Veterans Day 2015

On Wednesday, the 11th day of the 11th month, we honored and thanked the many men and women who have made so many sacrifices over the years for our country. We did this by hosting a breakfast for our thirty veterans who came, escorting them into a packed cafetorium where they were greeted with thunderous applause, and dedicating a wonderful, patriotic show to them. It was a magical moment here at LMES and I know that our students, staff, guests and parents will remember it for the rest of their lives.

Interdisciplinary Units

An interdisciplinary lesson is one that integrates more than one subject at the same time. In fourth grade, I observed a lesson that integrated math (fractions, spatial reasoning) and social studies (geography, communities), as well as critical thinking, creative thinking and citizenship. Students were given a real-world project of designing a park that met specific criteria such as a playground, parking, signs, etc. Students used various resources in the classroom to help them, and the energy in the room was electric!
