Mrs. Meyer has decided to resign from her position at Lake Country Academy and will not be returning to LCA at the end of her maternity leave, which was to be Monday, February 6th. She has made the difficult, but understandable, decision to stay home with her twin boys and 3-year-old daughter. Mrs. Meyer is a beloved middle school teacher and she will be dearly missed by both students, families, and staff members.
We are pleased to announce the hiring of Ms. Madalyn Brown as our new middle school math teacher. Ms. Brown comes to us with 6 years of teaching experience both in charter schools and traditional public schools, including both primary and middle school experience. She enjoys working in the middle school environment and is excited to teach math. Ms. Brown’s first day at LCA will be Monday, January 30 so that she can get acclimated with the school, our Saxon Math curriculum, and her students prior to starting teaching the following week.
This week our middle school students are the highlight of our week! Louis LaBouve, an 8th grader, was our spelling bee winner at LCA. He will be participating in the regional spelling bee this evening with other-city of Sheboygan students at Acuity. Good luck to Louis!
Our 6th and 7th-grade girls' basketball team has two games this week. Tonight they play at Urban Middle School and on Thursday they will be playing at LCA. They have been practicing hard, learning to play together, and working on staying aggressive on the court! We are looking forward to watching them grow as a team this season!
We will be hosting a school dance on Friday night for our middle school students, as well. This is our first dance since the pandemic and we are excited to provide this social opportunity for our students to come together and have some fun on the dance floor! Personally, I am excited to teach the students the "Electric Slide!"
Finally, our 8th Grade students have the fortunate opportunity tomorrow to go to the Milwaukee Rep to see the Shakespeare play "Much Ado About Nothing"! Our students explore a few Shakespearean plays throughout middle school, so this is a great tie-in to our Core Knowledge curriculum. Our 8th graders have also been working diligently on their National History Day projects. This Saturday they will be presenting their projects to judges for scoring and the opportunity to move on to the regional competition in the state. This year's theme is "Frontiers In History: People, Places, and Ideas." It is always a pleasure to see the creativity of our students as they create poster boards, websites, and papers based on their research.
We are certainly seeing our middle school students have positive experiences both socially and academically at LCA!
