February's Focus: KINDNESS & YOU MATTER

Monday, February 4, 2019 - 08:33

Hello Homebase Students and Families! 

As we head in to the month of February, our Homebase themes are “Kindness” and “You Matter!”

We continue to set the expectation that being friendly, generous and considerate in everything that we do and say contributes to a positive climate in our school community.  We encourage pleasant dispositions and care and concern for others as we learn together each day!  We consistently expect respectful and appropriate language, content and interactions at all times on behalf of everyone, not only in person but over technological devices and social media as well.  Everyone deserves to be respected and experience kindness in and out of the school environment.  As a Lake staff, we need your assistance with the monitoring the use of technology appropriately, as well as holding high expectations of respect and kindness for everyone

As we continue to service and support all of our students academically and socially each day, we also attempt to transition them in to a level of personal accountability in regard to their verbal interactions with their peers.  Disrespect towards others in any form is not tolerated at Lake Middle School and consequences for disrespect are in place.  Please encourage your student to continue building skills and practice kindness in all that they do and say as they strive to positively finish out this current school year!  

Please also note that in the weeks ahead, students will spend a great deal of time reflecting on their current achievement and setting new academic and social goals to finish out the current school year.  They will begin the preparation process for our Spring Student-Led Conferences which are scheduled for the evenings of March 26th and 28th.  More information will be shared at a later date – but mark your calendars!

Finally, a reminder that our building-wide PTA Taco Bingo Night Event is scheduled for Thursday, February 21st.  We hope you and your family can attend.  It is a great school event for everyone of all ages!  (We are still collecting items for our class donated basket for the raffle drawings.  Any donations are much appreciated!)

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me at any time!

 

Sincerely,

Lake Middle School - Homebase Teachers
