Dear Longview Families,
I am so excited to welcome you to the 2019 - 2020 school year! I am confident that this will be a wonderful year at Longview, full of growth, exploration, enjoyment and learning! We strongly believe in the Moses Lake School District’s mission, vision, values and core principles, thus, one of our goals is to work collaboratively with parents and families to realize the following core principles:
- Dedication to the care and success of every student as if they were our own, never giving up on anyone.
- Ensuring an emotionally and physically safe learning environment for all.
- Treating everyone with respect and integrity, while embracing differences.
We care deeply for our students, and realize we need to work in partnership with you to fully support the learning, social and emotional needs of our students, and to this end, communication is important. Please don’t hesitate, at any point in the year, to contact your child’s teacher, our counselor, or me, with any questions you may have.
To get the year kicked-off, here is some information you might find helpful.
The first day of school for 1st - 5th graders is Wednesday, August 28th. Kinders have a different schedule, which was included in a special mailing that went out to them last week.
Longview students and their families are invited to attend a Back-to-School Event at our school on August 24th, Saturday, from 12:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. Lunch will be provided, as well as backpacks and school supplies for elementary age students. There will also be fun activities for the whole family including crafts and games.
If you have a middle schooler, there will be similar events at Frontier and Endeavor Middle Schools on Saturday, August 24th from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. These too are a free event and there will be food, fun and supplies.
We look forward to seeing you all very soon at our Longview Back-to-School Night/Ice Cream Social for all our students and families, grades K - 5th, on Monday, August 26th. We will start promptly at 6:00 p.m. in our gym with an introduction of staff and some information to get the year kicked-off. Families will then be able to visit their new classroom(s) and teacher(s). Our gym will reopen at 6:35 p.m. for ice cream and visiting. We hope to see you all there!
Our office is now open for new student registration from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. on August 19th, 20th, 21st and 23rd. Elementary offices will close at 12:00 p.m. on August 22nd to ready class lists for posting at 5:00 p.m.. Lists will be displayed on our front office windows.
Class supply lists can be found at Walmart, on our office window and posted on our school webpage. (We realize the potential hardships supplies for multiple children may pose, thus the items on our supply lists are recommended, not required.)
If you have any questions, give us a call, or swing by the week of August 19th.
I can’t wait to see you all - let’s make this one of the best years yet!
