WELCOME, December!! Hard to believe we are already over halfway through the 2nd grading period. It is crucial that you review your child's progress and make any needed adjustments. Teachers, Mrs. Ford, and I are available for questions on how to help your child be more successful. We believe communication between home and school is very important. Please feel free to contact us at 362-2561.
The weather is beginning to change with temperatures dropping and snow falling. Please be sure your child comes prepared for outside weather as students have recess every day weather permitting. In order to play on the equipment or in the field when there is snow on the ground, your child will need to have snow pants and boots. Please check the LPCSC website or listen to 96.7 the Eagle to find out about school delays or cancellations.

The Wellness Committee met on April 27, 2011, and formulated a policy addressing treats for classroom celebrations. The policy states:
“For the safety of all children, all treats furnished for students, including birthday treats, must be commercially purchased. These treats should be kept simple and in a form that is easy to pass out to students in the class.”
