A Sneak Peek at the Week…

Good Evening, Levy Families!

Here’s what’s happening this week...

Upcoming Events:

  • Tomorrow is Leap Day! We will hold our drawing for Principal for a Day in the afternoon! The Kindergarten and first grade children have been working hard to earn LOTS of Levy Loots - best of luck to all!

  • Wednesday, March 2nd, is Dr. Seuss’s Birthday! We will be enjoying some Dr. Seuss and Cat-in-the-Hat themed activities in school. Children are invited to wear black, red, and white clothing in celebration!

  • Next Monday, March 7th we will have a School Improvement Team Meeting at 5pm and a PTF meeting at 6pm. The SIT will be working on a parent survey for the end of the year. PTF will be looking at finalizing details for the annual spring dance, and officer positions for the next school year! Please join us if you can - new members are ALWAYS welcome!

  • Starting tomorrow, we will resume collecting food items for community families in need. During the month of March we will gratefully accept donations of canned kid-friendly meals, such as Spaghetti-O’s and Beef-a-Roni. Thank you!

  • Kindergarten students are invited to bring labels and visit the school store this week!

Some Updates and Reminders:

  • Just a reminder that our school day starts at 8:45! Children who arrive even a few minutes late miss out on opportunities to socialize with their friends and participate in the morning routines that organize their day and get them ready to learn. Children may be dropped off any time between 8:30 and 8:45 - please be prompt!

  • Thank you to everyone who has donated small toys and trinkets to give as prizes to children who bring boxtops and labels to school. Mrs. Allard is so grateful for your generosity! If you are spring cleaning, and you have any small toys or stuffed animals that you would like to donate, they will still be gladly accepted - please feel free to send them to school with your child or to drop them at the office at your convenience!

  • Parent-Teacher Conferences are coming soon! They will be held on the evening of March 17th from 5-8 pm, by appointment only. If you have not yet received a scheduling notice from your child’s teacher, please watch for it this week and be sure to return it as soon as possible!

For information whenever you need it, please be sure to check out our Levy website at  If you have questions or concerns, please feel free to call or email me at any  time!

Have a great week!
