LCM Weekly Update for the Week of 11/3/19

This is Mrs. Bedard, principal of La Costa Meadows, with your weekly announcements.



Remember, there is no school for students tomorrow, November 11th in observance of Veterans Day.  On behalf of the entire LCM staff, I'd like to extend our appreciation to the all of the men and women who have served our country.  


I am thrilled to share that LCM won the Hulse Orthodontics Sweet Swap and the $1000 prize for the 5th year in a row!  Thank you families, you rock!



Parents, this is a friendly reminder that students should not be dropped off at school prior to 8:15 AM as there is no supervision.  Thank you for your support with this as we want to ensure the safety of our students.


If you missed the last LCM Spiritwear sale, you're in luck!  Do you need holiday presents for your children, grandparents, etc?  Place your order online at lacostameadowspto.org now through November 14th.  Orders are scheduled to arrive before Winter break.  Check out the Grandparent mugs, Travel mugs, water cups, t-shirts, hats, and sweatshirts!



The next PTO meeting will be held on Tuesday, November 12th, at 3:30pm in the library. Childcare will be provided and all are welcome!



Our Silver Graphics Art Fundraiser is underway! You can order products customized with your child's artwork and raise money for LCM at the same time. Silver Graphics products are perfect holiday gifts! To find your child's artwork, either reference the order form that already came home, or simply visit http://www.silvergraphics.com/access and enter LCMart19 as the access code. All orders must be placed by Wednesday, November 13th, and are scheduled for delivery in early December. Sample products will be displayed in the front office. Thank you for your support!



Attention performers! Auditions for the annual Talent Show will be held on November 18th and 19th. All interested students MUST pick up a packet from Mrs. Smith in Room B-22, before or after school, by Friday, November 15th. Packets must be completed and returned at your student's audition. All fifth graders interested in hosting the Talent Show will have an opportunity to audition after Thanksgiving break. Good luck, Dolphins!



Our November Dine Out will be held at Islands in Carlsbad on Tuesday, November 19th, from 4pm until close! Just present the flyer that will be sent home in your student’s Dolphin folders, or you can access it via Facebook or on our website.  Thank you in advance for your support!


Thanksgiving break is right around the corner.  Mark your calendars as there will be no school for students November 25th through November 29th.


Parents, We want to hear your views on technology and learning!  Be a part of the conversation! We will be participating in the Speak Up Research Initiative. Speak Up is the first survey designed to help parents share their ideas directly with schools and national policymakers and will also provide San Marcos Unified and La Costa Meadows the opportunity to learn about the unique digital learning aspirations of our teachers, students, and parents. As key stakeholders, Speak Up provides parents with a mechanism for expressing their views to the administrators at their child’s school and district about key issues impacting their child’s education.


Since 2003, Speak Up has collected and shared the views of 4.5 million students, teachers, and parents  from all 50 states, as well as internationally. By participating in Speak Up, parents are expressing their views to a wider audience of local, state, and national policymakers as well as the business community—and contributing to the national dialog about science, technology, and preparing students for the 21st-century workforce. The online survey is open to students, educators, and parents; it’s quick and easy to get involved. Please take a moment to complete the survey via the link below by December 27th:



Thank you and have a wonderful week!
