SUBJECT: The Lovett Letter - August 27, 2023

August 27, 2023
Message from the Principal

Lets Gooooooooooooooooooo!

As we get ready for the first day, the excitement is in the air. Thursday's Meet the Teacher event was awesome. A huge shout out to our PTO, extended day vendors and Lovett staff for making this event a success. As you get ready for the first day, a few things are important for a smooth start:

1. If you didn't attend Meet the Teacher or forgot to pick up your temporary car tag, please make a sign for day one. On the sign, please put your child's name, grade and teacher.

2. PACK YOUR PATIENCE AT DROP OFF AND DISMISSAL. Everyone will be getting back in the groove with drop off and pick, expect that this week things will take a little longer. To help with drop off make sure kids have everything ready to exit the car when you pull up. Remember parents are not able to walk in so you are either dropping off or walking your child up to the door.

3. When dropping off our picking up, please follow the traffic map and stay in your vehicle.

4. We are all experiencing the super-hot temperatures. Please make sure to send a fillable water bottle with your child. Depending on the temperature, we may be having recess indoors, but if we get any time outside water bottles will be important.

5. Breakfast is available at 7:20 when our doors open. Breakfast from school can be eaten in the classroom, but home breakfast should be eaten at home.

6. Make sure all shot records are turned in by the first day of school

7. Don't forget to complete the Independent Walker permission slip if your child walks home or walks to meet you at a designated location off campus. We must have this on the first day.

8. Make sure to connect with your teacher's Class Dojo as this is how all class news will be sent.

The Love it at Lovett Fall Fundraiser is LIVE!

Lovett PTO is excited to announce our Fall Fundraiser: "Love it at Lovett". We hope to have all families participate and encourage every family to make a meaningful contribution as no gift is too small.


Contributions provide the essential, unrestricted funds that make up the majority of the PTO budget each year. 100% of funds raised will go back to the school and the teachers.


Tell friends and family too as their donations (with your student(s) name attached) will go toward your student(s) for incentives also. Every penny helps, and thank you for supporting Lovett!


It's Lovett Day with Rice University!

  • All Lovett students will get to be a part of the fan tunnel and high-five the Rice players as they enter the field!
  • The Mom's and Dad's Clubs will be heading up some awesome tailgating by Gate 1, so come early!

  • Students that walk home will need to have an Independent Walker Permission Slip on file in the main office. An independent walker is a student that walks to the park to meet parents, walks home or walks to a designated location to meet parents. Walkers will continue to be dismissed from the side gate that leads into the park and will be dismissed at 3:00 with all other students. Students that do not have a permission slip on file, will not be lined up with the walker group for their grade level. A parent will be contacted to confirm how the child is to get home. Please consider if your child is able to handle the responsibility of walking home or to a designated location. The permission slip is linked below. Forms must be on file for the first day of school.
