LCO School Superintendent Issues Welcome Back to Parents

Letter to LCO Ojibwe School Parents


Jessica Hutchison

Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe School

Superintendent


Aaniin and welcome to the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe k-12 School. We are pleased to have the honor of educating your child in our community centered school. The 2021-2022 school year beginsMonday, August 23rd, which is a full day of school. We will start the year with a feather pole ceremony behind the school at 10:00 am, which is an important traditional way to commemorate the beginning of the school year. As a reminder, all students are required to complete an updated enrollment packet prior to the start of school, included in this mailing. These forms are essential to guarantee that our contact information for your child is accurate and up to date. These forms are also extremely important to the funding our school receives, in addition to maintaining compliance with Bureau of Indian Education regulations. I would personally like to encourage all parents and guardians to attend the Fall Open House on August 19th,, from 3:00-5:00 in order to meet your child/children’s teacher(s), check out the classroom, enjoy some food, and possibly win a door prize. Middle school and high school students will register for classes, receive schedules, lockers and chromebooks at this time. This would be a great opportunity for new students to visit the school as well. On the first day of school, students should report to the following teachers, which will be posted on classroom doors:


Kindergarten-Mrs. Cody & Mrs. McEatheron 1st Grade-Ms. Soto & Ms. Gordon 2nd Grade--Mrs. St. Germaine & Mrs. Weinart 3rd Grade- Ms. Taylor & Mrs. Mleczko 4th Grade- Ms. Duffy & Mrs. Briggs 5th Grade-Ms. Lamphear & Mr. Henley 6th Grade-Mrs. Burnette & Mr. Brand 7th Grade-Mr. Lattin & Ms. Gokey 8th Grade-Mrs.Moncel & Mrs. Dillon High School Students should report to the gym


I would also like to invite all parents and guardians to our first Parent Advisory Committee Meeting of the year on September 1st from 4:00-5:00 in the k-5 library. PAC meetings are an opportunity to learn more about programming, to ask questions, and to offer input and ideas for improvement. Again, miigwech for choosing the Lac Courte Oreilles Ojibwe School experience for your child. We look forward to the opportunity to work with you and your students throughout the year and the many exciting changes updates for the 2021-2022 school year!
