  • Lillian Larsen School will be recognizing
     Veteran's Day and honoring local veterans
     at 8:15 in the main quad of the school.  If you are a veteran, please join us at this important event.  We would appreciate it if you would contact the school with your name, branch of service and years served prior to November 7th so we can appropriately honor you at the event.

    Lillian Larsen middle school students started the school year off by working in teams, and with their teachers, to define what type of year they wanted to have. Using a social contract concept from the Flippen Group, students came up with behaviors, attitudes and actions that would define what a successful classroom would look like.

    Once the students listed all the attributes on a large piece of chart paper, they discussed them and everyone in the class signed the list, signifying agreement and commitment to excellence and achievement in 2014-15.

    Teachers at Lillian Larsen School in San Miguel attended training with the Flippen Group last year and are dedicated to “Capturing Kids Hearts”, the essence of the program. In addition to classroom contracts, they make sure to greet every student as they enter class and “launch” the students off at the end of the day with a motivational wrap up.

    In addition to creating the contracts, the middle school students completed a multiple intelligences on-line survey and a team problem-solving activity using depth of knowledge questions skills.

    Lillian Larsen School provides ipads to every students in grades 4,5 and 6 as well as low class sizes. Most middle school classes, taught by single subject highly qualified staff members, have less than 20 students. As students mature and move toward high school, the smaller class sizes really help teachers get to know the students on a personal level.

    For more information on the Flippen Group strategies being used at the school contact professional development liaison Laura Learned or Principal Judy Bedell at (805) 467-3216 ext 201.

    brochure/magazine published  monthly by Southern Pacific
