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 guidance department by December 15th.
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.
We received a $500.00 Science and Math Grant through the Exxon Mobil Educational Alliance Program. We appreciate the support from Ladysmith Exxon and look forward to using these funds to support our math and science programs.
A big THANK YOU to the Rotary Club for coming to LCES and giving each third grade student their very own dictionary! Lewis and Clark students and faculty cannot thank you enough for your continued support!
Veterans Day is a day to honor those who served who have the fortune of coming back home. We should be honoring America’s veterans every day of the year. Today, we recognized the sacrifices of our nation’s heroes.
The willingness of America’s veterans to sacrifice for our country has earned them our lasting gratitude. -Jeff Miller
