A Note from the Principal...

September is here, which means we get to recognize our first "students of the month". Each month every teacher nominates a student of the month based off of our 'Mane' Traits of a Lion, which you could read about in the newsletter. The 'Mane' Trait for September is "Show Up". Congratulations to everyone who was nominated. School will not be in session on Monday in observance of Labor Day. Enjoy your long weekend!

'Mane' Traits of a Lion

LCSC has incorporated the 'Mane' Traits of a Lion for Success. The ten traits above are a common set of expectations for Loogootee students K-12 to learn and live by. Over the last week, Mrs. Wade visited classrooms to explain the Mane traits and what each one looks like at school. These Mane Traits are also used to encourage positive behavior.

Each month, we highlight a Mane Trait and select someone from each class as Student of the Month. Each student also has a Mane Trait card that they can get punched when a teacher observes the traits in action. Once a student gets 10 punches on their card, they can turn it in for a prize and are recognized at Monday Morning Meetings. At the end of each month, we have a drawing for 10 winners to win bigger prizes. We will also be drawing two cards at the end of the year for a Grand Prize!
