Principal’s Message

Dear Parents,

We have four weeks left of school and there is much work to be done.  For example, just this week our 4th and 5th graders are working on integrated units, and all 5th grade classes are finishing their play writing unit.  In addition, our Lexia Lions Club students have their last session after-school on Tuesday, then will celebrate with a special lunch on Wednesday!  Please check the calendar for upcoming activities such as: Team Lanai meeting, English Learner Advisory Committee and School Site Council.
