What a fantastic week! It was so nice to have our students back this week. The energy in the building was an indication of great things already! Our 1st-8th graders had opportunities to get to know new classmates, dive into using their Imagination and enjoy learning new routines.
As we look to next week, please know that we have a lot of great things taking place that I’d like to invite you to attend. As a reminder:
Monday, August 31st Kindergarten FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL
9:15am Boo Hoo/Yahoo Brunch!
9:30-12:00 & 6:00-8:00pm PTSA event – One Day, One Pay
Tuesday, September 1st K/1 Curriculum Night @ 5:45pm
Middle Level Curriculum Night @ 5:45pm
Friday, September 4th First Whole School Meeting @ 11:40am
**Note time change**
We have had an increase in congestion during dismissal this week. In an effort to help all students get home quickly and safely, we ask that parents picking up students, find a meeting location to meet up with their child. Locations can include the park, the back path, the flag pole or your car. We have staff on duty every day that can help get your child there. We ask that you DO NOT pick up your child at the front door. The majority of our students exit out that door every day and having the area clear will help students exit the building and find buses in a safer and quicker manner. Lastly, as a reminder, parents and students should always use the crosswalks when walking through the parking lot during arrival and dismissal. Walking between buses and the lot is not safe for anyone.
We have our first issue of this year’s LP Press August 28, 2015. As always our newsletter is packed with information, celebrations and school related information organized by our PTSA. This newsletter will be sent out weekly and will house all necessary information for the upcoming week and scheduled events. It will be sent out electronically each week. If you desire a paper copy sent home with your child instead, please contact our main office.
And last, but certainly not least, please join me in congratulating, Paula Falvo, our school secretary on receiving a prestigious Award of Recognition given by the Illinois State Board of Education. There is more information on The School District 54 website. We do not have to read the details that contributed to the nomination, nor the award, to know that her daily support, conversations and smile is what adds to the LP community.
We look forward to seeing everyone next week at our first Whole School Meeting of the year. You definitely don’t want to miss it!
Have a wonderful weekend!
