09/12/21 LSK8 Weekly Update

Good evening, Licton Springs K-8 Families

We hope you are having a great weekend.  We will be kicking off our first five-day school week with a Spirit Week!

Spirit Week:  Students can show their school spirit by participating in the each day’s theme.  Here they are:

  • Monday:  Cozy Day.  Wear pajamas or your coziest clothes.
  • Tuesday:  College Day.  Wear gear or colors of your favorite college or university. 
  • Wednesday:  Crazy Hair Day.  This one speaks for itself.  Make that hair crazy for our early release day.
  • Thursday:  School Colors Day.  Show your pride with Maroon and Black!
  • Friday:  Favorite Sports Team:  Wear the gear or colors of your favorite sports team.

Associated Student Body (ASB):  It’s that time of year again! We are ready to begin our ASB elections for the 2021-2022 school year. Here are the details:

  • For 7/8th graders, we will have openings for President, Vice President, Secretary, Treasurer, and Class Representative/Alternate.
  • For grades 3-6th, we will have 1 class representative/alternate from each grade (K-2 classrooms will be paired with an older representative).
  • Students will need to record themselves giving a 1-2 minute speech on:
    • What position you want to run for and why (don’t forget to include your name)
    • 1 thing you love about our school
    • 1 improvement you want to see with our school
  • They can record their speeches on the Flipgrid located at this link https://flipgrid.com/be75d5b1
  • Students have until 9/26 at 5:00 PM to submit their video to enter into the race. Once all videos have been submitted, your class will watch them and vote the week of 9/27 and results will be announced by the end of the week.

Good luck! Please contact Dante if you have any questions.
