Mr. Marcin's Message 2-12-19

Good Afternoon Lead Mine Families!

What a week we had last week and we just cannot say thank you or show enough appreciation to everyone for such a fantastic week!

The P2 Assembly last Monday was amazing and we are so proud of all the students at Lead Mine who have worked hard to demonstrate all of our 24 Character Strengths. We appreciate our teachers who build this instruction into their morning meetings and our students who do such a great job demonstrating these character traits throughout each and every day

The Lead Mine Elementary PTA Book Fair has come to a close with the help of many volunteers, teachers and staff ensuring its success. We appreciate all that each of you did to show support of literacy in our school!

The staff of Lead Mine Elementary was featured at the NCASCD conference in Pinehurst, NC this week for the amazing work that they have done in supporting the growth and development of ALL students. The Professional Learning Team structure, coaching model, and the effective use of data to analyze student learning were all critical and supported by the ways in which they have all worked to build positive, supportive, and effective relationships with our children. WAY TO GO Lead Mine Staff!

Our NINE writing contest winners were recognized yesterday at Barnes and Noble at Triangle Town Center. Thank you to everyone who encouraged students to participate and those of you who took time to support students/families at the event! We are so proud of all the writers who shared their stories.

The 5th grade dance is Tuesday - We are excited to welcome back our 5th grade students/families to celebrate their learning.

Friday is an early release at Lead Mine. We will dismiss at 12:30 PM Please ensure that your child's teacher is aware if there will be a change in transportation that day. 

As this is the last week that Coach C will be with us in her official capacity we have a few things planned that to show her how much we love her.

Tuesday - "Cards for Coach" - Students/Staff/Families are encouraged to write cards to Coach C sharing a thought or a memory shared throughout the years.

Wednesday - "Sport Spirit" - Wear your favorite team jersey

Thursday - "Cherish Coach with Chocolate" - Bring a chocolate treat to show Coach C how sweet you really think she is.

Friday - Final Leopard Lap - We will be having a Clap Out for Coach C. beginning at 12:05 (ish) students and staff will line the hallways to clap out Coach C on her final Leopard Lap throughout the building. Anyone in our Lead Mine community is invited to attend. 

Thank you to everyone who has helped in all the big and small ways to continue to make Lead Mine Elementary one of the most amazing places to be each and every day!
