Summer is officially here.  Thanks for a great year.  I have so many wonderful memories of the 2019-20 school year.   It was definitely a year that we will always remember.

One of the changes that happened this spring was the ability to AR test at home.  The ability to test at home will also be available throughout the summer.   As a school, we wanted to utilize this to allow kids to earn awards over the summer for their reading.  It will look very different than the regular school year AR reading program.  It is completely voluntary.  There will not be any goals, parties or awards for being the top reader.  Teachers will not be monitoring it over the summer either.   We wanted to keep it simple and easy.

When summer vacation ends we will check your points.  You can earn a prize for reaching 4 different point levels for the summer.  The prizes will be given out when school starts in the fall.  Here are the levels:

If you earn 1 point over the summer you earn a rainbow lollipop

If you earn 10 points over the summer you earn a multi-colored pen, cool eraser and neon sunglasses

If you earn 15 points over the summer you earn a milk shake

If you earn 20 points you will get to order a book from our first book order this fall

So, if you get 20 points earned, you’ll get one lollipop, a pen, an eraser, some sunglasses, one milk shake and one free book of your choice.

I have visited with the town library and they have an awesome summer reading program.   As you read books for their program you can also earn prizes for our program by testing on them and earning points.  I want to encourage you to participate in their program.  They have a great plan for the summer, and you can earn some cool stuff.

Did you know that one of the many benefits of reading is that it reduces stress?  It can take us to new and amazing places.  I hope you all pick up a good book this summer and find joy in all of your adventures.

Have a super and safe summer.

Hello parents and students,


We have come to the official close of the school year.  What an incredible journey.  Today would have been our end of the year awards assembly.  We wanted to recognize the students who earned some of those achievements.  While many of the programs could not be completed, we did have several that were able to get completed before the closure.  Those accomplishments are listed here.  I also want to recognize all of our students for their hard work this year.  We live in a wonderful place where hard work, respect and kindness are commonplace among our students.  Those attributes are the norm with our students and not the exception.  Thank you parents for raising your students with the values and characteristics that will make them successful in life wherever they go.  Thank you students for coming to school everyday ready to learn.  Thank you 6th graders for being so tremendous to work with these past 7 years.  We will miss you next year.  I am confident that you will be successful in junior high.   You have represented our school well.  Thank you!

Mr Hatch

Packet Pick-up instructions for Thursday, May 14

Our last packet return will be Thursday, May 14  from 2:00 - 6:00 pm.  At this time we will be returning to you any student supplies that were in their desks.  We would like all textbooks, devices, instruments, and library books to be returned as well.

We ask that you follow the bus route into the parking lot.  Please park in front of the school and remain in your car.  A staff member will acknowledge you and bring your student’s supplies to you.  You can also return any completed work at this time to our staff.  Please make sure your students name and grade level are on the returned packets.  Teachers will continue to be available from 8:00 - 2:00, Monday - Thursday if you need to communicate with them.   If you need to arrange an alternate delivery time please contact CES and we will work it out.

The last two weeks of the school year will be an opportunity for teachers to provide feedback to students and do any culminating activities that will celebrate this school year.   In addition, due to the closure of school, we will not be issuing a spring report card.

As always, thank you for your cooperation.  Go to www.lcsd2.org to sign up for grab and go meals and additional online learning resources can be found at www.online.lcsd2.org.  Check it out if you want more learning opportunities for your student.  If you have any questions please contact me.  Thank you for everything and have a great week.
