Principal's Note

Lamar Families,

We are nearing the end of our third nine weeks. Thank you for your continued support and for allowing us the opportunity to work with your child!

Several things to be aware of as we move into March and approach Spring:

1. Summer School is once again going to be at Lamar this summer. There will be a free breakfast/lunch, ELA/ math instruction and daily physical activity. We will also have field trips and guest speakers. Please use the link below to find out more information and to register your child.

2. Parent/ Teacher Conferences will be on March 15 from 1 to 3 PM. These will be by appointment only. Email your child's teacher if you are interested in meeting. Remember you can check your child's grades using the button below (Parent Portal).

3. TCAP State Testing will begin on April 11 and go through April 22 for all students in grades 3-8. If possible, please plan appointments and absences outside of this time frame. Check out the buttons below for more upcoming school and district-wide dates.

4. Attendance Reminder: Please send in all doctor’s excuses and parent notes ASAP. These can be brought in by the student upon return, emailed, ( or faxed 423-753-1134. **Remember you have 5 parent notes per year.**

5. Arts Night: Save the date for Arts Night on March 22 at 6 PM. More info TBA.

As always, please feel free to contact the office at 753-1130 if you have questions.
