Just a reminder that we will be having a “working” snack time this year. If you would like for your child to have a snack each day please remember to send it with them.
Welcome back to a new school year! We are excited to share the wonderful world of reading with all the students at Nansemond Parkway Elementary School!
Mrs. Harrell and Mrs. Gero
All elementary and middle school courses should be set up with categories. Teachers of elementary and middle school courses can now add assignments. We are still working on a calculation error we are seeing with high school courses and for that reason teachers of high school courses are still not able or should not add any assignments. We hope to have this issue resolved by Tuesday. This issue also affects high school courses taught at the middle schools.
Any teacher that teaches an elementary or middle school course that is missing categories or is not able to create an assignment should report the issue by submitting a TSR.
Oakland Community Church has graciously donated school supplies to our school. We just want to say Thank You!!
Welcome to the start of a new and exciting year as Lakeland celebrates its 25th year of service to the community. As we begin the 2014-15 school year, there will be new ideas and new faces as we strive to engage students in genuine and meaningful learning. School resumes on Tuesday, September 2, 2014. We will be operating on an ODD day schedule. School hours are 8:25 am – 3:00 pm.
Each month, a Scholastic book order will come home. You can order with the form and send in a check (made out to Scholastic) or order online (our class code is HJH48). Each month, the order will be due the next to the last day in the month (the September order will be due September 29). Scholastic usually has great sales on their books, if you are interested, please take advantage of these specials!
Welcome to Kindergarten,
Here is a quick video about what a day in kindergarten is like. I recommend all parents watch this video. It is very informative and may answer some questions you may have.
A slew of information was sent home, if you were able to come to orientation, if not you will receive it in your child’s bookbag this evening. Please fill out all the papers, if they pertain to you, and send back as soon as possible.
I look forward to working with your child, if you should have any questions, please feel free to contact me. I can be reached by phone at 923-4167 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. I do check my email throughout the day, which makes it an easier way to contact me.
Again, looking forward to an awesome year!
I would like to take this opportunity to welcome you all to kindergarten. I am excited to begin this new year. I look forward to working with all of you. Please feel free to contact me with any questions you may have. A Beginning of the Year letter will be coming home this week to explain the classroom management plan, class schedule, among other things.
Forms were sent home in a large ziploc bag. Please be sure to complete and return these forms at your earliest convenience.
Students are to wear their name tags to and from school daily.
Please have your child learn his or her account number (on back of tag) and bus color.
I’m looking forward to a great and exciting school year.

The NEW “Program of Studies” is available
on the main home page for Suffolk Public Schools.
Suffolk Public Schools will be implementing a new grade book, Teacher Access Center, for the 2014-2015 school year. As a result, parents/guardians will no longer use GradeSpeed Parent Connection to monitor student academic progress. A new resource, Home Access Center (HAC), is the parent component of Teacher Access Center and will provide parental access to student academics. Those parents/guardians wishing to transition from GradeSpeed Parent Connection to the new progress monitoring system, Home Access Center, are required to complete and return this form to your child’s school.

Remember everyone picking up students from school must have an ID. If you missed orientation, please fill out the PINK Sign Out Permission form and return it to school as soon as possible – we wouldn’t want you to do it twice!
Keep an eye out for school buses and children moving to and from the buses and bus stops in the morning and the afternoon. We want to keep all of our students safe. Lets make it a great start to a new school year!
