LSES Weekly Update

Exceptional things happen here!

Week of April 25-29

A peek into the 4th grade...

4th graders are in the middle of SBAC testing. They are doing a great job staying focused and doing their best. When they are not testing, they have been learning about how to survive tsunamis and earthquakes. They have also been working hard on their Science Fair projects. The science Fair will be on April 28 from 5:30PM-7:30PM. Come see their science projects, look through microscopes and play new, interactive puzzles!

4th graders are looking forward to their upcoming field trip to the Aroura Colonies. Nearly 600 people, almost all German and Swiss emigrants, established and lived in the Aurora Colony from 1856 to 1883. Students will get the chance to make candles, bake bread in a wood stove, use a cross-cut saw or spin wool, while they discover how pioneer families shared labor and helped each other. This is such a fun and interactive way for students to learn about history.

We want to congratulate our very own Mr. Stemple who ran in the Boston Marathon last week! The Boston Marathon has been an elite event for 119 years, but Mr. Stemple has only participated for 3 years. He ran so well, that he qualified for next year's race. Congratulations!!

Lincoln Street Kindergarten Orientation

LSES families with children entering Kindergarten in the fall of 2016 are asked to attend our Kindergarten Orientation on Thursday, May 12, from 6:00PM-7:30PM. We will share information that will help prepare students entering school for the first time. Future students and parents will be able to meet the teachers, take a tour of classrooms, learn about curriculum and the skills they should know before starting kindergarten. There will also be a dual-language presentation so that you can learn how this program will benefit your child. Parents will also learn about volunteer opportunities.
