Attached below is an informative HCS document on the new State of Michigan 3rd Grade Reading Law and a number of other helpful links, resources, and suggestions. As always, please contact Principal Howerton with any questions or concerns. Thank you!
I've attached a reference sheet that has much of the language and training themes that we use with students at school to work on building our courage and discipline muscles with Sensei Larioza! Use this language at home with your child and ask them how they are working to be a "Type One" person and doing a little bit more than anyone expects EVERYDAY!
LES Student-run Credit Union is open every Thursday!
We're so excited about the second year with our student-run LOC Federal Credit Union at Lakes! Thank you so much to Ms. Stephanie Cole from LOC who is running this wonderful program! We have a wonderful new team of 4th graders who are working as team members at the credit union this year! You and/or your child can open an account at anytime.
I've attached a copy of our attendance protocol letter that I sent out with our back to school letters last August. The entire Hartland district is continuing to make a greater focused and committed effort to work with our parents and community to combat chronic student absenteeism. Chronic absenteeism is defined as a student missing 15 days per year (excused or unexcused) or 10% of school days (approximately 18 days). When I speak about absenteeism, I also include in that excessive tardies (arriving late/leaving early). Lake Elementary was able to reduce the number of students chronically absent from 15% during the 2016-17 school year to only 9% during the 2017-18 school year! We hope to lower that number even more for the upcoming year! Please read the attachment which outlines the steps our district is taking to help curb chronic absenteeism. Please contact Principal Howerton with any questions or concerns.
