LCIS Friday Afternoon Shout Out 9-9-22
Hello LCIS Families!
Ms. Good and the LCIS students have been preparing their Andy Goldsworthy projects for the upcoming Outdoor Art Show. This event will take place on September 27th beginning at 5:30 pm on the LCIS playground. We will begin with some music and hot chocolate before students and families take a walk into the forest to view student artwork. Following the Forest Gallery Walk, you and your child are invited to visit classrooms and chat with teachers for the Open House portion of the evening. We’re excited to see you all there!
LCIS Attendance: After riding a strong wave of attendance hovering at the 95% range our attendance took a big hit on Friday, 9/9/22 and we only had 83% of our students in school. When students miss school, they miss their daily lessons and this can be hard for them! Please do everything you can to help get your child to school every day that we’re in session throughout the year. *Remember: when there is no school on Monday due to a holiday, we always have school on that Friday. Luckily this is the only Friday school this semester. However, in the spring this will happen four times.
LCSD has Family Connectors! These wonderful ladies provide support to the instructional program by enlisting parental involvement in students’ educational programs. They work with parents and students in identifying and achieving goals; accessing support services; and facilitating positive parent, school and student relationships. The connector/liaison works to bridge the communication between school and home . Our Family Connector/Liaison can help you: ● Facilitate parent-school communication; ● Facilitate community agency referrals; ● Encourage parent involvement in the school; ● Foster trust between parents and the educational community ● Foster higher academic achievement through collaboration with school personnel. The primary role of the Family Connector/Liaison is to empower parents to become active participants in the education of their children. There is a flier below with a photo, short biography and contact information for each of our connectors. Please know that you can call the school office or the family connector for any and all questions you may have!

If your student (6-12th grade) wants to attend a sporting event at LCIS, you must either attend the event with them, or you must call Alison Sprague at 719-486-6954 to get them on the Event Attendee List. Students in grades K-5 may attend athletic events at LCIS in the company of a parent or guardian. Students whose names are not on the Event Attendee List will be turned away at the door and will need to find a way home. RSVP’s must be called in to Alison before 2:30 pm the day of the event, or by 2:30 pm on Thursday if the event is on Friday or Saturday. Parents, thank you for your help on this. We are trying to encourage students to be positively engaged at these events, and we appreciate your partnership in that effort.
LET’S GO PANTHERS!!
Amy Peters, Athletic/Activities Director
6th Grade: Math–continuing to work on ratios: ratio tables, equivalent ratios, tape diagrams, double tape diagrams, and solving problems comparing ratio tables
ELA–writing by focusing on a moment in time and really pulling out the details (senses, dialogue, physical action) to expand the writing
Social Studies–world deserts focused on Australia and the Outback
Ms. Campbell’s crew was able to attend Colorado Outward Bound this week. They were the last 6th grade group to go to COBS, and the weather was gorgeous! We appreciate the amount of work and organization that these events required – we are extremely grateful for the community partnerships with both GOL! (Get Outdoors Leadville!) and COBS. All of our 6th graders will all have wonderful memories that last a lifetime!
So many exciting events happen in our community every month – too many for us to list on this communication! Please click this link to access the Community Calendar for upcoming events.
