This year Lake Marie School is excited to welcome two new teachers, Ms. Gardner teaching fifth grade and Ms. Thompson teaching third grade. They are both dedicated teachers who strive for academic excellence and have high expectations while having compassion in teaching their students.
We are also thrilled with class size reduction school wide! This helps all students to receive differentiated instruction more one-on-one attention from the teachers, and a challenging classroom environment. All classrooms are focusing on Common Core instructional strategies according to the California States Standards. Our goal is for our students to be competitive, problem solvers, value hard work, and completing tasks. Daily they are emphasis technology, which is integrated into all core subject areas. In the classroom, student are collaborating with their peers and challenged to justify their rational. We are preparing our students for college, the workforce, and beyond.
We are continuing the implementation of our OLWEUS program.
At Lake Marie we value all students, parents, and school staff as well as strive to build relationships, respect and take responsibility for our actions. Our goal is to have everyone feel welcomed, included and productive members of Lake Marie School. Weekly during morning announcement and at assemblies the entire school recites our 4 "anti-bullying" rules:
We will not bully others.
We will try and help students who are bullied.
We will try to include students who are left out.
If we know someone is being bullied, we will tell an adult at school and at home.
This year, all K-6 teachers throughout the district will be implementing the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in an effort to challenge our students and foster the development of critical thinkers, creative problem solvers and competitive 21st century learners. The teachers have undergone extensive training and we believe our students will benefit greatly from the deeper levels of thinking. This year our academic focus is educate our students utilizing the Common Core State Standards and to prepare them for the 21st Century. Please feel free to visit Mrs. Palomino in the front office if you have any questions about the Common Core State Standards.
