Loggerhead Letter

October 2022

From the Desk of Dorsey

Loggerhead Families,

We are excited for such a great start to the year at Laurel Hill! It has been so much fun getting to know your students. I have been in and out of classrooms and have really been impressed by the learning going on- I am so proud of our staff and students for their hard work.

In the next few weeks, you will have an opportunity to meet with your child's teacher to discuss their progress. This is an opportunity for you to learn more about their growth, any struggles, and to continue growing a partnership with your teacher. We value these opportunities for discussion, and our goal is for 100% participation. First quarter report cards will be sent home via email on or around October 28- if you do not receive your child's report card by October 31, please reach out to Mr. Sims. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me.

Once again, PTA is planning a great month of events for our students. We are so excited for our first ever Color Run, which will take place October 14. This event is our big fundraiser for the year, and our goal is $70,000! Please check out the PTA Updates below for your student's color dash schedule- we invite you to come cheer them on!

We are also looking forward to a visit from Pamela Brownstein, author of the book Low-Ku: Haikus of the Lowcountry on October 5. This will be the first of a few author visits to LHP this year and I'm thankful for the PTA helping us bring these experiences to our students.

Last, but certainly not least, Officer Jean has noticed that some parents do not have proper child restraint systems (car seats/booster seats) in their car. Remember, booster seats are required by law unless your child is 8 years old OR over 57" tall.

Thanks for all of your support!


Ms. Dorsey
