LCIS FASO 1-22-21
Welcome to the “Friday Afternoon Shout Out”! We thought it might be more helpful to families to read our school communication at the beginning of the weekend rather than at the end. We hope you find this change useful!
We had such a nice week at LCIS. One highlight was listening to some of our third grade students read their personalized I Have A Dream poem over the morning announcements. Every morning we began our day with words of inspiration from some of our youngest, and wisest, scholars. Another highlight was celebrating Hawaiian Day for our Panther Pride Day. Thank you to our specials team for organizing this for us!
Homework continues this weekend! All homework assignments for LCIS students will come home at the end of the week. Sixth grade students will receive their homework electronically through Google Classroom, but all other students will receive a paper packet. Please encourage your child to set aside time over the weekend to work on these assignments.
4th grade students are working hard on their math facts by using playing cards. They always make sure to have clean hands and to stay socially distanced from one another!
5th Grade students in Mrs. Martin’s virtual class visited CMC to learn about avalanche safety as part of their Natural Disasters Unit.
Before launching their next English Language Arts module, sixth graders learned how to use notice and note signposts in fictional texts. For example, an “Aha Moment” is when a character realizes something, and usually that realization changes things for the character in an important way. Students chose a book that they will read during Project Dream time and for weekend homework. They will be writing four-paragraph letters to their teachers about these books every two weeks, and their letters will include the skills of summarizing, making text connections, and analyzing signposts.
Lake County Public Library has begun their Winter Reading Challenge. Please contact them to sign up. Read books and win prizes!
LCIS Sports have begun! The girls’ basketball team started practicing this week and they have 2 games scheduled for their short (4 week) season. We will not be able to have spectators at the games this year, but we are planning to stream them so that families can still enjoy watching their children play. The boys’ team has started practicing, too, but only on Thursdays from 6-7:30 at the high school. Their season will officially begin on February 16th when they begin practicing every day from 4-6 in the LCIS Gym . Go Panthers!
Our Habit of a Learner focus for January is Craftsmanship. Our character targets for craftsmanship are:
- I reflect on and revise my work by accepting feedback.
- My work is beautiful, done with care, and I pay attention to detail.
Reading is Awesome!
The School Based Health Center is a great resource for our students, family and staff! Please call them to take advantage of these awesome and convenient services at 719-486-6981.
