LES Elementary September 4, 2020

A Note from the Principal...

It's September and we've made it midterms! You should receive an update on your child's grade this week. Parent Teacher Conferences will be coming up at the end of this month, but feel free to reach out to your child's teacher at anytime. They are more than willing to help in any way they can! In this newsletter, you will find information regarding beginning of the year testing. Please make sure to view this information. Enjoy the three day weekend!

Important Information

Beginning of the Year Testing

All students in grades K-4 are given beginning, middle, and end of the year assessments so that we are able to evaluate student progress throughout the year. Loogootee Elementary is a schoolwide Title school. Each year, we are required to hold a meeting to explain what this means and to explain our assessments that we use. Due to COVID, we are unable to hold this meeting in person. Below, you will find a link to a Google Form that will include a video explaining the assessment for your child's grade level. We ask that you please fill out the Google Form for attendance purposes. Also, there is a link to a resource page for extra practice for your child.

Students of the Month

Congratulations to Emersyn Smith, LJ Marks, Emsley Waggner, Jase Dages, Reid Wagler, Haven Ferguson, Verity Johnson, Lincoln Campbell, Angel Gonzalez, Jackson Lengacher, Olivia Padgett, Kelci Hamm, Jake Lottes, and Mrs. Lindsay Burch who were selected as September Students/Staff of the Month. The "Mane" Trait for September was Show Up.

Final Week for Trash Bags

This is just a friendly reminder that trash bag orders and money are due Tuesday, September 8th.

LES Picture Day Coming Soon!

School pictures will be on Monday, September 14th. In the past, we have taken class pictures on the same day. Due to our current situation, we are going to wait on class pictures. If things get better in the future, we may possibly schedule class pictures at a later date. Picture envelopes were sent home this week, however, you may also order pictures online. Please see information attached below.
