Lenox Elementary School
Welcome to Lenox Elementary School!
At Lenox Elementary School, we are truly blessed with a great community, great staff members, and especially great students! Our mission is to provide a safe and challenging environment for student growth in knowledge, character and life skills, and our Lenox family works to uphold this mission each and every day. Our students continue to demonstrate growth in knowledge on Iowa Assessments, averaging 87% proficiency in reading and 88% proficiency in math. Our students demonstrate growth in character and life skills through our PBIS (Positive Behavioral Interventions and Supports) initiative. Each day, our staff and students work to recognize great habits and strengths in each other and to continually grow our own positive habits. We set clear expectations and work to exceed them each day.
This school year, our team set an especially rigorous goal: At least 80% of the students will be proficient on their fluency and comprehension scores by the spring of 2020 according to the FAST data results. To meet this goal, all of our students and staff will collaborate, track individual and group progress, and celebrate growth. Our staff members also identified three Big Rocks, three areas of focus for the school year that will lead our work:
1. Building Positive Relationships
2. Collaboration with ALL for Student Success
3. Core Literacy: Curriculum, Instruction, Assessment and Intervention
At Lenox Elementary, this year’s theme is, “Game On.” This theme exemplifies the greatness in what our school has accomplished in the past and the challenges still ahead, while recognizing that we are up for the challenge and ready to make positive growth! We will continue to offer our students as many advantages as we can including our EXCEL program, where students can get assistance after school on homework and reaching learning targets.
We invite parents, caretakers and the community to be involved in our school initiatives and to help us celebrate our staff and students as we continue to strive for and reach new goals! #LearningGameOn
Our door is always open,
