May 12, 2017

 

Dear Lew Wallace Families,

 

Today we passed out yearbooks for students who ordered them. We made sure that they each put their names in their yearbooks, but it is always a challenge to keep them from getting lost, mixed-up, and stolen once we’ve passed them out. Please encourage your students to keep them at home until the last week of school when we do signatures. If your student still wants a yearbook, they can be purchased from the office for $16. We will sell them until they’re all gone! Students who don’t purchase yearbooks can bring or make an autograph book here at school for collecting messages from their friends during the last week of school.

 

Our Free Grocery Store/Mobile Food Pantry is next Thursday, May 18th. We have been giving food away like crazy! Anyone is welcome who could use some extra food in the house. You do not need to register, or sign-up, or anything. Also, there are many summer sites for free lunches (and breakfasts at some sites). The closest ones to us are:

 

  • Tiguex Park-19th St. & Mountain NW, starting June 5
    Wells Park Community Center-500 Rosemont NW, starting June 12 (Breakfasts, too)
  • Eugene Field Elementary Playground- 700 Edith SE, starting June 5 (Breakfasts, too)
  • South Broadway Park-Garfield & John SE, starting June 5
    Dennis Chavez Community Center- 715 Kathryn SE, starting June 5

 

K3+ Summer School Families:  We are reeling with the frequent changes to our K3+ program by the New Mexico Public Education Department. The dates have changed again (yes – this is the third time), and now we’ll be starting on Thursday, June 15th, and ending on Friday, July 21st. While other schools are losing or cutting their programs, Lew Wallace will actually have additional classroom spaces, especially for incoming kindergarteners. So if you know of any little people planning on attending Lew Wallace in the fall, encourage them to come in and register for K3+ this summer!

 

A letter is coming home today for all students registered in our K3+ program. If you did not receive a letter, but you believe that your child should be in K3+, or you want your child to be in K3+, call or email right away so we can get them in!

 

Very truly,

 

Anne Marie Strangio, Principal

 

 

 

 

 

K3+ Summer School

The Family Dance is in ONE WEEK! Come for free hamburgers, hot dogs, chips, books, bounce house, face painting, music, fun. We need a couple of volunteers who can bring a grill from home for the food. Would you be willing to bring your grill and propane to the school that day? If so, let the office know, or contact Dominica at dominica777@me.com, or Melanie at sunnymel42@yahoo.com.

Talent Show Thanks: A HUGE round of applause to Ms. Taylor for putting on the LWES talent show, for our PTA for all their work putting dinner together and supporting our event, to Ms. Montoya and Ms. Thomas for all their help, and bouquets of roses for our AMAZING performers! What an amazing night it was!!!

 

Last Day of School: The last day of school is Thursday, May 25th, and we will dismiss at 12:00 that day. All students will eat lunch before dismissal. 

 

K3+ Summer School dates: K3+ is now 8:00-2:20, June 15 to July 21. Before and after school care is available through RGEC. If you haven’t signed up yet, you can get a form in the office. LWES teachers will teach the classes. There will be a school bus stop at Lew Wallace, but it will not be supervised. We have room in every grade level! 

 

Summer Programming: There will be no summer programming at Lew Wallace at all this summer. RGEC will be on-campus at Longfellow for before and after school care for K3+ students, and all day for 4th and 5th  grades. For more info, go to rgec.org or call 873-6035.

 

Attendance Through the Last Day: Data from the last two years shows a pattern of attendance dropping over the last two weeks of school.  Let’s “run through the finish line” by committing to show up every day until the bell rings on the last day of school. We’re hoping to end the school year strong!  

 

Volunteering/Chaperoning: Background clearance is good for 2 years, so if you haven’t gotten yours yet, consider doing so for the next school year. The cost is $12, and you can fill out a volunteer application on the APS website at: http://www.aps.edu/community/volunteer-with-aps
