Dear Little Lake Lions,
Closing 2016 and Welcoming 2017,
It is hard to believe that we are already half way through the school year. The staff and students have been so busy that the time has flown by.
First semester we took on the challenge of online re-registration in August and welcomed back our staff and students for another fantastic school year. In September, technology deliveries allowed our students in grades 2-5 to be 1:1 with Chromebook Devices and we graduated some families from our PIQE Leadership Academy, We hosted the first Annual Monster Ball in October, students marched in the Literary Storybook Costume Parade on Halloween, and the school and community Participated in Red Ribbon Week to show their commitment to making healthy life choices. In November, the Wall of Honor went up and the Veterans Day Celebration took place to honor our Active Duty Military, Veterans, and First Responders. December arrived with magic in the air as students took pictures with Santa, had breakfast with Santa, shopped for their loved ones at our Santa Secret Shop, made Gingerbread Houses, sang, played and danced at the Holiday Pageant, and took a ride on the Polar Express.
In January, our library will be hosting a Maker's Space to allow students to explore science, technology, arts, and mathematics. A STEAM Club will also be available for students in grades 3, 4, and 5. We are excited about the possibility of watching this new "seed" grow over the coming weeks and months.
Little Lake welcomes a new music teacher, Mr. Hansen. Mr. Hansen provides chorus and band to students in grades 4 and 5, as well as music exploration for all students. He also offers a before school club for students who would like to play the recorder on Wednesday and Thursday mornings from 7:20-7:40 and a ukulele club on Wednesday and Thursday afternoon from 2:12 - 2:40. Please contact Mr. Hansen if you would like to get more information.
Our PBIS Team is doing a fabulous job of working with the staff and students to make sure that behavioral expectations are clear and social skills are practiced as we continue to move about our campus Being Respectful, Being Responsible, and Being Safe.
As we move forward into this school year, please know that I am humbled by the opportunity to serve the Little Lake Community. We have an outstanding and committed staff ready and willing to serve your AMAZING students. I challenge you to walk with us in our quest to make your child's educational experience the best that it can be. I welcome your input and hope to have the opportunity to meet each and every one of you during the course of the coming year.
