Order forms came home today via your child’s folder.  Please look the form over and decide if you would like to order online, or send your payment and order form in with your child on Photo Day.  If ordering online, please do so on or before September 27th, as orders placed after Photo Day will incur a late fee!

FROM THE SCHOOL

A message from the principal: Our first week of school seemed to fly by!  On Tuesday, children were welcomed by our PTG volunteers who helped second graders find their way to the café, where they gathered to meet with new teachers and new friends.  Classrooms were busy with activities that focused on celebrating summer and transitioning back to school.  Mr. Gray and I had “town meetings” with each grade level in order to review our expectations for the year.  Additionally, we served as the first anchors on LHTV Morning News as another way to reach out to all of our youngsters.

I would like to take a moment to remind parents of some important information:

  • Change in dismissal notifications must go directly to the classroom teacher.  A call to the main office or principal is only for emergency situations.

  • For safety reasons, students may not bring more than one or two friends home on their bus on any given day.

Please be sure to sign and review the Student Agenda Book (planner), which contains additional information.
As you can see, Friday Notes will be coming to you electronically, in email format.  Attachments (flyers, letters, etc.) will be accessible as links at the top of the email.  Additionally, please be sure to visit our website where you can view pictures of teaching and learning that is Challenging, Collaborative, and Creative!!  Looking forward to a great year!

Mrs. Massimo

Thank You from the PTG!

The PTG would like to thank Augusta Reese for taking care of ordering school supplies for our children and making sure they are in our child’s classroom on the first day of school. Thank you Augusta!  A big thank you to Jill Einhorn for her role in putting together the new family orientation!  Through the PTG’s ambassador program, Jill helped us to welcome sixteen new families to Lloyd Harbor School!
