Principal's Message

The opening weeks of school went very smoothly.  We attribute this to the careful planning of our office staff, teachers, cafeteria, and custodial staff.  Our teachers did an outstanding job preparing for the very important first day of class and making students feel welcome and safe at school.  We would like to remind you of several parent resources we have at Lillian St.  There are parent bulletin boards outside the library that have up-to-date information and pictures of school events.  Our Parent Center is up and running in room PK1.  Please see Mrs. Denise Valdez, our Community Representative if you would like to volunteer.  We are still in need of classroom volunteers in all rooms.  If you have a free morning, please consider volunteering at our school.  The more volunteers we have the more our children learn.  Together we will make Lillian St. the best it can be allowing us to Soar Above the Rest.

Curriculum New for the 2017-2018 School Year

In the coming year we will continue with the implementation of the Common Core State Standards.  The new standards are being used throughout the United States to prepare our students for college and careers.  With the Common Core Standards there is a bog focus on informational reading and writing as well as opinion writing.  Lillian Street School will also continue with Professional Development with trainers from Columbia Teachers College, helping all our teachers learn more and more about teaching reading and writing.  We will be holding parent workshops in all grade levels to show you ways you can make sure your child reads at home to practice reading strategies and become a strong, thinking reader.  All students will have reading logs and leveled books at their independent reading level to use daily at home. Research tells us that all students need a minimum of one hour of reading time each day for each year they are in school to be ready for college.  Every day is important to make sure that our students do not fall behind.  Also in the new school year we will continue with our math program called "My Math" which is aligned to the Common Core Standards.

Summer Reading Tips for Parents

*Play "I Spy" and ask your children to point to letters in the alphabet when you are driving, walking, shopping, or reading.

*Take your child to story-telling time at your local library. They will make reading a fun activity.

*Keep books, magazines, and newspapers around the house. This creates a reading environment.

*Read daily with your child and on your own. If you are a reader, your child will be too.

*Help your child find letters on things you see everyday; cereal boxes, food packages, signs, etc.
