Good Evening, Levy Families!

Here’s what’s happening this week...

Upcoming Events:

  • Congratulations to Summer Lacouture and Natalie Tyler who each won the chance to be Principal for a Day in April!

  • Tomorrow Evening, 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!

  • Throughout the month of March, we will continue collecting food items for community families in need. This month we are gratefully accepting donations of canned, kid-friendly meals, such as Spaghetti-O’s and Beef-a-Roni. Thank you!

  • First Grade 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 gently used clothing and new underwear to our school nurse. She now has plenty of clothing to loan to children in the event of accidents.

  • We are continuing to battle strep throat, stomach bugs, and the flu at Levy. We are working hard to make sure that children wash their hands many times during the day and use hand sanitizer whenever hand washing isn’t practical. We are also taking extra steps to disinfect and de-germ the building. You can help us keep the school healthy by reminding your children to cough and sneeze into their elbows (not hands!), to use tissues when their noses need it (and dispose of them quickly) and to keep their hands away from their faces and the faces of others. Thank you!

  • 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 contact him/her this week for a new one, 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!
