Paraprofessional Education Week in Minnesota is January 25th-31st.

Paraprofessionals work in a variety of positions such as; instructional assistants, Title I, pupil support assistants, special education, job coaches, lunch room and playgr
ound assistants, hall monitors and media center assistants. Many teacher assistants work primarily or exclusively with students who have special educational needs. Their duties vary according to the needs of the student from physical assistance and care to behavioral management and academic assistance.

We would like sincerely thank all of the paraprofessionals for the support and care they provide at LSH!
Thank You Chalkboard
Boards Look to MSBA for Leadership  
Where does a school board go when they want to put a face on its true mission? The Minnesota School boards Association (MSBA) Annual Leadership Conference. 

Where do they go to learn how other school boards in the state are dealing with ever changing policies and trends that are impacting their main role of governance in the district? The MSBA Annual Leadership Conference.

Where can they go to hear testimonials about the most important aspects of a great classroom? The MSBA Annual Leadership Conference.

Where can they experience the future – the place where our students will spend the rest of their lives – a place where school board directors will never see – a place where every new sunrise will bring advances in technology to reinforce the importance of life-long learning? The MSBA Annual Leadership Conference.

Where can they go to learn that leadership does matter? Yes, the MSBA Annual Leadership Conference. 

This year, as is our practice, the Le Sueur – Henderson School Board was well represented at this year’s annual conference and took advantage of the opportunity to listen to, learn with and network with educational leaders and fellow school board members. 

If those in charge don’t get it, it’s not going to happen, said keynote speaker Jeff Charbonneau who stressed that hands-on involvement from students is so crucial.

Great teachers, great leadership and great classrooms are the key. These teachers become mentors who stand beside students every step of their road into the future. While these leaders are not there in a physical sense, their words of encouragement from the past define the path to greatness for these former students.

- Retail & Business Expo (March 26, 2015). The LSH booth will be staffed by School Board Members. It will be a great opportunity for the community to meet and talk with Board Members.
