Milo's messages-These messages are as much for the adults in the community as they are for our students.  We can all work together to demonstrate and model these traits for our young people.  
Milo's message this week is about Trust.  
Trust is a big deal that involves a lot of emotion as well as behaviors.  We ask ourselves how can we show others we trust them and how can we show others we are trustworthy?  We can demonstrate both of these by having integrity, keeping confidences and following through on our own promises.
Good conversation starters:  How did someone show they are trustworthy today?  How did you demonstrate you are trustworthy today?

This week's Message from Milo is Love One Another
What does this look like in Redbird Country?  This could look like helping other students or staff with a task.  It could be holding a door open for someone who has their hands full.  It could be helping someone carry a lot of items from one place to another.  It could be eating lunch with someone who is eating alone.  There are many ways we can all show love and grace toward each other.  Tell everyone how you helped someone this week!

This week's Milo's Message is Be Positive.  This is a great way to start the year-committing to being positive about situations and people.  A positive attitude can change the outcome of a situation for the better!  Let's be positive and have a great year!

We would like to thank everyone who participated in the creation of our first strategic Goals Package.  This is a document that contains many goals.  These goals are what we use to guide us into the future.  This is a flexible document that will be updated yearly.  Each goal listed in the document provides the staff and community with an idea of where we want the district to be in the next three years.  It provides the vision of what we want the district to look like in the future.  This document is not a "set in stone" kind of document.  It functions as a guide.  The document attached is in draft form at this time.  Updates will be posted here.  To view the Goals Package, click HERE.
Thank you again for your all your time and effort in assisting us with this process.
On behalf of L-P Schools,
Catherine Puster
