Astro Monthly Message - August

#CelebrateLadd - 50 years of Excellence

Welcome Back Astros

Dear Astro Families,


We are very excited to see our Astros return on Sept. 4th. Lots of exciting things happened at Ladd over the summer including fencing to secure our perimeter, a new parking lot and bus area, new faucets in all our rooms, carpeting in our music room, fresh paint on our exterior pods and a basketball court for our upper elementary students. On August 26th we will build a gazebo for an outdoor learning space. It is going to be great.


Looking forward to another great year as we celebrate Ladd Acres 50th birthday. Look for many engaging and fun activities in the year to come.


With warm regards,

Francesca Sinapi

Principal, Ladd Acres Elementary


DREAM big... REACH for the stars...TOGETHER we ACHIEVE success!

What's happened at Ladd this summer?

NEW Parking Lot Procedures for Student Drop Off and Pick Up

Please note the new parking lot drop off procedures for our families. Students need to be dropped off in front of the school. Upon entering from Cornelius Pass Road, follow the arrows to the front of the school. The goal is to keep our families and community safe by allowing for a longer line to drop off/pick up our Astros. Please do not use the Bus and Staff Parking lot entrance. This is a new procedure and we will need time to work out the snafus. Your patience and flexibility are appreciated.
