Lunch Balances

We would ask families with high lunch balances if you could make an effort to reconcile them in the near future. We appreciate your effort with this and if you have any questions about your balance, please call the school. All balances must be paid in full by Wednesday, May 29th.

Plant Sale

I would like to extend a huge thank you to everyone who came out to support our plant/bake sale and scholastic book fair. Your support was amazing and will get us off to a great start in the garden and the greenhouse next year.

This Week

We are certainly winding down the year and you can feel it as you walk through the hallways. There is just more excitement abound as students finish work, anticipate upcoming events and think about the impending warm days of summer. However, we are not done yet. There are still many learning opportunities to be had and we need to remain focused to the end. LCS is anxiously waiting the annual Track & Field Day on May 22nd starting at 8:45 (rain date is set for May 23rd). All students will take part in a number of events and races. We invite parents, grandparents and the community to come and enjoy our day with us. We will have a number of the standard events, but will also add some new ones. I encourage all students to drink plenty of water to stay hydrated, bring sun protection, wear comfortable clothes, tennis shoes and get plenty of sleep. It will be a fun, busy day! Then on the 24th we have the reward trip to the movies. This is for students who did their very best on the NWEAs and MCAs and met their personal goals. This means that students took their time, stayed on task and showed some growth. The NWEA test has an ‘engagement’ feature built in and can track how long a student spends on a question and goals were pre-determined by student and teachers. Reminder the last day of Preschool is the 23rd thanks to all for a great preschool year!

Whooping Cough (Pertussis)

There has been an outbreak in Sibley County with ties to Nicollet County regarding whooping cough. The main thing to watch for is a cough that lasts more than 7 days.

Look at what we’re doing!
