Letter From the Principal

Dear LFP Families,

As we close the door on an incredible 2013-14 school year, I reflect with pride on all that we have accomplished in partnership with our families and PTA. Our students, staff, volunteers, and parents have worked hard and we thank everyone for supporting our students.

Recently, parents donated a huge selection of books for our classrooms as part of our PTA book drive. We are very grateful for the contributions!

We say good-bye to James and Hannah in our Extended Care who have been so wonderful with our before and after school students. We thank Mrs. Thompson and Mrs. Pettiross for doing an amazing job stepping in and creating a new classroom a third of the way into the school year. We also thank Miss Wardell for being our incredible classroom support relief for all the grades in overload and Mrs. Clapper for her great expertise in job sharing music with Mrs. Rozema. Finally, we congratulate Mrs. Boatman, our outstanding library technician, who is retiring at the end of the school year. A big thank you to these staff members!

A special thank you to Cherie Finazzo, our outgoing PTA co- president, for her two years of service in this role. We also want to thank all of the parents of sixth graders who are also “graduating” from LFP with their child. We value and appreciate all the years of service you have given our school to make it a better place.

As we shift our focus to next year, we are working on staffing and student placement. Parents and guardians will receive classroom placement information in late August for the school year that begins on Wednesday, September 3rd. Our Meet and Greet event will be September 2nd from 3:00 until 4:00 pm. At the Meet and Greet, classrooms will be open so you can meet the teacher, drop off school supplies, meet other families in the class, and see the classroom. Following the Meet and Greet, we invite you to join the PTA on the playground for our free back-to-school BBQ. It is a wonderful time to reconnect with each other and to welcome our newest LFP dolphins.

I look forward to seeing you this week at field days, class parties, 6th grade graduation, and the end-of-the-year assembly on Friday. We welcome Superintendent Rebecca Miner to LFP this Thursday as she joins us for 6th grade graduation.

I wish you all a fantastic summer of outside play, reading, and family time!
