Welcome to our NEW webpage!
This summer, Lakin USD #215 changed our website host. We moved away from SOCS and joined with Gabbart Communications to create, manage, and host our web content. We are excited about the possibilities this brings to our district, staff, students, and our website visitors. All websites are a work in progress, and this one definitely will be as the switch is still occurring; however, we will be unveiling new features as we work our way through the 2015-2016 school year.
One feature that is ready to go is the NEW calendar. All district events are posted on the "district calendar", which is located in the left sidebar on the homepage, and all "district" pages. The individual buildings have their own calendars on their pages throughout the site, as well as athletics/activities have their own calendar as well. You can "subscribe" to any or all of these calendars if you would like. They will sync to your device calendars, and you will have all our activities on your calendar as well. There is a tutorial video explaining how to subscribe to the calendar. To view the video, simply click the double arrow in the bottom right hand corner of the sidebar calendar. When the full page calendar opens, simply click the subscribe button in the middle of the screen, and the video tutorial page will load.
News from Mrs. Miller’s 2nd Grade Classroom
Welcome to the 2015-2016 school year. School is off to a great start and all of my little pirates “Arrrgh Ready for a Super Year.” Second grade is a very fun and exciting place to be. We have already started working on our math facts and your child should be practicing those at home. My students are already working their way towards a yummy ice cream cone if they learn all of their addition facts by December. During math class we have been working on adding and subtracting numbers to 20 using number bonds and the “Make Ten” strategy. The students use the educational math fact fluency website (Reflex) every day to increase his/her math fact fluency.
SFA has not started yet but we have been working on GAT (Getting Along Together). The students are learning how to manage their feelings, focus during class, and listen to the speaker. SFA will start September 8th. Your child will be bringing home his/her Read &Respond sheet every night. Remember your child needs to read for 20 minutes and then write two sentences about what they read. During Social Studies, the second graders have been learning how to read a map using directions. They also have worked on designing their own treasure maps. In science, we did an experiment with baking soda and vinegar. It was a lot of fun and the kids had an “explosive time.”
As you can see, our school year is off to great start. Please feel free to “Come Aboard our Ship” anytime to see all of the wonderful things that are happening at LGS.
