20 Years Strong

This school year is especially special because it marks our 20th anniversary. We will be celebrating all year long by doing student council activities on the 20th of every month and with hosting an LCS reunion next summer.  Watch for details throughout the year!

As we come to a close on week 3, the teachers have reported that we are off to a great start to the 2019-2020 school year. Students are working hard, making friends and stepping up to help out others in need. Keep up the good work!!

Family Involvement

Families are so important to the educational achievement of students. At LCS, there are a lot of opportunities for you as parents to be involved in your child(s) education. If you aren’t sure where to start, contact your child(s) teacher. We also have many special events throughout the year that you can be involved with. Last week, we had our annual parent input meeting where we talked about test scores, Title program, volunteer opportunities and our 20th year reunion. If you’re interested in helping with our 20th anniversary reunion, please contact the office.

NWEA Testing

On Monday, students will start NWEA testing. Please make sure they get a good nights rest and eat a good breakfast. Encourage them to try their best!

THANK YOU LAFAYETTE LIONS

We would like to send a HUGE thank you to the Lafayette Lions for their monetary donation. The money was used to purchase document cameras for the classrooms, new gym mats, motors for our STEM program and snacks for our snack program. Our students and staff are very thankful for their continued support to LCS!!

As you may have heard from your child, Mrs. Petersen has been out this week due to a reaction from treatment. Mrs. Elder has been in her classroom and Mrs. Clobes has been filling in with administrative duties. If you have any questions or concerns, please see her. On Sunday, the Hector Lions are hosting a benefit for Mrs. Petersen. If you’re interested in details, please see the attachment.

Wanted: If your family has extra produce they would like to get rid of, we’ll take it- peppers, tomatoes, watermelon, cucumbers, corn, cantaloupe, green beans
