Lakers were looking tough in their Above the Line shirts!
It's the first Lake Effect Day of 2022! Students are learning how to step up and help others in today's lesson about fighting the urge to be a bystander.

Lake Effect Day
The Lake Effect took hold at the high school on Monday! Students and staff members wore their Above the Line shirts and watched a touching video about giving the gift of kindness and how they can do that in their everyday lives. What a great message for the holiday season!! ILMS and ILES classrooms participated as well. The first Monday of every month is a Lake Effect Day at Indian Lake Schools when we continue our R-Factor training.

Check out the video

It's the Lake Effect on Monday Morning! Students will be considering how "your Response (R) creates an Event (E) for others."
Check out this short video to learn more on Monday, October 4, 2021.

In addition to watching the video and having an R-Factor lesson, ILMS students who are new the school received an Above the Line shirt since they didn't get one last year!
Lake Effect DayLake Effect Day Monday, September 13th was the first district-wide Lake Effect Day of the school year! Lakers from all across the district remembered to wear their Above the Line shirts or Laker colors.
Our yearlong theme is The Edge - See What Is Possible. All of our students will be watched this video and continued their R-Factor training today and throughout the year.
Let's get started!

IL District Curriculum and Gifted Coordinator Kelli Tebbe says, "The Lake Effect Day creates an opportunity for every student and staff member in the district to intentionally experience a common message.  These messages help to teach and remind us of what it means to be a Laker and promotes a culture where we know how to behave with discipline to stay above the line.  Seeing so many staff and students wearing their shirts shows that we are unified and growing together." 

Going forward, Lake Effect Days will be a coordinated district effort once a month, usually on the first Monday we are in school. Everyone who wears their shirt on these designated days will receive a Laker Card (ILMS, ILHS) or Laker Zone Card (ILES) as a reward. 

In addition to Lake Effect Day, each building and grade level is implementing R-Factor lessons regularly. 

Finally, any Laker community member who purchased an Above the Line shirt is encouraged to wear it on these select Mondays and watch the video presentations that will be posted!

Let's live Above the Line, Lakers!
