From the Desk of Principal Wickus
By now we have accomplished one month of school! We are off to a great start in Lyndon. Students have been busy getting back into the school routine fairly easily. Third and Fourth grade students had a great time painting the windows at Martha’s. All students enjoyed attending the home coming parade. This month we will have our fall fun week, October 27-31.
Our district focus continues to be on literacy at all levels. The STAR screener has given the teachers a lot of good data and information on each student. Our professional educators are using the all day professional development days to engage in rich conversations about Reading and Writing and the best practices surrounding instruction. This time is very well spent for our educators and we will continue to improve our achievement for all students through this work. We will be sharing this information with parents in the very near future.
Mr. Ingles and I will be traveling to Madison to receive the School of Recognition award for Lyndon on October 13, 2014. The school will get a plaque, and $500 for school-related purposes. Congratulations to the teachers and students for this award.
Lastly, the WKCE-Wisconsin Knowledge and Concepts Examination will be given to the fourth grade students this month. Please stay tuned for the dates of this test from Ms. Van Enkenvort.
I encourage all families to visit the Teaching and Learning website that is linked to our district web page to understand the comprehensive literacy plan that we are in the process of developing.
