Dear Parents,

Please join the Lanai staff for our 2015 Back-to-School Night on Tuesday, September 1 (TK-2), and Wednesday, September 2 (3-5), from 5:30 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.  The goal of Back-to-School Night is to connect students’ families with their new classrooms and teachers.  These elementary years are some of the most crucial to your child’s success and we hope you will jump in as partners.  Your involvement, no matter how big or small, really makes a difference.  Looking forward to seeing you at Back-to-School Night!
