Imagine a school where all students are welcomed, included and celebrated. When you walk through the doors at Lannon Elementary School you understand why families want to send their children here. “Make Them Never Want to Miss a Day” is the motto of staff who care about all of our families and find meaningful ways to connect students to learning. We provide a supportive learning environment with opportunities to learn from failure while promoting each child’s individual strengths. The results are a positive, caring school with outstanding academic performance.
Order your spirit wear today
Lannon Home & School is sponsoring a SPIRIT WEAR SALE! Tee shirt options are $8 and $15. Pictures, sizing and order forms at this link. Orders are due Friday, September 20. Checks made to Lannon Home & School. Questions? firstname.lastname@example.org or Smaryhaley@yahoo.com.
Written notes no longer required if phone, email message sent
New this year, a written note is no longer required for normal daily absences when parents call or send emails notifying the school office. The Hamilton School Board made this change to simplify the normal daily absence notification process for families.
Schools prefer that parents report absences by calling the school office at (262) 255-6106 or emailing a message to email@example.com.
A Family Vacation Request form must still be completed when students will be absent for a family vacation, and state law requires that written notices must be provided to the school office for absences for religious reasons.
Lannon Elementary yearbooks must be ordered individually. Don’t miss out on your chance to order your student a 2019-20 yearbook. Order online today by visiting the Life Touch website here.

Learn about Seniors & Students Program
The Seniors & Students Volunteer Program has been in place in the Hamilton School District for more than 20 years, and today approximately 250 senior citizens support our students in many ways. If your child’s grandparent or a grandpal might be interested in this volunteer program, please let them know they are invited to a Seniors and Students Coffee Sept. 24 from 9:30-10:30 a.m. at Maple Avenue Elementary School.
Feel free to send them the Seniors and Students Coffee Flier which has more details about the event.
Take Exam Report to doctor
The Hamilton School District and State of Wisconsin encourages parents to have their kindergarten child’s eyes tested by an eye care professional. If you choose to do so (it is not required), please take the Examination Report (English, Spanish) to your eye care professional, have it filled out there, and return a copy to school. Should you choose not to have your child’s eyes tested, there is no further action on your part. As a resource, Vision USA offers financial assistance for those without insurance. The website is http://www.woa-eyes.org/vision-usa-public.
5 ways to stay connected at Lannon Elementary
Our newsletter, Lannon Cardinal Reporter is sent to parents each Thursday to inform you about what is happening at school and provide opportunities for involvement. Be sure you click on anything underlined or the pictures as this usually will take you to additional information.
Here are some tips to keep you connected and informed:
- Look for the links under Community Events in the lower right corner to find afterschool and community activities for your children. Paper flyers are no longer sent home with children.
- Whitelist addresses with our domain (@hamilton.k12.wi.us) by adding them to your contacts or configure your junk or SPAM filters so they are recognized as safe.
- Check your email junk folder if you have not received a school newsletter in a week.
- Do not use the unsubscribe option at the bottom of our email messages. Instead, go into the Infinite Campus Portal and change your email address or settings. When an email is unsubscribed using the option on the newsletter, the district is not able to send to that address in the future. This includes messages sent from our school and all other communication from the district or other schools.
- Be aware that if you forward a message, the recipient is able to unsubscribe your email address from our system without your knowledge.
Families, sharing birthday treats can be a fun birthday celebration but by no means is it an expectation. If you plan to send a birthday treat for your child’s classroom please be aware of the following:
- Student allergies. Teachers will notify families if they have a classroom with allergy restrictions. Original boxes and packaging with ingredient lists are appreciated whenever possible.
- Send only enough treats for the students in the classroom, and you are welcome to include the teacher and assistant if you’d like.
- We are asking items not be shared outside of the classroom.
Thank you for understanding as we work to celebrate while respecting the sensitivities of others and minimizing disruptions to the school day.
Turn in summer math packet
Please remember to turn in your summer math packet to your classroom teacher by Sept. 27. It must have your name and current teacher listed on the sheet. If you completed the packet, you will receive a treat from Mrs. Lorenz for your hard work.
