District 158 has been safely completing our donation of 50 refurbished laptop computers to families in need during the school closure. The picture below is from Reavis last week. This initiative allows more students to remain engaged in learning activities and access educational technology. Computers are being donated at all five schools. Thanks to our #158Strong Board of Education for approving this!
Even though we're practicing safe social distancing because of the shelter-in-place, our #158Strong District Leadership Team is still meeting, planning, and doing everything we can to ensure the safety, wellbeing, and continuity of education for our students. This picture is from our most recent video conference. Email is the best way to get ahold of us right now - we look forward to hearing from you!
Mrs. Garcia's preschool class has been missing the sun in the sky so they took matters into their own hands. They made suns in the art center and compiled them to make a "Missing Sun" bulletin board. Today the sun reappeared in the sky. Thank you Mrs. Garcia's class for bringing the sunshine back to Lansing!
Lester Crawl's first Parent Cafe for the year! Our new Parent Educator Ms. Hohenstein, facilitated a meet and greet for the preschool parents by playing a game called Front and Center. This was a time to enjoy breakfast, get to know other parents, and receive some community support materials. The next Parent Cafe will be held in November.
Kindergarten students at Lester Crawl are learning about teeth using hard boiled eggs. An experiment was performed to see what would happen if a hard boiled egg was put in different liquids. After students made their predictions, they observed the results. The shell in this picture dissolved after being put in vinegar and the egg acted like it has a cavity!
Lester Crawl School held a “Tech Free Night” for their families on Tuesday, February 19. The evening began with stories read by our guest readers: Board Vice President Mrs. Long, Superintendent Mr. Schilling, and Physical Education Teacher Mrs. Yonkers. Families were then able to enjoy quality time playing various board games with each other. The evening concluded with the attendees being able to select books to bring the joy of reading home.
Lester Crawl’s Parent Resource Specialist, Mrs. Halper, led a Parent Cafe this week on Nutrition and Healthy Habits. Parents of preschool children participated in a snack challenge and were introduced to yoga poses that our students learn at school to calm their bodies. If you look carefully, you will see some parents with ear pieces that allow them to hear the presentation in Spanish. District Interpreter Mrs. Boshears was doing the translating.
