Happy Monday Imagine Lakewood Ranch Families,
We hope you are all doing well and having a good start to your Monday.
We are two weeks from April being over and it feels like we just started. Please know that these 6 weeks left of school are so important and crucial for our students. We ask that you continue to partner with your child’s teacher by assisting with monitoring homework assignments and taking time to practice lessons learned in your child’s class. This last quarter seems very short and we want the students to continue to feel that they are being successful academically.

SELAH FREEDOM STUDENT TRAINING – Friday, May 5th-Florida State Statute 1003.42 (2)(n) requires Florida Schools (grades K-12) to provide comprehensive health education instruction on various topics. To meet the requirements of this state statute, ISLWR has partnered with Selah Freedom, a community organization whose founders have partnered with law enforcement, legislators, and influential leaders to develop their programs, which include awareness and prevention. Selah Freedom’s team will present their district-approved prevention program content to ISLWR students on Friday, May 5th. The program will equip our scholars with awareness and ways to stay safe from child abuse, exploitation, and child trafficking. This program follows an age appropriate curriculum and will be delivered during one of your child’s special classes. For more information about this program, please visit https://selahfreedom.com/prevention/ .
Also, if you would like to opt your child out of participating in the program, please complete the opt out form using this link: https://forms.gle/iNjpt8GUzcyWmJsb9
We want 100% of our ISLWR students to be confident in these areas and we are fortunate to have trained Selah Freedom experts to support our goal!
