LaCoste Elementary Newsletter

2022-2023 School Year / Week of Sept. 5th - 9th

From the Front Office:

LaCoste Families,

We are excited to host our grandparents for a grandparents breakfast this Monday. Please be aware that parking will only be available in the back parking lot of the campus located closest to the gym/ cafeteria area off Medina Street. This event is for grandparents only. It is important that you verify your Skyward Family Access to ensure that the grandparents that will be joining us are listed for your children in Skyward. We will be checking identification and having grandparents wait in the cafeteria for their grandchild to arrive. This is for the safety of your students and all our campus. We appreciate your support and involvement as we host our grandparents on campus.

Parent Volunteers needed!

We are looking for 2 parents to attend the statewide Parental involvement conference December 8-10 to represent LaCoste. The 2 parent volunteers will be responsible for bringing back information to share and present on with the family engagement committee. If you are interested in attending the conference please email . We encourage you to look at the attachments below for more information.

LCE Bleacher Creature Night - Sept. 9th

Please wear your LaCoste Elementary shirt and be at the entrance closest to the field house no later than 5:45pm.

Only LaCoste Elementary students are eligible for free admission to the football game on Friday, September 9th. Parents and non-LaCoste children will need to purchase a ticket to stay for the game.

If you haven’t received your LaCoste Elementary shirt for your student, your child’s teacher will have a sticker that will get them free admission to the game.

Student Campus Job Application

Caught Being a Leader!

Click HERE to see this week's leaders!

Students cannot only be caught being a leader at school by staff, but also at home by you! If you see your child exhibiting any of the habits on their own without prompting, fill out this form! Examples: Habit 3: Put First Things First - Your child went to a quiet area in your home and began doing their homework without being told. Habit 5: Seek First To Understand, Then To Be Understood - Your child listened to their sibling’s point of view during an argument, understood why their sibling was upset, and did not push their own opinion of what happened or interrupt.

Students that are caught being a leader will have their name announced on the morning announcements and will be able to choose a charm for their Leader In Me Chain. Students proudly wear their chains to our Campus Awards.

CLICK HERE to tell us about how you caught your leader using their habits at home!

PTO Corner

We had a great first PTO meeting last week. Our new budget for the school year was presented and voted on. Biz O’Campo explained the Big Kahuna Fundraiser and fun door prizes were handed out! If you missed this one our next one will be even more fun on Thursday, October 13 at 5:30pm. We will have our local fire department there as special guest speakers and showing off their truck.

Our Big Kahuna Fundraiser has officially started. Please check your student’s folder for the packet and information on setting up their personal online shopping site to share with out of town friends and family. With the proceeds from our fundraiser, PTO is able to pay for student incentives, field trips and so much more!

Caught Reading!

LaCoste Elementary students often go above and beyond! With that in mind, we love to acknowledge when they do. Reading is an important everyday activity. It shows great examples of the Leadership Habits we know are the foundation of our success. We like to “Catch Students Reading”. Examples of that would be; students independently choosing to read as a leisure activity or students achieving a reading goal they had set for themselves, like finishing their first chapter book or reading their first book independently. Each week a name is randomly drawn from those submissions. Their name is displayed on a bulletin board in the library, mentioned in our morning campus announcements and posted in our Parent Newsletter. The student is also given a prize for their accomplishment.

This week’s winner is Adriel Teran!

Adriel was caught by Mrs. Villarreal when he found all the short i words in a passage.

You can be a star when you get caught reading!
