Dear Parents, Guardians, and Community Members,
The 2014-2015 school year is off to a great start at Southeastern School Corporation!
To highlight some of the new things happening this year are the eleven AP course offerings at Lewis Cass, which include Biology, Chemistry, English Language, English Literature, Calculus, US History, Physics I, Environmental Science, Psychology, German, and Spanish. We offer thirteen dual credit courses in house at Lewis Cass. Also for dual credit opportunities, we partner with two career centers. The Logansport Career Center and the Kokomo Career Center are choices our students have for dual credit classes that we do not offer in house. We have also enhanced our STEM curriculum by offering a brand new Project Lead the Way class in Computer Science and Software Engineering. In addition to our new PLTW course, we still offer Gateway to Technology, Introduction to Engineering, and Principles of Engineering. Our students are also able to experience several elective courses in Ag, Family and Consumer Science, Art, Music, Band, and Physical Education. We also have a strong athletic program, FFA program (which has 4 students competing in a National competition this fall), Band, and Academic teams as well as a new team…the robotics team!
Our new King’s Academy, which services the needs of our students in grades 6-12 for credit recovery as well as helping them to get back on track is functioning very well. We have 2 “Super Seniors” who have graduated and since the start of school our students who attend the King’s Academy for 3 hours a day have earned a total of 14 credits in the first 7 weeks of school. The King’s Academy has a morning session and an afternoon session staffed by a full-time teacher and a paraprofessional as well as a social worker which is provided by a partnership with Four County Counseling of Cass County.
The new Band Annex is in the process of being finished for our band students to use for practice in inclement weather as well as a place to store band props. The Annex was fully funded by the Band Boosters and now the focus of our band boosters is to work on raising the necessary funds to send our Lewis Cass Marching Kings to the Macy’s Day Parade in 2015.
This is only a small snapshot of the great things happening at Southeastern School Corporation. Feel free to contact any of our schools, Thompson Elementary, Galveston Elementary or Lewis Cass Jr/Sr High School to find out more of the programs that are happening in each school that promote academic rigor and excellence!
