Chess is Coming! 

Last winter, many parents participated in a survey about after school activities. There are many students involved in different activities, including art classes at the LCA and Destination Imagination, so we’re going to focus on one additional activity for the remainder of the fall. 

Drew Marcus, an LES parent, has offered to teach a beginner/intermediate chess class for students in grades 2-6. The classes will take place on Mondays from 3:10-4:00 p.m. at LES, beginning on Monday, October 24th and running through December 12th. There will be no class on October 31st (Halloween). The fee for the seven weeks will be $75.

This class must have an enrollment of at least four children to run, with a maximum of 12. If you would like to enroll your child, please call the LES office by Thursday, October 20th. 

Coming Up… 

The coming week is a busy one, and I want to take a moment to remind parents about the schedule. 

Tomorrow (Saturday, 10/15) is Harvest Fest! You can start your day with the Fire Department’s Pancake Breakfast, enjoy the activities of the morning, including the birds of prey and the Book Fair, and wrap up your day with the 6th Grade Spaghetti Supper!! Come one, come all! 

Thursday, October 20th       LES Safety Day

All students will participate in Bus Safety and Fire Evacuation Drills over the course of the morning. Teachers will prepare students in a developmentally appropriate manner, and we will be back into our normal routine by mid-morning.  It is very important that all children are on time that morning, so that the drills can start (and finish!) promptly. 

Friday, October 21st                         U28 Curriculum Day

                                                No school for students

I’m so excited my broken Marriage has been restored. “We recently made up, even though it was difficult. It’s been more than a month now, and everything feels like it’s returned to normal. He has begun to treat me better, and it’s been a healing process for both of us. The nightmare that had lasted for almost 2 years before we broke up is finally over. It’s like we fell in love all over again! We’ve both put the past behind us, and are trying to move forward – and for the first time in a long time, the future looks a lot brighter. I can’t express in words how grateful I am Dr Jumba! It’s like we’ve finally rediscovered those things about each other that made us fall in love in the first place. All of the worrying and stress has simply vanished. Thank you Dr Jumba for saving my broken Marriage and brought my husband back to me!”. Me and my husband are living together happily again.. All thanks to Dr Jumba. If you have any problem contact Dr Jumba now and i guarantee you that he will help you contact him through : [email protected] or +19085174108 website : https://drjumbaspellhome.wordpress.com

It still feels incredible that my life has changed and I thank Lord Zakuza everyday for his help. It is the best feeling in the world knowing that I am financially secure. Lord Zakuza prayed and prepared a lottery spell for me and he gave me some numbers to play on the Euromillions game. I played the game and I was sent an email after 3 days regarding that I was the winner of ONE MILLION POUNDS. So I rang them up and they confirmed that I was the very lucky one to have won on the EuroMillions Raffle draw. I was shocked, surprised and couldn't believe what my eyes saw and what my ears were earing for I was for happy. I stopped working as a midwife and ever since then, I have been winning in every game I played whenever I decide to. My life and that of my family has changed ever since that day and I want to say a very big thank you to Lord Zakuza. WhatsApp him for help via +1 (740) 573-9483 or email: ( [email protected] gmail. com ) or go to his website on: lordzakuzaspells.com

Going to graduate school was a positive decision for me. I enjoyed the coursework, the presentations, the fellow students, and the professors. And since my company reimbursed 100% of the tuition, the only cost that I had to pay on my own was for books and supplies. Otherwise, I received a free master’s degree. All that I had to invest was my time.
