SEPTEMBER 14, 2022 - NEWSLETTER
Dear Lighthouse families,
In this second week, we have gotten back into the groove of school. Students are making connections with friends, developing learning plans with their advisors, and setting daily goals. We continue to build our strong community to support learning this year.
Reminders and Updates:
- Review and sign – Student Expectations for Behavior and Attendance Agreement: If you haven’t already, please prioritize reviewing our student expectations for behavior and attendance. We’re asking every family to review and sign these agreements. These are available in Campus with instructions in the newsletter.
- After School Activities: We are excited to team up with Westwood Middle School once again for after school activities for our middle school students. Here is a link to classes that are currently open for registration. If you are interested in having your child participate in programming, bus transportation to Westwood will be available.
It continues to feel great to be back in school! Please don’t hesitate to reach out with any questions or ideas. Your voice is valued, and your input is necessary to help us have the best year ever! Have a great week!

First Weeks Focus
The “knowing each student by name” part of our district’s vision has been on full display across schools, grade levels and classrooms in these first days of school. First graders made name tags that could hold a pencil, stand on their own, and, of course, had their names. Fifth graders were making iMovies about the “top 5 things to know about me.” High school classes were playing name games.
These first moments, days and weeks of school set the tone for the year to come. After two years of disrupted, pandemic learning, concern for academic growth and emotional and mental health is top of mind for parents and educators. That’s why even more intentional efforts to build relationships and create community are a top priority as a new year of learning begins.
Read the full story of our first weeks focus.
Creativity Challenge Day
Ms. Tison-Povis engaged students with some interesting activities for Creativity Challenge Day.
Lighthouse School students had fun trying to beat a world record for the number of sticky notes put on your face in one minute!
Next Monday, all students will bring home information about our Back a Bus fundraiser. Students will raise funds until Thursday, September 29 for field trip buses, as well as other PTO supported activities like conference meals for Lighthouse staff and the end of year celebration. Thank you in advance for your support!!
Our first PTO meeting of the year is next Thursday, September 22 at 6:30 p.m. at Lighthouse. Hope to see you there, all parents welcome!
