Happy Virginia School Principals Appreciation Week to our Principal, Mrs. Brown and Assistant Principal, Mr. White. The students and staff of LCES and Caroline County truly appreciate you for all you do to encourage and inspire us each day! You both are AMAZING!
During our Professional Development day, the teachers and staff participated in an activity that pushed them to look beyond the academics and focus on how well they actually know their students. We would like our teachers and staff to build real connections with our students.
Teachers and staff put checks next to students names that they knew by name/face, something personal about them, academically and the students personal story.

The Lewis and Clark Elementary School Chorus and Dance team performed to Here Comes Santa Claus Saturday at the Bowling Green Christmas parade. The team placed 1st out of all marching units for the 2nd year in a row. Mrs. Ballard, Mrs. Bushey, and Mrs. French couldn’t be prouder of them. Great job!
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.
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.

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. Both can be accessed through our Scholastic Book Fair homepage.
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.
