LCIS Friday Afternoon Shout Out 9-30-22
Hello LCIS Families!
Thank you for joining us last week for our LCIS Outdoor Art Show and Open House! It was such a great turn out! We all enjoyed spending time with you and sharing what’s been happening so far this year in our classrooms. Shout out to Amanda Good, our art teacher, and Lynette Clemons, our music teacher for creating a beautiful outdoor art presentation. Shout out to GOL! For providing the delicious hot chocolate and an archery station.
This week students and staff at LCIS will participate in an Evacuation Drill. This practice is so we can learn the expectations and routines in case we are ever faced with a situation in which we had to evacuate the building. Please take this opportunity to talk with your child about safety at school and at home. A detailed letter about this drill has been emailed, but as always we welcome your thoughts and questions.
Please help your child remember their charged Chromebook every day. Students will be taking the STAR progress monitoring assessment the week of October 3rd and it is especially important that they have their device in their backpack every day charged up and ready. Thank you for your help!
Would you like an opportunity to learn more about LCIS? On Tuesday, October 11 from 6-7pm Cheryl Talbot, the LCIS Principal and Erin Dillon, the LCIS Assistant Principal are hosting a Parent-Principal Real Talk. During this time together we will review our school-wide work plan goals, daily schedule and curriculum, our positive behavior support system, Habits of Work and Learning (HOWL) point system and discipline matrix

The Event Attendee Lists at LCIS have been working really well to calm the atmosphere at our games and keep the focus on our athletic event. Thank you to all of you parents who have called your students in! We are now implementing this policy at LCHS events. Starting next week, students must either attend the event with an adult, or a parent must call Alison Sprague at 719-486-6954 to get them on the Event Attendee List. 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. We do ask that you call to add your student EACH TIME you want them to attend a sporting event.
LET’S GO PANTHERS!!
6th graders led the all school community meeting this week and showcased their overnight trip to COBS earlier this month.
In math, 6th graders are focusing on learning about unit rates and unit prices and applying the knowledge to solve real world problems. Ask your students what the better deal is–$12.99 for 3 pounds of carrots or $17.84 for 4 pounds of carrots?
In ELA, students are focusing on providing evidence from the text to support their claim or opinion. We are still working with the text, Boy, by Roald Dahl.
6th graders are working through the deserts of the world, this week learning about North and South American deserts like the Mojave.
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.
