Crisp air, fall leaves, holiday sales, and feasts with friends and family — we have a lot to be grateful for this time of year. Most of all, we’re thankful for educators who continue to inspire us and provide feedback that helps shape our learning. We all know this is a very hectic month, so from our LAC School Family to yours, we wish you a very merry holiday season. - Jay Eitner, CSA

In Dr. Burch's classes...

So far, it's been an amazing year for our digital shop program! From computer skills on chromebooks, to self-designed "tinkering" though the MaKey-Makey kits and Legos, our classes have been dedicated to exploring, crafting, and creating. Please check out this great video below on how cool MaKey-MaKey is!

In Mrs. Maniglia's class...

Our class has had a very busy first three months of school! We have learned our new friend’s names, teacher and staff names, become safe bus riders as well as adjusted to being in school all day and following its rules. Our year started off discovering the many signs of Fall and wrapped up with apple and pumpkin snacks sent in by our families. They were DELICIOUS!!! We have practiced all our fire safety rules and were thrilled to have a visit from our great friends, the LAC Firemen, they even let us squirt the hose on their truck. Halloween was a fun-filled day as we led off the school parade and were in the front row of the school Halloween picture. Election Day was a first for us – we got to vote. We learned all about going to the polls, we had on in our room, and had the opportunity to cast our vote for our favorite school lunch. Our results showed hot dogs were our favorite. Thanksgiving was awesome, as we celebrated the holiday with a feast with Kindergarten. Their class made delicious “Stone Soup” as they were transformed into Pilgrims. We made corn bread just like the Native Americans we portrayed did for the first Thanksgiving. We now know so much about the Pilgrims and Native Americans and their first Thanksgiving feast. It is hard to believe Christmas is right around the corner and we can’t wait to learn about the many ways and traditions people celebrate the holiday season. We want to wish all of you a happy and healthy holiday season!

In Mrs. Haenn's & Mrs. Mortimer's class...

Students have been working very hard this year in Math. All classes are also getting daily math practice by using our new ST Math program. The ST Math program is an individual online based program that allows students to achieve mastery at their own pace. Students are also able to continue enjoying the ST Math program by accessing it from home.

Fifth grade students have learned rules of operations and to multiply numbers with multiple digits. They are enjoying plotting data on a coordinate grid. The sixth grade class has completed reviewing and expanding their knowledge of rules of operations, using exponents, computation with whole numbers, fractions, and decimals. We are looking forward to beginning to work with algebraic expressions.Our seventh grade students have become quite comfortable with integers and rational numbers and are now experimenting with linear equations. Our eighth grade students have experienced multi-step equations with variables on both sides of the equal sign. Although it was quite challenging we successfully mastered this unit. We will next become familiar with transformations and will create translations, reflections and rotations with the assistance of Mrs. Hemple.
