Principal Greg Wilson

Greetings Lochburn Families

May is here and state testing is about to begin! Being at school and on time is always important and has been a significant focus all year long. But, now more than ever we need your student here, on time and ready to learn as they begin to take their Smarter Balanced Assessment. As your student prepares to take the test please keep these basic reminders in mind. Again, be sure your student is here and on time. Being on time to school will ensure that your student receives all instructions and allows them to settle in and relax before testing begins. Make sure your student has eaten well on their test days. Good nutrition will help with attention and concentration. Encourage a good night’s rest before their test. Make the morning of the test pleasant. Stress will impair your student’s ability to perform their best. Also, please remember to avoid scheduling appointments on their testing days. Students do better when they are on their typical schedule and with their regular teachers. And finally, you are the most important person in your student’s life. When you ask questions, encourage and show interest in what they are doing each day in school, you will have a positive impact on their success! Our students have worked hard and we want each student to experience the success that follows hard work. You can see our testing days under “Important Dates” in this newsletter. Please add these dates to your family calendar!

On another note, May 6th – 10th is Teacher Appreciation Week! I want to thank the hard working and dedicated teachers and staff here at Lochburn! It is our teachers, working alongside our families, that allows our students to grow and be successful.

Also, May 8th is National School Nurse Day! Ms. Bergstrom and Ms. Doyle are critical to help support our students from behind-the-scenes. So, when you stop by or call for whatever your need, please take a minute to thank our teachers and School Nurses for making Lochburn a great place to send our students.

Thank you for sending your student to Lochburn and remember that it is our job to ensure students see themselves as successful in school and are college bound.  

Sincerely, Greg Wilson – Principal
