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.

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!

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.

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:
