Weekly Memo

Dear Levey Families and Friends, We hope everyone had a fantastic long weekend commemorating Martin Luther King, Jr.  Our primary class students did a really snap-up job on their Habitat presentations this morning!  Give them a high-five when you see them!  Re-enrollment time is here!  The admissions office mailed out re-enrollment packets to all families this morning. Be sure to look for yours.  There is a brand-new form called “Intent to Return” — we would be grateful for you to send that back to us as soon as possible. We are attaching it electronically to this email, too.  You can simply hit “reply” and give us your answer.  It asks if your family is returning for the 2019-2020 school year.    A big thank you to those families who braved the cold and began their day with us so early on Thursday as WMTW-Chanel 8 came to do Weather at our school.  It was an amazing couple of hours.   The school got very good press for the event. It was awesome to have so many Levey families present at such an early hour.  KUDOS! Be sure to like and follow us on Instagram and Facebook to follow Levey’s story and see amazing photos of our students. Reminder...Our goal is to be outside as often and as much as possible, so please make sure to pack snow pants, water-resistant mittens, hat, boots and any other warm garments students need for outdoor recess.

Thank you to our Parent Association for an incredible first-Parents Appreciate Teachers Thursday morning breakfast!  It was delicious and so thoughtful! **************************************************************************************************************************************** VACATION CAMP IS ON!!
