Lanai Weekly: August 1, 2016

Principal's Message

Dear Parents,

On behalf of the faculty and staff, I would like to welcome you to Lanai Road Elementary School for the 2016-2017 school year! The first day of school is Tuesday, August 16th, with classes beginning at 8:15 a.m. To those of you whose children are attending Lanai for the first time, I would like to encourage you to become involved in the activities at our school. You will be meeting the greatest students, parents, and staff that a school could ask for, and will have the opportunity to become a part of the Lanai community. Welcome back to another rewarding school year to those of you that are returning to Lanai. We are looking forward to the school year, meeting our new families, and reconnecting with our returning families.

Lanai is a special place because of the people that walk through the halls every day, from our hard working, motivated and delightful students, to our dedicated team of teachers and staff, and our tremendous parents, volunteers and school community that we partner with to support each and every student.

It is our goal to create a safe school that focuses on learning and equips all students to achieve.We can only do this when we partner with our families. Please take time to set clear expectations and goals with your child about academics, behavior, attendance and homework time. Should you have any questions, always feel free to contact the school. The school office opens on Monday, August 1st . During the school year our office is open Monday – Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Please plan ahead for our Back-to- School Nights on Tuesday, August 30th , for grades TK-2 and Wednesday, August 31st , for grades 3-5, from 5:30 p.m.-7:00 p.m.
