Dear LFP Families,
We are enjoying your students and look forward to learning more about them when we meet with you during conferences this week. We value your partnership. We partner with parents in many ways including: Natural Leaders, PTA, WatchDOGs, parent-teacher conferences, and principal coffees. Thank you for your great involvement!
Natural Leaders: Natural Leaders are warm, caring, and social
parents who serve as multicultural bridges between students, families, communities, and LFP Elementary. They plan school wide events such as the Heritage Festival in December and El Dia Del Ninos in April. They also welcome new families to LFP. If you would like to join our Natural Leaders, please contact our family advocate, Katherine Barnard. Childcare and an interpreter are provided at the Natural Leader meetings.
Assemblies: Our PTA and district were kind enough to again fund the Taproot Theater group who taught us the three Rs of anti-bullying – recognize, refuse, and report. Ask your child what each of these words mean and which hand signals go with each word. Students also learned a great calming breathing exercise called, “cooling soup.”
Parent teacher conferences: We expect to meet with at least one
parent or guardian for every child at LFP this week at conferences.
PTA and our staff are providing childcare and we have interpreters set up for those who need one. We truly feel that this time is valuable to set up your child for success for the year. Please be on time for your conference, as they are scheduled back-to-back. We look forward to learning more about your child(ren). There is early dismissal Wednesday, at
11:45 am, through Friday for conferences. Afternoon
childcare is available through the Shoreline Children’s Center.
MSP results: Learn about last spring’s MSP results and the new report card at the October 30th principal coffee 9:30 – 10:30 in the library.
WatchDOGS (Dads of Great Students): See you tomorrow night for our WatchDOG launch. Bring your children for dinner and to sign up for a day of volunteering at our school. If you are not able to attend the event and would like to participate by spending an entire day volunteering at LFP as a WatchDOG, please contact the office to sign up for a day. We appreciate all of our incredible WatchDOGS!
Emergency drills: State law requires that each school conduct fire, earthquake, and lockout/down drills throughout the school year. LFP Elementary works closely with LFP Police and Northshore Fire Department to be prepared to best protect your children in any type of emergency. We call 911 during our drills to simulate a real emergency response. Please know that if you see the police and/or fire department at LFP, it is most likely during a scheduled drill.
I look forward to seeing you this week at conferences.
