Commencement Marks New Beginning for MOCI Students

Seven students from the Class of 2019 graduated from the MOCI Special Education program. After our Band played Pomp and Circumstance, students received individual recognition from their senior mentors, spoke about their own favorite memories, listened to our Women's Chamber Choir sing, watched a slideshow highlighting the year’s achievements, and were officially declared graduates with the moving of the tassel from right to left. Students looked beautiful, adorned in their graduation regalia, and celebrated this achievement with staff, friends, family, and cake. Congratulations Tyler Cranston, Malayna Anthony, William Moore, LeRoy Hannah, Hailee Schalm, Quinn Dominick, and Alan Martin!

Breakthrough for Brain Tumors Walk

The Lake Shore team participated in the BT5K Michigan Breakthrough for Brain Tumors Run & Walk, an inspiring and fun event benefiting the American Brain Tumor Association. Our Lake Shore team supported our co-worker and friend, Emily Tims! Emily was diagnosed with Glioblastoma earlier this year and is working with her team of doctors to treat her brain cancer. We all miss seeing Emily at school very much and we want her to know how much she is loved. She surprised everyone by making an appearance today!

Thank you, Lake Shore Community, for joining this team in support of Emily and the nearly 700,000 people currently living with a brain tumor. Because of your donations, we raised $4,125 to show her support and raise awareness for this great cause.

STEAM and AP Computer Science Added to Curriculum

Two new courses have been approved by our Board of Education for the 2019-20 school year.

AP Computer Science Principles offers a multidisciplinary approach to teaching the underlying principles of computation. The course will introduce students to the creative aspects of programming, abstractions, algorithms, large data sets, the Internet, cybersecurity concerns, and computing impacts. AP Computer Science Principles also gives students the opportunity to use current technologies to create computational artifacts for both self-expression and problem solving. Together, these aspects of the course make up a rigorous and rich curriculum that aims to broaden participation in computer science.

Elementary STEAM Special will provide a project-based learning opportunity for K-5 students centered around Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math. Experiences will include design-thinking, collaboration, research, presentation, and digital citizenship. The STEAM course will support the development of skills necessary to support a successful Lake Shore graduate. The special will be scheduled as part of the elementary "specials" programming.

Preparation for Elementary Media Center Renovations

Update: Renovation has begun on the Masonic Heights, Rodgers, and Violet Media Centers. Construction will continue through the summer and is slated to wrap up by November 1st. The projects will feature STEAM and Maker spaces, reading nooks, collaboration spaces and new flexible furnishings.

Governor Whitmer recognizes April as School Library Month in Michigan. School librarians curate collections and promote access to books and information, teach information literacy and digital literacy skills, and support technology integration and innovation. It is just as important to have personnel for these activities to function as it is to have a place. But not just any setting. Our vision is to transform our media centers into the focal point of every school.

Construction begins on May 1 at Lake Shore Public Schools to renovate all three elementary libraries. Because today's libraries are shifting into an environment for students and teachers to collaborate, restructuring these spaces is necessary.

Changes in physical structure and aesthetics will include new lighting and carpeting, updated small group rooms for collaborating, sharing, and learning, and planning for flexible use of space. In addition, plans for flexible checkout times are also being considered. With the help of Destiny Discover, students are able to browse, search, and access our school library’s resources. Students may instantly see whether or not a book is in, browse ebook selections, search by topic, or listen to an audiobook!

Media Specialist and Instructional Coach Amanda McCarthy is one of our leaders in charge of these positive changes. She and the Media Technicians, Nicole Dombro, Teresa Seymour, Laurie Cataldo, have worked tirelessly to weed through outdated books and supplies, boxing up and storing library materials in preparation for this upcoming renovation. She shared, " It is important to focus library space on the development of the learning. which this renovation will serve to do.”

With a projected completion date of the fall, elementary students will be excited to explore new books and learning opportunities.
