Positive Calls

We are recognizing the positive achievements of our students. The goals of this system are to: 1) recognize students who are doing positive things; 2) strengthen teacher-student relationships; 3) strengthen peer-peer relationships; and 4) reduce negative behaviors; resulting in a stronger and more positive culture and climate in our school.

The process is simple. When a teacher catches a student performing one or more of the tasks on the Positive Behavior Referral, they will fill out the form and turn it into the office. Once a week, the students will be called down to the office to be recognized for their efforts, receive a small prize, and a positive phone call home. At the end of the month there will be a drawing from the referrals for the Student of the Month and the Teacher of the Month who will receive a gift card and have their photos posted on our social media sites.

Thank you for all your support in ensuring our students have a positive experience at Lane Intermediate School!

Principal Message

Dear Lane Families,

Welcome back. I hope you had a great holiday break and found time to relax and enjoy family and friends.

The end of the first semester is Jan. 18. Report cards assessing student progress will be posted and you can view your child's progress at any point in the semester via Skyward. Please contact your child's teacher if you have any questions.

Cold and flu season is here. The health and well-being of our students and staff is a top priority. Please do not send your child to school if they've had a fever, vomited or had diarrhea in the past 24 hours. Your assistance is appreciated by all.

Have a great weekend!



Holocaust Museum

Seventh grade students had a powerful deeper learning experience at the Skokie, Illinois Holocaust Museum this past Thursday. This is the second largest Holocaust museum in the country with over 500 artifacts, documents, and photographs on display, as well as a 20th century German rail car of the type used during the Holocaust. Students used critical thinking and problem solving skills to interact with primary and secondary sources through the use of film, interactive text and graphics, diaries, letters, newspapers, and the first-person testimony of a survivor. The teachers are proud of how the students represented Lane and the learning experiences that they took back with them.
