A Few Goodbyes and a GREAT BIG Welcome!


With the conclusion of the 2015-2016 school year come a few changes to the staff of Letort Elementary.  As many of you know, we are saying a fond farewell to Mr. Fritz (music), Miss Sangrey (learning support), Mr. Zimmerman (gifted), Miss Gerhart (applied engineering) and Mr. Binkley (PE).  All of these individuals are staying with the district but in different locations.  I know Letort will simply not be the same without their smiling faces each day.

We are also welcoming some new faces to Letort.  Mr. Alan Dutton will be teaching music, Miss Kyra Garling will be teaching learning support, Mr. Steve Sellers for gifted, and Mr. Steve McCabe for physical education.  I will be working on a replacement for Miss Gerhart ~ more on that later!  I know that students, parents, and staff will welcome our new staff members with open arms.

Welcome to the LETORT Team!

Student Medication Pick Up

Blast from the Past

There was an exciting event that occurred today at Letort Elementary School.  You could not imagine the amount of famous historical figures the stop by to visit.  You could have met anyone from Richard Nixon to Steve Jobs and many more!

All kidding aside, the students worked tremendously hard to prepare their presentation of an important historical figure.  A special thank you to Mrs. Suydam and Mrs. Diehm for organizing this wonderful event.  We know how much time and energy this took ~ THANK YOU!
