Dear Levy Families,

Upcoming Events:

  • Invitations went home Friday for our Annual Levy Halloween Dance! It will be held on Friday, October 23rd, from 6-8 p.m. Hope to see you all there!

  • First graders are invited to bring in their boxtops and labels and to visit the school store this week.

Some Updates and Reminders:

  • Austin the Seahorse: Congratulations to Miss Johnson’s Kindergarten class and Mr. Tucker’s 1st Grade class who earned a visit from Austin the Seahorse with all their Levy Loot this week! Keep up the good work!

  • Where in the word is Austin the Seahorse? If your family is heading off on a vacation adventure, why not take Austin with you? We would love to have some snapshots of our smaller (12”) Austin enjoying a little R&R, near or far! Check in with me, or with your child’s teacher, if you would like to have Austin join you on vacation - when you share your photos, we will post them on our Levy website!

  • Fundraiser materials were due back to the school last Friday, October 9th - if you forgot yours, please send it in Tuesday morning!

  • Hooray for Levy Learning Night! We were so excited to welcome more than 100 Levy parents for a terrific evening of learning for all! Here is a sample of some of the feedback we got:

“the staff and teachers in this school are extremely passionate and hardworking”

“I found the presenters were very enthusiastic about teaching us about what they teach!! Also, the materials and activities were made available for parents to see!”

“One thing to take away from tonight is the kids are learning A LOT!”

“Great presentation from everyone and lots of great information”

“[As a K parent] I feel so [much] more completely comfortable after tonight!”

“information was very helpful - glad we came”

“As always, AT Levy exceeds all my expectations - thank you all for always going above and beyond!”

Thanks to everyone who came out to join us!

  • Each month we will be collecting donations of nonperishable food items to support the town’s Weekend Snack Pack program.  Snack packs go home each weekend to feed several of our Levy families. This month we will gratefully accept donations of instant oatmeal (packets) and individual applesauce cups. You may send them to school with your children - a collection box will be in the lobby! Thank you in advance for your generosity!

For information at any time, please be sure to check out our new Levy website at  As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to call or email me at any  time!

Remember that there is no school tomorrow, October 12th, in observance of Columbus Day! Hope you all enjoy the day off - have a great week!
