Newsletter - January 2016

Happy New Year!

Happy 2016 ! As we start a new year, it's natural to take a look back. As I scroll the calendar back to the first day of school, I see 6th Grade Orientation, Parent's Back to School Pep Rally, Open House, House Bill 5 Night, Fine Art Performances, PTA Meetings, Sports Events, and Athletes and A's- Celebrating Academics. We had a great 1st Semester.
The Lake Olympia staff will continue to focus on quality teaching and doing what's best for children.

Students will return to school on Tuesday, January 5th. Monday, January 4th is a teacher staff development day. Also January 18th is a student holiday, Dr. Martin Luther King Day.
School will be closed on Monday, January 18th.

Progress Report 5 will be mailed home January 28th.
