Weekly Update for LCMS Staff

By Tami Gunset

Staff,

I want to THANK YOU for a smooth week back to begin a NEW year. I truly appreciate your hard work and your dedication to our students. I hope that you enjoyed your jeans week last week, as we had lots of snow/wet around our campus. I hope that you were able to stay warm this weekend as it was pretty cold. I am looking forward to this week and the warmer temperatures.


We have a busy week with Science Fair as we have 165 or so competing. I am looking forward to seeing the students hard work pay off as we will have 21 students advance. If you have the opportunity to come out and see the projects you may do so Friday, January 15 from 5pm-6:30pm.


Lesson Plans - these should of been completed by Thursday, if you have not completed those you need to have them completed by 4pm on Monday. If you are having trouble or you feel the Forethought lesson planning is too much, please know if you have these written out you can upload them into Forethought. Please let me know if you have any questions.


T-TESS Observations will begin this week. If you are on the T-TESS rotation for this year, I am needing you to plan on setting up a date with either Mr. Saffel or myself and get this date scheduled this week. Please take care of this as soon as possible.

* Due to no scheduled Staff Meeting we will department meetings. Please plan accordingly to attend the department meeting. I will need you to follow the instructions (link below) and print out your Quintile Reports for your 3rd Six Weeks Unit Assessments. As a department we will look at SE's and the quintile reports. These reports will be very handy and helpful as you develop your small groups for instruction and re-teach opportunities.

2016-2017 Schedule Request for 8th graders (Freshman Schedule for LCHS)

8th graders will go to the PAC on Monday, January 25 at 9am to meet with the high school counselor about their high school schedule request. At this time the counselors will cover the course and how to go online and request classes. They will receive materials at this time to begin requesting courses for their freshman year.


That evening, January 25, they will hold a parent informational meeting about requesting courses and the different tracks pretaining to House Bill 5. I would highly encourage each parent to attend as they will cover questions you will have about your child's freshman schedule.


Schedule request will need to be entered in to Career Cruising by January 29. This is something that you and your child should complete at home once you have received all the information. Please let me know if you have any questions.
