Dear Parents,

A few things I want to share before Summer begins:

•11 weeks is a long time to take a break from learning.
Leander ISD has created a “Summer Learning” website so that students can continue to do bite size learning throughout their summer break. Please feel free to access these activities, click here, they are organized by grade level.

2019-2020 Meet the Teacher Night will be Tuesday August 13th. We will be notifying you of your child’s teacher in a different way this year. Rather than making phone calls the day of Meet the Teacher Night, we will be sending your child a postcard from their 2019-2020 teacher. These should arrive a few day before Meet the Teacher Night, so be on the lookout. We will also have lists ready to go that evening on "Main Street", and at the entrance to the neighborhoods, should the postcard not arrive and you need to look up your child’s teacher with one of our staff members. No class changes will be made the first week of school. We want to give children and teachers time to adapt to their new learning environment before we make any decisions on the movement of students. I want to assure you that each student’s learning styles and needs have been discussed as we strive for balance and equity in classrooms. Through our process we work very hard to ensure ALL kids have the best learning environment for the 2019-2020 school year.

Have a great and relaxing Summer with your families!

Always the best,

Amanda Lillard
