Thank you to everyone that attended the PTG meeting on Monday evening. I have attached volunteer opportunities from the PTG.  Thank you to our 2018-19 officers:

Molly Farler, Jill Levenderis, Brian Revalee and Betsy Walker


Caitlin Campbell from the Oxford Lane Library shared the following reading stats from this summer.  Thank you to all of the parents that partnered with the Oxford Lane Library!


I was just running some Summer Reading stats and thought I'd share some of interest to you.


64 Kramer students completed the SR program by making it to Level 3. That is way more than any other elementary in the Lane Libraries area, including Fairfield and Hamilton. I think the next closest is around 20 kids or so. And the reading Kramer students completed--a little over 1800 hours-- accounts for 14% of Lane's total for the 4-7 and 8-11 age groups. So Bravo to you and those kiddos!


2018 Free & Reduced Lunch Application.  The application can be returned to your child's school.
