    A Note From The Principal  


     At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is

     the positive involvement of their parents.” –

    Dear Lewisdale family,

         As we come to the end of 2018, students get very excited about the upcoming winter break and new year. This is wonderful to see, but please continue to reinforce that homework should be completed daily and to demonstrate expected behaviors at school. Teachers have spent time analyzing first quarter assessments and progress to plan for upcoming instruction to meet student needs. You can help at home by reading to or with your child or having them read every day— weekends too! Also, ask them each day to tell you what they learned. Check Parent Schoolmax and follow up with your child about their grades. Find ways to build skills in the real world—have your child help with dinner, cooking or setting the table, to reinforce reading or counting; read signs in the community or compare process in the grocery store; or make up stories about things you see around you. Get creative and have fun—every experience can be a learning experience. Please consider giving the gift of your time, talents and interests by volunteering for the school or the Lewisdale Elementary PTA. Even an hour a month can make a big difference for our school and to your students.

         As always, the staff at Lewisdale Elementary wishes all of our families a safe and happy holiday season!

    Happy Holidays!

    Educationally yours,

    Ms. Haith
