The Leopard Call 
  
Dear Families and Friends of Ladd,
The school board has tasked every elementary school to create a viable plan for becoming a K-8 model to be presented in May.  The PTA will have a general membership meeting at 5:30 pm on Monday, December 5th.  Our K-8 meeting will begin after the regular business meeting.  We will highlight what we love about Ladd, look at opportunities a K-8 model will bring, share the timeline for implementation, and layout the process for planning.  Your input is valued.  I hope to see you there.
  ~ Cori Anthony, Principal
