Weekly Update for the Week of 2.23.20

Hello Dolphin Families,

PARKING LOT SAFETY

Parents, in recent weeks we have noticed that parents are traveling through the parking lot at high rates of speed, parking and congregating in the staff parking lot adjacent to the kindergarten gate after school to wait for students, and walking through the parking lot with their children. These actions are creating major safety concerns and we need your cooperation. All students have been reminded that they are not allowed to cross through the parking lot.  Students should be utilizing the established sidewalks and stairs to safely exit the campus. Please help us keep your students safe by following the school rules and modeling safe choices. Thank you for your support with this request.  

FRIDAY FLAG SALUTE - FEBRUARY 28TH

Parents of our 1st through 5th grade students are invited to join us for this month’s Flag Salute this Friday, February 28th at 8:45 AM on the blacktop.  Our third grade students will be performing this month.

MOTIVATION MONDAYS CONTINUE!

Dolphins, remember that every Monday is Motivation Monday at LCM! Wear shirts with words of kindness or other inspirations, and fill out a Gratitude Gram before school to thank a friend or teacher. Keep the kindness going here at La Costa Meadows!

LOST AND FOUND

Families, all items in the lost and found will be donated to local charities on Friday, February 28th. Please be sure to have your student check for any missing belongings before then, or parents can check during Flag Salute. Remember to label  anything your child brings to school (especially jackets, lunch boxes and water bottles!) with their first and last names. Thank you so much.

STUDENT COUNCIL PEANUT BUTTER AND JELLY SERVICE PROJECT

The LCM Student Council is honored to join forces with San Marcos High School students to support the SMHS Honorable Contributions Project.  The San Marcos Knights will be assembling 350 care packages for the Alpha Bridge Project Homeless Shelter.  

To support their efforts, LCM Student Council will be seeking the following donations:  

  • Peanut Butter
  • Jelly
  • Loaves of bread (with an expiration date AFTER March 1st)
  • Ziploc Sandwich Bags

Students, please bring your items to your classroom between February 24th and February 28th.  The last day to contribute is February 28th as LCM Student Council reps will collect all items and organize them for donation to SMHS. 

Thank you for being a part of this service drive, benefitting local families and individuals in need!

WINTER WONDERLAND - THANK YOU

Thank you to all of the families that were able to join us for the Winter Wonderland dance this past Friday.  The girls and their VIPs had a magical evening. I’d especially like to thank our PTO and all of the parent volunteers who donated their time to provide our students with this memorable experience!

NEXT BOX TOP COLLECTION – FEBRUARY 25TH

Keep saving those Box Tops! Our next collection will be on 2/25. The winning class will get a free round of laser tag at Invasion Laser Tag! 

SAVE THE DATE FOR READ ACROSS AMERICA WEEK – MARCH 2ND – 6TH

Start thinking about Read Across America Week (March 2 – March 6): Monday is “Read My Shirt” Day, Tuesday is Everyone’s a Reading Superhero Day (Superhero Dress Up Day), Wednesday is Reading Takes Us on an Adventure (Safari/Animal Print Dress Up Day), Thursday Dr. Seuss Day (Seussical Dress Up Day), and Friday is Literature Parade!!! 

NEW DATE FOR APEX FUN RUN – MARCH 11TH

Please note, due to a scheduling conflict, our APEX Fun Run date has been changed to Wednesday, March 11th. APEX is one of our largest fundraisers at LCM. We hope this change in date will still allow you to participate by volunteering to mark t-shirts during the run, handing out water to our runners, and cheering on your child. The schedule with the specific times each class is running will be published soon on the PTO website. The Kickoff Pep Rally will be on March 2nd, so be prepared to hear all about this year’s APEX Fun Run and receive your APEX information after school on the 2nd.

SAVE THE DATE: COFFEE CHAT WITH ADMINISTRATION
