The Little Cypress-Mauriceville High School Jazz Band is hosting a silent auction and dinner Tuesday, Dec. 20, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., at First Baptist Church Mauriceville, 11540 Texas Highway 12. Tickets for “Silent Night, Jazzy Night!” are $20 per person and must be purchased in advance.


A Little Cypress Junior High student brought an unloaded BB gun to class on Tuesday, Dec. 6. Staff retrieved the BB gun early in the morning.

Since "a BB gun is not classified as a firearm under federal law, no legal charges were brought against the student," LCM CISD Community Relations coordinator Sherry Combs said in a release.

However, Combs also said that LCM CISD will be "assign[ing] consequences to the student according to the student code of conduct."

This summer, the Texas Action for Healthy Kids recognized the Little Cypress Intermediate School as a “school of success” for their new inclusive playground Stay and Play.

The recognition was based off their year-end report, submitted in a grant to fundraise for Stay and Play.

The playground is handicap accessible and includes components for autistic children and a rubberized cushioned surface.
