Lee’s Crossing

Monthly Newsletter                                                                       June 2009




Hello Neighbors!


 I hope that everyone is having a great start to their summer vacation!  The Board would like to send out a huge THANK YOU to Phil Wooten, Betty Foley and all of their many helpers for making this year’s pool opening party a tremendous success.  You folks are awesome! 


I would also like to take this opportunity to thank David Geiger for getting the banner printed up with the names of all of our graduates on it.  I have had many people comment on how nice it looked.  Thanks again David and congratulations seniors! 


Please continue to be aware of the increased number of kids around the neighborhood due to school being out.  Let’s all do our part to set a good example for our children and drive safely. 


As always, if you should have any comments or concerns, please do not hesitate to call me.  My home phone number is (770) 420-3484.  Take care, and I will see you around the neighborhood!

Lee’s Crossing Cyclones

Neighborhood Swim Team


Reminder to all residents:


The swim team will be holding meets at our neighborhood pool on both June 4th and June 18th.  The pool will close at 4pm on these days in order for us to set up for the meet.  The meet begins at 6pm.  You are welcome to stop by and see our team in action.


In addition, we will be holding our End-of-Season Party on Monday June 29th.  The pool will close at 5pm to accommodate this event.


We have 112 swimmers this season ranging in age from 5 to 18 years in age.  Although the weather has not helped in warming up the pool water for our swimmers, we have had great practice sessions and all our swimmers are improving.  We are looking forward to a great season.




Reading Adventures


Summer reading groups are being offered for rising 1st and 2nd graders through Reading Adventures.  Reading Adventures is a program designed to encourage enthusiasm for reading by incorporating a relevant experience into each reading lesson.  This experience will be the springboard for the reading of children’s literature and the teaching of specific skills.  Skills in the areas of phonics, sight word recognition, comprehension, fluency and writing will be taught in a guided reading, group setting.

I live in Lee’s Crossing and am a certified elementary school teacher with experience as a reading specialist.  I am offering 2 sessions of Reading Adventures.  Classes will take place on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday over the course of 2 weeks, for a total of 6 classes per session.  Classes will last from 9:30 – 11:30am each day.

The cost per 6 day session is $120.00.  Sessions are limited to 5 students.

Session 1:

For rising 1st graders  - June 9 - 11 and June 16 – 18.

Session 2:

For rising 2nd graders:  June 23 – 25 and June 30 – July 2

If you are interested in learning more or have questions about this program, please contact me.

Author On The Square!


Lee’s Crossing resident Diana Black will sign her early reader picture book Wendel Wordsworth: No Words for Wendel at doodlebugz, located at 15 West Park Square on Friday, June 5, from 6 to 8 p.m. (770.792.6734)


Her appearance is part of Art on the Square, an event supported by several local merchants.


Black’s storybook (PreK-2) is an original tale of determination, bravery and unexpected friendship. The author/illustrator has created a story, characters, activities, teacher tools and a sing-along song to entertain and engage the most reluctant reader.


Black will also sign the PreK-3 book, To School, To School in the Big Yellow Bus, part of a comprehensive safety program she co-developed, as well as her co-authored nonfiction humor book WOOF: Women Only Over Fifty. The latter approaches the “joys” of expanding waistlines, empty nests and muddled memories with canine-themed humor.


Wendel Wordsworth: No Words for Wendel (BevBruemmerBooks/ISBN: 978-0-9800087-7-7) available at www.WendelWordsworth.com & www.BevBruemmerBooks.com

WOOF: Women Only Over Fifty (Echelon Press/ISBN: 978-1-59080-606-7) available at Barnes & Noble, Amazon.com, EchelonPress.com and www.woofersclub.com.
