Principal's Message

As the year comes to a close we wish you and your family a happy and healthy holiday period.  This is a good time to reflect on what we have accomplished this year and to give thanks for all we have.  It has been a very busy first semester focused on English Language Arts, Math Problem Solving, Read Alouds, Reader’s and Writer’s Workshop, Science and History/Social Science instruction.  Our teachers continued their work in Professional Learning Communities and are setting goals for improved student achievement.  Our student’s success is due to the dedication of the teachers, staff, and parent support.  We are very pleased with their academic progress.  Our Thanksgiving food drive was very successful and your donations helped make a happy Thanksgiving for 30+ Lillian families.  We would like to thank our wonderful parent volunteers who made all the turkey baskets.    We hope you will all take time over the holidays to read to your children daily and have them read to you too.  We look forward to seeing you all again January 8, 2018.  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.
