Dear Families,

Happy Friday!


We are excited to share our second parent newsletter of the school year, which highlights important school news and weekly updates.


Our LGAM community had an amazing week as we celebrated our first spirit week, conducted our first school wide virtual assembly, and connected with parents during "Coffee with the Principal". This is only the beginning of many more events and celebrations to come.


Please take the time this weekend to refresh, recharge, and prioritize self care as we prepare for next week. As always, we are thankful and grateful for your continuous support as we work together to ensure a successful school year for all LGAM students.
