Hello iLEAD Lancaster Families,
As the 2017-18 school year comes to a close I would like to take the time to thank you all for your continued support this year. We have many things to celebrate but a few of my favorite highlights are that we increased enrollment, which helps us to offer new exciting programs and experiences. We also had some beautiful presentations of learning where we witnessed lots of cross collaboration between grade levels. Our field studies to Rileys Farms, Outdoor Science school and inner city Los Angeles, just to name a few, have taught our learners a deeper understanding of their projects, leading to thoughtful presentations of learning. Our greatest accomplishment is that we became a “Leader in Me” school, which has helped us grow by leaps and bounds in our culture on campus. We have shown deeper interest in our social-emotional components of learning and in building a community of restorative practices. A big shout out to our wonderful staff for their dedication this year.
It’s been an adventurous first year as school director and I am looking forward to growing with you next year. I plan to enjoy the summer building on our calendars, staff development and future goals while enjoying some family time sharpening the saw. I hope to start this next school year with you on Aug. 21 at 8:30 a.m., with a proactive mindset and a drive to ensure all of you feel connected and supported. One of my goals for next year is to develop our STEAM integration and to develop more collaborative opportunities for our families. If you have ideas on how we can encourage parent involvement on campus please email us here.
I would like to close by thanking our amazing, small-but-mighty parent/volunteer group who is here day in and day out working tirelessly to assist facilitators, plan and implement events, booth in the community, and clean and repair our campus. Without you, our school wouldn’t be what it is, thank you.
Keep an eye on your email for our Monday Messages this summer. They won’t be every week but they will carry key information for your learner to be successful next year. Our Meet the Facilitator event will be held on Aug. 20. Save the date and watch for your invitation.
Thank you for an amazing year,
254 E. Avenue K-4
Lancaster, CA 93535

On June 7 iLEAD Lancaster was host to Empower Generations and Innovation Studios for their high school graduations. They were beautiful and full of future leaders. All of the iLEAD family wishes them best of luck in their future endeavors.

This past Friday, June 8, iLEAD 8th graders from both onsite and homeschool celebrated their learned character traits and accomplishments at a ceremony that was led by learners.
Please settle lunch accounts with Miss Brandy in the front office before summer break begins. The last day of school is this coming Friday, June 15. Please call 661-722-4287 for more information.
On Saturday, iLEAD AV and iLEAD Lancaster came together to host our annual end of year celebration: Backyard Bash. We played games, watched talented learners share their performances with us, viewed beautiful art pieces, enjoyed yummy food trucks, learners about the Leader in Me and how we could be supporters of culture on campus and we had a wonderful time celebrating the years accomplishments with family and friends. Thank you to all of our volunteers, staff, learners and families for attending and participating. The event would not have been a success without you.
We know you’ve been waiting. You may have noticed the new crosswalks as well as red curb along the front of the school. Many of you have still been parking on that red curb, and we assure you, more changes are coming. The Lancaster Sheriff’s Station has been in contact with us and they are patrolling the area; we would hate for our families to receive tickets for parking in lots that we are not allowed to park in, blocking traffic by stopping in the middle of the lane to let learners out at drop-off and for parking on red curbs. The City of Lancaster and is moving forward very soon with the rest of the install for our new pattern. Please pay special attention to detour signs and new traffic signage and patterns.
Tip of the week: Use valet to avoid most of the traffic. Valet will run from 8 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. These changes are to ensure the safety of our learners. Thank you in advance for your patience as we put learner safety first.

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:
