Dear Parents and Guardians:
I cannot believe that we are quickly approaching Spring Break! Where has time gone? It seems like only yesterday we began this unique year of sailing unchartered waters! Because of you, we have been able to do what many school districts and states across this nation have been unable to do! We absolutely could NOT have done it without YOU!
Next week (March 8th through March 12) will bring about district benchmark assessment testing for our students in Grades K-4. These assessments will measure our students' growth this year, and they will serve as a guiding tool for instruction as well as for planning for the 2021 - 2022 school year. Please make sure students are well-rested and prepared to do their very best! Encourage them each morning before sending them our way, and remind them daily that WE BELIEVE in them! Both students and teachers alike have worked extremely hard this year in a most challenging pandemic, and I feel CONFIDENT they will RISE to the top on these assessments!
Following the district assessments, students in kindergarten, third and fourth grades will participate in MDE's statewide assessments. We will send information regarding these assessments and a testing calendar home with students as the testing season nears. Please continue to encourage your students to work hard to prepare for what lies ahead. TOGETHER, LES can EXCEED EXCELLENCE!
Again, I can't thank you enough for all that you've done to help us at LES. I genuinely love and appreciate each of you and what you do to help our staff, students and Lake Elementary School! As always, I am honored to serve each of you and your families, our school and our community, and I'm BEYOND BLESSED to be a small part of such a wonderful school family! If I can do anything to help you, please feel free to contact me anytime.
Thanks so much,
Mrs. Seale :)
