SEPTEMBER FAMILY CHALLENGE - Attend a Louisville Lions Activity

Did you complete the August Gaming Challenge? I received several photos of families playing their favorite games. The month of September is a crazy time for schedules and trying to be in eight places at once. I challenge you to go to one of the Louisville Lion activities as a family. We have softball, cross country, football, and volleyball games going on. Chances are pretty high that you will see my family at most of the home events. If you happen to see us at an event, please stop and introduce yourself. I wish you all the best tackling those busy schedules!!

This school year, we would like to continue to provide the opportunity for staff at Louisville Elementary to enjoy a cup of coffee from Black Sheep Coffee House in Springfield on Fridays. New for this year, we will be making the coffee runs on the first and third school day Fridays of each month. If you are interested in donating money to treat a staff member to a cup of coffee, please send donations in an envelope labeled “coffee” to Lisa Sheehan.

Each Friday, names are drawn to see whose order is paid for by the appreciative families of Louisville. Donations can be made at anytime through the year. Thank you for your generosity!


We are still missing several handbook permission forms in the office. If you lost your copy, please let Lisa Sheehan know and we can get you a new one. We use these forms for the 2019-2020 yearbook, field trip permission, social media shoutouts, and newspaper publishing. Please return these signed forms as soon as possible.
