Pre-K and Kindergarten Round-Up

Important things to remember:

  • There is no reason for parents to attend either Round-Up if their child is already enrolled in LCISD. Therefore, current Pre-K parents do not need to attend.
  • We would like for Round-Ups to be parent-only events since there will not be anything fun for your children to do here - just paperwork!
  • More Round-Up details are below on the flyers...

Positive Approach to Student Success

The PASS program is designed to serve students whose behavior interferes with educational progress, and students that have not responded to previously implemented interventions.

PASS students benefit from:

  • Social Learning experiences with their typically developing peers

  • Increased access to the general education curriculum

  • Individualized behavior support, integrating research-based practices and interventions

Flashback Friday

Each month, students will participate in a day filled with engaging, quick review/pre-teach of concepts that data shows to be difficult for students to master. The day will allow students to rotate through many teachers so they are hearing and learning from other educators. Contents covered: math, reading, writing, science.

Please watch the video below to see what our amazing teachers have to say about the benefits of Flashback Friday, and to see it in action!
