Thank you to Miss Lipke and Mr. Zak for a wonderful evening of art and music. You have a way of bringing out the talent in so many of our students.
Tickets are still available for the Clare McShane benefit that is scheduled from June 2nd from 3PM – 7PM. The benefit is being organized by parents of Kolling, parents of SJE, as well as community members. A flyer is attached here and below are 3 ways you can help: McShane Benefit.pdf
- Purchase Tickets to Attend the Benefit – There is a benefit/donor drive being held at Kolling Elementary on June 2nd from 3:00 – 7:00 PM. There will be food and a silent auction every hour.

If you wish to purchase tickets to the benefit in person, Mrs. Connely will be selling tickets at Kolling before or after school this week on Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

Students are encouraged to bring a water bottle, to dress for outside physical activity, and to wear gym shoes. Students should also wear their grade level signature shirt or their grade level color on Field Day. Colors are listed on this field day attachment that was also sent home with students. There is also a form for parents to fill out if you are interested in volunteering on Field Day. The field day packet that went home is attached here: Field Day 2018.pdf
The most convenient way to communicate dismissal changes is to write a note and send it in with your child. Make sure the note is big enough that it will not get lost between larger papers, includes the names of your children, includes teachers’ names, and includes the date for the changes. If you are not able to write a note, we prefer that you call the office and leave a message on the voicemail or with a secretary. Most importantly, please make sure changes are in by 2pm each day. If it is an Adventure Club change, remember to notify Adventure Club and our school.
This Friday, May 25th is the last day of school. School will resume on Tuesday, August 14th.
When was the last time you visited the district or school website? I just want to remind parents that this is another great source of information about what is going on at Kolling and some great resources that are available to parents and students. Do not forget to click on the NEWS tab to see some really great pictures of things taking place at Kolling.
If you are ever looking for community opportunities, there is a “COMMUNITY ACTIVITIES” link on the district website under the “ABOUT LCSC” tab. There is a ton of extracurricular community activities listed there.
I have been receiving a high volume of emails from parents requesting a specific teacher for next school year. If I did not, or do not respond to your email, please understand that there are simply too many of these emails to respond to and that I cannot honor parent requests. I also ask that you trust the entire Kolling team to do what is best for all students and to assure that everyone is afforded the opportunity to receive a quality education. If you still have questions about “a critical circumstance”, please do not hesitate to contact me. Parents of elementary students will be able to view teacher assignments for the 2018/2019 school year on Skyward on Thursday, August 10th.
