LCE News From Mrs. Blaney

December, 2019

"For last year's words belong to last year's language and next year's words await another voice. And to make an end is to make a beginning". -T.S. Eliot

2019 has come to an end, and we are starting a new year together at LCE. School resumes for students on Tuesday, January 7. Enjoy these last days of Winter Break and enjoy this recap of December along with what to look forward to in January...

Chorus Performances

Mrs. Drange and the 5th/6th grade Chorus gave us a great treat in December with their holiday performance. The chorus performed for both students and parents. You may have also seen them at the Tree Lighting Ceremony at Memorial Park.

LCE Spelling Bee Top Spellers

Congratulations to Hannelle Yang, Selena Maimone, Alex Lowry, and Jordana Tsai! These young ladies took 1st - 4th place in the LCE Spelling Bee and will be representing our school at the LCUSD Spelling Bee on January 13. We are very proud of them.

The Buddy System

Cross-aged buddies got together in December to continue to build relationships and have some fun. In this case, I smelled this delicious project before I spotted it!

New Entrance Procedures

Please be patient as we practice our new entrance protocol. All you need to remember is this: When the gates are open, you are free to enter and exit through the gates. When the gates are closed, you will need to enter and exit through the office. It is important to sign yourself in and out again if you are actually entering and exiting campus. If you are dropping off a lunch, you do not need to sign in because you will not need to enter campus from the office area. If you are dropping off or picking up at CEC, you will need to let one of our office staff members know before you enter campus. We may need to modify the entrance protocol as time goes on, but these initial rules are important, and we ask that you spread the word or share the video. Thank you!

Challenge Success

Do you recall the LetGrow Project? This is a nice article for this time of year when students have one more week of break and may even complain of being b-o-r-e-d. I wasn't allowed to use that word as a kid, so I have a hard time writing it. :) Follow LetGrow on Instagram!
