• January 2019


    A new year means new goals to set, share, track, and celebrate. Three ongoing school-wide goals are:  improved attendance, reading skills, and math skills. The attendance goal is the highest priority because, well, when students are here—they learn more! So being here all day, every day, for most days of the school year is the first priority.

    Students also learn more when they feel connected to school. A goal the Salmon Lodge Leader (3rd through 5th grade principal) and I have set for the entire elementary school in 2019 is to connect with each student in our respective lodges through “lunch bunch”. We will each meet with small groups of students each week and eat lunch or a snack together and listen to their feedback, hopes, and dreams. Their feedback will help guide our future goals and upcoming opportunities for student enrichment.

    I welcome your input as well. Stay tuned for 2019 opportunities for you to connect with me and share your thoughts. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out by phone: 253-445-6001 or email: Michelle.Zimnisky@leschischools.org.  Thank you for your partnership.

    Cheers to a new year!
