LeTort Open House

Please block out on your calendar the Letort Back to School Night.   It is scheduled for Wednesday, August 29th from 4:00-6:00 pm.   It is an open house format, so you can stop by any time during the two hour block.   Our new art teacher, Miss Anderson, will be in her classroom from 4:30-5:30 on that evening.   Please remember to stop by and say hello.

An open house format allows you some flexibility with your schedule and the option to spend as much time as you need in your child’s classroom. Please be mindful that all parents want to meet the teacher and say hello during their visit. Specific conversations about kids or curriculum would be better served by setting up an appointment with the teacher so they can individualize the conversation with you. Thank you for understanding and we look forward to your visit next week.

LeTort Summer Readers

A note for LeTort Summer Readers:

Please remember to return your Summer Reading Calendar on the first 3 days of school, (Thursday, Aug. 23, Friday, Aug. 24 or Monday, Aug. 27) to receive your Summer Reading Pool Party ticket for your family.  We will need all calendars returned as soon as possible this year.

JRFH Celebration – LeTort

Last Friday, we were able to celebrate LeTort raising over $11,000 for the American Heart Association through our annual Jump Rope for Heart event. This is an incredible achievement for our little school. Our families really did a wonderful job, making 2017-18 our best year yet!

Please enjoy some snaps below, as Mrs. McPherson and I were made into human ice cream sundaes by our highest fundraisers from each class… it was fun… but VERY MESSY!!!
