INTERNATIONAL DOT DAY 2021 at L. K. MOSS On September 15, 2003, author and illustrator of children’s books, Peter H. Reynolds released his book “The Dot.” One teacher in Iowa, Terry Shay, introduced the book to his entire classroom on September 15, 2009. This led to the observance of International Dot Day every year on September 15. International Dot Day is celebrated by adults and children to boost their courage so that their creative potential is released. It is a great day to connect and collaborate, and to celebrate self-expression. ‘Make your mark’ and see where it takes you on International Dot Day on Wednesday, September 15th. “WEAR CLOTHES WITH DOTS ON THEM THAT DAY.”

From the Desk of the Mrs. Holmes: Dear LK Moss Families, Welcome to the 2021 - 2022 school year! I am thrilled to welcome you back to school. It is truly an honor for me to be the Principal of LK Moss Elementary School. I am privileged to work with an outstanding staff to make it a smooth transition for our students. We are excited to work closely with you to ensure the success and well-being of all of our students. We have been working hard all summer to plan for a safe opening of school and to implement best practices to lessen the risks associated with the Covid-19 pandemic. Our classrooms have been modified to increase social distancing, face masks are optional in the building, but mandatory on the buses. We’ve added touchless water fountains also to help ensure safety measures. LK Moss Elementary School is such a special place to learn and grow. We are proud of our beautiful school and have high expectations for each and every student. We emphasize for every student to be kind, compassionate, and inquisitive. Together with our dedicated staff, we strive to make connections with students to help them feel valued, accepted, and safe. We appreciate your support as you work with students at home to practice safety protocols such as wearing a mask and washing hands. We encourage families to stay connected and informed by following our district website for important updates and information regarding our school policies. We look forward to a great year!!!
