4TH Grade Crosswalk Guards
Lakehoma Elementary Student Crosswalk: Students who are chosen are used to aide in the safety of students crossing the front parking lot at Lakehoma. Our hired crosswalk attendant helps students cross Cedar Springs Rd. Then a student crosswalk guard helps students cross the parking lot through the designated crosswalk area. Fourth grade students are chosen once per quarter. A short meeting is held and students are trained and given a schedule with their assigned day/time. They are also shown where to access their safety equipment (vest & stop sign). The students enjoy this responsibility and it is also a great way to engage parents in the school day. Typically, a student serves one duty per week; either in the a.m. (7:15-7:40) or after school (2:35-2:50). Students are presented with a certificate during a short celebration at the end of their duty term.
Lakehoma Leaders are 4th grade students which exhibit leadership qualities that set a great example for others. Some of the duties of Lakehoma Leaders include, but are not limited to:
· North Drive morning duty (help students unload from car and greet them)…
· Recycling (this is done during recess one day a week or every other week)
· Help with errands and delivery for office and counselors
· Help with Red Ribbon Week
· Help with the Food Drive
· Any other needed times
There are two Lakehoma Leaders per 4th grade classroom. Lakehoma Leaders are in office for the entire school year unless they are unable/unwilling to perform the duties in a satisfactory manner; grades drop below C; and behavior warrants multiple trips to office or any out of school suspension.
Lakehoma Honor Choir
Our Lakehoma Honor Choir consists of a group of select 4th graders who want to continue singing and performing, who will broaden their knowledge of music and gain a further appreciation for music. Honor Choir will meet after school from 2:35 to 3:30 on Mondays. Dates will be posted later.
4th grade students are able to be a Helping Hand at Lakehoma. Students get to work with students in younger grades. 4th graders may be a Helping Hand IF they have homework turned in consistently; work is completed in class consistently; and, if behavior is not an issue. Students will work no more than three days per week, during recess time. This is a voluntary program and is beneficial to both the Helping Hand student and the students in the younger grades.
Girls On The Run
3rd and 4th grade girls can participate in Girls on the Run in the Spring Semester. GOTR is a nonprofit organization that works to help girls with positive self esteem and life skills while working towards running a 5k. They will meet twice weekly for 10 weeks before completing the 5k race. Look for more information from 3rd and 4th grade teachers.
