LIW Round-Up

De Smet, SD

The survey says...

Thank you to everyone who has expressed interest in the Parent/Teacher Organization. Over 57% people responded that an evening meeting would be the most convenient. The top rated focus item was to fund new and emerging technology with school staff appreciation coming in second. Join us for the first Parent/Teacher meeting on Tuesday, October 20th at 7pm in the LIW gym!


We have been fortunate to have gorgeous fall weather! Mrs. Fast took her students on a nature walk. They had a great time learning outdoors! See the pictures below.

Online Programs

We have seen some great results with the new Reading Plus program from students working on it outside of school time! Parents of students in grades 3-5, let Mrs. Abi know if you need more information on how to help your child's reading skills grow. Even 15-20 minutes over the weekend can make a big difference!


I would like to remind parents about an online math program that is also available for all elementary students to work on at home. The website is https://www.ixl.com/signin/liw. Students sign in with their lunch number and the password is liw.
