Happy Friday!

Another great week at Lander. September brought so many fun activities, we are looking forward to many more in the month of October! Don't forget the PTG meeting, this coming Wednesday, we meet the first Wednesday of the Month at 7:00pm in the Media Center.


Our Lander Spirit Wear shirts have arrived, thanks to our PTG, every student will receive a Lander shirt! 3rd grade students will get them on Friday and are asked to wear them to the field trip on Monday. All other grade levels will bring them home on Monday.

The next few weeks will be busy with several events:

Gifted Screening Information

The Mayfield City School District will be administering district wide testing this fall. There is no need to study for these assessments, however, attendance is very important, and we are asking for your support in making sure that your child is at school and encourage them to do their best.

A report of your child’s achievement will be sent home following the assessment. If you have any questions regarding our district assessments, please feel free to contact
