At Lindsey, we are piloting MAP Accelerator. This is a program where our student's MAP performance is linked to Khan Academy so a customized learning path can be developed. During the month of May, our teachers have attend professional learning on this and we have been working to get all students logged in and started before the year's end.
This will be an excellent tool and resource to our families over Summer Break. We will provide more information about how to use this tool but wanted to immediately share a parent handout for our eager families.

The Lake County Captains have reinstated their reading program!
The program is a bit different this year as far as the game is concerned.
As you read the form that your student brings home you will notice that the game selection has changed a little from years past. Normally each school would pick one date for all of their students/families to attend, but this year with a socially distant seating layout and reduced capacity that has been changed. Each family will be able to select any game they would like to attend in May or June during the 2021 Captains Season. They want to make sure everyone has a fair opportunity to come to a game and believe this will be the best way to make sure that happens. To pick your date, the forms can be filled out and mailed back to the Lake County Captains or parents can call the office of the Lake County Captains to set up their tickets.
Due to restrictions set by Major League Baseball, no fans will be allowed on the field anytime before/during the game this season. This means that they unfortunately will not be able to have the reading program parade before games like they have had in the past. The Lake County Captains hope to bring this back next season!
