Hello Lake Shore Families!
Welcome to the 2021-2022 school year! I hope you all have enjoyed this beautiful summer!
We are excited to have Mr. Flanagan as our new Principal at Lake Shore High School!
We will continue to keep everyone safe and healthy by following the CDC guidelines for schools this year, using masks, social distancing, and hand sanitizers in the classroom. Please read the district home page for continual updates and important information. We are looking forward to a wonderful new school year!
We are moving our classroom to Room 101 in the East wing this year, as the Life Skills class and kitchen will be renovated through the Lake Shore Central Capital Project.
We will not be sharing supplies this year, so please check the list of supplies your student will need to bring to school on Wednesday, September 1st.
- colored pencils
- crayons or markers (both if you prefer)
- small packs of personal tissues
- ruler (wood or plastic)
- large Elmer's Glue stick
- Large ZipLoc baggie to hold supplies
- one folder with pockets (any color) to be used as a take home/communication folder
- backpack to be brought each day with the take home folder and agenda that will be given at the beginning of the year.
- We will have hand sanitizer in class, but if you would like a small personal size to fit in the baggie you may bring one of those as well.
The Life Skills Program is using the Unique Learning System as the classroom curriculum. The curriculum program has been designed and differentiated specifically for students with special learning needs. While the foundation of Unique is the content standards (Reading, Writing, Math, and Science/ Social Studies), the lessons are modified to make sure that all students have a way to participate and learn. There is a strong emphasis on Lifeskills that are embedded in each lesson. Unique Learning System has a High School/ Transition Grade Band with Instructional Targets which are as follows:
- Daily Living
- Community Living
- Personal Life
- Lifelong Learning
We also follow the Dynamic Learning Maps, which outlines the NYS Alternate Assessments. These Essential Elements coincide with the NYS Common Core Standards.
I will be sending home a monthly newsletter to keep you informed on our lessons and activities throughout the year. It will also be posted on this website as well.
Please feel free to call the classroom at 926-3799 or email me at email@example.com if you ever have any questions or concerns throughout the year and I will be happy to get back to you as soon as possible.
We are looking forward to a wonderful year in the Life Skills program! Go Eagles!
