Principal's Message

Dear Outstanding Osprey,

We’re marching into the month of March with great anticipation.  This month we celebrate our Moms, Grandmothers, Aunts, and other amazing women.  Thank you for the example you set and the legacy you leave for us.  It’s a great time to read about other women throughout history who fought for what they believed and sacrificed much.

We have our Harry-Potter inspired house system up and running.  All students belong to one of five houses that are inspired by Lowcountry animals and the African languages.  Students had their first house meeting with the teachers/staff leading their house last week where they learned how their house shows our five core values through actions.  For example, Umholi (“leaders” – blue house, mascot: dolphin) show the core value of integrity by doing the right thing, because as leaders, others are always watching!  Ask your child to share more about their house with you.

Hats off to the staff members who contributed to our Black History Month program.  A lot of history was shared through the songs, dances, Osprey History Channel interviews of famous African Americans, and poetry.  Ms. Newton and Mrs. Chapman gave the students a run with their stellar performances as did the BHS Eagle Voices choir.  Stay tuned for more great acts to follow.  101 Dalmatians takes the stage on Friday, March 23rd at 6:00 PM.  Come out and support our budding actors and actresses. 

While there is so much to be proud of, it is necessary to let you know that your child’s safety is our number one goal.  As a staff, we participate in trainings and review protocols yearly.  We will do our part to educate students, because we want them to react quickly and quietly in the event of a threat to their safety.  Please contact Mr. Osborne, assistant principal, if you have questions about safety drills.

In closing, thank you for supporting your child and the programs at Lady’s Island Elementary. 

Until next time,

Mrs. Ulmer
