Monday, September 13th wass 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! https://youtu.be/5L4DQfVIcdg

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!
