Welcome Messages

I would like to welcome all students, staff, and parents to another school year at Lennox Elementary and LWC Intermediate.  I hope you find Lennox as a District that strives on safety, building positive relationships, and excellence. 

We added two new staff members to Lennox Elementary and moved a couple of other teachers around to new grade levels and content areas.  Stephanie Henry will be our new 3rd grade teacher as Mrs. Hardie is now teaching 2nd grade.  Mrs. Henry had taught 1st grade in Flandreau for a number of years.  Mr. Manitz moved to 3-6 PE and Tara Drake will be our new 4th grade teacher.  Mrs. Drake previously taught 3rd grade in Worthing. Finally, Mrs. Bartscher will be back in the classroom as she spent last year as mentor to three teachers while earning her master's degree as a Reading Specialist through the University of South Dakota.

We will have a few new curriculum and program additions this school year.  In grades K-2, we will utilize Reading Eggs as our personalized online learning tool as grades 3-6 will continue to use Exact Path.  Both are individualized computer program that pushes students in content areas they excel in, and help in weak areas according to the NWEA formative assessment we give three times a year. Reading Eggs focuses on English Language Arts skills while Exact Path focuses on English Language Arts and math.

3rd grade will join 2nd grade in implementing Walk to Read.  This philosophy meets students where they are in their reading. Staff will be able to hone in on strengths and weaknesses for student growth.  Students will be moving from classroom to classroom each day in both grade levels depending on their needs.
