Email Update- October 31, 2017

Posted on: November 1, 2017
Message From The Superintendent-  
We hope that the start of the 2017-18 school year has been a great experience for you and your child(ren). Our staff worked hard over the summer months and during the first quarter to provide quality learning experiences for our students.

We believe in continuous improvement for all. Professional development for our teachers, administrators, and support staff is an important part of our success. It makes us better teachers, and in turn, makes our students better. In the past, we have scheduled one day per school year for professional development. That day this year was October 16. It was a productive day with our staff attending a variety of workshops, seminars, etc. designed to improve teaching.

In addition to October 16, our district has planned full-day professional development on:

Monday, January 29, 2018

Friday, March 23, 2018

Teachers will be preparing learning assignments for students to complete on these two days. There will be an expectation that the assignments are completed outside of school. Like in October, students will not report on these days. All staff will be here participating in professional learning opportunities. The district selected a Monday and Friday so that parents would have the opportunity for three-day weekends with their children.

We hope you support our desire to help teachers become better. I look forward to the innovative assignments that teachers will be designing for our students. If you have any questions, please contact your child’s school.

Career Center Field Trip-

On Tuesday, November 21st, from 11:30-1:15 pm, eighth grade students will visit the Warren County Career Center.  This is an important event for all LJHS 8th grade students.  As a junior at LHS, your child will be eligible to attend the Career Center if grades and credits are sufficient.  We feel it is important for all students to make educated choices and this tour will demonstrate to students the opportunities the Career Center offers. The Career Center will be providing our students transportation with Career Center buses and will return by the end of the school day. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact either guidance counselor:  Andrew King, at 934-5308 or Jessica Bacher, at 934-5307. Here is a link to the permission slip.
