Images have been coming in and I have been happy to see some great Cub Character in our students. Parents please keep them coming so we can showcase your children and the great character traits they bring to Lucas Elementary!
What a wonderful turnout for our family night tonight. Alan St. Jean was as entertaining as ever. Thanks to all the families who came out. Also a special thanks to the teachers who worked so hard to make this night a success, our PTO moms and to the Lucas Schools Sustaining Fund for finding this week with Alan St. Jean.
Lucas Elementary is pleased to welcome Alan St. Jean for a week long visit. Throughout the week classes will read and write with Alan. The week will end with a Writing Olympics as the classes present their stories.
These three princesses were seen traveling around the elementary building this afternoon giving students and staff a sneak peek at their upcoming performance of Happily Forever After. I am sure their months of practice will pay off at a terrific performance. I am looking forward to the show on April 23, 2015 at 7:00 in Lucas Heritage Middle School's gymnasium. Hope to see you there!
Tuesday evening, March 17, brought many families to the school cafeteria for family fun and learning during the K-7 Family Math Night. Students were found jumping to coordinates, playing spoons, sorting shapes, using measurement to complete a "treasure hunt", building tunnels, adding money and completing many, many more activities. Lucas Elementary teachers greeted students at a variety of learning stations set up around the perimeter of the cafeteria. Also running learning games were two employees from the Lucas Branch of U.S. Bank. How wonderful to bring in a part of Lucas's community to this great event. Members of the PTO were present to greet families as they came into the even and serve yummy treats to participants. It was great to see such fun and excitement taking place while using math skills!
I want to thank all the teachers, staff, parents and students who made this night a success!
What a wonderful feeling visiting an art exhibit featuring student artists from around the county and seeing so many of Lucas's talented students artwork on display! Artapolooza, at Mid Ohio Educational Service Center runs throughout this week and you are sure to be impressed by Lucas's display, featuring over 50 different student artists from grades Kindergarten to sixth. I hope you can check it out!
Did you know that Monday, March 2 was Theodor Seuss Geisel's birthday? Dr. Seuss was born on 1904 in Springfield, Massachusetts. He published his first children's book, And to Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street, in 1937. Many great books soon followed.
At Lucas Elementary and Middle School We love celebrating Dr. Seuss.
