    Message to Parents:

    I believe parents and caregivers are the main influence on children's lives. My goal is to build a relationship with each child and with the family. As your child develops a sense of trust in me and the school environment, they learn to separate from you with confidence knowing you will return at the end of the school day. At LMS, we respect each person's need to experience the separation process in his or her own way and are here to help the children express their feelings as they build meaningful relationships. I believe that when a child's social and emotional needs are met, he or she can participate fully in the wide range of learning opportunities here at school. Children will become familiar with the routines of a classroom environment and benefit from gaining a sense of what it is like to be part of a larger group.  Working together this year will ensure success and a positive experience. Thank you for all you do!
