Good Afternoon Lead Families,
I hope everyone is enjoying this beautiful Sunday afternoon. Please see the information and updates for the coming week.
This week, students will continue conversations around "reflections". Students will discuss how we can continue learning, even while we are not present at school during the summer. Please ask your students about crew conversations that are happening. Crew begins each day at 7:45, so it is vital that your student is at school on time each day.
On this coming Friday, May 27th, we are going to use the K-2 related arts time to complete their field day activities since they were rained out on their day. On Friday, K-2 students can come dressed in their field day colors.
It's time to elect our new board members. Board Ballots will be sent home this week for each family to vote. Each family receives one vote per student. Please return your completed ballots to your student's teacher or the front office. The deadline to cast your votes is Friday, May 27 at 4:00pm.
SC Ready Field Test
Lead Academy students in grades 3-8 will be participating in a field test for SC Ready. Students will test on Monday, May 23. This state reading/writing test is somewhat like a practice test for the state department to 'field' questions and writing prompts to students for potential future test items. This field test will not count toward your child's state test scores.
Lead students in grades 4th-8th have the opportunity to participate in elective classes. Please fill out the attached form for all rising 4th-8th graders in preparation for electives for the 2022-2023 school year. In choosing, we always try to give students as many of their preferences but can't guarantee you will get all of your top choices.
6th-8th sign ups
Chromebooks for grades 3-8 will be collected this week.
Grades 3, 4, & 5 will be on Tuesday.
Grades 6, 7, & 8 will be on Wednesday.
Chromebooks should be fully charged and free of any stickers that are not Lead Academy identifying barcodes.
All students should return their assigned Chromebook, charger, and soft case.
Please continue to support our canned food drive. If the food comes in a box or can and has a long shelf life we can accept that donation!

Students may not use cell phones during the school day – they must be turned off and stored away. The cell phone will be confiscated and returned to a parent/guardian in the front office if used. If a parent/guardian reports that their student called them from a cell phone to come pick them up, the phone will be confiscated.
To listen, learn, & collaborate, any stakeholder wishing to snag some time with Mr. Baker can sign up for open office hours on any platform of your choosing by clicking the link. https://calendly.com/cubaker/meet
