LCIS FASO 1-29-21
Hello LCIS Families,
Thank you so much for your patience and flexibility as we continue to navigate education during a pandemic. We are eternally grateful that we live and work in a community that is supportive of the health and safety precautions taken at LCIS. We were reminded of this reality when some of our staff, students and their families were affected by COVID-19 this week. We will all be working through challenges together this week to allow learning to continue in person and remotely. Please know that we are here to support all of you and will continue to communicate with you as necessary. Please reach out to the school at 719-486-6830 if you have questions or concerns.
This week the following classes will be learning remotely: Aly Beery, Aaron Barnett and Katrina Hanger. Those students who are quarantined have received a phone call and an e-mail from the administration. The B-cohorts will log into class at 8am and the A-cohorts will log in at 12pm. All remote students will be using the Google Meets link which can be found at the top of the Google Classroom page. These teachers will also be teaching remotely; Kevin Teesdale, Amanda Good, Will Martin, Michelle Cox , and Christie Sederquist. .
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.
3rd graders visited Camp Hale last week to get a taste of the winter training that our 10th Mountain Soldiers experienced during WWII. They enjoyed snowshoeing, cross country skiing, and a game of capture the flag. Thank you to the 3rd grade teaching team for organizing this amazing trip.
These 4th graders from Mr. Barnett’s class are working in groups to do research on animal defense mechanisms. They are working together to find out as many interesting facts about their animal as they can. They are doing research by exploring a variety of resources including searching on the internet, their assigned books, and class handouts.
The 5th Graders from Ms. Finck’s and Mrs. Brungardt’s classes walked up to CMC to learn about avalanches and visit the weather station. This field work ties in to the ELA Natural Disasters unit. So awesome to have such fabulous local resources!
Students in Ms. Forget’s 6th grade A cohort designed a structure to help save Dullis the Sloth in STEM class.
LCIS Sports have begun! The MS Girls bball team will have a home game on Wednesday, Feb. 3rd. vs. Summit County at 4 p.m. in the LCIS gym. We will not be able to have spectators at the games this year, but we are planning to stream the home games 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 LCIS . 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 book “Mr. Elligots Pool” by Dr. Seuss is a wonderful book in the tradition of all Seuss books. It is also the source of the song “It’s Possible” from the musical Seussical. Mrs Cairns will be reading – and most likely singing! – this book to her students in celebration of music and Dr. Seuss’s birthday on March 2nd.
