Looking ahead...District Redesign
We now know that all 4th grade students will be educated in Lime Springs beginning next fall. Now the conversation turns to the logistics of making this happen. 

The intent will be that the teaching and learning at Lime Springs will follow the same model with the same supports available to all other grade levels in the district. We also are working at determining the model that best serves our 6th grade students. 

We have a tentative date of May 27 for introducing next year's 4th grade to the Lime Springs/Chester School in coordination with an evening Open House for parents and students.  

We are in the process of interviewing for PK-1 Principal, Special Education, Spanish, K-8 music, Dean of Students/Activities Director.

Summative Evaluations
Teachers and administrators are in the process of summative evaluation conferences. It has been great to devote time to conversations surrounding best teaching practices. It is very interesting to see the examples that evidence teaching strategies. 

Recognizing positive student behavior and character ... Cadet Pride Store 
The PBIS team is working on a catalog for thCadet Pride Store.  Students can go online and look at the items available for sale.  The address is  

The grand opening of the store will be Friday, May 2 in the elementary Art room.  Please know that we are reserving the Art room for the whole day on the 2nd.  We will send out a sign up sheet for you to select a time for your class to shop.  The time increments are tight, so please have the students look at the catalog to select items they might want before coming to the store.  Understand this our first run at this, so we will make adjustments as needed!  

Thank you to local businesses for their support with items and coupons.

Polar Plunge for HoCa (Howard County Cancer Association)
As some of you may know the "Polar Plunge" phenomenon has swept through the high school and community. So as a way to raise money for our local HoCA we are putting out a challenge to you.  The challenge is:

Raise $500 by NOON Friday, April 25, and Mr. Adams and Mr. Felderman will do the Plunge that afternoon!

Raise $1000 by NOON Friday and Mr. Carver will ALSO do the Polar Plunge!

There will be containers placed in the offices to collect money.  We will need a teacher/staff member to volunteer to help count money and put a container in the office at Elma and Lime Springs.
