PLAYGROUND EQUIPMENT UPDATE:

In the upcoming weeks and months you may notice some play structures being removed from the playground at our school. An assessment was conducted on all the playgrounds in the district to determine the condition of our structures. This assessment called for some structures to be removed this spring. Please know, as part of the initial planning process for the 2013 bond, the District has set aside funds for playground equipment and updates for k-4 and 5-6 elementary buildings. To that end, a committee has been established to research new designs, equipment, and equity for the playgrounds in LPS. We look forward to sharing more information with you as this process gets underway.

DID YOU KNOW?

Standards-Based Grading communicates how students are performing on a set of clearly defined learning targets called standards. The purpose of SBG is to identify what a student knows, or is able to do, in relation to pre-established learning targets, as opposed to simply averaging grades/scores over the course of a grading period, which can mask what a student has learned, or not learned, in a specific course. Standards Based Grading reports what students know and are able to do within each content area.
