Lakeridge Annual Pink Week is happening this week,
October 26th-30th.
Pink Week is a Philanthropy event raising money for people affected by breast cancer as part of breast cancer awareness month. Typically, we walk around the halls with jars collecting donations, which we cannot do this year :(, so we have opted to collect donations online! We have set up a GoFundMe with all of the proceeds going directly to the local organization Breast Friends. Any and all donations will be GREATLY appreciated in lieu of our normal traditions. Here is the link to the GoFundMe: https://www.gofundme.com/f/pacers-in-pink-lakeridge-pink-week-2020?utm_source=customer&utm_medium=copy_link&utm_campaign=p_cf+share-flow-1

We will also be selling "Pacers in Pink" ribbon stickers on our Pacer Spirit Wear website, with all of those proceeds going to Breast Friends, and offering discounted Pink Week hats and Pink Lakeridge Sweatshirts so you can get in the Pink Week spirit! Thank you so much for your donations and support, we greatly appreciate it!

October is Dyslexia Awareness Month 

What is Oregon’s State of Mind on Dyslexia?

Oregon developed its first legislative guidelines for dyslexia in 2015 with the passing of Senate Bill 612 followed by 1003 in 2017. By law each school is required to complete a universal screening on all kindergarten and first grade students to identify those who are at risk for dyslexia. This law also mandates that each K-5 school have an extensively-trained educator who is able to recognize the warning signs of dyslexia and support students, teachers, parents, and the community. LOSD currently uses Dibels as our dyslexia screening tool. If you have more questions please reach out to your school’s literacy specialist.

There also are three major federal laws that directly affect children with dyslexia. They are the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA), Section 504 of the Rehabilitation Act, and the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA). 

Oregon Department of Education Dyslexia Resources: Oregon Department of Education : Dyslexia : Regional Programs and Best Practices : State of Oregon

Gifted and Dyslexic?

Some kids with learning and attention difficulties have exceptional skills in certain areas. These kids are often called “twice-exceptional” (2E) learners. 

 

LOSD Student Services and TAG (Talented & Gifted) Services are both responsible and should work in cooperation to meet the needs of twice-exceptional students. The student’s abilities will determine appropriate instruction. 

To read about twice exceptional students, visit UNDERSTOOD.ORG:

Twice-Exceptional Students | 2E Learners | Gifted and Learning Disabilities

Each week this month, we featured a message about dyslexia in this newsletter. If you have questions or concerns regarding our child’s learning, please call the school principal, TAG coordinator, and/or literacy specialist. You can also contact your school’s representatives for TAG-AC (TAG Advisory Committee) or SSPAC (Student Services Parent Advisory Committee). Please see here to learn how to contact your school representative.

We are here to help you and your child succeed. 

 

Tech Info Sessions

Our LOSD Logic Team focused on the basic “how tos'' for getting started with distance learning.  Feel free to check out the recordings and presentations posted on the district site under Resources/Technology for Families.

If things go Wrong!! Tech Support Ticket

A majority of concerns can be resolved by submitting a Tech Support ticket -- the link is on all school and the district homepages for easy access to getting help with passwords, log-ins, hardware fixes, etc.
