Look For Good Project: We have begun rolling out the first phase of our “Look For Good” project as seen with the gratitude wall when you first walk into school. This coming Friday, all classrooms across the school will be participating in an initial rollout – learning about the motivation of the project, the meaning of gratitude, and enjoying a school-wide read aloud, “Her Right Foot” by Dave Eggers. We will also have a small portion of our LT Thanksgiving tied to the project, as well.
Research tied to this project suggest that if we first teach students the meaning of gratitude, we can dramatically improve positive student interactions, while also reduces bullying incidences. Please stay tuned for the next phases and begin talking with students about the meaning of gratitude. Also, as a fundraiser to support the project, our social-emotional learning committee put together a stylish long sleeve t-shirt that can be ordered for $20 through the following link: https://www.customink.com/fundraising/ltes-look4good
After-School Clubs: We have received many inquiries about afterschool clubs, please visit https://www.ludlowtaylor.org/clubs.html for the winter club offerings.
LTES PTO Fall Campaign: Over the next few days, in backpacks, all families will be receiving information regarding our PTO Fall Fundraising Campaign. As a reminder, 100% of donations directly impacts students and staff across all grade levels. As we know, the DCPS budget alone is not enough to achieve the world-class education we seek for our students. Your donations help bridge the gap by allowing investments in technology, inquiry-based learning materials, capital improvements, and adequate supplies for our teachers and specials leads. Please visit http://www.ludlowtaylor.org/donate.html for further information.
