Happy American Education Week and Support Staff Week!

Happy American Education Week and Happy Support Staff Week! This week we will spend some time each day recognizing a special group of support staff employees here at LVE. On Thursday, all of our Support Staff will invited to the “Donut Know What We Do Without You” donut celebration in the lounge from beginning at 7:00 a.m. We will also celebrate American Education Week by honoring all of our Teacher of the Year nominees this week. Teacher of the Year ballots will be in your mailboxes by tomorrow morning. Please cast your vote and place it in Doug’s mailbox by Wednesday afternoon. We will announce our Teacher of the Year sometime Thursday.

As we prepare and begin to look ahead to our Thanksgiving holiday break, it is that time of the year to reflect, appreciate and give thanks for all of our blessings. We are very thankful and blessed to have the opportunity work with such a talented and dedicated team each and every day. We are grateful for your willingness, hard work, dedication and everything that you do for our school and our students! We hope everyone gets to enjoy the extra days off with family and friends (and great food)!


Have a great week!

Doug and Melissa

After School Tutoring Update

The After School Tutoring program will look quite different this year than in years past. Since we only have four tutors for the program, we will be limited in the number of students we can invite. This year we will only be able to invite approximately 30 students. We have made the decision to invite only students in 3rd through 5th grade. We will be using the READ 180 program as curriculum resources for the After School Tutoring program. We will be sending out student invites early this week. Please encourage any student who are recommended for the program to return their permission slip in as soon as possible.

Veteran's Day Committee

Thank you for all the work that went into our Veteran's Day Assembly. This one day is not nearly enough to thank our Veterans, but we know your work made this day special for them.

Sub Supporting-Laura Mueller and Michael Jandt

Thank you for taking time of your own to support subs in our buildings. Both of these teachers have gone above the call of duty to support subs in our building simply because it is what is best for students. Laura has given numerous plan minutes away to help subs recently. Michael came in on a day he was off to check that his sub had everything she needed to teach.
