Good afternoon Staff and Community Partners,

It is a bitter sweet time for our school community. My season as the Principal of Dr. Charles T. Lunsford School # 19 will end on this Friday, July 1 , 2016. I will begin my new role as Senior Director of Parent Engagement on July 5, 2016. I will miss you all so much. However, I am only 5 minutes away . I will be in touch and I do plan to attend some of your school events. I love you all very much . I just want to thank you for all that you have done for School # 19 . In addition to my leaving the school, Mr. Allen and Dr. Brazwell will also be taking on new roles in The Rochester City School District. No matter what, please remember that “ Together we are one. “ If you need anything, I am only a phone call and email away. Take care of our students and take good care of yourselves this summer. To our community partners, you will be in good hands next year. Please stay connect to School # 19. “ It takes a village to raise a child.” ( African Proverb.)

  • Mugs for Maramara

    Posted by Mrs. Davis at 2/19/2016
    Mugs For Auction
    After 7th graders read A Long Walk to Water by Linda Sue Parks, ENL teacher, Andrea Davis connected with Northridge Church who is linked with World Concern, a global relief and development agency. The connection was made to provide 7th graders with a text to self-connection and a way for the students to give back. Mrs. Davis, 7th grade ELA teacher Mrs. Thesing and art teacher Ms. Keefe led 7th graders in the commitment to design and sell mugs to raise money for those living in Maramara, an isolated village in Africa.
    Mugs are selling for $5.00. All of the money will go to World Concern where they will teach those living in Maramara how to make farming during the dry season possible, ways to have clean drinking water and how to develop a better education system.
    Three mugs are currently being auctioned until the end of February. The three mugs are designed by Abshir, Iyanna, and Ms. Keefe.

  • February Break

    Posted by Mrs. Myers at 2/13/2016

    Reading for pleasure inside and outside of school has real and long-lasting benefits. It unlocks the power of information and imagination and helps children discover who they are. Here at School 19 we would like to partner with you to support reading this February break.   We are asking that families select one of the following activities to participate in during this winter break.

    • Reading Packet (provided by your child’s teacher).
    • Compass Learning activities- your student can log in from home or a local library!
    • Completing a Reading Log.

    Each completed activity must be signed off by an adult and turned in to your child’s teacher when we return after break.

    Please be sure to take advantage of the many events and resources available at the local libraries.

    Enjoy your week off!
