#LovelandLearning at LIS
In this special series, we talked academics with each building principal to really understand what #LovelandLearning is all about.
Loveland City School District (LCSD): At LIS, what is your team doing really well to promote academic achievement for students?
Garth Carlier (GC): At LIS we are constantly looking at meeting the needs of students at all levels of achievement. We have an increased amount of students receiving gifted services through our Gifted ELA class and during Tiger Time with Mrs. Kristi Swartz for grades five and six. In addition to this, we have added a fifth grade gifted math class this year taught by Ms. Amy Bush. The needs of our students continue to change throughout the years, and it is our job to keep creating opportunities for our students to grow academically.
LCSD: What do you hope to work on?
GC: Our Building Leadership Team is continuing to work with departments on improving instruction and keeping best-practice conversations going. It is key for our teachers to continue to improve their instruction by collaborating with their peers. This work, in turn, helps students continue to achieve academic success.
LCSD: What academic accomplishment are you most proud of at LIS?
GC: As a building, we are continuing to see increased achievement in reading and math on our Measures of Academic Progress (MAP) assessments. These assessments are given three times a year and students, parents, and teachers can see their growth throughout the year.
Here is a look at the academic programs offered at Loveland Intermediate School:
The combination of academic achievement, and providing opportunities for students to be a part of something bigger is an important focus for LIS. Many students participate in activities in and out of the classroom at LIS. All students are offered core academic classes (ELA, math, science, and social studies), music classes, art and physical education throughout the school day. Outside of the school day activities include Flag Football (fifth grade), Runners Club (fifth and sixth), and Student Council (fifth and sixth). There is always a high percentage of participation in all of our activities. LIS is a place for students to grow in all aspects of development.
