Dear Little Lake Families:
Welcome to all of our Little Lake students and families to the 2018-19 school year. We look forward to collaborating with you in providing your children with the best education possible. Through the summer, many of our teachers have used the break to gain training in various disciplines. Parent volunteers have completed work around the school and our custodians have worked hard cleaning up the school and getting it ready for another year. Our teachers have been busy in training to support the district’s new Language Arts Curriculum Adoption, Benchmark Advance. We look forward to making great strides with our students in reading and writing. This year will be our second using Eureka to support our math instruction.
At Little Lake, we are committed to making our school a nurturing, warm, encouraging place for learning. We will continue use Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) to support student behavior. We will be adding Restorative Practices to help our community heal when behavior goes astray. In addition, we are very excited to implement Playworks www.playworks.org to help make our recess time an even more engaging and positive time for recreation.
As always, I want you to remember that this is your school. I see families as key partners in education and it my hope that you will have a large role at Little Lake.
At Little Lake, we welcome and need your involvement. We believe that education is a collaboration between the family and the educator. We cherish your support and want to know how we can support you. Little Lake is one family tree with strong roots and many branches. Thank you for all you have done for your children. I look forward to meeting you.
Principal Little Lake Elementary School
