School Committee




September 1, 2018

Dear Leverett students and families:

Welcome to the 2018-2019 school year at Leverett Elementary School! Many of you are returning families and we are glad you and your children will be part of the community again this year.  Those of you who are new to LES, we are happy that you’re here and hope that you will come to love LES as much as we do!

All of the staff at LES are dedicated professionals who are committed to providing your children with the best possible educational environment in which to learn, grow and thrive. One of the great aspects of this school is its wonderfully close and supportive community of families. Family involvement in school events and activities is crucial both to student success and that of the school as a whole. Your input is valued and valuable, and your participation in school activities is critical to all of our success. This year there are many options for voluntary participation, including the Parent-Teacher Organization (PTO), which organizes events and raises funds for field trips and other important school programs. The School Committee also welcomes family and community input and participation. We meet on the first Monday of every month, at 6:00 p.m., in the LES library.   Please do not hesitate to contact me or any other member of the School Committee with any questions or ideas you may have. We encourage you to reach out to us regarding policy issues affecting the entire community. You can learn more about what the School Committee does in the Family Handbook, which also contains contact information for School Committee members.

Once again, welcome, and on behalf of the School Committee, I wish you all a joyful 2018-2019 school year!
