Mission & Vision Statements:
Our vision is to ensure that students SOAR to the highest level of success because "college and career readiness" begins with a strong academic foundation.
Lyle's Loving Logic
"You're going to make a difference. A lot of times it won't be huge, it won't be visible even. But it will matter just the same. Don't do it for praise or money, that's what I want to tell you. Do it because it needs to be done. Do it to make your world better."
-Commissioner James Gordon, Gotham
"Shout out to Lisa for constantly trying to get us involved in healthy activities, and to Angel for initiating and setting up a work out opportunity at the school."
"I would like to thank Miss. Hampton for always putting my kiddos on the bus when I am at parent pick up!!"
- Jennifer Davis
"A BIG thank you to every one who has been helping a parent pick-up when we are short handed. Your help is appreciated!"
"Shout out to Sylvia Johnson for being the only 5th grade teacher at school on Thursday (1/14) and not once complaining about it. She was extremely positive in her reflection of the day when her team returned Friday."
Shoutout to our Kindergarten teachers from Mrs. Bagwell! She was very complimentary of our K teachers, and was impressed with student behavior and engagement!
2. iPads - Beginning this week, the iPads that are available for individual checkout will be stored in the computer lab (on the counter). This will make it easier to locate the devices when they are needed for progress monitoring. Thank you to Mrs. Rolan for donating a rack for organizing the iPads. :-)
3. Title I Orders - Please turn in the Title I order for your grade level as soon as possible. Please remember that all items ordered must be directly related to math or reading/language. Orders are due no later than the 28th of January.
4. Tech Integration- All K-2 teachers must schedule a time for an integrated technology lesson with Ms. Bagwell (until Jan. 22nd).

Quizizz (quizizz.com) – I’ve used and loved Kahoot! for a while (and still do), but I like Quizizz’s take on multiplayer gamified assessment. You can create multiple-choice questions (or choose a set of questions from Quizizz) and give students the game code so they can join. Students work at their own pace through questions and watch themselves move up and down the leaderboard as they answer questions. You can also use Quizziz for homework assignments or as an interactive study guide! Your students will love it and you will, too!
