What’s New at LCS

clobes@lafayettecharter.k12.mn.us 

Thank you to all the families that joined us for Family STEAM night. We had a fun evening and enjoyed meeting our local artist, Raelin. Thank you to the PROS committee for the treats and parents for the pumpkin donations.

On Thursday this week, dental assistants from Healthy Smiles Inc., will be coming to LCS to offer preventative care to qualifying families. If you’re interested in the services, please fill out the form that came home last week or contact the LCS Office and we can get you the paperwork. The paperwork must be filled out to ensure services.

Also on Thursday, we will be welcoming Connecting Nicollet County in for a tour (after school hours) to preview everything LCS has to offer.

On Friday, LCS will be giving back to Lafayette the 6th-8th graders will start the day ditch cleaning along highway 15 for the Adopt-A-Highway program and at 2pm, k-8th grade will go out into the community to pick up trash. The kids enjoy getting out into the community and making a difference!

As always, contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

Kind Regards,

Mrs. Clobes
