Socktober

posted Sep 26, 2017, 1:06 PM by Danielle Harris

Our new 5th and 6th grade teacher, Mrs. King, has brought a service project to our school this year.It is called SOCKTOBER. She and her students are asking for help with gathering 200 pairs of new (unused) socks to donate to homeless people in our local area. Here is the letter that she has asked me to share with everyone:

Dear Families,

Every night in the United States an estimated 600,000 people live on the streets. This October, SoulPancake and Kid President want 2 million people to prove that even the smallest acts of love, like donating a pair of socks, can make a big difference in the lives of our neighbors who are homeless. For the month of October,  Leeds Central School will be collecting new, unused socks for New Beginnings & RCAM, the local shelters for runaway or homeless youth and their families. Also, if you have a few minutes to spare please watch the video at http://soulpancake.com/socktober/.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact Mrs. King at Lauren.King@msad52.org

Happy New Year!

We are excited to share that there will be TWO $500 scholarships at Leavitt for a Leeds resident graduate! So if you know someone who is graduating in our community, please encourage them to apply in the LAHS guidance office.

AAACCHOOO! The season of sniffles calls for LOTS of TISSUES! Classrooms are always in need of boxes of tissues. PLEASE send in some with your child. Thanks in advance!        

We will keep you posted on events as we get dates and such! Field trips, family nights, 6th grade Boston trip, field day, and more will all be finalized soon and happening in the next couple months!

Friendly Reminder: Our school store (www.schoolstore.com) is a year round online fundraiser! All you have to do is go to our school store website and then click on merchant options!

Principal's Update 12-8-16

posted Dec 8, 2016, 1:12 PM by Danielle Harris

Dear Parents, Friends, and Members of the Community,

Thanks so much to everyone who came to our Grades 4 – 6 winter concert last night to support your children. I hope you enjoyed the concert as much as I did. As always, Mrs. Newcomb put on a fantastic show!

Our PTC Family Ornament Night is tomorrow evening at 6:00 PM. Come hear a story, make an ornament, decorate sugar cookies, and have a family photo taken! It’s sure to be lots of fun!

Did you notice on this month’s lunch menu that our school lunch is FREE FOR EVERYONE on Fridays this month? If your child doesn’t normally eat hot lunch at school, have him or her try it out tomorrow and next Friday! Tomorrow’s lunch is frankfurter on a bun, tater tots, sun dried raisins, baked beans, and milk. I eat school lunch every day because it’s both delicious and nutritious. We have amazing amounts of fresh fruits and vegetables on the salad bar, too. Even if your child pays full price for lunches, you are sure to get your money’s worth! (And for the next 2 Fridays it's FREE!)

Do you know someone who could fill in from time to time as a substitute teacher? Our district is in desperate need and there is a FREE Substitute Teacher Training next Monday, December 12th from  5:30 - 9:00 PM at The Turner Adult Education Learning Center. *** THIS COURSE IS FREE, but you must register.*** Call 225-1010. Check out http://www.msad52.org/home/adult-education to explore what MSAD 52 Adult Education has to offer and to download their full brochure.

We are just about ready to send home sign up sheets for our after school clubs that will start in January. However, we do NOT have ANY volunteers to run Lego Clubs for us! This is the easiest club to run because you just put the Legos out on the tables in the library and let the kids play with them. They are so well behaved because they’re eagerly engaged for the entire hour. If you or someone you know can run this club from 3:10 - 4:05 PM for our students one day a week (you choose which day) for 6 weeks from the beginning of January until February vacation, please let me know ASAP. Otherwise, we won’t be able to offer Lego Club this year and that would be very sad.

Finally, I’ve been asked to remind everyone that now that winter is here, please make sure that every single day your child brings a hat, snow pants, boots, mittens, and a winter coat to school. Unless it is raining or the temperature is below 10 degrees, we go outside for recess every day for 30 minutes. That is a long time for your child to be cold or uncomfortable if he or she is not dressed adequately for the weather.  

Wednesday, December 21 will be a half day, with students being released early at 12:10 PM. Please make sure to send in a note with your child or call Mrs. Parker at 524-5151 if your child needs a bus note to go somewhere other than their usual after school location on that day. Classes will resume on January 3, 2017. I hope that you and your family have a wonderful holiday break!

Sincerely,

Danielle Harris
