August 2019 Superintendent Letter
Dear USD #416 Wildcat Family,
August has arrived! As everyone knows, with the arrival of August means school is right around the corner! We hope each student and family had an enjoyable and relaxing summer! It does seem just like yesterday that we were beginning the summer break!
Once again, we anxiously await to welcome all of our returning and new Wildcats to our school district! For the 2019-2020 school year, our theme will be “Wildcat Ready!” With your support and encouragement, we know we can get every student ready for their next steps and challenges in life. We take great pride in providing a sound education to each child in our school district. Whether they are in kindergarten or graduating from high school, we want to equip each student with the needed skills to be “Wildcat Ready!”
We will have many activities to help welcome each student and family into our school district during the month of August. Please refer to the school district’s website and your child’s school’s announcements/emails for up-to-date information. On August 1st, we will hold district-wide enrollment in the LHS Commons. As in the past, families can also enroll online. If you complete enrollment online, you do not need to attend the enrollment date on August 1st. Our first days of school are as follows: Wednesday, August 14th – 6th Grade and Freshmen, Thursday, August 15th – Kindergarten through 12th Grade, and Monday, August 19th – Preschool. Another fun event is the Annual Community Pep Rally, sponsored by First National Bank. It will begin at 6 pm on Thursday, August 29th. Plan to attend the free event to cheer on our Wildcats and show our Community Wildcat Pride!
If you have any questions or comments, please contact your child’s school so they can help answer your questions or concerns.
