Principal's Message:

Lloyd Road School Teachers of the Year

Congratulations to Grade 4 and 5 Math and Science teacher Mrs. Lasko for being nominated as our Teacher of the Year, and to our Speech Therapist Mrs. Foley for being named our Education Service Provider of the year! We appreciate all of the hard work and dedication they have shown to our school and students.

Mr. Jerabek


Students of the Month!

Congratulations to our Students of the Month for January! January's theme was PERSEVERANCE. The selected students were as follows:

Ayush Bobra, Lawrence Burns, Christopher Burseth, Briana Camputaro, Melanie Chanderdat, John Clifton, Gianna D'Angelo, Jacob Drake, Joseph Dube, Rhiannon Fuchs, Carlos Guzman, Charles Hicks, Michael Hoarle, Raymond Jiang, Ryan Kee, Gwenevere LaCorte, Kasey Martinez, Joseph Mascolino, Colin McGeehan, Damien Niles, Anu Patel, Colin Petrignani, Ariel Quintanilla, Antonios Sarelakos, Michael Schechter, and Aneyka Valverde.

Each month, we emphasize a new theme and then ask for one nomination from each homeroom teacher. The chosen students are then invited to attend lunch with the Principal and Assistant Principal on an assigned day. The students also receive various awards and have their photos displayed on our Star Students award boards in our front foyer.

Congratulations again to these students! Our February Student of the Month theme is FAIRNESS.

McDonald's Night

With the support of our teachers, administrators, and community, the Student Council was able to raise $788 for the Lloyd Road Relay for Life Team during our McDonald's Night. The event was held on January 11th. It was a fun night for a great cause! The students and parents enjoyed seeing each other, and all of our staff had a great time working and serving orders. Thank you again to all who came out for this event! Please see below for some of the pictures!

Counselor News:

Dear Parents/Guardians,

In our new age of technology, we are experiencing a rise in the popularity of social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Blogger, Snapchat, Tumblr, Vine, etc. It is our responsibility to work together to ensure the safety of our children when using these sites. We are recommending that all parents/guardians monitor your child’s activities, postings, pictures, and comments. Your support is of great value to the success of each of our students.
