Jaguar Corner

Hello, Jaguars!

  • Congratulations to super Jaguar Artist, Callyn, whose artwork was featured in the Art for Arthritis Gala this past weekend!
  • To all my Jaguar Car Riders: I love you all :-) Please remember not to leave your car until you hear the bell at 8:45am. I do not have scheduled staff supervision until 8:45am. From a safety and security standpoint, Jaguars should remain in their cars until the doors open at 8:45am. In the event that I needed to evacuate families from the car line, we would shelter in place inside the school. Thanks so much for your help.
  • Thank you for your participation in the first Community Engagement Series at LSHS this past week. It is important that your voice is heard as we dream about the learning spaces for our kids to prepare them for their future. I will be sending out information on the second Community Engagement Series soon.
  • LSR7 is engaging in Math Professional Development with Greg Tang.
  • SVE staff has been working hard in the past year to help our kids understand and utilize academic vocabulary. Quite often, our kids may know how to tackle an answer, but the vocabulary used in the question trip them up. This happens to me all the time when I am tasked with trying to fix something at my house. If I don't understand the kitchen sink vocabulary or the furnace vocabulary, it's not getting fixed by me. Here is an example of "Jaguar Jargon" we are weaving into our daily learning to help our kids tackle complex and multi-step problems.
