PTA invites LCES moms to start the day together with their children. On February 12th, moms may accompany their children to their classrooms starting at 8:15am. Muffins and fun will be provided until 9:15 am.
We want to thank our wonderful School Counselors, Mrs. Horton and Mrs. Williamson, for their tremendous impact they have in helping our LCES Grizzly students achieve school success and plan for their future. This week we celebrate their efforts, hard work and dedication.
The Virginia Department of Education recently held a “Kids Safe Online Poster Contest”. With the help of Stephanie Rowe, the art teacher at Lewis and Clark Elementary School, five entries were submitted in the K-5 category. Mrs. Rowe spoke to several classes about being safe online and had students illustrate what they learned.
Congratulations to Dihana, 3rd grader in Ms. Dockett’s class. Her poster was selected at the state level as a winner in the K-5 category.
Dihana’s poster has been submitted to the national Multi-State Cyber Security Awareness poster contest. If the poster is selected as a national finalist, it will be displayed in the 2021 National “Stay Safe Online” calendar and may also be used in campaigns to raise awareness among children of all ages about internet and computer safety.
Students from Mr. Scott’s Pre-K students watched the ASL class from the high school perform Snow White. The entire production was done with voice and sign. Afterwards, the high school students paired up with my children to practice signing colors, shapes, the alphabet, their names, and various vocabulary terms. It was a great experience for the children!

Welcome Back and Happy New Year LCES Students and Staff!
We hope you all had a restful and enjoyable winter break! We welcome each of our students with open arms and warm hearts as we enter into our third quarter. We have so many accomplishments thus far and we are all ready to set goals for the remainder of the school year! We can’t wait to see you all this week and are ready to show some GRIZZLY PRIDE!
The SCA at Lewis and Clark Elementary school held its annual Warm for Winter Coat Drive. We collected 13 bags of new and gently used Coats, gloves and hats. These items will be donated to those in need in our community. Thank you for making this so successful!
Due to current weather conditions and a second front forecasted to move through Caroline around 7 a.m., CCPS will be on a 2 hour delay. This additional time will permit bus and student drivers to navigate roads in daylight. 12 month employees report on time – Code: 0. Caroline High School will continue SOL testing with a slightly adjusted schedule. CHS will provide additional information through a future BlackBoard email. Thank you for your support of this seasonal safety measure.
The holiday season is fast approaching and Lewis & Clark Elementary School would like to help some of our local families. We are hosting our Annual Snow Buddy Program. In the foyer of the school, we have decorated a tree with Snow Buddies. Stop by and take a Snow Buddy from the tree. On it you will find the gender, age, and grade of a child in need. Each Snow Buddy represents one gift. After you purchase an appropriate gift, please return it (unwrapped) to the School Counseling department by December 16th.
Make sure you attach the Snow Buddy to the gift!
If you would like your child to be allowed to pick a Snow Buddy off the tree, please write a letter to your child’s teacher and include the age and gender of the Snow Buddy your family would like to adopt.
The LCES SCA will be kicking off our first service project with our annual “Warm for Winter Drive”. We will be collecting NEW PAIRS OF SOCKS, HATS and GLOVES and NEW OR GENTLY USED COATS to donate to children and adults in our community. We hope you will join our school in helping others stay warm this winter.
When: December 5th – December 18th
Where: Drop-off items in bins in the front of the school or send in with your child.
What: New pairs of socks, gloves, hats and New or gently used coats (Adults and Children)
Come out TONIGHT and join us for the Winter Wonderland Dance for a night of fun! Dress your best or come casual. Visit the photo booth station for a free photo download and be sure to grab dinner and snacks in the cafeteria.
On Tuesday, November 12th the School Board, Central Office Senior Staff, and State Legislators toured our building to see all the wonderful things our students are doing and where they might see a need. Visitors watched our morning broadcast of announcements in the library.
As they moved towards the Innovation Center, a few 5th-grade students were in the foyer showing the programs they had written for the Wonder Cue robot. Once into the Innovation Center, Damon, a 3rd-grade student in Ms. Dockett’s class showcased his talent for solving 3×3 Rubik’s Cubes to complete a mosaic. We call Damon our Rubik’s Cube champion! He had been discovered solving 21 cubes in less than an hour on a prior visit to the Innovation Center with his class. We are so proud of him!
Lewis and Clark Elementary School is getting ready for Career Day. It will be held on Friday, November 22nd from 9:00- 11:00 am. Students will have the opportunity to hear about a wide range of occupations and careers from people in our community.
We would like to extend an invitation to all of our parents, grandparents, or family members to come participate in Career Day with LCES. If you are interested in sharing your job with our students, please click on the link below and fill out the form by November 4th.

Parents MUST register their student online in order to shop.
Simply select CLICK HERE TO REGISTER. Next select I know my school ID and then enter 4051. Be sure it shows LCES and select continue. Next parents can make up any number for a student ID, it just can’t be one that has been used. NOTE: it states to enter THE ID from an order form, but since we are ONLINE ONLY, there is no order form.
Next, fill in student name, parent email, teacher name, grade and password and click submit.
Finally, review personalization for email, text and social media and select complete registration.
The student will now have a web address where friend and family can shop.

Our fall book fair is scheduled October 18th through October 25th. Once again, Scholastic will be offering both the Online Book Fair and the eWallet payment option to provide easy opportunities for families to shop for books with their students outside of the library walls.
Students will preview the book fair Thursday, Friday and Monday. The sale will not begin (except for Grandparents on Friday) until Tuesday, Oct. 22nd.
Teachers will be able to select books for their Wish Boxes so students and families can purchase something for their classroom libraries. These boxes will be placed along the bookcase near our check out line. Just see what your child’s teacher is wishing for and take one to buy for the classroom.
Our Evening Book Sale will coincide with the Family Night on Thursday, October 22nd. We hope to see you there!
