Letter From the Principal

Dear LFP Families,

Thank you for being incredibly generous towards our annual PTA Council Food Drive. The food collected supports families in our school and local community. Our school collected 388 bags of flour and 668 other food items. Rooms 15 and 24 collected over 100 teen gifts. Our students and families really demonstrated the Life Skill of caring. A big thank you to the student council for collecting and tallying food items each day and to Deb Dahn-Fogg for organizing the food drive. Thank you to all the volunteers who helped Friday and Saturday to deliver and distribute food to families.

Thank you for supporting our library Book Fair. The money raised will allow for us to purchase more books for our wonderful library, which benefits all students. Ms. Tucker and Mrs. Green did a great job teaching our sixth grade students how to be cashiers. They did a great job! Also, a big thank you to Mrs. Rozema and Mrs. Clapper for an incredible third grade musical showcase allowing each third grader to shine!

Today, your child is bringing home their report card for first trimester. Our teachers worked carefully to provide information and data that accurately reflects your student’s progress during this first trimester based on Common Core State standards. You play a key role in supporting your child’s success. Providing structures for homework, setting goals, giving encouragement, teaching time management, and balance with other activities are all ways for parents to support their student’s success. With consistent and caring support, our student’s confidence and progress with academic challenges will grow. Conferences will be held Jan. 20-23rd with a late night on Thursday the 22nd. Staff will be setting up conferences after winter break and our goal is 100% parent participation. So, please make arrangements to attend.

This Thursday, December 18th is our annual Heritage Festival from 6:30 – 8:30. Please plan to attend this free family event and bring a potluck dish to share. We will have live entertainment, cultural displays, arts and crafts by the Everett Children’s Museum, and a fashion show. The purpose of this event is to celebrate the diversity at LFP. A big thank you to LFP’s Natural Leaders and Katherine Barnard for organizing this fun event.

We are kicking off a new service project at Lake Forest Park Elementary this winter called ‘Sparrow for Grizzly’ in alliance with the youth-based charity organization, Sparrow Clubs USA. The organization’s mission is to set the stage for acts of service and kindness in schools and youth culture by empowering kids to help kids in medical need. Grizzly is a second grade student at Lake Forest Park Elementary and he will be adopted as our “Sparrow”
at a school assembly on December 19th. Grizzly is faced with many medical challenges and our hope is to assist Grizzly and his family at this time. Through the sponsorship of a local business, Prime Electric, Grizzly’s schoolmates will be challenged to do at least 256 hours of community service and document those hours on ‘Sparrow Checks’ to earn funds that Prime Electric has donated toward the project. These funds (Sparrow Cash) will assist Grizzly and his family with basic maintenance and medical expenses that Grizzly’s needs may require. We are excited as a school to reinforce the values of service and kindness with our students through this Sparrow Project.

This Friday is PJ day and an all school holiday sing-a-ling at 9:30 am.

Thank you for sharing your children with us and best wishes to your family this holiday season.

Aimee Miner
