Principal's Message

Dear William Anderson Families,

Hello Anderson Families 

   We have completed our 2021-2022 school year. This year has had many memorable moments filled with joy, laughter and smiles and has also proved that we can overcome any challenge brought our way. I want to thank our Anderson families and community for your very diligent manner of monitoring your child for any illness or suspicious symptoms that may have led to COVID . Because of you, our staff and teachers we have effectively kept our student COVID case numbers below 20 between March and today. This summer please take the time to enjoy your kiddos as well as take advantage of the many Summer Programs available through our Lawndale Elementary School District. Our last day of instruction is Friday June 10th and that day will be a minimum day meaning our dismissal will be 1:05 for TK - 3rd grade and 1:10 for 4th and 5th grade. We want to wish all our Dolphin families a very safe, healthy, relaxing and joyous summer break. Anderson will continue to enroll new students at any grade level through June and again in August. If you know any families looking for a wonderful place for their children to learn please send them our way!  We look forward to seeing all of your smiling faces in the new school year. Our first day of instruction is Thursday August 25, 2022 with our doors opening at 8:00 AM for breakfast. Information will be sent out to families through our Class Dojo system and the email we have on file. Please keep the Class Dojo application active on your device as well as update your email with our office if needed to ensure that you are receiving our summer updates. Please feel free to reach out to our office for any questions you might have, we are happy to help in any way.

It has been a pleasure to partner with you as we ensure a bright future for your child.

Best wishes this summer,

Mrs. Rivas
