Weekly Newsletter for LCMS Staff

By Tami Gunset

Staff,

What a busy weekend, but the great news is it's a short work week. Please make sure you are aware of the calendar events as we have lots going on this week and several staff out due to training. We would love to see you at the Middle School Track Championship supporting our track athletes. We will need help with running the meet off and would welcome any help in the concession stand, as this is our last time to raise money for our LCMS PTO. Our NJHS new member inductions are this Thursday at 6pm, staff needs to be in attendance. I moved awards during the school day, so this is the only after school commitment this last six weeks. NJHS is usually less than 45 minutes and it is a great recognition for our students.



Summer School:

Summer School is just around to the corner and I will need teachers to plan accordingly. We will begin to pull student's previous STAAR scores, unit assessments and final year grade in core courses to determine if our students will need to attend summer school. Our summer school program will offer small group individualized instruction to close the learning gaps. Our summer school program will provide that extra attention our students need to strengthen their weakness in the areas of math and reading.


* Summer School Dates: Monday, June 6 - Wednesday, June 22 from 8am-12pm @ Lubbock-Cooper Middle School.


6th and 7th grade Summer School for Reading and Math will run from June 6 to June 17, two intense weeks of instruction.


8th grade Summer School for 3rd Administration for Reading and Math will run from June 6 to June 22, 13 days of individualized instruction for those that need to pass the 3rd Administration of STAAR.


21st Century Enrichment Summer School will be held on Tuesday, May 31 to Friday, June 17. I know that we will host a cooking class, crossfit and other engaging class.


Staff NEEDED:

6th grade Reading and Math Teacher

7th grade Reading and Math Teacher

8th grade Reading and Math Teacher

Attendance Recovery - TA

Office Personnel for summer school - TA


* Please let me know as soon as possible if you are interested. I won't know numbers until we have collected all data to determine who needs to attend. Thanks in advance for helping our struggling students and believing in them.

SCHOOL ASSEMBLY

We will be attending an assembly at the PAC on April 14. Manny Scott, An original Freedom Writer whose story is told in part in the 2007 hit movie, Freedom Writers, has energized over a million leaders, educators, volunteers, and students worldwide with his authentic, inspiring messages of hope. Speaking to over 125 groups a year for the past decade, he is the speaker of choice for conferences, conventions, schools, fundraisers, and banquets.

Manny has a gift: the ability to connect with, hold the attention of, and energize all kinds of audiences. From inner-city youth to business executives, Manny has learned to speak, and command, the language of his audiences with relevant, riveting, and compelling messages, moving them from cheers, to laughter, to tears, and go-forward determination.


* ALL Staff will attend and sit with our students. There will be several guest joining us as from outside our district as well as some from within our district. He will be speaking to all secondary campuses.

We are in preliminary planning for the 2nd Annual LCISD Google Academy and are making a call for presenters. If you are interested, please fill out the form attached. Sessions will be 45 minutes long and can be on anything Google. The more options we have the better our Academy will be.

* We sent several staff members to the Technology Conference so it was an expectation for us to present during LCISD Professional Development, so this is a great opportunity for you to present or you will be expected to present at the LCISD Symposium. We also have some teachers using Google in their classrooms, I would encourage you to present at this academy.
