Beating the Odds
Lakeview Staff Newsletter - May 10
With great appreciation
Thank you also to Mrs. Swanson, Mrs. Clausen, and Mrs. Ahler for their work to celebrate all of you. We are indeed appreciative of our parents in leadership positions and the many ways they contribute.
Several short items
• We have a new 5th grade teacher! Her name is Jessica Smith. Jessica has taught for approximately seven years, the last five in the Fontana school district. You may have a chance to meet Jessica before the end of the school year.
• Tech MiniLab Day - This past Monday, the 3rd through 5th grade teachers participated in 90-minute PD sessions with Tammy. The focus of the sessions was making technology part of the routine to engage students, especially through features built into Google Classroom. The article that was used that day is a great reflection on the SAMR model, which guides our thinking about tech integration in the classroom (link here). Thank you, Tammy, and our teachers for thinking deeply about this.
