From the Principal:

Labor Day weekend is here....almost! What an amazing first 3 weeks of school we have had! We are off to a great start at LSRO!

Our students have already learned so much, from their academic learning to learning what it means to be a LifeLeader all around our school! Encourage your child to share with you all that they are learning. Ask open-ended questions and focus on their answers!

Our Big Kahuna fundraiser is off and running! We would love to have your help in raising money for our school. Our Big Kahuna fundraiser runs through September 12.

Please see an additional flyer on "Coffee and Conversation with the Principal"! I'd love to see you join us for an hour of learning about what is going on at LSRO and a round table discussion over LifeLeader. Hope to see you there!

Have a great 3-day weekend!

Mrs. Shepherd
