End-of-year field trips are particularly engaging this year. Youngest students will enjoy We Rock the Spectrum indoor play gym. Older students will enjoy a visit from Cool Critters animal outreach or entertaining science experiences courtesy of Mad Science. Middle School students will solve problems in the fictional city of STEMville through a visiting program from Cincinnati Museum Center.
Field Day, this year, will be inside the LGS Main building and newly installed Middle School Building to avoid distractions from Brood X cicadas. Students will participate in games ranging from a sensory room obstacle course to a penny-stacking competition. And all will enjoy a post-competition snow cone from Mr. Snowie!
At LGS annual awards ceremonies, every student receives a Certificate of Recognition personalized according to their greatest accomplishments and strengths. Sample recognitions include: Super Storyteller, Energetic Learner, Most Improved in Handwriting and Vocabulary Guru. Awards ceremonies include students, staff, and immediate family members and are filled with wild applause, whoops and hollers, and a few teary eyes.
The most anticipated end of year event is, of course, graduation! Class of 2021 members will receive their diplomas and accolades inside, and then enjoy an outdoor procession down an aisle formed by cheering LGS staff.
