From The Principal

Our fall semester seems to be whizzing by at a rapid pace! This Friday, our first round of Progress Reports will be sent out. Please see below for important information on how to access your child's progress report.

Our Big Kahuna fundraiser is now over. We will send out more information soon on the delivery date of everything that was ordered! It'll be soon!

Next week is LSRO's Anti-Bullying Week or Kindness Week! We are excited to focus on ways to be kind to each other and put a stop to bullying!

Thanks for your partnership with us! We value you!

Have a great weekend!

Progress Reports

Parents, this Friday progress reports will go out through the Parent Portal. We will not be sending home physical copies of your child's progress report this year, unless your child is failing one or more subjects. If your child is failing in any subject, your child's teacher will send home a paper copy of his/her progress report for you to look over and sign that you have seen it. All other progress reports will go out via our Parent Portal. Please look for a message from School Mint on how to access your child's progress report. Please contact your child's teacher if you have any questions!

Thanks!

Perfect Attendance Incentives

Life School Red Oak would like to encourage our students to be in attendance each day to make sure they can “Ready to Learn, Ready to Lead, Ready for Life.” We will hold a drawing at the end of each month for all students that have perfect attendance for that month. Students must have perfect attendance during the month, no absences, tardies, or early checkouts.There will be a prize for students that are in Kindergarten thru 3rd grade and a prize for students in 4th grade thru 6th grade. The prize winners will be announced during morning announcements and we will contact the parents/guardians to come by the office to pick up the prizes. Please see Pages 3-4 of the Student Handbook for the Attendance guidelines.

HUMILITY

When you are ready to lead, you have an interest in serving the interest of others regardless of your own personal gain. You value what others say, listen well, speak kindly, and show gratitude. You are able to forgive others, admit when you do not know something, show confidence, and recognize the strengths in others. By doing these things, you are using the leader attribute, humility.


This weeks I will statement: “I will show humility today by forgiving someone who has hurt my feelings.”

From the Counselor:

We will be showing kindness all over LSRO September 24-27 for Anti Bullying/Kindness Week. The Kindness Fairy will be visiting the campus this week to read to story about kindness and talk about the effects of bullying. Teachers will be taking the students to various stations on campus to participate in various acts of kindness. A scavenger hunt also went home for you and your family to do. Remember to use this hashtag so we can see all the kind things you will be doing at home and in the community: #LSROshowskindness.


Friday, Sept. 27th, the students may wear a SOLID WHITE shirt as a sign of peace.
