Dear LP Families:

This is our last newsletter of 2015. WOW!

Last night's fifth grade chorus and band concert was amazing! I am so proud of our students who have the courage to get on stage and sign and/or play an instrument. And, they do it so well! It was a pleasure to see so many of you there. Mr. Trumpowsky and Mr. Savine deserve a shout-out too!

I wish you a wonderful holiday break with your families and friends. Our school office will be open on December 22, 29, and 30 if you need anything. Other than those days, we will be celebrating the season with our families. Be safe and behold the wonder of the season.

We look forward to seeing your children again when school reopens on January 4, 2015.

Upcoming Events.

December 23 - January 1 - Winter break

January 4 - School Resumes

Intervention Update

We will resume school on January 4 but take a break in our intervention shuffling. During the first few weeks back to school we will be collect data to inform our next round of interventions. Each student will retake a test in both reading and math in addition to quick screening tests. All of these tests are nationally normed, which gives us good information on measuring our students' growth. I am happy to talk to anyone who is interested in learning more about any of these assessments.

Thing about Laurelton-Pardee - The awesome teachers and kids!

You might be surprised that I have a sister that was in the same grade as me, but we are not twins (We are Irish twins!)

If I could go anywhere, I would go to Japan to visit my dad's side of the family.

My favorite sport is football. I have 2 fantasy teams.

When I am not at Laurelton-Pardee I am p laying with my daughter, Brooklyn, or updating my house.

If you had a magic wand, I would make the week 8 days long so we have an extra weekend day to spend with family and friends.
