:00-4:00 p.m. at the LCHS Performing Arts Center, Fine Arts Wing, and Commons Area! Each elementary campus, both middle schools, and LCHS will be showcasing more than 300 pieces of visual art, dance, theatre, vocal performance, and instrumental groups! Join us!
Today's chilly weather has us thinking about the winter tree treats West Elementary fifth graders created!
The doctors are in! South Elementary fourth graders donned their surgical gear to dissect and practice multi-step problem solving procedures as a review before their All Operations Assessment!
We're so proud of LCISD Director of Special Education Tracy Fogerson and Athletic Director Max Kattwinkel, who have been honored by Special Olympics Texas with The Red Ball Award! This award is reserved for those who play a significant role in promoting Unified Champion Schools, which these two Pirates have done in a BIG WAY through the creation of the Lubbock-Cooper Unified Track team! Through their leadership, our inaugural Unified Track team took second place at the STATE meet, and has served as a life changing opportunity for so many students!
Congratulations to the LCHS Academic Decathlon team on their success at the Lubbock Final Nine meet!

One of the three memorial scholarships facilitated by the Lubbock-Cooper Education Foundation is the Joe Dale Gillispie Memorial Scholarship, founded this year.
Joe Dale Gillispie is best remembered for his servant’s heart and love for his community, family, and friends. He was extremely passionate about his job at Lubbock-Cooper Independent School District working as the Grounds Supervisor for 16 years. He established his landscaping company, All Seasons Property Care, Inc., in 1990, and for 32 years his family has continued serving the Lubbock community’s landscape needs. He served as Chaplain, Board member, and firefighter for the Woodrow Volunteer Fire Department for 25 years.
His incredible work ethic and community service will always be remembered. The Gillispie family wishes to honor him through the Joe Dale Gillispie Memorial Scholarship, available to Lubbock-Cooper ISD seniors who will be attending a college, university, or technical/trade school who wish to pursue a career as a first responder, in agriculture, and/or in landscape design/architecture. These are three areas that Joe was very passionate about and excelled in his service. Joe embodied the qualities of hard work, perseverance, and a servant’s heart in all he did. His family would like to honor a Pirate who embodies these same qualities and takes pride in their schoolwork and pride in their Pirate community. This scholarship is meant to assist them in furthering their education to positively impact their own lives and the lives of those around them.
Scholarships will be awarded based on academic merit, community service, citizenship, sponsor recommendation, and personal essay.
