Lovett Elementary Owl News

Creating strong home school connections for student success

Welcome Back

Welcome back and welcome to my new way of communicating with our school community. Through this weekly newsletter, I hope to keep us all connected, learning and growing together as a Lovett school community. You can find this newsletter posted every Wednesday on the Lovett website on my page. We are now in full swing and it has been a great start to the 16-17 school year. It was great to see so many parents out at Open House. I was so excited to share with you our school accomplishments and everything we worked on during the summer to continue making Lovett Elementary a phenomenal place to learn. This summer our Lovett team read the book, Mindset, The New Psychology of Success by Carol S. Dweck. During open house I shared some of the philosophy of growth mindset and the power of the word "yet." I invited parents to join us in learning more. As promised, below you will find two brief videos introducing the growth mindset and the power of yet. The Carol Dweck video is a quick watch for adults and the Sesame Street video is great to open the discussion with your children. I am looking forward to another great year of learning and building an even stronger school community!

Late Pick-up

We need everyone's help with ensuring children are picked up on-time. School dismisses at 3:20 and all students not attending extended day or another after school activity should be picked up by 3:35. At 3:35 all students not picked up are brought back into the building to sign in. and parents must enter the building to sign them out. While we understand emergencies and traffic challenges, late pick up should not be a regular occurrence. I encourage you to reach out to our extended day program if they can assist.
