In accordance with our school’s mission statement, Learning Support Services (LSS) exists to equip students to excel academically, spiritually, physically, emotionally and socially. It is our mission to provide all children with the right tools for optimal learning so they may be successful in and out of the classroom, working up to their fullest potential. We are committed to identifying and meeting the distinctive educational needs of each student through individualized educational programming by partnering with parents and teachers.
Our purpose in LSS is to partner with parents and teachers to ensure that our students are receiving instruction designed to meet their academic needs. In order to be successful with this, LSS works in collaboration with classroom teachers to best identify and assist students needing additional academic support. Along with providing students with various academic supports, LSS offers teachers resources and information that they can use in their classrooms to best support all of their students.
The tutoring program provides academic support to students with the help of trained volunteers to ensure success in the classroom.
