District Headlines & Features
Greetings Star Lake Families,
Welcome back to school! I hope your family had some time during spring break to relax, or go on an adventure, and do something that you all enjoy! I flew to New Mexico to visit with my daughter and go wedding dress shopping with her, what a fun time we had!
It is sure exciting to have students in the building here at Star Lake every day! I love seeing their faces (well at least their eyes!) and hearing the great conversations and learning going on in their classrooms. Our students who have remained remote are working hard every day as well, and I appreciate the focused attention they give during zoom sessions. Working independently at home requires discipline and persistence; keep up the great work!
We are looking forward to talking with families and scholars at our Scholar-Led Conferences on April 29th and 30th. Be watching for an important email coming from your child’s teacher that includes directions to sign up for a zoom conference. This is a great time to check in on student progress, celebrate growth, and for our students who have changed teachers, a time to get better acquainted. For the past three years, Star Lake has had 98-100% of our families join us for scholar-led conferences. Thank you for your commitment to this important conversation.
On May 13th, at 6:00pm, we also have our annual School Board Recognition event. This year Star Lake will recognize ten students as “super attenders.” These students not only have perfect attendance, but they each demonstrate leadership in their classrooms. In addition, we are recognizing ten students for making accelerated growth on iReady math and reading my path lessons. These ten students passed a combined total of 1,396 lessons and they are still going! Please see the list of student names included in this newsletter. And, if your child is on the list, be watching for an invitation coming soon. I wish we could recognize every Star Lake student for the great work they are doing, but we are limited.
It is hard to believe that we only have ten weeks of school left! I am excited about the learning and growth still yet to come this spring! Enjoy the sunshine!
