Lester Park Elementary 2015 Family Survey: Now thru May 28
One way to help every student be successful is to build strong partnerships between families, the school and the community. This survey provides an opportunity to tell us what you think our school and school district is doing well to support these partnerships and what could be done better. The questions are based in part on a national survey created by the PTA and adapted for ISD 709.
The survey is confidential and takes about 15-20 minutes to complete. The information you provide will be used to improve our school. If there are any answers you don't know or questions to which you would prefer not to respond, simply skip those items. The link below will take you to the Lester Park Family Survey.
Your ideas matter - thank you for taking time to participate in this survey!
A NEW REPORT CARD
The District is moving to a Standards Based Report Card beginning the 2015-2016 school year. For the elementary schools this means there will only be 2 report cards issued for the year. They will also have a 'new look'. If you would like to see what's been done so far:
The district will continue to update information on this page of their web site.

Track and Field Day
The Back to School Fair is an event that we have been hosting for many years in partnership with the CHUM agency. This year the fair will be held on August 25th in the ALC Gym from 9-3. School supplies are provided to families that would have difficulty purchasing those items. In addition, the fair concept offers schools and community agencies an opportunity to share information that families may find valuable. We typically distribute over 700 backpacks on that day.
The Go Guide (Yellow Book) is posted on the District's web site on the Home page or click on the provided link.
