Wednesday Words - 5/1/24

Dear Parents,


Thank you to all the families who helped with campus clean up. The weeds have been pulled and mulch has been spread – it looks great!


As we are in the last quarter of the school year, please have conversations with your child regarding the importance of being respectful to staff and peers, being engaged in learning, and trying their best when showing their learning. There are still many standards that have to be learned by students and taught by teachers. There is still the need to be safe and self-regulated. Thank you for partnering with us in sharing these expectations with your child(ren).


If you have not yet completed the Family Survey, please take a few minutes to do so. So far, 112 parents have completed the survey! Yeh! We need to hear from MORE of you! We have 17 more days to have your voice heard! Click: Family Survey 2024. We have only 50 parents who have completed this as of last week.

Be sure to click on the Lacy PTA and Foundation information link is HERE!


Grateful for you,


Sherri Miller

Any parent can check their student's LUNCH accounts by logging into This will allow a parent to add money, review any current or recent transactions and see the current balance available. We are observing that some students are buying many snacks (some are buying as many as 5-7 at a time) and either eating them

without eating their lunch OR giving them to other students. We do not want any student giving others food.

Conscious Discipline is not just about addressing the current behavior, rather it is teaching children skills they can use throughout their lives.

· By implementing the powers and skills together, we learn to stay in control of ourselves, and in charge of children in a manner that models the same skills we seek to teach.

· This, combined with the willingness generated by the School Family, empowers children to successfully learn and internalize lifelong skills.
