Letter from Principal Culbertson

From the Principal

 Fall has arrived and with it a few challenges.  The roofers are still here as I write this as they discovered several issues that needed further work.  The good news is that by the time you read this they should have completed their work and we will no longer have a roof that leaks.  The City of Lacey has been working on installing water pipes along the roads of the south side of our campus and that caused the Lilac entrance to our campus to be closed.  I want to thank the friendly cooperative attitude everyone had as we adjusted to all our traffic flow coming onto campus from the north, and totally re-arranged how we run parent pick up for a week.    Your cooperation and the staff that volunteered to stay outside to help us made all the difference in what could have been a very difficult situation. 

 As we left for the summer I promised everyone an update when we came back regarding our KCTS-9 Pathways to Excellence Award and when that might be airing.  While they continue the editing phase an air date has been set.  They will cover the three schools from across the state (Lacey being the elementary school) in a live broadcast on November 13th at 6:30 pm.    Since the Seahawks will be playing the Patriots at this time I realize many of you will not be tuned in to the live broadcast.  Rest assured you will still be able to access the broadcast later by going to their website.  As those details become available, I’ll share them with you. 

 Reminder to all that I have an open door policy but still recommend you make an appointment to guarantee my availability.  You can call Linda Gallivan at our front office (360-412-4650) should you need to set up an appointment.  I am excited about what I believe will be our best year yet at Lacey….and that’s pretty spectacular!
