Dear families,


Exceptional things are happening at LSES! Make sure to talk to your student about the things they are learning in school and review those concepts at home. Also, please review the activities happening this week. We hope to see you all this Friday at 6:00 for the fun night our amazing PTO and PAC have organized!

A peek into the 6th grade...

The 6th grade has been spreading some kindness! They have just completed The Great Kindness Challenge. The Great Kindness Challenge is one school week devoted to performing as many acts of kindness as possible. The GKC has the power to increase empathy, tolerance, and compassion for all students by keeping students mindful of others by preforming random acts of kindness. The goal is to create a culture of kindness in our school that will spill over in to our every day lives. They celebrated by having themed dress-up days, making Love Rocks, and completing an acts of kindness checklist. Love rocks were hidden all over our school and community in hopes they will bring a smile to someone when they find one. For more information on The Great Kindness Challenge, go to http://www.greatkindnesschallenge.org/index.html .


The 6th grade got an exciting look at renewable energy at a PGE sponsored Mad Science assembly this week. The assembly had our students captivated as they watched some fantastic experiments and some were even able to participate in these experiments. Students learned about energy supply issues facing our planet, how to differentiate between renewable and non-renewable power sources and the importance of conserving energy. Along with the science lesson, students were reminded of the importance of being safe around electricity.

A Message From Your School Counselors Ms. Sifers & Ms. Szukalla:

This month we will begin going into classrooms to help students understand the differences between playful teasing, hurtful teasing, being mean, and bullying. Students will learn communication skills and techniques to help them become supportive friends and classmates. We will also talk about “tattling” versus “reporting”. Students are encouraged to report bullying to an adult (teacher, school counselor, parent, etc.) immediately. Our goal at LSES is to create a safe environment where all students can learn and grow. For more information on what you can do as a parent, check out: http://www.edutopia.org/blog/bullying-prevention-tips-teachers-parents-anne-obrien .


If you have any questions or concerns, please email, call, or stop by to talk with us!
