Lanai Weekly: March 29, 2016

Principal’s Message:

Dear Parents,

Congratulations! Lanai  was one of 162 K-12 schools district-wide who ranked in the top quarter of the arts equity index based on factors that included providing arts instruction, arts resources, arts teachers, arts professional development, and more.  Thank you to all of our parents, volunteers and teachers for supporting arts education at Lanai.  We will proudly display the banner we received from the LAUSD school board.

Have a wonderful Spring Break!   See you Tuesday, March 29th.  

Mr. Hansen

LAPS FOR LANAI IS HERE!!  Guess what time it is?? It’s springtime and that means LAPS 4 LANAI!!! Laps 4 Lanai is a school event that helps promote exercise, health, and teamwork to our entire student body, and serves as a platform for an important fundraiser.  Next week your child will receive their Laps packet with all of the exciting details for this event!  The pledge period is from March 17th through April 8th.

PARENT CENTER - The Lanai Parent Center is for you!  We have Parent Workshops, Book Clubs, Scout Meetings, PTA Meetings and more all in the Parent Center.  But we need you to keep it nice!  Please put down butcher paper on the tables if you are going to use glue, clean up after yourself and make sure all food is thrown away in the outside trash cans to avoid bugs!  We set the example for our students so let’s keep our Parent Center beautiful!  

LOST AND FOUND - It’s filling up again!  Please stop by and check for jackets, water bottles and lunch boxes before you leave for spring break!  It’s faster than another trip to Target for a new one!
