The LES trash bag fundraiser ends Monday, September 3rd. If you are participating, please have order forms turned in so that we can process the order. Also, thank you for your support. We understand it is a task to participate in fundraisers, however they are important to our school. The money we raise helps to provide rewards/incentives, host events such as Veteran's Day and Grandparent's Day, go on field trips, provide recess equipment, and much much more! Orders should arrive in 4-6 weeks.
Box Tops for Education
Over the years, Box Tops for Education has provided LES the opportunity to earn a little extra money on the side through Box Tops labels on various products. They are slowly going away from putting the labels on products, however, they have made it much easier! Just download the App and scan your receipt to start earning cash for Loogootee Elementary today!

Beginning with the 2019-2020 school year, Indiana’s schools must meet added requirements to identify, as early as possible, struggling readers who show risk factors for dyslexia and then provide systematic, sequential, and multisensory instruction to meet their needs. In December all students in grades kindergarten through second grade will undergo a universal screener to check their skills in six different areas. You can go to the school website for more information.
Car Rider Arrival/Dismissal Procedures
Thank you for your patience with the new car rider arrival/dismissal procedure. It is beginning to go quicker. Below are just a few reminders to help speed up the process.
- If you have to get out of the vehicle for any reason, please pull up past the safety poles so that we can keep the line moving.
- Make sure your child exits the vehicle on the right side nearest the sidewalk.
- If someone different is picking up your child, make sure they know the procedure.
- Do not allow your child out until your vehicle is between the safety poles or the supervisor has allowed you to.
- Have your child ready to exit when pulling up to the safety poles.

Mane Traits of a Lion for Success
Last year, LCSC incorporated the "Mane" Traits of a Lion for Success. The ten traits above are a common set of expectations for Loogootee students K-12 to learn and live by. Over the last week, Mrs. Wade visited classrooms to explain the Mane traits and what each one looks like at school. These "Mane" Traits are also used to encourage positive behavior.
Each month, we highlight a Mane Trait and select someone from each class as Student of the Month. Each student also has a Mane Trait card that they can get punched when a teacher observes the traits in action. Once a student gets 10 punches on their card, they can turn it in for a prize and are recognized at Monday Morning Meetings. At the end of each month, we have a drawing for 10 winners to win bigger prizes. We will also be drawing one card at the end of the year for a Grand Prize!
