Please read on for news and updates for our school this week.

Hello LCM Families,  

Last week our school participated in The Great Kindness Challenge and it was a fantastic week!  We would like to send out a big thank you to our staff members who planned the week’s activities, and another big thank you to our parent volunteers.  Our participation in The Great Kindness Challengewould not be possible without the dedication of our families.  This year we had more volunteers than ever and we appreciate your willingness to help prepare and supervise our kindness activities.    We are thankful for our generous community!

TK and Kindergarten Registration Packets:  

Attention all 2019-2020 TK and Kindergarten Parents.  Registration for TK and Kindergarten will be available this Friday, February 8th.  Packets are available in our front office.

School Attendance:  

Prioritizing school attendance is critical to our students’ academic success.  Positive school attendance has also been linked to the development of healthy life-long habits.  We recognize cold and flu season is upon us, and students who are sick should stay home from school.  In all other cases make school attendance a priority. An absence, tardy, or early pick-up impacts all students in the classroom, and is a disruption to learning.  

Help Wanted!

We are currently in search of substitute noon time supervisors.  Our supervisor team is a critical element of our school’s daily operations and our positive school culture.  If you are interested in becoming or learning more about becoming a substitute noon time supervisor please email Ms. Stephens at julie.stephens@smusd.org and apply online using this link.  

Positive Parenting Workshops through SMUSD:

The Positive Parenting Program is a preventative, early-intervention program that helps parents find positive solutions to common childhood behavior issues using strategies proven to help improve children’s behaviors and reduce caregivers stress and anxiety.  The dates of the classes are Feb. 28th, Mar. 7th & Mar. 14th. Each class is located at San Marcos Elementary School - 1 Tiger Way, San Marcos 92069 and childcare is provided, please see your Dolphin Blast email for registration link.
