									Dear Parents of Our New Lewis and Clark Students,

Welcome to Lewis and Clark School! We are happy to have you and your child
joining our school family. The purpose of this letter is to inform you of upcoming
events for your Kindergarten student and to invite you to our Kindergarten

Making placements for Kindergarten takes careful planning to ensure that your
child’s educational experience is a positive one. It is a decision making process that
takes many factors into consideration. Our goal is to create balanced classrooms.
This balance is established by gender, work habits, independence, speech, special
education, Title 1 math and literacy.

On August 20, we will be holding a Jump Start morning. Each child will work with a
teacher from our school for about 15 minutes and your child will be assessed on
basic skills. At the end of the morning, your child will be assigned to his/her
classroom. If you have any questions, please call me at 268-6727.

We would also like to invite you to Kindergarten Orientation/Pizza Picnic on
August 23, 2012, @ 6:00 in the Lewis and Clark Cafeteria. During this time, we will
introduce you to the Kindergarten curriculum, staff and our building. Your family
will also be able to purchase lunch tickets, spirit shirts, PTA membership, and
complete a HANDS application. The first day of school is August 29.


Vickie Donisthorpe, Principal
Lewis and Clark Elementary
