Loggerhead Letter

December 2022

From the Desk of Dorsey

Loggerhead Families,

We are gearing up for another exciting month here at Laurel Hill. Our K-2 students are participating in their winter iReady benchmark assessments. Our K students are excited for an upcoming field trip, our 1st grade students are learning about holiday traditions around the world, and our 2nd grade students are learning about economics as they prepare for their winter workshop. We are so proud of their hard work, and a big thanks to our teachers and staff for creating such high-quality learning experiences for our students.

Speaking of kudos- I want to give a BIG kudos to Mrs. Boardman, Mrs. Gross, our special area team, and most importantly...our 2nd grade students! We had a packed house last week for our holiday performance of The Mitten, and it did not disappoint. I hope you enjoyed it as much as I did!

As we close out 2022, I wish all of you a safe, happy, and relaxing holiday season with family and friends. Thank you for all you do for Laurel Hill!


Ms. Dorsey

The PTA board has been busy discussing the staff wishlists and are slowly chipping away with research and purchases. So far, we have purchased an eye scanner for the school nurse, provided Ms. Boardman resources for her recurring 2nd grade show, speaker with bluetooth microphone for carline dismissal and magna tiles for Kindergarten.
