This week we had a great start to the school year. Wednesday saw our first – fifth grade students return to school, along with several new students. It was a day of learning new routines and making new friends.
Friday was the first day for our kindergarten students. I had the opportunity to visit each of our kindergarten classrooms Friday morning and it was great to see the excitement on the faces of the children, and also a hint of sadness on the faces of their parents. They do grow up very quickly.
A reminder to our Kindergarten families that the Lewis PTA is sponsoring a Kindergarten Social, on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2012 at 6:00 pm on the playground. This is an opportunity for families to meet one another and to learn about the work of our PTA. Ice cream will be served.
As we start the school year I would like to acknowledge the work and service of our 5th grade Safety Patrol students, and of our 3rd and 4th grade lunch helpers. I am proud of the service that these students provide to their fellow classmates and believe these programs not only provide a much needed helping hand, but also provide an opportunity for students to gain responsibility and contribute to the larger school community. Please join me in thanking these students for their service.
