Despite the cooler temperatures, we have had an enjoyable week here at LP. Please check out this week’s LP Press October 18, 2013 for upcoming information and dates. We have a busy couple of weeks ahead of us. Please take time to look through all of the information coming home, as well as take time to talk through what is taking place at school.
As I mentioned in the letter sent home last week, School District 54 created a curriculum that will give students the knowledge and skills they need to protect themselves against sexual abuse. The grade level appropriate lessons will begin taking place next week. Classroom teachers will be emailing families with the exact date of the presentation so that families can hold conversations at home as well. Middle Level families, please see the Middle Level website for more details.
We are hosting a CAN event Wednesday, October 23rd from 6:00-7:00pm. This family friendly event will host tastings for everybody, a cooking event for students 5 and up, and a fall craft activity for children under 5. Did I mention that there will be FREE DELICIOUS SAMPLES? Please RSVP if you plan on attending. Walk In’s are welcome too!
