Please mark your calendar for this NEW Lockeland PTO Event!
Wednesday, July 26th from 10am - 11am at Lockeland Garden
We want the garden ready for the start of a new school year! Parents and students can volunteer time to pull weeds and refresh our school garden, while visiting old friends and maybe making some new ones. After our volunteer time gardening, unfold your blanket and open your packed picnic to enjoy your lunch with other Lockeland families.
Please come if you can and get the word out to your friends!
In case you missed the printed version of the PTO's 2016-2017 Annual Report that was sent home last week, check it out here!
We re-cap our fundraising, event, and volunteer successes. Thanks to everyone who made this year possible.
Join us in congratulating Principal Lewis on winning Principal of the Year, one of only three to receive this honor and award from MNPS. We are so proud!
Metro Schools hosted its annual Teacher of the Year awards on May 2, honoring 140 teachers and three principals for their hard work and dedication to Metro Schools.
The 140 teachers – one from every district-managed school – were chosen by their colleagues and principals as the epitome of a model educator. The Teacher of the Year program provides recognition to teachers on a district, regional, state and national level. To select the district-wide winners, teachers were scored on characteristics of a well-rounded educator including relationships with students, leadership and overall academic performance of students.
From the school-level winners, nine district-level finalists were selected – one winner and two runners-up from each school tier. District-level finalists for Principals of the Year and Substitute Teachers were also honored.
The three tier-level winners were included in the regional Teacher of the Year competition. Cicely Woodard, West End Middle Prep, is a regional finalist and is advancing to Tennessee Teacher of the Year with the potential to advance to the National Teacher of the Year in 2018.
Congratulations to all of the honorees! Click here to see the full list of winners.
