We will be celebrating Red Ribbon Week this week.  Red Ribbon Week serves as a vehicle for communities and individuals to take a stand for the hopes and dreams of our children through a commitment to drug prevention and education and a personal commitment to live drug free lives. Listed are some of the activities that we will be involved in Sept 30th-Oct. 4th:

UNITED IN THE.....FAMILY!

At Mt. Loafer, we are united in many things, but this year we are striving to be united as a Mt. Loafer Family!  Our whole school took part in becoming family units with students from all different grades.  These family units were then assigned to a teacher.  Our great teachers taught a wonderful lesson about taking care of each other in our Mt. Loafer families!  They talked about what a family looks like and what we know about caring for each other.  They discussed what a person does when they care for others and about how each student can live a life caring for others.  

 

SIXTH GRADE TEAM BUILDING

The sixth grade students are off to a great start this year!  They began the school year with some great team building activities that taught them how to work together, to value each member of their class, and how to problem solve!  These sixth-graders are our leaders at Mt. Loafer and we appreciate their example!  

Collaborative Culture!

Have you ever wondered what teachers do on early out Wednesday's?

All teachers at Mt. Loafer are United in the Climb!  United in seeking frequent opportunities to learn from and teach each other.  It is the norm for all teachers to meet each Wednesday to examine student work and use what is learned from that examination to make decisions about instruction.  All...general education teachers, special education teachers, and administration study and learn together.

Mt. Loafer Elementary is fortunate to start an ebook library for our children.  An ebook is a book in electronic format.  It is downloaded and read on the screen. This has been made available to us by the generous donations of the Landon Clark Hughes family.  We are so grateful for their continuing support in funding our school library.  

Parents and students can have access to ebooks at home by following these simple instructions:

The goal of Red Ribbon Week is to provide an opportunity for students and teachers to talk about some of the dangers and risks that are involved with experimentation and prolonged use of drugs and alcohol. 

September 30-October 4 is Red Ribbon Week at Mt. Loafer.  Here are the activites planned for the week:

iPads in the Classroom

At Mt. Loafer, students explore and ask questions, lots and lots of questions, and teachers find ways to answer those questions.  Teachers now have another tool to transform student learning.  Every teacher in every classroom at Mt. Loafer is now equipped with an iPad!  Using the iPads as a tool, teachers and students will have more choice in how to learn, show, and share the learning.
