Principal's Message

Students and staff have been having some spooky fun as we enjoy the fall months. As we continue to enjoy the change in seasons we can take time to reflect on what we're grateful for.

This school year, students and staff have been learning about the core competencies of social and emotional learning. Here are some helpful tips for self management and awareness with remote learning.

  • Talk to kids about the connection between bodies and brains and what happens in their bodies when they feel frustrated, excited, or sad. This awareness helps kids recognize and manage their emotions.
  • If you have other devices in your house, keep them out of your kid's workspace if possible. This can also mean shutting down phones, keeping phones in a designated place for the day, and putting away remotes if temptation takes over.

Fall Conferences

Our teachers are in the process of setting up our annual fall conferences to update you on your child’s progress. Thus far, we are very happy with how things have gone with our remote and hybrid schedules this year. Instead of live conferences scheduled on certain dates, the teachers will be setting up their own conference dates and times which will happen either through Zoom/Google Meet or on the phone. Your child’s teacher will be in touch to set up a time to meet by mid-December.

PTA Holiday Drive

The Lumberton PTA's annual Holiday Drive will be starting on Monday, November 9th. This program helps to provide children in our community that are less fortunate with coats, clothes, food, and gifts from each child’s specific wish list. In 2019, we were able to help 55 Lumberton children from 24 different families; this could not have been done without your continued support. Please look for an email with more details and a flyer with your homeroom's sponsored child coming soon.
