May, 2023

Dear Lackawanna Trail Community,

Thank you for partnering with us on our journey through this academic year.  We have so much to celebrate and so much to look forward to.  In the next academic year our high school students will be exposed to a more robust academic curriculum with more course offerings, our elementary students will have a STEAM Special added to the weekly rotation, and we will continue to implement our comprehensive plan.  Indeed we are making progress toward our overarching goals of expanding School Wide Positive Behavior Intervention and Support, improving school safety, and elevating our standardized test scores in English and Math.  In addition, through a grant we have added a social worker to meet the growing needs of all of our students district-wide. These are a few of the highlights of the upcoming 2023-2024 academic year.  For a full view of next year’s calendar please click HERE.

As this year winds down, and the most challenging parts of the pandemic are behind us, let’s focus on closing out with our celebrations of student success.  Our last day of classes is Wednesday June 7th.  This will be an early dismissal district-wide.  Sixth Grade Recognition will also take place on the morning of June 7th.  This  ceremony recognizes the accomplishments of our sixth grade students as they prepare to move from the elementary to the junior – senior high school.  Class Night for the seniors, which recognizes their academic and athletic accomplishments, will be held on the evening of June 7th.  A Class of 2023 parade routed through the heart of our school district is slated for the evening of Thursday June 8th, and Commencement for the Class of 2023 is scheduled for the evening of Friday June 9th, weather permitting.  More details about each event will be provided as the dates draw near.

I hope everyone enjoys the concluding events and ceremonies of this academic year and you are looking forward to next year.  We are – Lion Proud!
