On December 10th, all grandparents are cordially invited to join their grandchild for the viewing of Lohr’s Christmas Musical, A Dicken’s of a Christmas, and a cookie reception in the classroom. These morning festivities are for Grandparents and their grandchildren to enjoy. An evening performance of A Dicken’s of a Christmas for parents and family members will follow at 7pm.
This year for Grandparents Day you may choose between two options:
1. Grandparents may attend the 9:30AM Christmas program featuring our 3rd and 4th grade students AND attend the classroom visitation (cookie reception) immediately following. Due to limited space in the gymnasium, KDG, 1st and 2nd grade students will not be permitted in the program with the grandparents. They have a separate showing for all students.
2. Grandparents may attend the classroom visitation (cookie reception) ONLY which begins at 10:15.
Due to the limited parking on school grounds, we encourage grandparents to use the transportation shuttle we will be offering from Richville Church parking lot to Lohr Elementary’s front doors. This is open to all grandparents that are able to ride school transportation. This shuttle will begin at 8:55 and run until the conclusion of the Grandparents Day program (11:00AM).
Richville Church is located at 6125 Richville Dr. SW (Intersection of Richville and Faircrest – map).
During the week of November 18-22 Lohr Elementary partnered with the Make-A-Wish organization as part of Make a Difference Week. Make-A-Wish works to grant wishes to children with life-threatening medical conditions as a means of enriching the human experience with hope, strength and joy. Throughout the week students helped by purchasing a Make-A-Wish STAR for $1.00 which was displayed in the school with their name on it. Many also donated a new toy or game for the Make-A-Wish toy closet. We collected a total of $260.42! Thank you for making a difference!
