As the weather continues to heat up so does LO. We have been so busy with the start of the school year and this week is no different. Our students have their first Soul Shoppe assembly on Thursday and if you have ever wondered what your children learn about please come out Thursday evening to our first PTA Association meeting and Parent Ed evening. Daniel from Soul Shoppe will speak with parents and share strategies we use at LO for students to solve conflicts. What is the “cleanup”? What do Peacemakers do and how do we keep our students safe at school? There is childcare available too and we look forward to seeing you.
Our first movie night is Friday and LO students look forward to coming back to school in the evening with their sleeping bags and family to enjoy watching a movie in the MPR.
Volunteering at LO is important to us. We love having our parents help in classrooms, the library, drive on field trips and chaperone events. Make sure you are able to help us by signing up on “Be a Mentor”. Many of our parents have been cleared to participate at LO. You should be receiving an email saying you have been cleared. If you are uncertain, please check with our office staff as we are pulling reports of parents who have been cleared. Fifth grade parents that are planning to chaperone and stay at Camp Arroyo we need you to be fingerprinted and cleared before you can go. Let your teachers know if you are planning to attend so we can make sure we get your cleared in plenty of time. Thank you for your time and support of our school and students.
Our students from China visit from October 4th-8th and we have twelve students placed with families. That means we need host families for fourteen more students. If you are able to house 1-2 students please let me know so we have places for all of our visitors. If you have questions please email me at email@example.com.
On Wednesday, September 17th I will be bagging groceries at Whole Foods in San Ramon as part of SRVEF promotion of the Run for Education. Whole Foods gives 5% back of your purchases on Wednesday to the SRVEF. Hope to see you there!
Have a wonderful week, Nadine
