Hello LCIS Families!
Our Celebration of Learning is this week – Wednesday May 4TH!
LCIS is excited to announce that we will be hosting our first Celebration of Learning since before the start of the pandemic. This celebration will be held on May 4th from 6:00-7:15 pm. We will begin the evening with a community meeting in our gym where we will also honor the students of the month for the habit of perseverance. Following the community meeting, classrooms will be open and students will be sharing some of the work that they’ve engaged in this semester. We hope to see you there!
It’s Teacher Appreciation Week! with National Teacher Day on Tuesday, May 3. It’s a perfect time to show the educator in your child’s life how much you have appreciated their support over the past school year.
Enrollment for Rockies Rock 2022 is NOW OPEN!
Open enrollment will run until May 1st. We will notify you about your admission by May 6th! After May 6th, all enrollments will be first-come, first-served!
Please reach out to Tim Best with questions @719.293.0445 firstname.lastname@example.org
3rd grade students are learning about Leadville’s local government! We walked on the Mineral Belt trail, visited city hall, met the chief of police, the mayor, and a city council member. Students got to see inside a police car, which was a big hit. Students were able to ask these leaders questions and learn about how government agencies help each other and make our community a better place. Come to our Celebration of Learning to find out more!
4th grade students started a new and exciting ELA module all about the ratification of the 19th amendment! This module will use literature and informational texts to introduce students to gender and racial inequality issues in the US during the early part of the 21st century. 4th graders have begun reading “The Hope Chest” by Karen Schwabach. The main character, Violet, is a young girl determined to reunite with her older sister in New York City and quickly finds herself caught up in the fight for women’s suffrage.
5th grade students wrapped up Module 5 in Math and took their end of unit assessment on attributes of geometric shapes. In ELA, students learned about Public Service Announcements (PSA). Students looked at different models of PSAs to help plan their own PSA on how to stay safe during a natural disaster. We are proud of our students for finishing CMAS strong this week as they took their last round of CMAS testing in Science.
6th grade crews had the opportunity to go to COBS (Colorado Outward Bound School) for a day to participate in games, outdoor fun, leadership activities, and crew/relationship building initiatives. We also hiked and earned a delicious treat at the end of the day—s’mores! Students went home tired, dirty, and happy. This day trip was a preview to what we might expect when we attend COBS again in June for an overnight trip.
