Principal’s message:

Dear Parent,

Thank you for your efforts in participating in the Spring Parent Teacher Conferences!  We are so grateful for your sweet children.

If you have an unusual situation that requires a classroom placement request for next year, the form is now available and is due to the school by May 2nd.  Click here for more information and to download the form.  Please read the guidelines and follow all instructions.


From the School Nurse:


Did you know that the school nurses have a web page on the LCSD2 website?

You can find it under “Family and Students,” then look to the right and click “Student Health Services” or go to

On the Student Health Services page you can find: contact information, school forms, illness guidelines, and much more. 

Literacy Corner:

Write, write, write!

Ask your child to write for a variety of purposes. Can your student help you write a grocery list, a thank you to grandparents, or a journal recording special family times? Encourage your child to use the letter and sound patterns we are learning at school. For example, your child can “pound” the syllables and “tap” the sounds to spell unknown words. Try to have a box of fun writing supplies available to inspire creative ideas.

Remember to have fun and enjoy your time writing together.


Literacy week – One of the highlights of Literacy Week in March was a visit from children’s book author, Gary Hogg.  Gary’s fourth grade teacher inspired him to put his wild ideas into stories instead of acting them out in class. He’s been writing ever since.

Gary is the author of 26 books.  He is a popular speaker at schools and conferences and has inspired more than 2 million students to declare with confidence, I am an author!
