A Message from the Superintendent...
Welcome back to an exciting new school year. We are hoping that 2014-15 will be our best year ever! I hope your summer was safe and relaxing. The new school year brings many exciting new opportunities as well as challenges.
To echo our city’s theme, I believe in LaSalle! I also believe in LaSalle Elementary Schools. This is based on everyone’s demonstrated dedication to our students. This is a positive reflection on how hard you have all worked to help our students succeed. We continue to make great strides in all academic areas. I am awed by the ability of the staff, board, parents, community, administration, and most of all our students at LaSalle Elementary Schools and impressed by the determination to succeed. You are what makes this such a great place for children to learn.
We are always working to improve and to that end, LaSalle Elementary Schools will continue dismissing at 2:00 every Wednesday in order to provide time for our staff to learn and adapt to the many new changes in education. New technology, Common Core Standards and new assessment practices are just a few of the topics that will be covered during this valuable time.
We were also able to get some building improvement work completed due to a $250,000 energy grant, which was used to replace the original boiler at Lincoln School with a new efficient system. A $50,000 maintenance grant was used to replace old outside doors that had become unusable due to their age and deterioration. Our space needs are becoming critical as our student population continues to grow. We will continue to make an effort to maintain the buildings by applying for any grant funds that become available in the next fiscal year.
We have some new faces joining us again this school year. We were fortunate to find excellent candidates for our open positions.
You are some of the most important people in the lives of our students. They are the only future that we have. Let’s all continue to work together to achieve our standard of excellence. Together there is no limit to what we can achieve.
Please feel free to contact us if you have questions or if we can be of any assistance you.
