We had our Pre-K and Full-day Kindergarten graduations and promotions last week as we said goodbye to a number of children and families. It has been our pleasure to watch these children grow and succeed over the years. Thank you to Cloe, Ms Carmen's daughter, whose company, Chalk It Up!, (firstname.lastname@example.org) made all the chalk boards for each of the ceremonies.
We are coming to the end of the academic year and looking forward to the Summer session. The last day for LCPS is Tuesday, June 16th so our Summer session begins Wednesday June 17th. Our Summer Kick-off Party will be on Friday, June 19th. Sign-up sheets for desserts and sides for the party are out. We will have a barbecue, musical entertainment, face painting, games and more. So plan to start your Summer off with us.
Our LOA Summer Camp "Fun in the "Son" for rising 1st Graders through 5th Grade kicks off this week starting on Wednesday, June 17th. The schedule for the summer camp can be found on our website at the following link: LOA "Fun in the Son" Summer Camp, 2015
Summer Safety is our theme and the children will be participating in a lot of in-house activities this week. The Summer Camp teachers are requesting toilet paper rolls and paper towel rolls for an art activity.
As a reminder to all parents, we are now entering into our Summer season (the 1st day of Summer is June 21st!) so please remember to apply sunscreen to your child before coming to school. Don't forget to label all personal items brought to school: bathing suits, towels, hats, water shoes, etc. We apply sunscreen for the afternoon playground time. Note, that we monitor the air quality and we will not let the children out on Code Red days and we limit the time out on Code Orange days. Let us know if you have any concerns.
