A Message from Mr. James Przepasniak
It’s hard to believe that we are already well into the second half of our school year! I want to thank our administrators, faculty, and staff for continuing to deliver high-quality learning and opportunities for growth for students at each of our schools. From the classroom to transportation, we are building on our reputation as one of the finest Districts in Western New York.
2017 brought improved state assessment results in English Language Arts (ELA), a 90% graduation rate, and large participation in athletics, activities, and the arts. Our students are taking advantage of becoming well-rounded members of our community and that is a reflection of the excellence expected in our classrooms.
I encourage everyone to be sure to read the important information concerning changes made to the New York State English Language Arts (ELA)/Math Assessments. We have created a straight-forward set of bullet points that clearly outline the modifications that have been made by State Education. Those can be found in this edition of the Eagle Express.
Lake Shore also recently recognized a number of staff and members of the student body for their outstanding achievements across the District. You will find more information about that celebration in this edition of the newsletter as well.
The District continues to meet with our architectural firm and project managers as we move forward with our Capital Construction Project. I am often asked about the progress of this ambitious plan and I can say with pride that we are on track to providing our students and community with the best and safest facilities in the area.
As we move forward into 2018, I look to see more outstanding performances on the stage and on our fields, but we are also focused on achievement in each of our classes. It is imperative that we ‘keep our foot on the gas’ and empower students every day with skills, knowledge, understanding, confidence, and leadership to inspire them to succeed.
I’m looking forward to a great second half of the school year full of successes the entire Lake Shore Community can be proud of.
