On the Side of Hope!

All Means All!


Last week we shared the Beliefs created by our teachers in each grade level. Our Specials Team, Special Education Team, and Instructional Specialists Team will soon be creating Beliefs posters, as well.

NOW look at what our students believe! Click here or the the picture below to listen to what our students believe they can accomplish.

Look how the beliefs are connected with the 4 Cornerstones and the No Excuses University Beliefs!

Resource Stewardship

  • In LISD, when we say we want to be good stewards of our resources, we aren't just talking about taxpayer dollars.
  • Resource stewardship is about three things: our time, talent and treasure.
  • Strike a positive work/life balance with our time;
  • Nurture our talents as educators through meaningful professional learning;
  • Manage our treasure in a fiscally responsible way while still meeting student needs.

We¹ve created a Google site that provides more information about dyslexia, samples of what it may look like and what steps to take to begin the identification process for your student. As always if you have any questions or concerns please don¹t hesitate to contact us. We are here to
