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

Hello, Lighthouse Families,

The final week of the school year is quickly approaching. This time of year always brings mixed emotions among students and families. Students continue to work hard to complete learning goals and present their inquiries to staff and peers. I hope that students and staff look back on the year proud of everything they have accomplished.


End of the year celebration: We will be celebrating everyone’s hard work and accomplishments at Able Park on Thursday, June 9. We will begin walking to Able Park at 11 a.m. If you are interested in chaperoning, please contact your child’s advisor. Following our time at the park, our wonderful PTO will be providing treats at Lighthouse at 2 p.m. for students and their families. We would love to see you!


Report Cards: With the conclusion of the year, Lighthouse Report cards for Trimester 3 will be ready for parents to view on Campus Parent Portal on Friday, June 17 after 4 p.m.


Book Return: Please ensure that your child has returned all books they may have checked out from the Lighthouse Library before the end of the school year.


We’re in the final stretch – let’s make it great!


With Gratitude,

Lisa Cisewski

Keep the learning going this summer

Summer provides opportunities for families to share in learning experiences together. We're offering some ideas to keep the learning going over the summer months. Your student's school-issued iPad can help support summer learning experiences.


  • Ideas for reading and writing this summer: Look for books or articles that build on a family or child's interest or upcoming event. Set some time each day or week, find a special location, and read aloud with the whole family. Talk with your child about what is being wondered about and learned in the reading. Each family member might keep a journal or write letters to others to keep and share experiences.
  • Where to find reading materials for children: Visit a public library to check out books or magazines including electronic books you can download and read on an iPad. MackinVia is Spring Lake Park School's digital library. Students can log in to the app on their school-issued iPad and check out a variety of electronic books. More information is available in the digital toolkit.
  • Math at home: Our grade K-5 resource, Bridges in Mathematics, offers Math at Home. This is available to students on their school-issued iPad and includes ideas to engage students in deep mathematical thinking that also includes some reading, writing and speaking. Access is free.


Have fun learning together with friends and family this summer!
