I’d like to extend a huge thank you to Richard Layne, Intel Software Engineering Manager, for heading up our Intel PC Pals program this year! Without Richard and his core group, this would not have been possible. Also, thank you to Mrs. Wan and her students for their dedication in emailing PC Pals. Your hard work helped raise money for LeGette. Additionally, I’d like to thank Mrs. Teresi for all her hard work with our band and choir this year. The groups looked great at the Kings, River Cats, and Sac Republic games and they represented LeGette well while performing in the community. Additionally, I’d like to thank Mrs. Ellison and Mr. McClure for their countless hours working with our student council members and running a top-notch program this year! And finally, I’d like to thank Mrs. Rioux, Ms. Hess, and Mrs. Yuill for running our Community Builders groups, with student help from the new Meraki H.S.
Since this is our last newsletter of the year, I’d like to take a moment to personally thank my entire staff for their support and hard work throughout the year. This is truly a great school! The community should be proud of our dedicated educators who spend countless hours year-after-year helping our students learn academics, as well as how to be productive members of society.
I’d also like to extend a big thank you to all our parents. Your support is greatly appreciated! Parent involvement is a key factor in student success. I encourage you to have your student continue reading over the summer, using LexiaCore 5, working on writing (i.e. letter to grandma or another relative), and their math facts (i.e. flash cards). Like great athletes, keeping the mind sharp in off-seasons leads to more productive future years. If you’d like suggestions on academic activities for the summer break, please ask your child’s teacher or visit our website. Simply click on the top banner, “Summer Ideas and Information.”
We say farewell this year to Mrs. Feeney, our 4/5 combo teacher. She’s been a great part of LeGette and will be missed.
And finally, I’d like to congratulate our 6th grade class who will be promoted at the end of the year. You’ve been a great group of young adults! We wish you the very best as you venture on to middle school next year.
As always, if you have any questions or suggestions, please feel free to contact me at school. Thank you!Greg Barge
