Below is my weekly message for Kolling Elementary.
Quarter 1 Report Cards
First quarter report cards are now available for viewing on Skyward.
When sending a note to school regarding dismissal instructions or any other information for your child, please be sure to write it on a large enough size paper to assure it does not get lost amongst the other school paperwork. We have been receiving some parent notes on small sized sticky notes or even smaller pieces of paper and it is very easy for that size to fall out of piles or get lost. Also, be sure to include your child’s first AND last name as well as the teacher name on all parent notes. Thank you for your assistance in this matter.
Bully Prevention Program Update
* Students created an enormous orange paper chain with their signatures to support our October theme of Unite Against Bullying. In addition, all students have signed an individual paper figure which is being displayed on our cafeteria bulletin board. To see a picture of our board, lot on to our district website: http://lcsc.us/
Special thanks to our PTO moms who are doing an amazing job helping Mrs. Adank and Mrs. Neal keep up with our year long bully prevention efforts.
* Monday, November 7th will be the date of our whole school picture. Students and staff are asked to wear something orange for our picture. The St. John Fire Department will be assisting us this year.
* Special thanks to our specials teachers who joined in to support our anti bullying efforts by including bully prevention activities in their rooms these past weeks.
Kolling staff & students are uniting in our efforts to stop bullying!

Between Home and School
Lake Central School Coporation has added three new resources in order to improve communication between students, teachers, parents, administrators, and the community.
Below is a short summary of what each system provides for parents and students. If you need information on how to create an account, please contact the Kolling main office at 219.365.8577.
Use Skyward to monitor grades, print report cards, monitor attendance, and access student enrollment information. You will need your child’s school ID to create your Canvas account. If you have a child in grades 3-12, you will also need your child’s LC email address to access Canvas. You can find both of those on Skyward. If you forgot your skyward login information, please email Kolling’s data secretary at email@example.com.
The Skyward login address is listed below:
This is an important account for parents to get classroom information on assignments, due dates, and access to student/parent resources being posted by your child’s teacher. This account replaces teacher websites. There is an attachment with step-by-step directions to set up parent Canvas accounts. To access this attachment, click here:
