Principal's Message

    June 2, 2021


    Dear Parents,

    In the last six days of school, it is beginning to feel a bit more normal with students not having to wear masks outside and we plan for Field Day and other end of year celebrations.  We, however, still have eating and drinking guidelines and mask wearing inside the building. 

    As a staff, we will be celebrating the well-deserved retirement for three staff:  Pam Blomquist, Nancy Proctor and Beverly Burdette.  If you know them, please send them a “Thank you” for what they have done for so many years at Lacy Elementary.

    A huge thank you to Lacy Foundation and the generosity of this community to allow us to be able to hire close to 18 part-time staff to support the following:  STEAM Elective, Literacy Support, Technology Support, and a reduction of teacher/student ratio for intervention/enrichment across all grades!   We will be hiring many part-time Instructional Assistants over the next two months so if you know of anyone who may be interested, tell them to apply.

    Have a wonderful rest of this week.

    Sherri Miller, Principal
