Today was the first day of school for Oldham County Schools, and we had a great first day (so far!). The PTA arranged to have a safari theme set up for the kids to walk through. We had plants donated by LaGrange Florist, animals, balloons, and some awesome volunteers there to help us greet the children as they arrived at their brand new school this morning. Each child received a Locust Grove Elementary School book mark to “mark” the occassion, and WLKY Channel 32 News was there too!
In addition to the opening day safari, we were also able to provide each classroom with a bag of balls, sidewalk chalk, jump ropes, and frisbes (courtesy of Cash Express). We wanted to give the kids a little something extra on the first day since there is no play ground yet, and the gym isn’t ready.
As the PTA VP of Programs, thanks so much to my Opening Day Volunteers. You guys did a fantastic job coordinating the Opening Day events. The school looked great this morning!
Hey everyone! Can you believe that school is just about ready to start? I can hardly believe it!
I just wanted to post a quick update about Registration and Open House for the new Locust Grove Elementary School. Registration Day for Locust Grove is tomorrow, July 31 from 8:00 AM – 7:30 PM at East Oldham Middle School. If you’ve never been to East Oldham Middle School, it’s right off of Hwy 22 about 5 miles down the road from Hwy 53 if you are coming from LaGrange. I’ll be working the registration tables from 8-10 tomorrow morning, say hi if you get a chance!
Open House for Locust Grove Elementary School has been CANCELLED! Due to the construction schedule, the school has decided to cancel the Open House AND the GAP (get acquainted program) for Kindergarteners and 1st Graders.
I’ll try to keep this site updated as we get closer if anything changes.
Can you believe that Summer Vacation is almost half over? It’s hard to believe that in about a month and a half school will start again. If you’re going to the new Locust Grove Elementary School, you’re probably even more excited (or nervous), because the school is brand spankin’ new, and there are questions about whether it will be ready in time or not.
According to the Principal, Mrs. Arnold, the school will be open and ready for children on the first day. Some of the areas may not be ready for use, but the class rooms will be ready.
Registration Day for all students at the new Locust Grove Elementary School is scheduled for July 31 beginning at 9:00 a.m. (I believe that this is probably going to take place at the Middle School next door?)
Open House is tentatively scheduled for August 7.
These dates are tentative and could change. Keep up to date with what’s going on at Locust Grove through their website.
