Assistant Principal's Note

Hello All,
It is the time of the year when you hear birds chirping, bees buzzing, and kids playing! For those of us at Andre Lucas Elementary, that means that things are beginning to wind down.
With that said, we are asking for your support. We know that the students are anxiously awaiting the summer break, but there is still much to do and learn until the end of the month. Please continue to have your child arrive to school on time, encourage them to focus on the learning, and cherish the memories that they will make during this last month.
Re-registration began last month. If you have not had the opportunity to come in and register your child(ren), please do so. We are also registering Pre Kindergarten students for SY 14-15.
Keep in mind, that enrollment affects our staffing for next year. During this time it is also important to remember to update your contact information each time you make a logistical change so that we will always know how to reach you.
As I sit here and think about my time at Andre Lucas, I am reminded of ALL the great things about working here.
 The staff: You all are amazing! Through all rough times that we have encountered this year, you stayed diligent and kept what was important at the forefront…our students! I know I tell you all the time, but I mean it, you are the best, and it is a privilege to work with such dedicated people. It is obvious you care about our students and for that I thank you!
 The students: What can I say? I love seeing your smiling faces each and every day. You are the reason that I come to work. From the hugs I get in the hall, to the smiles I see when you conquer a task…It brings me pure joy. Keep working hard and remember…You can be anything you want to be…DREAM BIG!
 The parents: You are such a valuable member of our team. I am so thankful for the talks we share, the work you do volunteering, the support you give your child, and time that you invest in Andre Lucas.
 The 526BSB: The support you provide our students is INCREDIBLE!! We are so thankful for everything that you do. Whether it is giving high-fives at the front door, volunteering in classrooms, supporting Field Day and Special Olympics, running obstacle courses, or just stopping by, please know that we value your support and are very blessed to have you!
I want to thank each and every member of our team…no matter what your role,
I cherish you and cannot wait to see the memories that we make next year!

With Leopard Pride,
April Ennis- Assistant Principal

We value your opinions and looking forward to collaboration among all stakeholders. If you have questions concerning the school improvement process, please contact the CSI Chair, Mr.Turnipseed, or Mrs. Ennis.
