Tiger Family News
From Mrs. Malin...
Our mission at London is for all students to reach high levels of achievement. Our teachers are working relentlessly to teach students essential standards and support students who need intervention and who need extension after learning essential standards.
How can you help as parents?
* First and foremost, make sure your child is on time and at school all day long every single day unless quarantined by a medical professional or having a fever. The district attendance policy is in effect which is 10 days absent for any reason per school year excluding quarantines by medical professionals.
* Second, read books aloud to your child at home on a regular basis. This is one of the most effective ways to improve reading!
* Third, limit the amount of technology, YouTube, and video games at home and ensure there is no access to them when they should be sleeping.
* Last, ensure that your child goes to bed at an appropriate time so they get a good night's sleep.
With so much negativity in the world and on social media, we encourage you to help be a change in the world! Be a role model for your child. They are listening to your words, your tone, and how you respond to challenges....even when you think they aren't! Share positivity on social media. We would love for you to share positive things about our school with others. We are teaching our students how to be a positive influence on those around them, and we encourage you to do this alongside with us! We are all better together! :)

Fundraiser will take place November 1st through November 15th.
We need every child to sell at least 5 cards! There will be prizes!
Students who sell 10 cards each will get to SLIME MRS. MALIN!!!
Due to COVID restrictions, our PTO funds are at an all time low. We need everyone's help! This money is used to provide t-shirts for every child, pay for transportation costs for field trips, provide supplies for Christmas parties, provide a Christmas trip to the movies for all students, field day snow cones and supplies, classroom supplies, and more!
Has a staff member gone above and beyond for you or your child? Let us know so that we can celebrate them!
