Hello Lockhurst Families,

Fifth Grade is rounding their final corners with us. I can't believe it but they are ready for Middle School. Fourth Grade did an incredible Living Museum with students dressing and sharing the life stories of Walt Disney, Queen Elizabeth, Babe Ruth, Albert Einstein and others. Cammie Cocea remarked to me that she really learned a lot by doing the research involved. Third Grade will be doing a similar activity next week. Mrs. Siegel's first grade class had the first group of incubated chicks hatch! Anybody want some chickens??? Mrs. Fugleberg and our Student Council made beautiful Mother's Day gifts for sale and also sold roses. Mothers, did your children bring one home? Are you up to your ears in silkworms? They have been a popular activity this past week. They eat mulberry leaves which grow abundantly in our community. Thank you Mrs. Chang for spearheading that. Monday is our Student Orchestra performance for parents at 1:30. This Friday will be the LEAP performance. Parent show will be at 6:30 pm. School Site Council Governance Meeting will be this Thursday at 2:30 in the school library. Please return all school library books to avoid a Lost Book notice. Lost books generate a $20 replacement fee. Have a great week!

Hello Lockhurst Families,

This week is a quiet week. I hope you enjoyed Family Movie Night at The Drive. Wednesday, our school chorus will perform on the lawn at 12:40. We are looking forward to that. Testing continues this week for grades 3-5. Last week's testing went very well due to our strong preparation and support from Mr. Wylie, Testing Coordinator and our marvelous grades 3-5 teachers. Way to go Lockhurst. We held our Charter last week and look forward to informing parents this week of their status.
