Can you believe it? Registration is right around the corner! This year it is easier than ever to register AHEAD of time! You should receive a Snapcode very soon. Using that code should allow you to update any and all information for all of your children attending any school. Please click on this link, http://www.kcsdschools.net/register, and register today! This will save you so much time when we see you on Wednesday, July 27 from 9-1 or 3-6. This link also tells you what you need to bring with you on Registration Day, as well as the fees due. If you have questions, call the school at 438-8000. We can't wait to see all our families...
Wow! I cannot believe how quickly the summer is passing! Even though I would love to "pump the breaks" and slow everything down to a turtle's pace, I somehow cannot get that trick to work! As you enjoy time at home, let me encourage you to have your children participate in a few educational opportunities that are availabe to them. IXL (Math) and Classworks (ELA and Math) are both available whenever and wherever you have access to the internet. On our homepage, there is a tab for students and parents. There you will find links to these and other websites. Your children will use the same passwords they used during the school year. Don't have access to the internet? No worries - just have your children read. Whether it is helping read the recipe for a delicious chocolate cake, reading the road signs as you travel near and far, or cuddling up on the couch with a good book or magazine, just read, read, read! Enjoy!
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!
