This Is How We Lakeview
January 2023 Edition: Volume 2
Level Up - Week 2!
Reminder that there is NO SCHOOL on Monday as we honor Martin Luther King Junior's life and legacy.
This past week students completed their iReady Reading Winter Diagnostic. This coming week, students will be taking the second iReady Math diagnostic. In the coming weeks, teachers will be having data chats with the students so that they can see their current iReady scores and know their predicted Performance Level for the upcoming Ohio State Tests (OSTs). Level 1 = Limited, Level 2 = Basic, Level 3 = Proficient, Level 4 = Accomplished, Level 5 = Advanced.
Our goal over the next 11 weeks is to work with the students, providing enrichment and intervention so that the students gain one level (or Level Up) on their predicted scores (see the Level Up Plan below). I have also included "Tips to Support Your Student with iReady" to help them achieve this goal.
For future planning:
Junior High Scheduling will begin in the middle of February. Be on the lookout for more scheduling information in future newsletters.
CCP Information Night
The district will be hosting a CCP Information Night in person in the PAC at Pickerington North on Wednesday, February 8th, at 6:30pm. This would be more for our 8th grade students as CCP classes are offered at the high school level.

8th grade students - the Global Scholars program at North is now accepting applications for the 23-24 school year!
Interested in addressing real global-local issues while learning about global cultures and careers? The application is open for the 23-24 incoming cohort of the Global Scholars program!
Ideally, students start as freshmen or sophomores so that they can finish all three years of the program. Students enjoy off-campus adventures to locations such as Nestle in Marysville (chocolate and coffee!), Honda (cars, planes and electronics!), the Grange Audubon Insurance Center, and visits to multiple Columbus area colleges.

Here is information about the program:

The Community Corner
- Our next scheduled Club Day is Friday, January 27th. Club assignments for students will come out closer to the 27th.
- As we start our Level Up initiative, our academic teams (Team A, Team B, etc.) will be competing each week to see which teams outperform the others in terms of iReady, ALEKS, and Membean completion. At a pep rally before state testing begins, one team in the 7th grade and one team in the 8th grade will be awarded a trophy for their efforts.
- We're getting close to the scheduling process for the 2023-24 school year. Be on the lookout for more information in the coming weeks for in-person engagement opportunities where you'll be able to interact with school staff and learn more about the scheduling process.
