Leader in Me at Home

As we continue to nurture the growth and development of our children, it's crucial to recognize the importance of leadership roles within the family unit. At home, our children have the opportunity to cultivate essential leadership skills that will serve them throughout their lives.

The Leader in Me program encourages us to foster leadership qualities in our children, helping them become confident, responsible, and proactive individuals. By assigning them roles and responsibilities within the household, we not only teach them valuable life skills but also instill a sense of ownership and pride in their contributions.

Whether it's leading a household meeting, managing chores, or mentoring younger siblings, every task provides an opportunity for our children to practice leadership in a safe and supportive environment. Through these experiences, they learn to communicate effectively, make decisions, and collaborate with others—skills that are essential for success in school, work, and beyond.

Together, let's embrace the journey of developing leaders at home and watch as our children grow into capable and compassionate individuals who positively impact their communities.

The 2023–2024 Title I, Part A Parent and Family Engagement (PFE) Survey will be open from Monday April 29, 2024 through Friday June 7, 2024.

The purpose of this survey is to obtain parents’, guardians’, and adult family members’ perceptions about how well schools are involving them in the educational activities related to their children. To complete this effort, we need your assistance to notify parents and guardians about the survey.

According to P.L. 114-95, Section 1116(a)(2)(D), school districts are required to conduct an annual survey to evaluate parent and family engagement efforts related to Title I funding.

Create Your Child's eWallet

Lovett’s Spring Book Fair is coming soon and now is the perfect time to create your child’s eWallet.

We encourage all parents to consider setting up an eWallet for their children. It's safer than carrying cash, especially for our younger students. No need to worry about misplaced money or loose change. Setting up an eWallet is quick and easy, and it ensures they have the funds they need to explore and expand their home libraries.
