April Update

April is here!

Hello Lanesville Families!

As of today, April 14th, we have 31 days left of school. I cannot believe that! This year really has gone by quickly. The end of the year will be here before we know it. While we know this school year has not looked much like what we are used to, we are going to try and end the year with field day! We will pass along more information as we have it.

Don't forget that ILEARN begins next week!

It is imperative that your student is here every day.

Arts for Learning

5th and 6th graders got a chance to create their own musical instruments using cardboard, beads, duct tape, and other found objects! They connected with Dianna Davis, from Arts for Learning, for a music workshop and design their own instruments! Special thanks to the Community Foundation for making events like this possible.

Louisville Ballet Performance

The Louisville Ballet performed a virtual assembly for the Lanesville Elementary students the week of February 22-26 during their regular music class with Mr. Guernsey. This performance was originally scheduled for in person, but due to COVID-19 guidelines, Louisville Ballet Company created a wonderful performance with insight on how to dance ballet. Many of our students had never seen a ballet performance. We are grateful for Louisville Ballet in working with us so our students could enjoy the performance. This performance was funded by our Indiana Arts Commission grant which is generously supported by the Harrison County Community Foundation.

Duck Duck Derby

Harrison County (a number of groups including the Parks, Prosecutor's Office and the Substance Abuse Coalition) is hosting a Duck Duck Derby contest for all Harrison County students K-6.

Students can purchase a duck for $1 or 6 ducks for $5. All the ducks will be numbered and assigned to a kiddo. The ducks will be dumped into Big Indian Creek and they will race to Hayswood. The "owner" of the duck that wins the race will win a pizza party for his/her entire class from Domino's!

Ice cream or popsicles will be purchased for the class that sells the most ducks!!

All you have to do is send out a picture of the flyer (attached) to your parents, or make copies to send home. You will collect the money and put it in the envelope and on the envelope write the student's name and how many ducks were purchased. It only goes until Monday so it is a fast turn around.

All proceeds go directly to the Substance Abuse Coalition of Harrison
