    CCS Elementary Buildings Have New Year's Blast off Contest

    The Coldwater Elementary buildings launched a "New Year's Blast Off" Student Usage competition for our three elementary schools.  The contests ran from January 4-31.

    • 50 students with the highest usage were entered into a raffle to win one Amazon Fire Tablet.
      • The list of students will be posted on our website to recognize high usage.
      • There were two competitions: one for Imagine Math and one for Imagine Language & Literacy, so a student had the chance to enter the raffle to win twice. Again, this contest was just for our CCS schools!
    • 10 classrooms with the highest student usage were entered into a raffle for two $50 Amazon gift cards to support student learning.
    • The school with the highest average building usage during the month of January won a $100 Amazon gift card to support student learning.

    WIDA Testing

    Michigan administers WIDA assessments to Kindergarten through 12th Grade students who have been identified as English learners. The assessments are given annually to monitor students' progress in acquiring academic English. Lakeland is hoping to conclude testing this year by February 26.
