School will be starting in a few short days and the Leroy staff is thrilled to embark on another journey together with you. I hope everyone had a relaxing summer of fun, family, and lots and lots of reading! At Leroy Elementary, An IB World School, we are dedicated to fostering a child-centered and inquiring learning environment that challenges every student to reach their highest potential and personal academic and social growth. Our families and community play an integral role in creating this environment. Together we can make this happen by collaborating, thinking big, inspiring innovation, and creating rigorous and relevant learning experiences.
We were once again recipients of a very generous technology donation for the 2014-15 school year from a private family foundation. Through specific teacher and grade level applications submitted in the fall, we were awarded enough money to purchase a SmartBoard for 5th grade and a significant number of chromebooks. This is moving us closer to reaching our goal of a 2:1 student to device ratio. Excitingly, this is already true for our 3rd and 4th grade classrooms with the others not far behind. Be sure to ask your child about these exciting opportunities! For this 2015-16 school year, we will continue to seek out and apply for technology upgrade opportunities in order to meet and surpass this goal.
We are continuing to improve our website as a way to foster improved communication between our students, parents, community and staff. Feel free to have a look around. Our Staff Directory page contains a complete list of the fantastic individuals currently employed at Leroy. With the new site we've added a Questions About Leroy section where you can find answers to frequent inquires we've received. Our Classrooms section contains a complete list of classes for the current school year broken down by type or grade and if you're interested in what Leroy has to offer outside of class feel free to look over our Leroy Activities page. Lastly, if you have any questions or would like to leave a comment please feel free to contact us. We'd love to hear from you.
