Field Day Attire

Field days start this week. I will get this question: "What is the dress code." Please ensure you dress appropriately. No short shorts, yoga, or workout pants. You may wear Bermuda shorts, capris, field day or LCES spirit wear. If you question your attire, then please don't do it! If Daisy Duke, Richard Simmons, or Kim Kardashian come to mind, PLEASE don't do it..at least not at school!

Journals

If you have one of our 3 positive note journals, Please turn back in to Tina.

Bragging On...

Adam Heidenreich

Wow! What an amazing job you have done this year. My son only joined choir because his sister wanted to sing with him in the shared holiday concert. He said he was only going to do the one semester for her. Boy, was he wrong. You have opened up a new world for my rather introverted, shy non theatrical kid. The concert was incredible. I can’t believe how much you were able to accomplish in a club that meets once a week. You are a fantastic teacher and I am so happy my children were fortunate enough to have you.

School Goals to support our LSPI

  2. Use data/student work to plan
  3. Deconstruct the standards


eCLASS Goals

  1. Class websites should be linked through eCLASS.
  2. Classwork/Homework assigned weekly through eCLASS (not 'extra' work).
  3. Use discussion boards at least 1x for Language Arts and 1x for Math each Semester.
