Hello iLEAD Families,
I hope you have received your login information and have accessed your learner’s reports of progress. Did you know our learner-led conferences are coming up! This is a time where your learner will demonstrate the skills they have been learning in class. This process makes it a more meaningful and reﬂective experience for both the child and the parent. Please look for updates on when your scheduled LLC date will be.
I wanted to thank all of you for your continued support and dedication to your learners and our iLEAD family. We have been knee deep in project development and creating new innovative projects for our learners to dive into. Some examples are: the Genes in Space project, the Maker Faire exposition and we are so excited to team up and explore with DreamUp, our space program. See the graphic below for more info!
We have enjoyed your learners and look forward to having them return next year. Please fill the forms out and return them as soon as possible. Tell your friends: our 2018-19 enrollment is now available online and in the office.

We can’t wait to hear from you!
Our iLEAD Lancaster second-graders had a fantastic presentation of learning (POL). They shared all their learning about dinosaur extinction, endangered species and brought awareness to those who came to their POL.
Driving Question: How can we use our knowledge of the extinction of dinosaurs to predict the survival of animals in the future?
Our second-graders explored the three theories of dinosaur extinction, and after learning about what might have killed the dinosaurs, our learners researched what is endangering our animals today. This mini-project led to learning about deforestation, pollution, and global warming. Each learner then chose an endangered species to study. Their task was to create a non-fictional book about their chosen animal. They also created costumes and habitat depictions as a part of their P.O.L. The other part of their presentation included a commercial asking people to please protect our earth and save our animals.
Although this project has come to an end, it is not finished. On Friday afternoon our second graders went out to the playground with trash grabbers, gloves and trash bags to collect litter from our playground. We had a fantastic discussion about how they felt after picking up all the litter and their words/feelings included: amazing, awesome, good, and happy. We hope this project will help inspire others to take care of our planet and protect our animals.

On Feb. 9, learners presented their project on the California Missions. There were four parts to the project: an informative paper, an artifact specific to their role, group table display of their mission and a costume.
Driving Question: How can I understand the origins of California from different perspectives?
Learners have begun brainstorming for their informative essay describing the perspectives from each group of people at the missions. They chose their role from either a Native American, Padre, Soldier or Craftsman.

Hello parents! We encourage the use of VALET for all drop-off and pickup for safety reasons. K-4 is a busy commerce street and we value the safety of our learners! Remember, if you are not using valet, all children should be walked to the front door by their parent/guardian. Learners without a chaperone will warrant a call home.
If you need clarification as to where to park please ask ANY iLEAD employee. PLEASE REMEMBER THAT TURNING LEFT INTO THE VALET ENTRANCE AND OUT OF THE EXIT IS A HAZARD TO BOTH YOUR VEHICLE AND OUR LEARNERS. IT IS ALSO A TRAFFIC PATTERN DISRUPTION.
Thank you for your cooperation in keeping our learners and your vehicles safe!
Do you have a learner who is shining in their community? Email email@example.com with their school name and what they are doing to make a difference.We want to share with our school community the difference makers on our campus!
We’ve seen an influx of Heelys on campus. Learners are zipping along the halls and on the play spaces. While we LOVE fun and seeing our learners enjoying themselves, we have to ask that they don’t use the wheels while at school. Please understand this is a safety concern for learners and staff. We want to prevent accidents and keep everyone safe. Heelys brand shoes can be worn, — just please remove the wheels for school.
General safety guidelines also include no skateboards or bicycles being ridden on campus; they must be carried and walked.
Thank you for your understanding and support!

There is ongoing litigation between the California Department of Education and the Concerned Parent Association. A notice issued by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson states, “The lawsuit accuses CDE of widespread, systemic non-compliance by local educational agencies with the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) and Section 504. The CDE denies these allegations and is actively defending the litigation.”
The court has ordered CDE to release student and parent information to provide personally identifiable information (PII) – an act that can only be taken as an exception to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA). As a result, we are providing notice of the court order and directions to anyone wishing to object.
Please be advised that CDE will notify parents or students of whom are required to disclose information and those individuals may object directly to the court regarding this disclosure using the PDF link below:
