SUBJECT: The Lovett Letter - September 3, 2023

September 3, 2023
Message from the Principal

Hi all! 

We had a successful week one of school! It was so great to see the kids learning and having a wonderful time at school. I want to send a huge shout out to my pre-k and kinder students; they did such an amazing job this week getting to know the building and already able to find their way to their classrooms. Please see below for a few updates: 

  • Next week, we will start marking students tardy. All students should be in their classroom by 7:40 a.m. Students should be in their classrooms and ready to go. 
  • Permanent car tags will be sent home on Tuesday, September 5th. Please remember to always have the car tag for your car or if you are walking up to pick up. 
  • A reminder that all students that walk need to have the Independent Walker Permission Slip. 
  • Open House will be September 12th, please save the date. This is a time to get valuable information about what your child will be learning during the year as well as get information about classroom procedures. 

I am looking forward to an even better second week. Thank you all for sharing your amazing children with us.

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!


Or scan this QR Code to Zelle directly to Lovett PTO.

Want to know where your donations go? 

Over the last 2 years the generous PTO donations have allowed every classroom to receive a new Clevertouch Smartboard!  

This summer the PTO funds help remodel the Lovett Teachers Lounge with brand new cabinets and a new ice and water machine! See below for before and after pictures!

These things would not be possible without the help of the PTO and all of the Lovett families who support our school and community!

  • Extended Day Registration


  • 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.
