Preparing for our Future

Happy Friday!

Wow, what a week! We are finished with MAP testing for the year. The students worked very hard over the course of the last three weeks and I'm excited to see the results.

Additionally, as we reach the last few weeks of the school year, I'm encouraging the kiddos to continue to work hard and stay focused on our job at school. It can be difficult, I know, but trying to stick to a consistent schedule at home could definitely help with our work at school.

May 9 is a BIG day at Line Creek. It’s the day we’ll have a visit from a review team at Franklin Covey. They will spend the whole day with us interviewing students, parents and teachers about the Leader in Me implementation at Line Creek, doing classroom visits and touring the building looking for evidence that we are fully implementing LIM at Line Creek. Two to four weeks after their visit, they’ll provide us with feedback related to LIM and their visit. If their feedback is favorable and we meet the requirements to qualify, they will deem us a “Leader in Me Lighthouse School”. Receiving this recognition and reaching this milestone is a goal of ours. You can help by having your child wear their leadership shirt or another LC t-shirt to school on May 9 and preparing your child to answer questions about their personal goals and the process they go through when setting and tracking goals. Take some time over the next week to have your child share their personal website with you and provide feedback about the work they've done. We appreciate your help!

This week we:

  • Took the Science MAP Assessments
  • Learned about the important documents of US History
  • Wrapped up Line Plots and started working on 6th Grade Math topics.
  • Began brainstorming ideas for our final writing piece

***Please continue to be sure laptops are getting charged each night at home. It's hard for students to keep up with their work during the day when computers aren't fully charged.

Leader in Me Parent Survey

As a requirement of the Leader in Me grant we received, we’re asked to collect parent feedback. Please take a few moments to complete the survey by clicking the link:

To begin the survey, click the “NEXT” button.

We greatly appreciate your feedback. Your responses will be used to continue to build leaders in our Line Creek community. Thank you!

If ever you need me, I'll be there...

It is my honor each morning to arrive at such a wonderful school and then be greeted by 23 smiling 5th grade faces. As the saying goes, it takes a village to raise a child and I couldn't agree more. We are team and I am excited to work with you as a family over the course of the year.
