A Message from Mrs. Roth

As most of you know, we are in our last three weeks of eLearning. Thank you for continuing the communication and support during this challenging time. We are all learning together and I am extremely proud of our staff, students and families. It certainly takes as village to work through these unprecedented times. Again, we appreciate you!


At the end of this school year, we will be saying good-bye to our two retirees, Terriann Murray, 4th Grade Teacher and Ardis Beck, Special Education Teacher. We will be celebrating them in a variety of ways with social distancing protocol, however, if you are interested in joining us in this celebration, please send a card to our school at LBW, 1420 W. University in their honor.


At this time we also have other staff leaving LBW. Mr. Lentsch has requested to move to the 8th grade science position at the Mitchell Middle School, Katie Erwin, Special Education Paraeducator will be moving to St. Louis, Missouri due to her husband's job promotion and Lisa Blumenberg-Switzer, LBW Kitchen Manager has accepted a position as Food Service Director in the Hansen School District. We certainly will miss these three and appreciate their numerous contributions to our school.


Again, thank you parents for your communication and support. We've got this!
