Due to the continuous rainfall today and what is expected tomorrow, we are cancelling Field Day and Kona Ice. It will not be rescheduled due to other events that were previously planned for next week. Thank you.
MEDICATION PICK UP
All medication must be picked up by an adult from the health room no later than Friday, May 30, at 12p.m. Any remaining medication will be disposed of as medication may not be stored over the summer at school. If you have any questions or need special arrangements, please contact me as soon as possible. Have a safe and wonderful summer! Nurse Deal, 438-8000, ext. 5219
Is your child getting the recommended hours of sleep?
How many hours of sleep are enough? According to sleep expert Dr. Timothy Morgenthaler, M.D. of Mayo Sleep Clinic, school-age children should have 10-11 of quality sleep each night. This is uninterrupted sleep time. Depending on your child’s morning wake up schedule, a practical bed time for most elementary age school children is about 8 p.m. As always, a nutritious, a healthy diet, plenty of fluids for hydration, frequent hand washing to help prevent illness and recommended sleep hours will help your child be their very best for a great school day!

LES is looking for a stationary bike donation! Do you have one with clothes hanging on it that you would consider parting with for students to ride and read? How about a Big Wheel? Please call or email Annah Deal, our school nurse. 438-8000, ext 5219 or firstname.lastname@example.org. Thanks in advance!
When your child is absent…
Thank you for an outstanding first nine weeks! It was great seeing so many of you at our awards programs as we celebrated the many successes of our young people. Remember, every child can receive an award for reaching his/her Accelerated Reader (AR) goal. If your child did not receive this award, let's work extra hard this nine weeks to make it happen!
I would also like to remind each of you that the Kershaw County School Board voted at its last meeting to extend the second nine weeks. What this means for you is that January 11th, 12th, 13th, and 14th are all days when students attend school. Friday, January 15th is now a teacher workday, so students will not attend school. In addition, the second nine week ends on January 14th, and the third nine weeks now begins on January 19th. At this time, report cards are scheduled to still come home on January 20th. Please mark all of these very important changes on your calendar.
As always, I thank you for all that you do to help make LES a great place to be!
In advance, I thank you for all that you will do to make this a memorable, successful school year. Welcome back, Counts!
