LCE News From Mrs. Blaney

January, 2020

"In the New Year, never forget to thank your past years because they enabled you to reach today! Without the stairs of the past, you cannot arrive at the future!" -Mehmet Murat ildan

We have had a wonderful start to 2020! I am so proud of our students and staff members for focusing on kindness and empathy, and I appreciate our LCE families for their support of our school's efforts and vision. This newsletter will show highlights of January and preview some events of February...

Yoga During PE Class

2020 got off to a good start thanks to our PE teacher and certified yoga instructor, Annie Hokanson. Students at every grade level, from TK - 6th grade, practiced balance, flexibility, and breathing techniques this month.

Board Member Visit

Board Member Kaitzer Puglia visited LCE and saw upper grade classrooms - she also found time to visit the teachers of her daughters from when they attended LCE years ago. We always enjoy and appreciate visits from our school board!

Kindness is Contagious

LCE celebrates kindness each and every week, including The Great Kindness Challenge, which occurred in the last week of January. Some of the projects were featured in the newspaper, and others go by, unnoticed, each and every day!
