Parent/Teacher Spring Conferences Based on the partnership that is necessary for each student's success, it is an expectation of the school that parents sign up for a time to meet with teachers.

These will be virtual conferences unless otherwise requested.  Teachers would generally prefer that this time is reserved for parents only, so be aware of your proximity to your child during a virtual meeting. Teachers need the chance to speak openly and honestly, but wish to [...]

They sacrifice themselves, their own well-being, and even their financial security to provide for all the wants of their children. I’m sure you might have seen instances of parents who have almost driven themselves into financial ruin by continuing to protect their grown children from bad financial and personal decisions.  In my experience, this has [...]

YAY FOR BEANSTACK! Our own LSEM teacher, Mrs. Cadie Koosman, was one of ten school representatives to be interviewed by the Beanstack team based upon a request by their CEO.  Of our 171 registered students, 88% are actively reading and logging minutes on Beanstack!  (As a means of comparison, the Atlanta school district uses Beanstack, but has a lesser percentage of students who are actively reading and logging.)  We may be small, but we are mighty!  As one of Beanstack’s smaller clients, one goal in interviewing Mrs. Koosman was to gain insight on how we are using the program to motivate [...]
