Dear La Center Elementary Families,

I look forward to sharing with you the incredible journey of elementary education.  As a staff, we pledge to provide the best possible experience to all children.  Our team will continue to strive for the quality and connection that has made LCES an integral part of the community.

As a principal, I work to ensure a safe, caring environment and to provide students with a focused classroom setting — leading to academic growth and achievement.  I believe that every child is capable and significant, that each individual can contribute, and has the right to be understood.  As a team, our staff will do our best to meet the needs of every child, every day.

We invite you to join us as partners in the education of your child.  A vital commitment between school and home allows our children to reach their full potential. You can take an active role in student learning by working with your child’s teacher, supporting school activities, volunteering in your child’s classroom, and joining the La Center Elementary Parent Teacher Association (PTO).  We welcome your involvement, assistance and insight.

If you have questions or concerns, please contact me at 360-263-2134.  I look forward to working with you this year.  Again, welcome back to school!

Mike Nolan, PK-2 Principal

La Center Elementary School

As you may know, we have been working to improve our morning (before school) supervision and students getting to their correct locations in a timely manner.  We have tried some changes and today have our plan moving forward for the school year.  Our plan is as follows:
-As in the past, morning supervision starts at 8:00 each day in the bus area, horseshoe drop off/pick up area, the playground, and the cafeteria.
-The field side of campus will not open up until 8:10 each day, when students will be invited into classrooms.
-Students coming on campus will be allowed to either go to the playground or the cafeteria for breakfast.  We will no longer gather outside the office.
-Tasha will now be stationed and supervising between the elementary gym and the music portable from 8:00 until unlocking doors for main building entry for students at 8:10.
-There will be signage in the old bell area near the football field showing the cafeteria and playground options.
-Students may go to the office when needed by walking the cafeteria route from the bus area.
-We will continue our extra staff supervision of moving areas through the second week of school.
-We will be ready with inclement weather options of cover with our playshed, the covered area outside Mrs. Crandall’s room, and the glass side of the cafeteria if needed.
