This Week at the HOME of the Lancers

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by African Americans and a time for recognizing their central role in U.S. history. Also known as African American History Month, the event grew out of “Negro History Week,” the brainchild of noted historian Carter G. Woodson and other prominent African Americans. Since 1976, every U.S. president has officially designated the month of February as Black History Month.

The Student Recognition Breakfast for Ownership will be held on Thursday, February 10th at 7:20 AM. Congratulations to all of the Lancers selected by their teachers. We are proud of you.

Lancer sports continue this week. The Lady Lancer Basketball Team and Boys Swim Team are continuing to work hard and improve daily.

NO SCHOOL on Friday, February 11th due to Staff Professional Development.

As the weather changes, please make sure that your student is prepared and dressing appropriately for the colder weather. We will continue to go outside for recess throughout the day. Soon we will all be wearing our winter gear!! If you are in need of a coat, hats, gloves, scarf, boats, etc. please reach out to your child's teacher.

Just a reminder that all students are required to wear a mask. Please make sure that your student comes to school with a mask every day. We only have a limited supply. We will continue to social distance to the best of our ability and practice hand washing/sanitizing often. Students are allowed to remove their masks during lunch and outdoor recess. Please send extra masks to school with your student in case they lose them or need a replacement. Please keep your students home if they are feeling ill. Please feel free to contact the Health Office with any questions or concerns at 608-361-3835.
