Dear Lammersville Families,
Our Artist in Residence Art Program, sponsored by our Lammersville School Foundation, has started this week. The Artist in Residence Program is designed to bring professional artist to our classrooms to improve art education for teachers and students. This program encourages creativity and self-expression during a span of 8 lessons. This is going extremely well, and the students have enjoyed creating art using a variety of strategies. It is a treat to visit classrooms and see their art displayed and the pride that they have when their artistry is recognized.
Our Annual Auction Dance is quickly approaching. It will take place on Friday, March 13th at 6:00 pm. The location will be St. Bernard’s HFC 12100 Valpico Road. Tickets for our Annual Auction Dinner Dance may be purchased on line through our Lammersville School Foundation website at www.lammersvilleschoolfoundation.org. Your continued support enables our Lammersville School Foundation to provide our students with amazing opportunities such as the Artist in Residence Program, Battle of the Books Competition, Field Day and more!
On March 6th, LUSD 8th graders participated in a Choices and Consequences Assembly. This is a Drug and Alcohol/DUI prevention program which conducts real sentencing hearings at local schools so that students can see what some of the consequences of driving under the influence can be. The cases sentenced at these assemblies are actual DUI cases from San Joaquin County courts who receive community service credit for agreeing to participate. The program included an interactive session between the judge and students, followed by a video depicting local people who have been impacted by drinking and driving. The final component is a Skype connection to Central California Women’s Facility and Folsom Prison that allows inmates to share their stories and the choices they made which resulted in incarceration. The Skype portion of the program was carefully controlled by the judge and was a powerful part of the program.
The hard work of our students will be celebrated at our 2nd Trimester Awards Assembly on Friday, March 27th at 8:45 am for K-3 and 9:30 am for 4-8. We will be recognizing students that earned Principal’s Honor Roll, Superintendent’s Honor Roll, Citizenship, Science Fair and more.
