This week in Crew, students will continue discussing the topic Synergy. Synergy is working together to make the world great. This week, students will learn how to optimize their strengths. Please ask your students about crew conversations that are happening each day beginning at 7:45, so it is vital that your student is at school on time.
Related Arts Showcase
Our related arts team will present the related arts showcase Thursday, April 6th, beginning at 5:00 pm. Students will present demonstrations from each related arts class (music, art, PE, Spanish, STEM).
The Scholastic Book Fair is this week, with family shopping hours on Thursday evening. Visit our Book Fair homepage to learn more and get started with eWallet and online shopping, or sign up to volunteer: https://www.scholastic.com/bf/leadacademysc
Our 7th-grade students are studying the impact of plastic pollution for their expedition. They have decided to respond to their learning by trying to decrease the amount of disposable cups and water bottles we use at school by installing water bottle refill fountains in each hallway. To do this, they need to raise $4,000. Wednesday is our monthly $1 Dress Down. Any student that donates $5 or more to this cause will get a bracelet to wear Wednesday and Thursday, and they can dress down on both days, while contributing to this great cause!
This past Friday, students brought home a letter for parents containing instructions on completing the 2023 School Climate Survey. Kindergarten and Grade 1 will bring home the letter on Monday. The Department of Education issues this survey to measure perceptions of home & school relations, learning environment, and social & physical environment. Parents can access the survey by scanning the QR code on the instruction sheet, logging into their Parent PowerSchool Account, and clicking on Forms. Please note the QR code is specific to each student, so please only use the QR code that your child brings home. Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
with any questions.
