Soaring to the Future!


The Parent/StudentVUE portal is a component of the LPS Student Information System that allows parents/guardians to:

  • Monitor grades and attendance
  • Get detailed assignment and course information
  • Select and print reports
  • Automatically receive notification when a grade falls below a selected level or when unexpected absences occur

Thank you for entrusting your child to us this school year.  We will do our best every day to be your child’s guide in learning and exploring.

Behavior Expectations

Be Respectful, Be Responsible, Be Safe.

Goals for Life

I can take good care of myself even if I am mad.

I can be productive and follow directions even if I don’t want to.

I can be ok even when others are not ok.

The Bottom Line

It is never ok to be disruptive. It is never ok to be hurtful.

McGraw Hill Reading Wonders


On the first school day of each week students will take a spelling pretest. The list words correlate to the phonics and spelling lessons taught throughout the week. If students demonstrate mastery of the words on their pretest by missing two or fewer they will be given a more challenging list. Students will practice the words and word patterns at school, but they should also practice at home.  The posttest occurs on the last school day of the week.

The goal is not to select difficult words that students study for the weekly test and soon forget. The words and word patterns spelled correctly, as well as the students’ spelling errors, open a window to understanding students’ strengths and weaknesses in phonics.
