Dear Link Families,
Welcome to the 2022-23 school year at Link Elementary School! I hope each of you had a safe and fun summer with family and friends. We are excited about the return of our students and we’ve worked hard to make sure this upcoming year is exciting and rewarding. Our theme this year will be “The Energy Bus!” We will use positive energy to move our Leopards forward. In 2021-22 our students showed academic growth in all grade levels and we will maintain and exceed that growth while helping our students continue to grow into positive world changers.
We have a lot of work to do this year to ensure our scholars meet their academic goals as we focus on building the whole child. Social Emotional Learning (SEL) will continue to be a big focus of our work and I hope that throughout the year, you as the parents will partner with us for the success of our students.
Our first day of school is Tuesday, August 16, 2022. Our school hours have remained the same and doors will open daily beginning at 7:35 am. Instruction begins at 8:05 am and ends at 3:25 pm. Please ensure that your child does not arrive before 7:35 am as there will be no supervision for them before that time. If you need early morning care please contact Koala Kare, which has a before and after school program here on our campus. Breakfast will continue to be served in the classroom from 7:35 am to 8:05 am and will continue to be free for all students this school year. During breakfast, teachers will also engage our students in their social-emotional lessons for the day which will, in turn, give them a strong start to a great day of learning.
As a reminder, all bus riders will be dropped off and picked up at the side of the building near the blacktop play area of the building with ample staff present to supervise their entry into the building. Walkers and car riders will enter and exit through the car rider line in front of the cafeteria. We have a strong car rider system in place that will monitor the safety of each of our students. Your particular attention and adherence to the procedures are appreciated.
Please plan to attend our annual Leopards on the Lawn on Friday, August 12th from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm. Students will receive their class/teacher assignments and parents will be able to pick up pre-ordered supplies, receive dismissal tags, and meet their child’s teacher. Additionally, pertinent information regarding the school year will also be available.
Our student dress code will remain the same as last school year. Students will wear specific colored polos by grade level with khaki or blue jean bottoms (no rips, tears, or holes permitted). Please see the standardized dress code in the student handbook or online for more detailed information. Additionally, students may carry a backpack of choice without wheels during the school day.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the campus at 281-891-8390.
