Happy Mother's Day!
Jill laughed out loud when she saw this commercial. She said it was her life as a mother in a vignette. Like it says at the end "Every day [you] care."
Here is what I will be sharing:
- It will give us good information
- While we had a few glitches, online testing was great. Our teachers handled it wonderfully and our APs and support staff planned it well.
- Our kids prefer online testing (see below).

Don't forget, it can be the highlight of a child's day to talk to a LCES adult.

Dear Mr. Skelton,
I just had to write and tell you about what I witnessed Thursday morning after Kindergarten registration. We were walking downstairs near the foyer area between the 1st & 2nd grade halls and there were several classes moving about.
First thing I noticed: how quiet everyone was!
Then, several boys (I believe 2nd graders based on their height) quietly said to Foster, my 5 year old, "Are you here for registration?" He nodded yes and then I heard them say, "You're going to love it here!" "You will have a lot of fun!" "You're going to do great." WOW!
I was just beyond impressed with their genuine kindness toward a total stranger! I was nearly brought to tears. Please let your staff know just how very thankful we are to be a part of such a wonderful school community.

I recently gave the first side of the 3rd grade EIP rubric to A.D. She has been in EIP with Mrs. Gadd since the fall. After I completed the first four items on the rubric, Avery scored a 12, so I stopped. She was going to be at a 14 or higher, so I believe the small group additional instruction was hugely beneficial for Avery.
I am so happy to see the wonderful progress A. made this year! Mrs. Gadd - you are awesome! I am so glad you will be a member of our 1st grade team next year and I will be the recipient of your handiwork the next year!
Thank you so much for the Tinker Crate! We planted the seeds together and made an irrigation system. They check each morning to see the growth of the different seeds/plants! This was taken last week and the plants are much larger now.
I agree that it's not something that would have worked in the media center, but we sure enjoyed it.
Look how far we've come!
School Goals to support our LSPI
Collaborative Planning Goals
- Collaboratively plan lessons
- Use data/student work to plan
- Deconstruct the standards
- Class websites should be linked through eCLASS.
- Classwork/Homework assigned weekly through eCLASS (not 'extra' work).
- Use discussion boards at least 1x for Language Arts and 1x for Math each Semester.
