Thank you to the parents, learners, and staff who came to the 1st and 3rd grade POLs. The 1st grade learners were experts on describing the functions, parts and placements of the human lungs. They incorporated cognition while they used language arts, design thinking, art, and presentation skills as they demonstrated their awareness by painting, labeling, and presenting their lung paintings.
The 3rd grade learners taught us about force and motion with their homemade bottle cap and balloon racers. The driving question was “How does force and motion affect our everyday lives?” They learned about Sir Isaac Newton, gravity, friction, and repulsion.
The Rodeo came to iLEAD AV! Thank you to our friends at the PRCA ProRodeo who came to perform for the learners. They were very excited to see the dog show, and had some laughs with Danny the clown!

A word to families of 5th-8th graders: We are at the time of the year when we complete the Gallup Poll. This student poll helps us measure how well we are doing as a school. It is a short web-based survey that is available in both English and Spanish and will take approximately 10 minutes to complete. It has 24 core items that measure four elements, including school engagement, hope for the future, entrepreneurial aspirations, and career/financial literacy. The Gallup Student Poll gives learners a voice in building great schools, and results provide schools with important, actionable information beyond standard measures, such as grades and test scores, to help schools prepare kids for the future.
This survey is anonymous and voluntary. That means Gallup cannot identify your child and your learner’s individual responses will not be shared with anyone.
A letter will be coming home with your learner on Monday 10/14 regarding The Gallup Poll. Please read it over and return the letter by Wednesday, 10/16 if your learner will be able to participate in the poll. The Gallup Poll will be held in their classrooms the week of 10/21.
MAP testing continues for our kindergarteners through 8th graders. There will be make-up testing this week. Please be sure your child is at school and on time and ready to finish the MAP testing. The new semester begins on January
