Dear Lovejoy Families,

I hope that everyone had a great weekend celebrating all of the amazing Moms in our community. Can you believe that we only have 3 weeks left in our school year? The last day for our teachers having Zoom meetings will be Thursday, May 21st. For the last week of school, students will still receive a one pager, but this will not require technology. We will be collecting all of the technology and library books that you have at home while also distributing your child's supplies the last week of school. I highly encourage you to attend your child's assigned time so they can say a goodbye to their teacher.

I hope that your family join us in the May Family Social Media Challenge. Details are listed below, and I know it will be a fun event for your family. I can't wait to see the all of the posts.

As always, please feel free to email me or call me with any questions or concerns.

All My Best,
Wendy Craft
214-551-4503 (cell)

My mission is to be a servant leader who works with students, parents, and staff to build a community that fosters relationships and learning where everyone THRIVES. Each day, I strive to make the choice to be great versus comfortable, because you can't be both!

Each teacher will be sending more information out to the parents through an email or Seesaw Post.

Save the Date!  End of Year Supply Pick Up & Drop Off

It is time to begin rounding up supplies for return to Lovejoy! Items which will need to be returned:
  • Library Books
  • Leveled Library Books (Mrs. Forman’s books/bookbag books loaned from school & 1st Grade Book Bags)
  • Take Flight borrowed materials
  • Special Education borrowed devices/materials
  • iPads/Chromebooks checked out from LES - Please don't forget the chargers!

Your teachers are rounding up desk and locker items to return to you at the same time! 

I highly encourage you to come on your specific child's day. Grade level teachers will be there to greet your students and to give one more "goodbye." We know this will mean coming up on multiple days for those of you with siblings. If you'd like us to combine, let us know and we will make it happen.

Health & Wellness Tips from Nurse Debbie

Dear Lovejoy Family,

As Governor Abbott is gradually lifting restrictions, we encourage you to remain cautious.  There is a lot of conflicting information available.  The following links from the CDC have helpful guidance on how to keep yourself and your family safe.


Stay safe and well,
Your Lovejoy Nurses
