IMPORTANT-Schedule changes

Message from Dr. Argent:

Parents of Lake Myra Students:

After reviewing instructional hours for students and transportation needs for the district, The Wake County Public School System has decided to cancel the make-up day scheduled for Saturday, March 29. Instead, the YR Early Release day on Friday, March 28 will be extended to a full day of instruction. Once again, there will be no school on Saturday March 29th.  Furthermore, school on Friday March 28th will last from 9:15 to 3:45, normal school hours. 

Thank you and please let me know if you have any questions.


Dr. Jim Argent

Principal, Lake Myra Elementary School

We have changed the classroom celebration of board games and snacks to Friday, March 28th. Please have your child bring in a blanket, snack and board game. Just a reminder, we have a full day on Friday and do not have Saturday school on March 29th.

3 Quarter Celebration!

This Thursday we will have a picnic celebration for students who have been beginning with the end in mind. This quarter we have been awarding student points for turning in their weekly fluency and homework packets. Those students who have enough points will be able to participate in the celebration! 

If you would like to donate juice or a special snack to share, please send them in with your child at any time throughout the week. 

Your child may bring in a blanket or a towel to lay on and a fun game of their choice (please no electronics). 

Can't wait!

We have early release on Friday & Saturday school this week. 

Report cards will go home the first Monday that we are back in school.

Data Notebooks and Math Talk

We have been tracking our math, spelling and fluency data all year. Every week your child sets a goal for math sprints. This is my first year implementing data notebooks and they work! Students love seeing their progress and growth! It also makes them in charge of their learning.

We are learning how to decompose three digit numbers. Here are students working on the expanded form method. They rocked it!

Book Trailers

Students have had a blast creating book trailers for Literacy Week here at Lake Myra.  Students worked together, summarized a story, and created a trailer.  Check out their awesome work!
