Our fall book fair is scheduled October 18th through October 26th. Once again, Scholastic will be offering both the Online Book Fair and the eWallet payment option to provide easy opportunities for families to shop for books with their students outside of the library walls. Both can be accessed through our Scholastic Book Fair homepage.

Teachers will be able to select books for their Wish Boxes so students and families can purchase something for their classroom libraries. These boxes will be placed along the bookcase near our check out line. Just see what your child’s teacher is wishing for and take one to buy for the classroom.

Our Evening Book Sale will coincide with the Curriculum Night on Thursday, October 25th.

September is Attendance Awareness Month

September is Attendance Awareness Month

  • Improving attendance and reducing chronic absence is not rocket science, but it does take commitment, collaboration and tailored approaches to the particular strengths and challenges of each school or community. Across the nation, schools, communities and advocates have successfully taken steps to ensure children are attending school more regularly.

Here is what’s happening at LCES!!

For  grade levels: Weekly competition among grade levels for the best attendance rate each week during the month of September.  Students will receive a special attendance pencil.

For classes: Prize awarded to the class with the best attendance for the month of September, McDonald’s Happy Meal Coupon!!

For students: ALL DAY, EVERY DAY popsicle reward- Students who are here every day, all day for the month will receive a popsicle.

Attendance Matters!

LCES Grizzly Ways to Respond

The CCPS Appropriate Ways to respond is a way to help students respond appropriately to adult requests.  Students in Caroline County have four choices in how they respond when a request is made.  All employees model the appropriates ways to respond as well as body language and tone to create a culture of mutual respect.  It is not a student’s inappropriate behavior that gets them in trouble.  It is usually how a student responds when their inappropriate behavior is being addressed that gets them in trouble.  The entire CCPS community believes that this is a life lesson that will help all student be productive and positive citizens.

  1. Say “Okay” and complete the task.
  2. Say “Yes” and complete the task.
  3. Say “Yes Ma’am” or “Yes Sir” and complete the task.
  4. Say nothing (when appropriate) and do what is requested.
