NOVEMBER 2, 2022 - NEWSLETTER
Dear Lighthouse families,
We have been enjoying the spectacular fall weather during Physical Education classes, our break times, and at the end of the day during dismissal! It has been fun to see the joy as students find all sorts of ways to entertain themselves with the fall leaves.
November has arrived and we have three solid weeks of learning before the Thanksgiving holiday. This is an important learning time as students dive into their inquiries and continue to work on their learning goals. Thank you for continuing to support your student getting to school each day on time.
Reminders and Updates:
Extended Learning Day: Our next Extended Learning Day is coming up on November 11. These days are designed for students to do work related to their inquiry project which cannot easily be done in the classroom such as library research, talking with an expert, conducting experiments, or a field trip.

School and so much more
In a few short weeks, homemade drones assembled by students will fill the air outside Westwood Intermediate and Middle School. They are coming together thanks to the after-school Code & Fly Camp. This month, the high school gym will come alive with the sounds of indoor Pickleball.
These new programs are available through Spring Lake Park Schools Community Education. Each program is designed to help participants learn new skills, connect with others who share similar interests and — maybe most importantly – have fun. At SLP, we’re school and so much more.
Now is a great time for your child, your family or yourself to get involved. There are also opportunities for community members to teach a class.
Programs for the whole family are running now with a new wave of youth programs starting up next week. Browse and register today.
