Principal's Message

We have had a great start to the second semester and look forward to another busy month!

March News and Notes

As the end of the quarter 3 draws near, please encourage your Child to reach out to her/his teacher should they have any questions about assignments, missing work, etc. It is important for them to advocate and receive any support they may need as we near the last quarter of this school year. Remember that Rocket House, our after school academic support program, is available after school in the Library. Rocket House is available on Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. 

Focus: LNE continues to have a focus on Instruction, Culture for Learning and Equity. R.I.S.E. Respect, Inclusive, Safe and Engaged

Research shows that re-teaching and reviewing school-wide/classroom expectations creates predictable adult behavior across all settings, providing students with a sense of security. Providing this structure reduces stress and reminds students that it is “business as usual.” This decreases the likelihood of problem behavior.

School Improvement Focus

Our continued areas of focus for the 2023-2024 school year continues to be: Effective Instruction, Culture for Learning and Equity. (See visual below). Our Focus aligns nicely with the District Board Goals: *(That visual is also below.)

  • Increasing the graduation rate
  • Reduce suspensions
  • Reduce disproportionality among all students who have taken at least 1 honors course
  • Increase hiring staff from diverse backgrounds.
