LCES United: Together We Are More!

Mrs. Hladun's Tidings

What a magical week we just had. I hope you enjoyed watching your children shine at the winter holiday performances. It never ceases to amaze me at how wonderfully the children perform - they memorize so many songs and solo lines, they are so focused on following the conductor's instructions, and it all comes together so seamlessly! What a great example of Colt's United!


If you see Mr. Markus or Mr. Arty on campus, please be sure to thank them for their part in making the shows wonderful - their work behind the scenes was vital!


The holidays are right around the corner. A few important things to add to your family's calendars:


  • Monday, 12/18-Thursday, 12/21: Early Release Days (grades 1-5 dismissed at 1:40 pm, AM/PM K is on a typical Monday schedule)
  • Friday, 12/22-Sunday, 1/7: Winter Break (school is not in session & school office is closed)
  • Monday, 1/8: School back in session with a typical Early Release Monday schedule



Our PTC put on a wonderful book fair last week, as well. We appreciate the efforts of Mrs. Jenkins and Mrs. Novelo, the parent volunteers and our PTC Board to make it happen! Our library continues to expand it's holdings thanks in part to the contributions from the book fair back to our library.

Pick Up after School

Your student's safety is #1. As a reminder, students can be picked up in three places after school:


1. you can drive through the loop at the front of the school and pick up your child along the curb;

2. you can drive into and park in the lot by the baseball diamonds and your kiddo can meet you at your parked car;

3. you can park in any marked spot or along the street and walk to meet your child on the main patio.


Please do NOT park in front of residential driveways when picking up/dropping off your child.

Lost & Found

Our lost & found is overflowing again. Any clothing with a name on it will be returned to the child (or sibling). We will be donating all items left on our L & F racks on Friday, 12/22. We'll pull the racks out as often as we can for you to look through, weather permitted. Our L & F is always available in our MPR, too.

DVD of Winter Performances

You can pick up a DVD of the winter performances from last week in the office. DVDs are $10 each, and there is a DVD for each day (3rd grade & choir; 4th & 5th grades; 1st & 2nd grades). Each DVD has both the dress rehearsal and final performance on it.
