It is hard to believe that this is the last week of the school year. The year is swiftly coming to a close. We look forward to sending our 5th graders off to middle school this Thursday and wish all of our students and families a wonderful summer. This year we will say goodbye to several staff members and they will take many memories with them.
Retirements at Live Oak:
We want to wish the very best to Mrs. Cherisse Baatin, Assistant Principal; Nancy Lafollette, K teacher and Margaret Kranak, 3rd grade teacher who will all be retiring from LO this month. There are no words to express our thanks for their hard work and commitment to our students, families and community. All of them have worked tirelessly and loved their time at our school. Enjoy your retirement and think of us fondly. All of you will always remain a Golden Eagle.
Transitions at LO:
For the past eight years, Mrs. Rinker and Mrs. Renk have driven hundreds of miles each week to teach at LO. They have been part of the founding teachers and our school and both teachers will be teaching in districts closer to home next year. We thank them for all their hard work and dedication to our students and families. We wish you well in your new schools and you will always be part of the LO family.
Please welcome Katie Cavanaugh, incoming Assistant Principal for the 2015-16 school year. Katie comes from a family of educators and has experience in both general education and special education, which include roles as a classroom teacher, counseling enhanced classroom teacher, resource specialist and teacher on special assignment (TSA). She looks forward to meeting and building collaborative relationships with all of our LO families, staff and students in August.
Congratulations to LO: We have been recognized by california business community for high achievement and selected for the 2014 Prestigious Honor Roll.
Registration Dates: Important dates to remember August 18 and 20 are our registration and picture days. Details on the times are listed in this newsletter. A summer letter will be sent to all returning families at the end of the month.
Kindergarten AM and PM posting: We try to honor all requests for AM and PM spaces however we never have enough AM spots to accommodate all students. We do our best and will be posting the AM and PM information on Friday, June 19th after 4:00 pm.
Again it has been an honor to serve our families at LO. We have had a wonderful school year and look forward to seeing you all in the fall.
