Lisbon Elementary Newsletter

December 2020 Edition

Celebrating Students, Staff and the Season

What a month (a little over) that it has been since our last newsletter! We've been in-person, virtual, on holiday break, and now we are approaching another holiday break! The one constant that has been present the entire time is our amazing staff, students, families, and community partners that we continue to collaborate with. Our virtual time together was a great reminder for me of how much I love seeing students and teachers every day in-person. It is very difficult to replicate an in-person experience but I am proud of our students and staff for their flexibility and inspiring response to a tough situation. I am incredibly grateful for the experiences and joy that the Lisbon Community has brought to my family and I in 2020 and I look forward to much more in 2021! I wish you all a great holiday season and new year!

Classroom Camp Out

Mrs. Robertson's 3rd grade class worked together to earn 15 red tickets by following PBIS expectations. Their "red ticket party" was a classroom camp out, complete with stories by the "fire", smores, and tents. Students wore pajamas, shined flashlights and glowed in the black light!
