    LHS Champion and Involvement Survey and District SEL Survey - October 24, 2022: On October 24, our students will be completing the LHS Champion and Involvement Survey and district SEL Survey during the 1st module of Academic Lab.  These two surveys provide information which allow our school community to plan and care for our students.  Please read the description of each survey below.

    • LHS Champion and Involvement Survey - Each year, we ask our students to fill out the LHS Champion and Involvement Survey as an additional layer of support.  This survey asks each student to identify one adult at Lafayette for whom the student would be comfortable requesting support or assistance.  As school teams, we work together with parents and staff in the best interest of our students. The name of your student’s LHS Champion will be included at the bottom of the student’s schedule.  Please click HERE to see the full survey.

     

    • District SEL Survey - Social and emotional learning is an important part of the educational experience.  

      • Students will be asked to complete an online questionnaire that encourages them to reflect on their own mindsets, experiences and approaches with learning.  These questions help us to check in with our students to ensure they feel connected to our school and we are meeting their social and emotional needs.

      • The information that is collected in the questionnaire will be shared with your child’s school and teachers to guide the work that we do as a school and district (will not be used as part of their grade or academic record).  For a complete list of questions, please visit our website, https://www.rsdmo.org/Page/5488.

      • The survey is voluntary and students can feel free to skip any question within the survey.  If you do not want your child to complete the survey, please notify Dr. Mandy Lewis at your child's school or use the Social Emotional Learning Opt-Out Form in Clevr to indicate you would not like your child to participate by Friday, October 21.

     

    South Tech Open House is coming up. I encourage any interested students to attend an Open House and see the school for themselves. It's pretty impressive!
