Principal Message

Dear Lane Families,


It feels like fall has arrived. However, Lane students are still outside before school and during recess.


We are looking forward to seeing everyone at Parent Teacher Conferences. Conferences will be held October 9th and October 18th from 4:30 pm - 8:00 pm. Teachers will be primarily located in the cafeteria and auxiliary gym. Please, enter through the cafeteria doors. Parents will be able to pick up their son's/daughter's Forward Exam results as well.


I am excited to share that our 8th grade WEB leaders planned an afternoon for the 6th grade class. Where Everyone Belongs, WEB, believes in creating an environment where ALL feel connected. The 6th grade class met with WEB leaders, participated in an activity, and had a snack.


Next week some of our 7th and 8th graders will be off to Washington DC to embark on hands on learning. We wish them a safe trip.
