Dear Parents,


Thank you for finding ways this week to celebrate Teacher Appreciation week. Thank you to the PTA for organizing and providing daily treats – they are so appreciated!


Hopefully your child shared with the fun had at our Laps for Lacy Kickball Game! The Yellow Team won – which was a great team for me to be on as my last Lacy Kickball game before my retirement!

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 even when other students are asking for their snack.
