Lighthouse School Newsletter

See translation information below / Consulte la información de traducción a continuación.

Hello, Lighthouse Families,

It’s a short week and we’re making the most of it! Students did a great job on the first day of MCA testing yesterday. Tomorrow, they will take the Math MCA. More MCA testing is coming next week for our high school students and grades 5-8 Science.


Here are a couple of helpful ways to support your student during MCA testing:

● Make sure students are well rested and ready to go for testing in the morning.

● Attendance is important! Make sure your student is here each day and is on time for school.

● Be positive! Remind your student how this is a great chance to show what they know and to simply do their best.


Please note that there is no school this Friday, April 15. Students will return to school on Monday April 18. Please make sure you have a plan for care this Friday.


I hope everyone enjoys the long weekend, and we will see you back next week!


With gratitude,

Lisa Cisewski
