Thank you so much to the families who joined us for our Colt Parent Gathering on Thursday. For everything iReady, please visit our iReady resource/information page. Ask your teacher for guidance on how many minutes of iReady reading and/or math your child should be doing at home each week.

Book Fair

Our PTC and parent volunteers are hosting our annual Winter Book Fair in the library the week of 12/10. A portion of all sales come back to LCES to support our own library!

Students can visit the book fair:

  • during their scheduled library time.
  • during morning recess
  • after school until about 3 pm
  • before/after the evening winter performances on 12/11, 12/12 and 12/13

We need lots of help to make it a success. Sign up to volunteer here!

Travel Studies

All Travel Study/Independent Study requests must be turned into Tricia in the front office FIRST. She will ensure that the teacher receives the request in a timely fashion! Thank you!
