Dear Parents/Guardians-On Monday, August 21

posted Aug 21, 2017, 7:27 AM by Karissa Lee

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

On Monday, August 21, a solar eclipse will cross the United States with partial visibility in Arizona with its peak at 10:33 a.m.

 

The National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) states that at no time during the eclipse should a person look directly at the sun. Exposure of the retina to intense visible light causes damage to the eye’s light-sensitive rod and cone cells. The result is a loss of visual function that may be either temporary or permanent, depending on the severity of the damage. The risk to vision is significant because the associated injuries occur without any feeling of pain, and the visual effects do not occur for at least several hours after the damage is done.

 

For the safety of all students, all WESD schools will be on a mandatory rainy day schedule Monday, August 21. Recess and other outdoor activities will be canceled from 9:15 a.m. to noon to ensure the safety of our students.

 

We understand that this is an exciting and educational experience. If students and staff

plan on viewing the eclipse, we are recommending that teachers use the NASA livestream, https://www.nasa.gov/eclipselive.

 

Thank you for your understanding and support.

 

Sincerely,

 

Tricia H. Johnson

BOOSTERTHON- FUNDRAISER!

    Lookout Mountain School

2016-17 Fundraiser!

We’re raising funds for the Lookout Mountain PTO that help purchase class t-shirts, classroom enhancements, field day activities, teacher appreciation events, school equipment, etc. So far during the 2016/17 school year, the PTO has purchased over 200 Chromebooks, new curtains for the stage in the cafeteria, music equipment, new umbrellas for the outside lunch tables, and a new refrigerator and dishwasher for the teacher’s lounge.                       

The Boosterthon Fun Run program is a healthy alternative to traditional product sales that raises much-needed funds for our school. The Boosterthon program also promotes three specific values during the fun-filled experience:  Fitness, Leadership, and Character.

Every student participates in the Fun Run, regardless of pledges raised. Register your student on funrun.com, using our school’s registration code 666-929 or by searching for our school name.  

Think about friends and family who could pledge your student for the Lookout Mountain Fun Run.  And don’t forget to save the Fun Run Date.

—Wednesday, April 12—on your calendar

The run times are as follows: 

K-2 - 8:45-9:45 a.m. | 3rd & 5th - 9:50-10:50 a.m. | 

4th & 6th - 11 a.m.-12 p.m. 

You’re invited to come out and cheer on our students!

 

 

Thanks in advance for supporting

Lookout Mountain School.

Boosterthon Fun Run

posted Apr 6, 2017, 1:08 PM by Karissa Lee

Our school has raised 61% of our goal of $30,000 and we hope to keep the momentum building over the next couple of days and to finish strong together! There are only a few days left of the Boosterthon Fun Run program and we need your help to reach your school’s goal! 

Tips for reminding your students about helping their school:

1.  During the last 2 to 3 minutes of the day, remind students about the nightly challenge!

2.  Fill in your Pledge-O-Meter and celebrate your class total each day! 

3.  Remind students how easy it is to get a pledge and give them ideas of who they can call (aunt, uncle, grandparents, parents, even local businesses).

4.  HAVE FUN! If you’re having fun, you’re students will too!

 Tonight’s Challenge is the Top Class Challenge!  The class with the most new pledges from K - 3 and 4 - 6 tonight will earn a Popsicle party from the PTO. And as an added bonus, if your class wins, you’ll earn a Starbucks gift card for your teacher from the Boosterthon team!
