Week of May 13th...

LA Staff News


I need up to three teachers willing to be trained on ZSpace! What is ZSpace? In a nutshell, it is virtual learning. Example: while you go off site once a week to work on cars, kids can have an interactive way to continue their learning at LA through ZSpace. Using 3D glasses, the kids can work on a carburetor among many other thing (auto tech is just one of the modules)! If you are remotely interested, let me know. They want to know if you want PD in the summer or during inservice!

Monday: Joe Lutes observing today.

12:45 LHS Referrals tour LA

Tuesday: Seniors last day

SHOWCASE from 12:30-2:00: LPS staff, parents, partners, and patrons are invited to attend!! I have told Stacey to go ahead and ask if she can work during the day on Monday and Tuesday as I know that everyone will be in cleaning mode and it may be helpful if she can oversee us!

Panorama Survey (yes, again)

It's time to take the Panorama survey again!

We have until May 23rd, but is there any way that there will be a senior cohort on Monday or Tuesday so we can get feedback from this large group??

Here is the info to take the survey. Basically, the key is to ask them to be earnest while taking it. If they are just going to click through without reading, we'd rather not have them take it.

Important LINKS to review as you participate in the Panorama SEL Spring Survey

LPS Panorama School Proctor/Coordinator Survey Link:


LPS Staff Panorama Login Link:


LPS Panorama Student Login Link:


*Note: Student login access code is similar to the winter survey*

The login access code for students is the letters and numbers before the @ symbol in their student email address.

Example: Sample student Jimmy Hope has a district email account. The email is jhop2263@lps53.org. Jimmy's student Panorama access code is jhop2263.

Retirement Tea on Thursday

Swing by for 5 minutes or stay for an hour! The annual LPS Retirement Tea is a great time to thank our colleagues, like Robin, for their contributions to education.
