I wanted to take a minute and let you know how much Mr. Allredge should be commended for his tireless efforts in afternoon carpool. Today I witnessed him pushing a car out of the carpool line into a parking space so the driver could secure assistance without holding up everyone behind her. I have, unfortunately, been one of those parents whose car would not crank when the line started moving.
Mr. Allredge always comes to our car door at the end of the day with a smile on his face and kindness toward the students. I'm sure his days can be long and tiring but he never shows it. Please let him know how much his kindness is appreciated.
Teach With Your Strengths
"I have to tell you that I think my computer just read [#] years of my heart, mind & soul. Wow. This was spot on. I loved it!"
"I actually enjoyed doing this!"
"Found this very interesting."
"Thank you for the book! I really enjoyed reading it!"
"I think the assessment has described me pretty well!"
One of our next steps with this knowledge will be to learn the strengths of the others on our team.
Students combined music and technology in Mr. H's class.
Each student in Mrs. Schroeder's small math group had the benefit of her checking to make sure they were on the right track multiple times in the lesson.
Our kids love the recognition of being called to the office for positive referrals each week.

School Goals to support our LSPI
Collaborative Planning Goals
- Collaboratively plan lessons
- Use data/student work to plan
- Deconstruct the standards
- Class websites should be linked through eCLASS.
- Classwork/Homework assigned weekly through eCLASS (not 'extra' work).
- Use discussion boards at least 1x for Language Arts and 1x for Math each Semester.
