Thank you all for signing up for a Conference time via the sign up link that Mrs. Poppen shared with everyone. I look forward to meeting with all of you to discuss the progress your child has made so far this year! It is hard to believe we've almost finished the first third of the school year! Time flies when you're having fun I guess!

I would like to have you complete the survey that is linked below to give me an idea of any concerns you might want to discuss during conferences, as well as how you think the year is going so far for your child. Thank you for your input!

Veteran's Day Program

The students did an excellent job of signing at The Veteran's Day Program that was held on Friday. Mrs. Larsen always does a great job of preparing the students and they sing so beautifully together. It is always a wonderful ceremony that the High School Student Council puts on and it is nice to have the students at LIW as part of that program!

I am especially proud of their respectful behavior during the program. The students also worked hard on their art projects & poems. They looked so nice on display during the program. You can check them out in the hallway when you come for Conferences!
