LITTLE ELM (May 25, 2017) In the long history of human existence, one thing remains true, regardless of language, climate, or culture -- humans seek interaction with one another, and the central square is where information is shared.

“That’s true even today,” says Little Elm Town Manager Matt Mueller. “Sharing information, asking questions and obtaining answers is a fundamental aspect of our species. What changes over time is how that information is exchanged.”

In Little Elm, http://mylittleelmnews.com is a new internet community web site that has been recently established, bringing much of that critically beneficial information into clear focus. The site marshals the resources of the Town of Little Elm and the Little Elm Independent School District to create a virtual central square, a repository of news and information of and about Little Elm.

“We’re the new hunter-gatherers,” added Mueller. “But instead of seeking physical nourishment, we’re on the hunt for the specific information that will nourish our other needs. We’re looking for information that will benefit our families and communities.”

It’s an electronic meeting space that allows residents, visitors and interested individuals an opportunity to look into the life and times of the larger Little Elm community.

Little Elm ISD Superintendent Dr. Lowell Strike says the site will give the community an opportunity to see many of the great things happening in the schools that might otherwise be overlooked.

"Little Elm ISD’s students and staff are accomplishing great things, every day,” he said. “This website will be a great resource for us to share our story with the community as it happens.”

Having come to Little Elm from a community with a six-year history of a similarly shared portal, the superintendent has no doubts as to the value of such a resource and has committed to its success in the community.

“My hope is our community will embrace the same simplistic concept that will make it convenient for our community to be informed with the most accurate and up-to-date information,” he said. “We appreciate this partnership with the Town of Little Elm to help create our own one-stop for community news.”

In addition to news from the Town and the school district, the My Little Elm News site includes information on sports and recreation, public safety, arts and entertainment and business information. Mueller says the site’s success will be dependent on the users. “The more accustomed people get to checking the site, the more useful it will become,” he said.
