Perfect Attendance

This week our $10 gift card was awarded to Max St Clair

Mornings @ Lane

Now that the weather is cooler, please remind your son/daughter to dress accordingly. Students are outside until 7:35 am. However, breakfast is served starting at 7:15 am. Students are welcome to come to eat and sit in the cafeteria.

If students arrive before 7:15 am, students are not supervised. When the weather is extremely cold, students will enter school at 7:00 am.

Tardy to School and/or Class

Our goal is to have students attend school and be on time. If tardiness becomes an issue, the assistant principal, Mr. Knaus, will be having conversations with students and contacting parents. If tardy to class is an issue, teachers will be contacting parents and/or a parent meeting may be set up with Mr. Knaus.

Principal Message

Dear Lane Families,

As we move into November, base groups will be themed around Paying it Forward. Lane is hosting a two week food drive starting Nov. 1. The top three base groups will go to Feeding America to help sort food and give back to Milwaukee County.

In addition, Lane Global has organized a school wide penny war. The money collected will be donated to The United Way.

We all know the importance of belonging to a community. This year one building goal has been centered on building a community where everyone belongs. I am proud to share our highlights and I thank the community for giving back. Lane is a great place to be!

Free Dental Care is Coming...

Is your child in need of dental care?

During the school year, FREE dental services will be available to students in the West Allis-West Milwaukee School District.

DentaMed Healthcare will provide dental screenings and restorative dental care to any student, regardless of whether the student is uninsured or insured by another organization. Using a state-of-the-art mobile dental unit, Dentamed Healthcare will provide:

  • Dental Screening (evaluation of teeth)

  • Dental Cleaning (cleaning teeth, providing sealant)

  • Dental Restoration (filling cavities, minor extractions)

To sign your child up for for free dental care:

  • Pick up a Consent Form and Medical History Form in your school Main Office or go online to > Parents > Parent Resources > Forms to download the forms. HERE

  • Complete the Consent Form and Medical History Form and return it to your School Main Office.

  • Once the forms are received, parents will be notified when the mobile dental clinic will be at school.

If you have questions, please contact the District Nursing Department 414-604-4000 ext. 1107 or your school Main office.

Food Drive

Lane will be holding its 2nd annual food drive from November 1st to November 16th. Food should be turned in to base group teachers each morning and student council will tally the totals every other day. The three base groups with the most food collected will have an opportunity to go to feeding America and help sort food on Friday November 30th.

For the next two weeks, we are asking students to bring in specific non-perishable food items that Feeding America is in the biggest need for. These items are:

  • Peanut Butter

  • Canned fruits and vegetables

  • Canned soup

  • Cereal

  • Canned meat, tuna, or cans of ravioli with meat

  • Rice

  • Pasta

  • Beans and legumes such as garbanzo beans, lentils, kidney beans, black beans, soybeans, pinto beans, navy beans

Please refrain from bringing in Ramen noodles, as we are trying to provide healthy options for Feeding America to distribute.

8th Grade Career Fair

Monday November 19, 2018

8:00 - 10:00 am

Lane is excited to announce we will be running our second annual Career Fair on Monday November 19 from 8:00 to 10:00 am. We will again be using an arena-style format in our auxiliary gym with 8th graders visiting tables and gathering information about various careers.

This is where we need your help. Last year, we had many Lane parents volunteer their time and share their careers with our students. We are looking for professionals in any field to participate in the Career Fair. Please contact one of us if you can volunteer or if you know of someone that we should contact. Thank you so much.

Penny Wars

This upcoming week (October 29-November 2), Lane Global is hosting a Penny War during ALL lunches. Our students were learning about Quality Education and chose to donate our funds to The United Way after the War is over.

We are asking for your support in promoting this as a whole school event for a good cause. The winning lunch group will earn extra recess during their base group on any one day that your team decides works best after the winner is announced.

Pennies add to your total and silver coins/dollars subtract from any other group’s total!
