Ms. Guedri’s class learns about the past

Ms. Guedri’s Class completed and shared research projects on various famous Influential African American Contributors to our society. After presenting, we had a guest speaker, retired school teacher and legend Ms. Brown Scott, who shared her real life experiences growing up and attending a segregated elementary school, and then what it was like when she then attended the newly integrated Caroline Middle School.

LCES-Getting to Know our Students More

During our Professional Development day, the teachers and staff participated in an activity that pushed them to look beyond the academics and focus on how well they actually know their students. We would like our teachers and staff to build real connections with our students.

Teachers and staff put checks next to students names that they knew by name/face, something personal about them, academically and the students personal story.
