In Kindergarten, we will have a mid-afternoon snack every day. Each week, a different family will be responsible for providing healthy snacks for the entire week. Please refer to the snack schedule sent out to note your family's week!

Snacks should be individually packaged, enough for 22 students each day of the week and accompanied by a list of allergens (on the package).

LCCS will no longer be celebrating birthdays with "cupcakes." If you would like to celebrate your child's birthday, a family member is welcome to come in and read a story to our class. Please email me if you would like to set something up!
