Dear Lewis Families,

 Happy 2014!  I hope that each of you had a fun-filled, yet relaxing, Winter Break and that 2014 is off to a wonderful start!   Thank you for supporting our Lewis events whether here on campus or out in the community.  A special thanks to our PTSA Board and all of the volunteers that helped make our Breakfast with Santa/Holiday House a big success!!  Hopefully, you have Wednesday, January 14th at 7:15 a.m. on your calendar as our Watch D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) “Donuts for Dads” event!  We have had many Lewis Dads (and even a few Grandfathers) already volunteer to spend a day here at Lewis helping in classrooms and serving as a positive and active role model for students. Thanks to those of you who have already volunteered.  “Donuts for Dad” will be another opportunity to spend a few minutes with your child and to sign up for a volunteer day before the year is over.  Also, best wishes to our Reading Bowl team who will be competing on Saturday, January 17th.  Thank you for representing our school! 

 As you know, the school year is halfway completed.  Our 3rd – 5th graders will take the new Georgia Milestones test starting on April 15th.  I cannot stress to you enough how critical it is that your child is here at school everyday and on time everyday.  Even if students are only a few minutes late, they miss out on important announcements and even instruction!    PLEASE, help instill the character traits of good attendance and punctuality into your child.   Your child’s future employer will appreciate your efforts one day! 

 I look forward to seeing you at our upcoming Family Bingo Night on Friday, January 23rd.  Feel free to call me if I can assist you! 

 Yours in Education,

 Kristi Kee
