Seven weeks into LREI@home, and our students continue to impress us every day. Here are a few recent highlights to give you a sense of the thoughtful, creative work our students continue to engage in. Well done, LREI children!
Moments from LREI@home: (Worth taking the time to watch!)
Family Teacher Conference Reflection:
I hope you all had meaningful family/teacher conferences. Our teachers reflected on how important the time felt and how engaged and thoughtful families were. In this version of school, prioritizing connection and community is so important, and we appreciate your effort.
With just three weeks until the end of school, our teachers are using their talents and creativity to bring the school year to a close with a feeling of culmination, a sense of pride for all that has been accomplished within each class community, and a bit of excitement about what is to come next. We are trying to maintain as many end-of-year traditions as we can, so, to that end, we will hold our Virtual Field Day on Friday, May 22nd — more information to come. Our End-of-the-Year Lower School Assembly will be held virtually on Friday June 5 at 10:00am, and our Fourth Grade Moving Up Ceremony will be held on Thursday June 4 at 9:00am. Detailed information will be shared with fourth grade parents and students separately.
Thinking Forward to Next Year:
Next week, we begin our annual series of What To Expect Sessions for Kindergarten through Fourth Grade. My goal is to give you an overall sense of the upcoming grade experience and an understanding of child development at each grade level, as well as to answer any questions about how we have designed our program to bring out the potential in each child. I will save the details for curriculum evening next fall, when you meet your child’s new teacher and hear how they bring the specifics to life with their individual style.

Summer Classes: (From Phil)
“We know there are a number of questions about whether we will offer any online classes this summer. We are putting together a list of classes and figuring out the timing and will be in touch soon. If you have specific questions/suggestions, do not hesitate to send me an email."
If you haven’t had a chance to share your child’s friends with us as we consider class placement for the 2020-2021 school year, please do so here as soon as possible.
