I sincerely hope that your family had a restful, enjoyable spring break. We are back and geared up for the last quarter of the school year!
Since our groundbreaking last month, work continues to make good progress toward our new school. We met with the interior designer and selected tile, paint, cabinet and counter finishes. Even with an empty lot on the former school site, it’s amazing the work that is happening not only on the scene, but behind the scene as well!
This month finds our 3rd, 4th and 5th grade students beginning to “showing what they know” on spring assessments. The schedule is listed in these pages and you will be getting reminders from your classroom teachers as well. You can help by making sure your child has breakfast, is on-time to school and well rested in order to put forth their best efforts.
Project MORE, a reading mentoring program utilizing volunteers was in place last year, and to a much smaller degree this year. Community volunteers include parents, retired neighbors, former teachers and a few Lakewood High School students. These volunteers make a commitment to work with a particular student for 30 minute time periods, up to 4 days per week. Please contact me if you think this may be something you could become part of for the remainder of this school year or for our quick-start as we begin next school year.
You’ll notice on the calendar, there are many opportunities to come together as a school community. I hope to see you and your families at one of these events in April. As always, thank you for the support you give your children toward their future successes.
