    Grant award inspires kindergartners' priceless art

    It was a beautiful mix – kindergarten teachers at Northwest Elementary School, some 60 of their students, volunteers from the school faculty and the community, a local artist, a grant award to buy supplies like canvas boards and acrylic paint and the enthusiasm of the little artists. The result of that creative work? Paintings of flowers just in time for Mother’s Day.

  • Hearing screenings begin Aug. 30.

    District-wide hearing screenings will take place on August 30, August 31, September 1 and September 5 for all 1st, 3rd and 5th grade students. If you do not want your child's hearing screened, you must notify your child's teacher in writing by Wednesday morning August 30. In an effort to conserve resources, parents will only be notified if their child does not pass the screening.  All students who do not pass or who were absent on the screening day will receive a follow-up screening by the LCPS audiologist.  If you have any questions, please contact Nicole Moore at 252-286-5822 or your child's school.
