Important Dates and Upcoming Events

Wednesday, September 11 - Curriculum Night

This is an important evening in our home-school partnership as we start a new school year. Please plan on attending. Due to the number of people in the building, we are requesting that you find alternate arrangements for your children for the evening. Thank you for understanding. Our schedule for the evening is:

We are offering a Technology Safety session at 6:00 and again at 7:30. This is a REQUIRED session for all third grade parents, and all parents of new fourth and fifth graders. It is available to all other parents as an optional session. Our Media Specialist, Mrs. Morrison, and our Technology Specialist, Mrs. Koncagul, will be sharing ways to keep our children safe in an ever increasing digital society.

Mrs. Vohs will be hosting an informal session on English Language instruction for any interested families at 6:45 in our LGI.

Tuesday, September 17 - Picture Day

There are two ways to order school pictures:

1) You can turn in the paper order form that will be coming home on Tuesday of this week, or;

2) You can order pictures online directly from Kaiser using the school code LEONARD2019.

Tuesday, September 17 - PTO Meeting, 7:00 pm, Media Center

Wednesday, September 18 - First Bagel Day

Bagel days will be every Wednesday. This school year, we will be using a pre-paid method to minimize waste and increase efficiency. You'll just have to pay once and never worry about bagel money again for the year! Children will not be allowed to bring a dollar to purchase a bagel on a weekly basis. All orders must be prepaid. If you have purchased an All-Access Pass for your child, bagels were included in your donation. If not, you are welcome to use the order form below and reserve bagels for your child for the year.

Wednesday, September 25 - Early Release, 1:09 dismissal

Friday, October 4 - FUN RUN

Thank you to everyone who came out to our Back to School Celebration Friday night! We had a blast! A special thank you to our PTO and Mr. Bosman for the great music!
