Dear Luther School community,
I would like to congratulate Gianna L., Olivia W., Jacob C., Chloe R., Cameron G., and Brady L. for representing our school and our Luther Pride Team at the November 18 Swansea School Committee. These Luther School students did an excellent job showing the Swansea community what our Luther Pride Team is all about.
As temperatures begin to drop, it is important for students to wear winter coats, gloves, and hats to school in order to be prepared for outdoor recess. Students who are not dressed appropriately for outdoor recess will be provided with an alternate activity inside for their recess.
Report Cards are scheduled to go home with students on Wednesday, December 4. It is important to note that during Trimester I, many of the skills/standards being taught and assessed are new for students and it is not expected that all students will have demonstrated mastery at this point in the school year. As a result, it will be common for students to receive a 2 or 3 for many standards on the Trimester I Report Card.
Parent-teacher conferences will be taking place on Thursday, December 5 and Friday, December 6. Appointment slips have already gone home with students. Due to parent-teacher conferences, December 5 and 6 will be Early Release Days at Luther School. On these days, 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.
The Luther School Winter Music Concerts are scheduled for Wednesday, December 18 in the gymnasium at Luther School. Our concert for families will begin at 10:00 a.m. and seating will begin for this event at 9:30 a.m. Grade 4 students and only grade 5 students who are in band participate in this concert. Our concert for students will begin at 1:40 p.m.
Friday, December 20 will be a school-wide Silly Sweater Day at Luther School. We are encouraging our students and faculty members to show their creativity on this day.
