Principal Message

Dear Lane Families,


I hope you all are enjoying the transition to Fall.


  • Teaching staff will meet for professional development on September 24th. During that time they work on personal professional goals, meet in grade level and vertical teacher teams during PLCs, and collaborate to discuss specific student needs and concerns. This year they also will continue to focus on the Deeper Learning Competencies.
  • I recently came across this article in the Washington Post. It is our responsibility as parents to keep up to date with current digital trends and engage our children in productive conversations regarding their use of them. If you have any feedback, please feel free to share it with me, and I hope you find it beneficial.


Thank you for all you do to make our school community great.
