Important Dates at LES!

A note from Mrs. Sampson-

Happy March 1!!!!! I am so excited for this next 6 weeks' push before Spring Break. These are the weeks when your students will make some of their biggest academic gains. As I walk around the school I see students who are excited to be at LES and teachers who are blown away with everything your students have learned and are learning. Keep up the great work families, and I hope to see you all at our book fair on March 9-17. There is a schedule below so you can come shop with your student on their library day.

Social Emotional Learning (SEL) What it is and how we use it at LES!

At LES the first 10 minutes of the day is designated for our students' social and emotional health. We use the curriculum Character Strong. It is the time of the day when we talk about our feelings and that it is ok to have feelings. Below is a link for you to browse to learn more about Social Emotional Learning.
