Principal's Report

Hello Lewis and Clark Families,

As we turn the calendar to March, a sense of renewal begins. Spring should be showing up soon...let's be will show up sometime between now and July 4th! We look ahead and see that we've got a lot to do. From engaging lessons to spring events, we've got a lot of great things planned for our cubs. Looking ahead to March, we've got a month filled with conferences, spring break, and PTO events.

We look forward to the conversations at the conferences this week and next. It's a great way to connect, talk about growth, and build stronger home and school connections. We hope you enjoy the spring break with your family and are able to get outside to enjoy our "springish" weather.

If there is anything I can help with, please reach out to the office or email me at Take care!

Mr. Hoheisel

Tips for Being a Good Listener

As a parent/guardian, sometimes you may feel as though your child does not listen to you. It is important that you communicate your needs and feelings to your child in an effective way. A simple suggestion to improve communication between you and your child is to use “I” messages rather than “You” messages (which often create an oppositional situation). For example, instead of saying, “You always leave your dirty dishes on the table. Can’t you pick up after yourself?” say, “When you leave your dishes on the table, I get frustrated because it makes extra work for me when I get home and I’m trying to make dinner.” Visit for more information.
