Lockeland Dreamin'...Thank you for your support!
Dear Lockeland Families -
InvestLDC! is off to an AMAZING start with over $15,000 in donations and pledges representing about 35% of our students. WOW!
The InvestLDC! Campaign continues through the month of August, but the PTO will accept contributions all year long. Our fundraising efforts with InvestLDC! and City Saver start early in the school year to better help the PTO plan for the entire year. It is worth communicating that City Saver is the ONLY item asked to be sold this year. While the PTO is tasked with raising money, this group of parents will focus more on community building and supporting fun events and activities starting the middle of September. All the parent support makes a big difference in the life of Lockeland.
"The money that the PTO supplies is an amazing privilege and one my team and I do not take lightly. We have used it in a variety of ways, from purchasing chart paper to stamp pads to larger items like easels. Lockeland is such a unique school and the added funds allow us to enhance and tailor our curriculum to our students needs.” - Lockeland Kindergarten Teacher

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.
