Parent Advisory Council
Thank you to those who took part in our Spring Survey!
District Advisory Council -DAC meeting
PIC me! PIC me!
Stacey is the PIC at LMS. She continues to come up with creative ways to make a difference there. It was Stacey's idea to create the benchmark packets so that parents and students would know more about their academic progress. She also spends hours writing in each child's benchmark scores! She has put together family engagement activities such as STEAM night and Math breakout rooms to engage our families. She is a huge help to me and everyone around her!
Stacey and Amy work together to help our middle school family engagement programs be the best! If you want to be involved at the middle schools they would love to have you!
