Celebrate The Season With Fill the Bucket Week At LE
Our Word of the month for December is CARING. As we draw closer to the holiday season, we would like to have a week at our school dedicated to the giving spirit of Christmas. We would like to celebrate the season of giving and brighten someone’s holiday by filling our bucket with a number of new, unwrapped toys to be donated to our local Marine Corp Sponsored Toys for Tots program.
Our week of giving will begin Monday, December 5th and will run thru Friday, December 9th. Another way to share our spirit of giving and fill our bucket is by donating to our Louisville Community Cupboard. Please bring canned goods or other non-perishable items also throughout the week to make a difference for our community.
Monday, December 5th, students and staff can wear their favorite workout clothes as we “Exercise our Giving Spirit!”
Tuesday, December 6th, students and staff can wear their favorite holiday hat or any favorite hat as we “Tip Our Hats to Our Holiday Bucket Fillers.”
Wednesday, December 7th, students and staff can wear their pajamas to school as we “Dream of a Happy Holiday For All”.
Thursday, December 8th, students and staff will wear their Upstander t-shirts for “Upstander Day” at LES.
Friday, December 9th, students and staff will wear our Leopard colors or Leopard outfits as we celebrate “Making a Difference in Our Community” and conclude our Spirit of Giving Week at LES.
Make-up work is available for children in grades K – 5 who have been absent from school between the dates of November 14th – November 23rd. Parents and guardians may stop by the main office during the day to receive the work.
The materials inside the make-up packets will help prepare students for the assessment he or she will take for his or her particular grade level. We will work with each student to make sure this is a smooth transition. All assessments will need to be completed by December 21st. We appreciate everyone’s patience and understanding as we move forward. Spelling words are available below for students to practice.
