A Message from the Principal
 
Congratulations to eighth graders Kara Fitzgerald, Veronica Lester, Lila Pinho, Lily Trudeau and Morgan White!  The girls have all applied, been accepted and have all received academic scholarships to Lauralton Hall based on their exceptional performance in math and language arts on the High School Placement test taken last May.

Shopping Showcase Extravaganza News
* Packets were sent home last week. Check your child's backpack!!!

Thank you to all those families who are in compliance with the school dress code. Remember to wear white socks on PE day.

Any clothing that is unclaimed will be placed on the table in the rear of the cafeteria.

School Communications
It is important that all parents check their email and the school's website on a daily basis. This is our means of communication of important information to parents. If you know anyone who has not signed up for email updates, please encourage them to do so by visiting the school website.

Social Media and Internet Safety
Please consider watching this video and use it to evaluate the internet apps your children are using. https://www.today.com/video/apps-for-kids-that-parents-need-to-know-about-yellow-spotafriend-more-1034135619596. It was a Today Show 30 interview and informs parents/students of the good and bad apps out there. 

Emergency Plans
All parents are asked to have their cell phones nearby and turned on during the school day. This is just in case of an emergency or unplanned early dismissal. Please be certain that you have a contingency plan for pick up for your child on such days and that your child knows what it is.

School Security
Security is important. If you are visiting our school at any time , please be certain that you check in with the security guard or come into the school office to sign in and get a visitor's pass before going to the classroom.

Parking Lot Safety
Please obey the parking pattern and speed limit when driving through the back parking lot at dismissal. Please pull into a space to park so you do not need to back up! Please park in a legal space and obey the cones, the chains and the "No Parking "signs.The teachers dismiss the children from the school building directly to you. Please work with us as we strive to maintain a safe environment for all students.

Have a wonderful week!
