Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year!

The close of summer always brings mixed feelings-missing warm weather, water activities and relaxed schedules while being excited about a fresh new school year. And of course, who doesn’t love a new bookbag and meeting new friends?

This year at LPES will be one of the best. Building on Wellness Wednesdays which focus on physical activity, we will also expand our offerings to enhance positive mental health and wellness. We know children learn best when both positive mental and physical health activities are in place.

As your child’s school counselor, I will be conducting classroom guidance lessons in classes twice a month that focus on our monthly themes.

September: Community- Our hopes and dreams for the year
October: Unity
November/ December: Empathy
January: Self-Control and Revisiting our Hopes and Dreams
February: Kindness
March: Assertiveness
April: Responsibility
May: Cooperation

One of the most important questions we can ask ourselves as parents and educators is,” What kind of people and learners do we want our children to be?” Our hope is that together we can create an environment at home and at school that fosters excellence in academic achievement and healthy physical and mental health. Join with us in learning and celebrating these monthly themes with our children!
