Skyler Goodwin's Memorial Wall...

Thank you so much to the time, talents and treasures that Airan and Chloene put in to make this dream become a reality. They worked tirelessly along with Sarah Williams to make this happen. If you haven't seen it you can find this along the Kindergarten wall near Mrs. Rea's classroom. It absolutely speaks volumes to the love our campus shows to all children! The art work was completed by Airan and Chloene, The butterflies were created by students, the quote was found by Sarah Williams... absolutely breathtaking, thank you all! Skyler's parents are going to come to visit on


After School Classes

Please make sure you are walking your students to the After School Clubs. We had little ones in the Green Room when there were no adults present on Yoga Day. Make sure that a teacher is walking the students...this could be the same teacher that also takes Extended Day.

Speaking of Yoga: They will be meeting their teacher at the outside Ramp of Kelly's door.


The Staff Workout winner is Andrea Bianchi!!

Staff workouts now begin at 3:00 pm in the green room.

February Workout Schedule:

  • Weds 2/1
  • Weds 2/8
  • Mon 2/13
  • Tues 2/21


Parent Conferences are FRIDAY! If you have not reached out to parents of students you have academic and/or behavior concerns, You need to do so now! You do not need to meet with all parents during this conference time only those that you have specific concerns about or if the parent requests to meet with you. Lisa, Katie, Alison and I can attend conferences if you would like us to. Please just get in touch with one of us and we would be happy to meet with you and the parents.

Remember if you are looking at retention (the paperwork already needed to be completed) this is the time you create goals that the child needs to meet to be successful and possibly move up.


Last week you probably talked about Self Control. This week I have added How to Join in a Group. It seems a lot of the issues we have on the playground is Joining in a Group correctly. How do we go about asking to be apart of something. It's funny, because kids are not the only ones who might have issues with this. I have watched adults struggle with this too..especially if they were never taught how to join a group correctly!


Our District Job Fair is February 4th...let your friends know if they are interested in working for LESD!

Pass on to anyone who is interesting in joining the LESD Family!
FREE Parenting Class sponsored by LESD. We will have copies available for you to hand out during Conferences!
