August 2019 Report
Lakeland Has Cardinal Pride Blitz
On August 20, Lakeland 4th Grade students and staff participated in a Cardinal Pride blitz. The blitz was a fun way to introduce, teach, model, and practice our Cardinal Pride - respectful, responsible, safe behaviors. 4th Grade students were led on a tour through various areas of the building. During their tour, students watched staff model cardinal pride behavior in these various areas. Students were then given the opportunity to practice them on their own. Our 5th Grade students reviewed and practiced our expectations during the opening week.
Lakeland Uses Opening Week to Practice Safety Procedures
During the opening week of school, Lakeland students and staff practiced two of the three required safety procedures. Lakeland had two fire drills, and a tornado drill. Lakeland will practice their first lockdown drill in early September. Staff needed more time to review ALICE strategies with students. Throughout the year staff and students will participate in five fire drills, two tornado drills, and three lockdown drills.
Lakeland Hosts Successful Open House
On August 14, Lakeland held an open house for our Lakeland families to meet their teacher and visit their classrooms prior to the first day of school. 68% of our 4th Grade families were represented and 66% of our 5th Grade families. 67% of Lakeland families visited during our open house.
Ms. Frantz celebrated outstanding WIDA scores with her students. These students have exited from the English Learner program. Lakeland had 21 students exit during the 2018-2019 school year. Way to go!!
