Weekly Dolphin Blast

Week of January 8, 2023

Happy New Year Dolphin Families!

I hope this communication finds your family enjoying the final hours of Winter Break. It is also my hope that your family had an opportunity to connect, create memories, and enjoy your time together the last three weeks. We are looking forward to seeing the smiling faces of our Dolphins back on campus tomorrow!

As a reminder, due to the increased travel and social interactions that often occur during school breaks, it is recommended that students and staff get tested for COVID-19 prior to returning to school following major breaks and holidays (e.g., Thanksgiving, winter, spring). Before we left for Winter break, your child received a COVID-19 at-home test kit. Each test kit contained two tests. Please test your child tonight or tomorrow morning, Monday, January 9th, prior to bringing him/her to school.

If your child tests positive, please email the school health office at Be sure to include your child’s full name and the date they tested positive. If your child experienced symptoms prior to testing positive, please include the date of symptom onset and a list of the symptoms they experienced.

With Dolphin pride,

Mrs. Bedard

SAVE THE DATE: Martin Luther King Jr. Day - January 16th

Mark your calendars as there will be no school for students Monday, January 16th, in observance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. While there may be no school on January 16th, it doesn’t mean there isn’t work to be done! We encourage our students and their families to find a way to volunteer in our community, or attend a local event like the MLK Jr. parade in downtown San Diego to honor Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.


Throw those New Year’s resolutions out! Our next DOUBLE Dine Out will be on Monday, January 23rd at Shake Shack and Jeni's Ice Cream in La Costa (The Beacon). Come enjoy a family treat and support LCM too! Make sure to mention you’re an LCM family and use our special codes so they’ll donate 25% back to our school!


Reminder to turn in your Winter Break Reading Raffle sheets to the front office before January 25th! TK-1st graders need to draw a picture of the book they read over winter break, and 2nd-5th grade students need to write a summary of the book. Raffle winners will be announced at the Flag Salute on January 27, 2023. There’s still time to finish reading your books!


Our next PTO meeting will be held on Monday, January 30th at 5:00 pm in the Library at school. The LCM PTO meets monthly and all LCM families and teachers are invited to attend!


Come jump at Sky Zone Carlsbad and raise money for LCM all day on Sunday, February 5th! Visit Sky Zone (6133 Innovation Way) to purchase your child’s tickets in-store for $20 and a portion of the proceeds will go back to LCM. Make sure to mention you’re there for the LCM fundraiser! *You may complete the waiver online but tickets must be purchased in-store.
