Learning with Number Lines


Students in Mrs. Brooks’ 5th Grade Math class recently discovered that there are many numbers between any two whole numbers. They used their newfound knowledge to create number lines that showed where fractions would belong.

 

 
FIFTH GRADE
Microscopes, goggles, and aprons…Oh my!
 The 5th grade at LES has a wonderful resource at their disposal.  The Science Lab is an area where students can “explore” science through hands-on activities.  This resource was strengthened recently with a donation from Donor’s Choose, a website developed to help teachers fund classroom projects.  Mr. Cope saw a need for new microscopes, lab goggles, and lab aprons.  After posting a request, donors from far and wide helped our students out.  We’ve recently received 6 new microscopes with slide sets, and class sets of 30 aprons and goggles. 

  

 



The roundup registration date for PreK and K in Loudon County will be Friday, April 24 at each elementary school. It begins at 8:00 am and ends at 3:00 pm. For PreK, the child must be four years of age by August 15, 2015.  For Kindergarten, the child must be five years of age by August 15, 2015.

The student's legal guardian/ parent must complete the forms for registration at the school they wish to attend. Here is a list of what parents will need to bring to the registration.

For the PreK registration, parents will need to provide proof of income. Income verification documents include pay stubs, W-2 forms, Income Tax 2013, unemployment compensation, workman compensation documentation, pension stubs, retirement documentation, social security, veteran's benefits letter, child support, alimony documentation, SSI documentation, TANF documentation, foster care reimbursement, Public Assistance payment, TN Care verification.
The Voluntary PreK program is specifically funded for children in economically disadvantaged situations. However, we encourage everyone to apply even if they may not qualify as economically disadvantaged because occasionally there are student openings after the economically disadvantaged children are placed in the classes. We want to serve as many children in Loudon County as possible.

For PreK and K registration, parents will need to bring: 
state certified birth certificate 
(a common problem is that parents have the hospital birth certificate but not the state issued one), proof of residence in Loudon County (utility bill, renter's agreement or property tax notice with a matching guardian' s driver's license), proof of Social Security number and if the child is already 4 for PreK or 5 for K they will need to bring their immunization record and medical examination/physical papers. The medical exam/ physical papers can be obtained at their pediatrician's office. If the child was born in the state of TN, the birth certificate can be obtained from the Health Dept. or from the state website.There is usually some difficulty obtaining doctor appointment and birth certificates at the last minute, so we encourage parents to plan ahead for these needs.


 

 
Recently Roberta Burwell, founder of the Good Neighbor Shoppe, presented Loudon Elementary a check to purchase safety equipment.  The funds will be used for an additional AED device and supplies to stock our Safety Backpacks!  We are so appreciative of Mrs. Burwell and the Good Neighbor Shoppe for their generosity and support.


 
WNDN NEWS TEAM
WNDN News is set for broadcast!
 
18 5th grade students decided that LES needed something new.  They set their sights on creating a news broadcast to share information with the entire school.  The students watched and researched local news broadcasts and brainstormed ideas for their own show.
After deciding what jobs would be needed, the students interviewed and auditioned for their desired jobs before the group.  Each student has a job, whether on camera, behind the camera, or behind the scenes.
These students are using technology to learn, and then actively creating their own technology to help others learn, too!
 
 
Way to go WNDN NEWS TEAM!



 
PEN PAL FRIENDS
These students, with the help of Mr. Sangster, have written letters to pen pals in Sapporo, Japan! Each student has been matched with another student their same age. Their new friends in Japan attend an after school English study program. The students in Japan will be opening their letters soon, and writing back to their new friends in America. This is a great opportunity for these students to learn about another culture in a safe setting.
