Lions Park Paw Prints

Letter from the Principal

Dear Lions Park Families,

It was another week of learning and excitement at Lions Park! All classes are wrapping up units and celebrating student accomplishments in various ways. We are so proud of how hard our students and staff have worked this year. It has been such a pleasure to watch our children learn and grow with the support and encouragement of our school staff and their families.

We look forward to our fifth grade clap out. On May 31st, the fifth grade students will leave their classrooms before 3pm and take one last walk through our hallways while the staff and younger students line the hallways and clap for them. They will exit Door 5 (near the middle of the school on the courtyard/staff parking lot side. Their families are welcome to join them there and congratulate them as they exit Lions Park as students for the last time.

We are looking forward to our annual Field Day on May 25th (the rain date of May 26th). This is a fun day of outdoor activities and games. The second and third grades will be in the morning and the fourth and fifth grades will be in the afternoon. Please plan to send your child with a water bottle and dressed to be outside for over two hours.

As you have already been notified via email from the district office, the registration process for next school year is underway. As we are planning for next year, please notify the front office if you are moving or will not be returning to Lions Park next school year. For students who are returning to Lions Park or heading to Lincoln next year, please register your child by June 21st. By doing this, you will receive the discounted rate for both instructional and transportation fees. For more information about the registration process, you can visit the registration page on the D57 website.
