As we look forward to another successful school year, we want to thank you in advance for allowing us the opportunity to educate your child(ren). The Lawnside community has demonstrated its continued support of the school district, and for that we are extremely thankful. This year’s theme of “Together We Rise!” reminds us that given the current divisive rhetoric in our country, we as a community have a moral obligation to our children.
Improving academic achievement is an essential goal of our school district. Over the past several years, we have continued to update and revise our curriculum to reflect the rigorous changes in national/state standards. This school year, we have purchased new Science and Social Studies textbooks. Continued focus has been on maintaining our technological advantage through the purchase of additional iPads for the lower grades and an update to the newest MAC operating system.
We ask that you partner with us in achieving the set of district goals below that were developed by the Lawnside Board of Education for the 2016-2017 school year:
Goal #1: Continue to focus on enhancing curriculum and instruction in all core subject areas to improve student achievement.
Goal #2: Continue to positively impact school culture.
Goal #3: Continue to communicate the districts culture, strengths and successes to all stakeholders in the district.
Parents and students are invited to attend the Annual Back To School Bonanza on Saturday, August 27, 2016 from 12 noon until 3:00 p.m. The school year officially begins for students on Tuesday, September 6, 2016. Students may report to school at 8:00 a.m. and will be dismissed at 3:10 p.m. daily. Breakfast and Lunch will be free for all students during the 2016-2017 school year pending the return of the enclosed Household Information Survey. Open House will be from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. on Thursday, September 15, 2016.
I look forward to seeing everyone at some point throughout the school year and again thank you in advance for your continued support.
