Dear Leeds School Families,
Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year! I hope your summer has been filled with fun and relaxation and you made a lot of wonderful memories with family and friends. It’s hard to believe school is starting again, but here we are, ready for another great year! The first day of school is Wednesday, August 24, 2022. School hours are from 8:20 AM to 3:20 PM. Doors will be locked until 8:00 AM.
I would like to extend a warm welcome to new staff members at Leeds School. Maria Dunlop and Nancy Jensen have decided to retire. We appreciate all they have done for Leeds School and wish them a joyous retirement. Becky Haagenson is our new Business Manager and Maddy Severson will be our new second-grade teacher. In addition to these replacements, Renae Fafard will be joining our elementary teaching staff as our new fourth-grade teacher. Amanda Worsham and Sloane Follman round out our new staff as part of our para-professional team.
I wanted to remind our families of some important upcoming dates. Thursday, August 11th from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM is high school registration for all 7 – 12 grade students. Additionally, we will be holding our 2nd annual Leeds School Open House on Tuesday, August 23rd from 5:30 – 7:00 PM for all PreK – 12th grade families. This is a great time to meet our teachers and staff, visit classrooms, unpack supplies, and stop by the school office to pay for school lunches, activity fees, etc. Back to school forms, handbooks, and other important information will be handed out at this time. Open house is a great time to catch up with classmates and friends and enjoy a picnic lunch together. We hope to see all our families out for this fun night.
As we head into another school year, I look forward to a partnership with you to ensure our students can achieve their highest potential. Here at Leeds School, we understand that part of our students’ success relies heavily on the support offered both at school and at home and a strong partnership with you will make a difference in your child’s education. I am certain that our common responsibility for our students’ success will provide rewarding outcomes as the year progresses no matter the challenges.
Thank you for your continued support as we work together as a school community inspiring our students to strive for and achieve their goals.
