What’s New at LCS

clobes@lafayettecharter.k12.mn.us 

We did it!

As the school year comes to a close, I would like to say how proud I am of each and every one of our students. Thank you parents, teachers and staff for supporting our students in many ways this year. I’m forever grateful for this amazing LCS family!

As we begin to wrap up our last week of the school year, we still have a lot going on. Check out this week’s events:

Monday- Field Trip to Amaze’n Farmyard- Please make sure students are wearing socks & tennis shoes (there is a bounce house and students MUST have socks to enjoy). There will be no student cell phones allowed on the bus and students will not be able to make purchases there. Don’t forget a water bottle!

Tuesday- The 6th-8th graders will be ditch cleaning in the morning & the afternoon will be a reward day for testing. Students have been earning tickets to our concession stand – they will be able to purchase their goodies then!

Wednesday- LAST DAY OF SCHOOL- 8th grade graduation will begin with a small social hour from 9-9:30 with the graduation ceremony from 9:30-10:30 (roughly). We will have an early out at 1pm for staff development. 

Our teachers will be in the buidling until Friday, May 27th if you have any questions or need to stop in your child’s classroom. We will be sending out 4th quarter report cards so watch for those next week.

Thank you for a wonderful year & we cannot wait to see you next year!

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

Kind Regards,

Mrs. Clobes
