Cherokee Student's Artwork Chosen for City's 4th of July Celebration

Eight grade graduation set May 31 at LFHS West campus.

 

District 67 second through eighth grade students have been participating in a brief School-Wide Behavior Support Survey. The survey is consistent with a positive behavior support model, which forms a portion of the district's Emotional Wellness Initiative, and offers an important glimpse into student perceptions and experiences in the school environment. Parents' perspectives are very important as well, and the district intends to evaluate and refine its efforts for next school year, based upon feedback. Therefore, parents are asked to complete a parent survey using the link that can be found on the website: www.lf67.org by June 1. Parents who have comments or questions about the survey, as asked to contact Joe Malin at jmalin@lfschools.net

Cherokee Elementary was dedicated 50 years ago in October 1962. The fourth-grade students this year represent the 50th graduating class. Several activities have been planned for students this spring to celebrate the 50th anniversary, including: Door Decorating, an All-School, Birthday Treat, a Sharing Assembly (featuring former students and information about the school over the years), Dedicated Art (Mrs. McLaughlin and the fourth-grade students are putting the finishing touches a piece of art to be placed in the front foyer), and a Community Celebration and Open House planned for October. The Cherokee APT also has a Facebook page "Cherokee 50th" for former and current students, staff, and parents to join and share memories and pictures.

Deer Path Middle School students who have been issued a netbook computer are reminded that the netbooks will be collected before school ends. Every student is required to return their netbook, charger, and case the case that was issued to them. Fines issued, due to negligence, must be paid before the yearbook will be distributed. This is the same procedure as library materials. All netbooks are to be returned on or before May 25. The same netbook issued this year will be reissued at the start of the 2012-2013 school year. Over the summer reimaging will occur. All files are to be backed up to Dropbox or a flash drive.

Project-Eye-To-Eye pairs children with LD/ADHD with similarly labeled Lake Forest College student mentors to build their self-esteem, help them to value their own unique minds, and make them self-advocates. Through art-based activities, Project-Eye-To-Eye participants have the opportunity to access their gifts for spatial, tactile/kinetic, and interpersonal learning that are often limited within a traditional educational model. Project-Eye-To-Eye will meet one day (to be determined in August 2012) per week at Deer Path Middle School from 3:45-4:45 p.m. Contact Anne Dunn at (847) 235-9661 or adunn@lfschools.net for additional information.
