LIS Tiger Talk
August 19, 2022
The start to a new school year can stir up so many emotions for students and families. The realization that our students are growing up too fast. The excitement of seeing friends and meeting new ones. Meeting new teachers, learning a new campus, and exploring new opportunities. It is my sincere hope that each of your students had a positive start to their school year.
Our office team has been out and about meeting students in the lunchroom, recess, hallway transitions, arrival and dismissal. We are making our rounds to each team to do Tiger Up Talks with all students to discuss our LIS Core Values: Respect, Responsibility and Care.
Please reach out to our staff if you have any questions.
Hope to see some of you at Youth Football Night tonight. I'll be in the dunking booth from 7:00-7:20. Enjoy your weekend and Go Tigers!

Hi LIS families! My name is Sarah Browning and I am teaching 5th grade ELA and SS. This will be my 7th year teaching. I graduated with my undergraduate degree from Muskingum University where I was a softball college athlete. This past spring I graduated with my Master’s degree from Miami University. In my free time I enjoy traveling, spending time outside hiking, reading a good book, watching movies and spending time with friends and family. I am so excited to get to meet the members of this community and be a part of the Loveland family! Go Tigers!
My name is Christy Occhipinti. I am a new paraprofessional at Loveland Intermediate School. I am a proud mom of four Loveland Tigers students and two golden doodles. I’ve had the fortune to experience living in some of the most beautiful parts of our country. I am excited to work here and to be able to share some of those experiences with my students and fellow staff. I look forward to a wonderful year!
Mary joins LMS and LIS as the new receptionist and will be greeting students and visitors at our main entrance each day. Mary and her husband have five sons and enjoy spending time at their cabin in Tennesse where they love to hike. In her spare time, Mary also enjoys baking.
