What’s going on in the Lonoke School District

Middle level Future Business Leaders of America (FBLA) will be attending spring conference May 1st at UCA in Conway. Also, 8th graders will be job shadowing on Thursday May 8th for career orientation.

LPS hosted kindergarten registration on Thursday, April 24. Over 70 new kindergartners were registered! If you have a child that will be 5 before August 1st, please come by the primary office to register. You will need a copy of your child’s birth certificate, social security card, shot record, physical, and proof of residence.

C.O.R.E. (Committed to Other Routes of Education) Academy has planted a Community Garden! We actually put the seedlings in the ground Thursday morning the 24th. This has been “in progress” since the beginning of the second semester. The students started seedlings in the classroom and are working closely with 4H.

The Lonoke HIPPY program is now registering 3 and 4 year old children for the 2014-2015 school year. HIPPY is a home based educational program that the parents teach their children to prepare them for school. The curriculum, children’s books and supplies are free to families. We have many ways to qualify families for this program. If you are interested in participating, please call 501-676-0121 and leave your name and phone number.

The Lonoke County Health Department has dedicated this week to the Lonoke School District to ensure that all students are up to date on their immunizations. All Lonoke School District students who are immunized at the health department from April 28-May 2 will be entered into a drawing to win a $50 Walmart gift card. Parents can contact the health department at 676-2268 to find out if their child is due for any immunizations.

Please remember to check at the central office if you are planning to move this summer but you wish to remain in our school district. You may make an appointment with the transportation director if your child rides a bus to school the majority of the time. This will help to elevate future issues and help to answer your questions with residency.
