We want to welcome Liz Withers to the Linford Family! She will be the long term substitute in PE for Mrs. Garson, who is currently out on leave until winter break. Ms. Withers will be with us until December 18, so if your students come home talking about a new teacher in PE, you’ll know what they’re talking about! She has spent some time the last few weeks shadowing Mrs. Garson, and she is familiar with our students and the PE program. Thank you Ms. Withers for stepping in! We appreciate it!
Linford kicked off the Positive Behavioral Intervention & Supports assembly today in the gym. All students at Linford follow the 3 B’s, Be Safe, Be Respectful, Be Responsible. At different times during the year, students are recognized for their positive behavior with small celebrations. At the beginning of the year, the positive behaviors are kicked off with the annual fire truck assembly. Thank you Laramie Fire Department for volunteering your time and equipment for our students to celebrate this special event!
Office newsletters and important information will be posted on the second Friday of every month, after we’ve had our school’s site council and PTA meetings. The office newsletter will also be sent home with children, one hard copy per family. If you prefer reading it online and would like to save paper, please notify your child’s classroom teacher that you do not need a paper copy of the office newsletter. Thank you!
Attached you will find the Parent/Student district handbook. Please take the time to read over the handbook. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us in the office.
Mr. Hardesty & Mrs. Anfinson
It is our goal at Linford Elementary to differentiate our instruction as well as practices to meet the needs of students. We are sensitive, that is, to the needs of individual students in order to maintain a safe and optimal learning environment. Currently some of our students have contact allergies to peanuts. These allergies are severe and can result in life threatening situations. Therefore, we ask that parents consider not sending their students to school with any food items that contains or has been manufactured on equipment with peanuts. We recognize that it is an inconvenience and appreciate the community effort that you all are willing to extend to assist us our attempts to have a safe environment for all students. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to call Mr. Hardesty or Mrs. Anfinson.
Thank you! 307-721-4439
