Lassen View Families,
Lassen View Families,
February is here and it is full of many special events as well as academic challenges as we close out our 2nd trimester of the 2017-18 school year. We hope you can join in for many of the celebrations and participate in supporting your student as we continue to help them grow socially, emotionally as well as academically.
Our 4th and 5th graders begin their basketball games. Look for the schedule on our new website calendar and come out on a Tuesday or Thursday to cheer on the Panthers.
Our 2nd session for STEM Club with our 2nd/3rd graders begins with Mrs. Thuemler as their advisor. STEM Club (Science-Technology-Engineering-Math) offers students the opportunity to explore their science and mathematical side through hands-on experiments and activities.
PTO is sponsoring our annual Daughter Dance on Friday, February 9th from 6:00-7:30 pm Girls can invite a special adult and dress for the “Alice In Wonderland” theme in their favorite tea party dresses. The dance is free to attend. Snack bar items and photography are available to purchase.
At the end of the month students will perform in our Patriotic Program honoring local veterans. On Wednesday, February 28th from 8:30-9:30 a.m. join us in the Neighborhood Church auditorium. The Veterans Historical Society will then share their military displays with students giving them insight to what it means to serve our country.
Flu and cold season is here and we are doing our best to help the Lassen View community stay healthy. Washing hands is the number one preventative measure we can all encourage and ask for your support by keeping students home if they have a fever or have thrown up in the last 24 hours. Help your student perform their best by getting a full 8-10 hours sleep each night and eating healthy meals each day.
February is also a month of holidays. In addition to Valentine’s Day on February 14th, we have two Monday holidays. On Monday, February 12th, we celebrate Abraham Lincoln’s birthday and on Monday, February 19th we honor George Washington.
Enjoy this fast month with family time,
Mrs. Caryn Emerson
