At the Week...

Good Evening, Levy Families!

It’s the last week of school!

A great big thank you to all of our parent volunteers who came out to make field day such a special event! We had a blast, and we couldn’t have done it without you!

Here’s what’s happening this week...

Upcoming Events:

  • On Tuesday morning we will hold our annual “Moving On” event! Our first graders will board buses to SFE and WLC where they will go to visit their new schools, meet their new teachers and learn which friends will be in their classes next year! While the first graders are gone, the Kindergarten students will visit their new classrooms and teachers at Levy! This is always such an exciting day for our students - and we love to be able to send them home for the summer looking forward to being with new friends and knowing who their teacher will be in the fall!

  • Report Cards will be distributed to students on Tuesday. Children will also be receiving their SUMMER READING assignments and journals to take home. (Some of these have come home already.) Please be on the lookout for this very important paperwork!!

  • We know that many families plan to dismiss their students early on the last day - please be sure to send a note to the office if this is your intention!  Please be aware, too, that due to the “Moving On” event (above) first graders will be out of the building until about 10:30!

Some Updates and Reminders:

  • Our LOST AND FOUND table is quite full...any unclaimed items will be donated to the school nurse or to local charities on the last day of school. The table is in the school lobby - please be sure to check it this week if you are at school!

  • If you are moving at the end of this school year, please be sure to contact Mrs. Rambacher in the school office so that she can prepare your child’s records and have  you sign a release to the new school system! Thank you!

  • The school building will be open Wednesday-Friday from 6:30 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. If your child forgets something or is absent on the last day, you are welcome to come by and pick up their belongings! Please also feel free to call the office if there are any last-minute details that need attending to! For information whenever you need it throughout the summer, please be sure to check out our Levy website at  

It seems like just yesterday that we were greeting all of you and your children for the start of the year, and I can hardly believe that it is almost time to say goodbye! This has been an incredible year of learning for all our Levy students! When I visit classrooms and see what they can do in reading, writing, and math, I am amazed! We’ve had a lot of fun along the way, too! The Halloween Party, the Thanksgiving Feast, the magician, the storyteller, the “Spring Swing” dance, Reading Week, pajama days, the Memorial Day Celebration and Brunch, and Field Day are just some of the fond memories we take away from the 2015-2016 school year.

I want to take this opportunity, before the craziness of the very last day, to thank all of our ATL families for a spectacular year. To the families of our first graders who are moving on to Steere Farm and Callahan, we wish you all the best, and we hope that you will continue to think of Levy as your home, too. To the families of our Kindergarteners, we look forward to welcoming you back to Levy in the fall!

In the words of John Lubbock:

"Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time."

I wish you all a restful, relaxing, inspiring, and amazing summer vacation.
