Dear Luther School community,
A reminder that Wednesday, Oct. 31 is an Early Release Day for Luther School. On this day, parent dismissal will begin at 11:30 a.m., van dismissal will begin at 11:40 a.m., and bus dismissal will begin at 11:45 a.m.
Students are not permitted to wear costumes or face paint to school on Halloween, however, students may wear orange and black. Luther School will also be running a Twitter Costume Contest. Families who would like to post pictures of their Luther School students on Twitter should include @LutherSchool in their tweet to be included in the contest.
As temperatures begin to drop, students will need to be dressed appropriately for outdoor recess. The Knights of Columbus at St. Dominic’s Church in Swansea are running a Coats for Kids drive. If any families are in need of coats, boots, gloves, scarves, and/or mittens, please email me the gender, size, and item/s needed and I will forward the information to this organization.
The November LSO meeting is scheduled for Monday, November 5 at 6:00 p.m. here at Luther School. At approximately 6:30 p.m., Ms. Williams, Principal of Brown School, and I will be available to answer any questions regarding standards-based grading and the new report card.
