Landels News

Dear Landels Families,

Can you believe we are already in our final trimester?! Students and staff have been working extremely hard, and we look forward to a strong finish to the school year. Thank you for your continued support. 

Read Across America Week

Next week is Read Across America Week. We’ll have different activities for students during the week. You can do your part by reading with your child every day for just 10-20 minutes! At Casa Dolmans, I read 2-3 stories to my children, Nikos and Jacklyn, every night - it is my favorite part of our bedtime routine and a chance for me to connect with my little ones.

Women’s History Month

March is Women's History Month, a time to celebrate the contributions women have made to society. Landels students will learn about influential women in their classrooms, in the library, and around campus. Landels students are encouraged to write an essay about a topic related to women’s history. Essays are due on March 13th. 

Thank you!



The Board of Trustees will meet on Thursday, Feb. 29 at 6:00 p.m.

Some of the topics include:

·       Early Literacy Update 

·       Parcel Tax Polling Results

·       Environmental Sustainability Plan Update

·       Resolution Recognizing Women's History Month
