"learning and growing together"

General Info

I hope you have a great weekend. Ellen and I had a great time on our vacation to the mountains. I have included some pictures below. Not much planned this weekend. Just trying to get caught up on a few things. If you are planning a trip to the mountains to see the leaves I would suggest waiting another week and it should be in full color. They were starting to turn at the higher elevations this past weekend.

Celebrations, Cares, and Concerns

Help me congratulate our new nurse Margaret Stephens on the birth of her new granddaughter. Margaret got to be with her daughter and Son-In-Law in Cambodia to welcome the new addition. See pictures below. Talia Bay Caralina Slagel-a solid 7lb 4 oz.

Please continue to remember Suzyee Phillips, Matt Taylor's mother, and Heather Reeves' father.

Archery coming to LES!

Mr. Burrell recently attended training to be able to teach archery to our students here at LES through his PE classroom! We will also offer an archery club after school with the possibility for students to compete across the state. There will be more to come on this exciting news in the near future.

Spirit Days

Be sure your grade level has signed up for a month to bring spirit snacks. The signup sheet is outside my office!

Everyone is to have two face to face conferences with parents this year. We are using the afternoon on October 10th (Inservice Day) to schedule conferences. Everyone should plan to stay from 3-6 pm for conferences. You will also have from 12-3 pm for conferencing.
