Summer construction work continues on 2014 bond program projects
Plumbing has been installed and grade beams have been poured in preparation for the slab
at the new Baker Sixth Grade Campus facility, which will be located south of the Instructional
Technology Center on the current Baker campus.
The construction crew at La Porte High School uses a crane to relocate a cooling tower on the
site. The move was part of the process toward construction of the new Career and Technical
Education Center at the campus.
Preparations are made for the building pad of the new fine arts facility at La Porte High
School. The fine arts building will be constructed north of the current gymnasium where the
tennis courts were previously located.
Preparation work for the extension of the parking lot takes place at La Porte Junior High
School. The new gymnasium will be constructed east of the parking lot addition.
Workers lay new brick around the columns at the new front entrance of College Park Elementary
School. Administrative offices are being relocated to the Purdue side of the school.
Work on La Porte ISD 2014 bond program projects continues, with construction
teams taking advantage of the summer months to make significant progress at a
number of sites. Recent rainy weather has presented some challenges, but LPISD
deputy superintendent Mike Clausen said that the crews are working diligently to try
to make up for any lost time.

LPHS students work toward diplomas, degrees through ACE Program
Several students in the La Porte High School ACE program gather in front of San Jacinto
College their first week of summer classes.
Thirty-five students from La Porte High School are working toward both their
LPHS diplomas and their associate degrees from San Jacinto College Central as part
of the Accelerated College Education (ACE) program offered by the district.
Through the program, the rising juniors are taking a class at San Jacinto College
Central this summer and will be enrolled in two summer courses there in 2016.
Beginning this fall, participants will spend their mornings (first through fourth
periods) at San Jacinto College Central and will return to the LPHS campus for
additional classes (fifth through seventh periods) in the afternoon.
Students who meet expectations will receive both high school and college credit
for those courses. Upon successful completion of the program, the first participants
of the ACE program will earn their associate degrees in the spring of 2017, just
before their high school graduation.
LPHS associate principal Jason McConnell explained that a screening process
this spring helped determine which rising juniors were eligible for the program.
Participants must have earned at least an 80 in Algebra II Pre-Advanced Placement
(AP) or Pre-Calculus during their sophomore year as well as in two other Pre-AP
or AP courses. This was to ensure that they were prepared for the rigor of college
coursework, McConnell said.
“This is a great group of students,” McConnell added. “They are very excited
about the program and are really enjoying summer school at San Jacinto College
Central.”
An advantage for the ACE students’ families is that La Porte ISD pays for their
tuition and books, thereby helping to offset the cost of their college education. LPISD
also covers these costs for students who take dual enrollment courses at the LPISD/
San Jacinto College Center located on Broadway.
“This is an amazing opportunity for our students, not only because they will
get their two-year degree at the same time they graduate from high school, but also
because they have the potential to earn their bachelor’s degree two years from the
time they graduate from LPHS,” McConnell said.
David Knowles, executive director of secondary education, encourages future
high school students who are interested in the ACE program to begin thinking about
this opportunity early on and plan ahead for it. To complete Algebra II in their
sophomore year, they would need to take Algebra I in eighth grade, he explained.
“We hope to grow this program as we move forward, and these first class
members are our pathfinders,” Knowles said. “They are highly motivated and have
taken on this challenge with very positive attitudes.”
“In addition to the fact they can graduate with their associate degrees when
they graduate from high school, the ACE program is instilling in them the discipline
and study habits they will need when they go on to get their four-year degree,” he
continued. “Students receive strong support from the La Porte High School staff
and the San Jacinto College staff, all of whom are very interested in helping them
succeed.”

School, 281-604-7500.

Students gain skills at 3-D Design and Printing Camp this summer
Victoria Cortez works on a design to solve an imaginary problem during the 3-D design and
printing camp held at La Porte ISD’s Instructional Technology Center. Camp sessions were
held June 8 through 11 and June 15 through 18 for students entering the sixth, seventh and
eighth grades.
La Porte ISD students entering the sixth, seventh or eighth grades this fall had
the opportunity to learn more about 3-D design and printing this summer at a camp
offered by the district’s Instructional Technology department.
Alan Ward, LPISD director of instructional technology, explained that 3-D design
is used in real-world situations by architects and engineers as well as in movie and
television production. During the camp, participants discovered the basics of creating
3-D objects by using Google Sketchup and observed their designs transformed into a
real object using a MakerBot Replicator 5 printer.
Alex Zapata, left, and Shelby Davis show their finished projects that they designed and printed
on the 3-D printer.
Each participant was presented with a challenge in creating his or her project.
Students were asked to imagine that they were on another planet, and each was given
a different situation that he or she needed to resolve by creating an object on the
printer.
Instructional technology specialists Erica Alverson, Lisa Basile and Jennifer
Engels led the camps, which were offered June 8 through 11 and June 15 through 18.
Approximately 16 students attended each of the sessions.
