On Friday, April 13th, Lake Arrowhead Elementary students were welcomed upon their arrival for this Spirit and Pride Day with positive messages, upbeat music playing, and smiles. Our LAE Positive Youth Development Leadership Team also participated by creating signs of encouragement related to the upcoming Smarter Balanced Summative and finishing the academic year strong (“Achieve” “Persevere” “Stay Strong”).
Throughout each trimester this year, the staff and PTA parents have been acknowledging both students and their parents of their positive character traits (“You ARE a good parent”) and sharing inspirational messages (“Believe in yourself!”). After each event, parents and students expressed gratitude and joy seeing their teachers welcoming them to school. One kindergartener shared with her teacher, “The party is still going in my head!” Our goal is for students and their families to know that LAE is here to support and encourage their success. We truly love our families!
