Term 1 K-2 and Grade 1 Model Students PDF Print E-mail

We are pleased to announce the Model Students of K-2 and Grade 1 for the First Quarter at the Academy. The reason we place so much emphasis on the Model Student Award is that it is attainable to all students, not just those who earn good grades. Every single child is capable of being a Model Student. We have students who are attending school in person as well as Remote Learners who are Model Students. It is a true testament to the dedication our parents have to the education of their children that so many of our Model Students are Remote Learners. This means they need to get up early and put their uniforms on to attend Zoom Meetings and behave accordingly at those meetings, along with completing their online work and their packets. We are so proud of you all! The criteria for being a Model Student at the Academy is below.

  • Come to school (no more than two absences in a quarter)
  • Come to school on time
  • Listen to the teacher
  • Do your work at school and at home
  • Be kind to your friends

FLU VACCINE UPDATE

 

January 15, 2021

 

Dear LFDCS Families:

 

The Massachusetts Department of Public Health is removing the requirement for flu vaccination for attendance in childcare/preschool, primary, secondary and postsecondary education. Preliminary data show that this has been a mild flu season to date, presumably as people have received their seasonal flu vaccine and have been adhering to mask wearing and social distancing due to COVID-19. Given the intensive Commonweath-wide efforts regarding COVID-19 vaccination, DPH wants to alleviate the burden to obtain flu vaccination and focus on continuing our COVID-19 vaccination efforts. DPH continues to strongly recommend that everyone age six months and older receive their seasonal flu vaccine each year.

Rising to the challenges of remote teaching & learning in 2019 - 2020 

Lawrence Family Development Charter School's Innovative Learning Team (ILT) was established in the 2018-2019 school year to use digital tools in the classroom thoughtfully, effectively, and efficiently.

Below are two examples of the work LFDCS teachers have done, associated to the ILT. Interested in see more? Click on the Innovative Learning Team in the SPOTLIGHT section.

CORNERSTONES FOR SUCCESS PDF Print E-mail

Academic Program


Our program includes a dual-language model with students learning in both Spanish and English. The goal is to enable students to attain advanced levels of functional proficiency in two languages and to promote understanding of and appreciation for the cultures represented by the languages studied. The primary objective is to teach students language and literacy skills that will allow them to function effectively in both their personal and professional lives. We feel the development of literacy will foster a love of learning to read, and then the competency of reading to learn.

Leadership


We believe there is a strong link between school success and effective and consistent leadership. As a result, our Board of Trustees, is composed of parents, alumni and community stakeholders who provide valuable oversight and focus on creating and upholding policies that support our students and their families. Our administrative structure consists of a Principal and three Heads of School who manage daily operations and discipline. Leadership from the ranks of the teaching staff is also highly evident, as teachers improve curriculum and serve as mentors to novice educators.

Community Partnerships


Our goal is to work with many individuals and organizations in order to provide the resources necessary to enhance and enrich the lives of our students, both during the day and in our extended day and extended year programs. The quality and breadth of our community partnership program is unique. We work with an extensive array of local private schools, parent and community volunteers and organizations providing on-site programs.

Parent Partners


We believe that when parents are actively involved in their children’s education, students have a better chance of succeeding academically. At LFDCS parents are required to be active participants in the education of their children. Parents serve on our Board of Trustees, participate in training programs designed to help them work with their children at home, volunteer in the classroom and on field trips and assist with fundraising initiatives. All parents sign a contract that places high expectations on their participation both at school and at home.
