Dear Crusader Families,
It has been an amazing first week of school!
The students are getting into their routines, they are catching up with their classmates, and making new friends! Starting next week, the academic content increases as homework will begin and the curriculum will be introduced.
Students in grades 5-8 will receive their laptops next week. In order to receive their laptop, the students and parents must sign the Responsible Use of Technology Agreement for SFDS. If there are any questions regarding the agreement, please contact the classroom teacher.
Please remember to Like our School Facebook page, so you can see all of our fun activities and updates throughout the school year. The School Facebook page can be viewed by clicking on the following link: www.facebook.com/sfdslebanon
The staff and I truly appreciate all of the positive notes, kind words, and support to start the school year! We feel very blessed to be a part of the Crusader community!
As always, thank you for all you do!
