A Message from our Principals
While we were always hoping to come back to school this year, it has become clear that we are not in a position to come together safely at this time. Per Governor Tony Evers' Executive Order 28, released on Thursday of this week, Wisconsin and Muskego-Norway school buildings will be closed for instruction for the remainder of the 2019-20 school year. Our distance learning will continue until the end of the year. Watch for future communications on the implications going forward, including how we will manage student materials still at school. At the forefront of our mind is the safety and health of our students and staff. We hope you and your family are well.
Linda O’Bryan, Principal
John McEwing, Associate Principal

Well Being Check Ins
A Note from your School Psychologist
I’ve been reading quite a few articles on how we can stay emotionally well during this time of quarantine, physical distancing, and uncertainty. People close to me have lost their jobs, or they’re working jobs that put them at risk. They are managing the best they can--sometimes hour by hour. Most of the articles I’ve read all tell us the same thing--it’s stressful to be living in these situations right now (ummm, I’m pretty sure we all know that!). I don’t want this note to restate what everything out there tells us, because that’s not helpful. What I do want to share is this: There's nothing more inspiring than the complexity and beauty of the human heart. ~Cynthia Hand
For those who know me, art is a large part of my life. My parents are both artists, I love to paint, weld, and draw; and I’ve taught my children to always turn to art--in times of happiness, sadness, anger, etc. My office at Lake Denoon has a ton of art work posted on the walls. In this time, others around us have created art, and I wanted to share some of what I’ve found. I think these capture the complexity and beauty of our hearts during this time.
Grab some sidewalk chalk, finger paints, or colored pencils. No one is your critic. Make some art--on your own or with your child. You’ll feel your own heart’s beauty shine through.

Mr. Falsetti was out for a run with his dog when he spotted one of his students. He can't run past an opportunity to find out what Ben has been up to and to talk about the books Ben has been reading - while maintaining proper social distancing guidelines, of course.
LDMS Art classes made paper cranes, which are traditionally a symbol of hope and healing during challenging times.
