Lancaster STAR

You might have heard from your child that they were praised for acting like a Lancaster STAR. The Lancaster community is taking on this acronym (see below) to promote a positive learning community where everyone feels safe, accepted, and welcomed. We will be working and celebrating ways we are Lancaster STARS in and out of the classroom throughout the year. This is a great conversation starter for home to help students reflect on their actions

Show Kindness

Take Responsibility

Act Safely

Respect Everyone

Students are assigned nightly/weekly homework in math, reading, and word study. Homework is your child’s responsibility and a great opportunity for them to practice what they’ve learned in class as well as build their organizational skills. To support this accountability, please remind your child to reference their homework planner and materials in their folder and literacy binder. These should be coming to and from school daily!

Healthy Snacks & Breakfast

Students have been coming in from morning recess asking for their snacks and by the time our snack time comes around, they are still hungry! Please make sure you’re sending your child with healthy options to keep them energized!

Lancaster offers a great breakfast and snack program that many of our students take advantage of. Please check out the link below for more information about how these programs can support your child!
