National Young Leaders State Conference Provides Framework for the Nation’s Future WASHINGTON, D.C. – This year, outstanding students from across the nation will take part in a unique leadership development program being held in 30 cities across the country. Themed Courageous Leadership, the National Young Leaders State Conference (NYLSC) helps young scholars take an introspective and highly-personalized assessment of their leadership skills and abilities. Nominated by their teachers, two of our LES 6th grade students, Robert Foglesong and Garrett Greenwood, attended the Conference in Austin.

Upcoming Events: Friday April 12 Dinner Theatre @ Elem. Gym “The Prime of Miss Jean Brodie” 6:00pm Saturday April 13 ACT – Check in 7:30am Lyon Ctr. Wednesday April 17 TAKS/ STAAR Training Thursday April 18 Kinder Music Performance @ 6:00pm Elem. Cafeteria / Chick Fil ANight Friday April 19 Texas Cavaliers Visit @ 8:00am

Throughout the four-day program, students build a working “toolkit” of strategies to help them successfully dream, create, and implement plans that will change how they view their role as leaders in their communities. At the Austin conference, Robert and Garrett's groups also focused on topics like: conflict resolution, teamwork and team building, how to handle cliques, and event planning. “The steps each person takes in discovering his or her own leadership strengths can be a very personal process,” said Marguerite Regan, Ph.D., Dean of Academic Affairs for the Congressional Youth Leadership Council (CYLC), the organization that sponsors NYLSC. “The National Young Leaders State Conference will help students get at the heart of their innate talents and skills and will also help them toidentify how they can best serve their communities.” The NYLSC curriculum focuses on an introspective and highly-personalized assessment of each student’s leadership skills and abilities. Attendees will be challenged to step forward in a manner that is decisive and confident, to grasp the concepts of leadership that will be taught and to act upon their dreams of making a difference in the world while maintaining the courage of their convictions. The Congressional Youth Leadership Council is a nonpartisan educational organization. Founded in 1985, CYLC is committed to fostering and inspiring young people to achieve their full leadership potential. For additional information, visit us at www.cylc.org

Science in SFA

Page 3 of 10 April 12, 2013

Students in Mr. Garcia’s 6.2 SFA class got an up close look at organisms and microscopic creatures as they learn about cells and their structure and many functions. Using digital and traditional microscopes they viewed a variety of prepared slides then wrote descriptions of what they saw. Some were amazed to see living organisms not viewable to the naked eye from soil and plant samples they found right here on campus.

As I say goodbye to you all, and leave Lackland ISD, I want to thank you for so many memories. Thank you…         

To the coaches and students, for letting me play dodgeball with you. To the librarians, for letting me pretend to nap on the couch in the library. To the nurses, who always were kind whenever I had a concern. To the custodians, who were my lifeline in the classroom and good friends. To the maintenance staff, who talked football with me, and always helped me. To the administration, for allowing me the privilege of being a part of LISD. To the teachers, for being kind, compassionate and friendly, no matter what. To the 5th grade team, for being my second family. To the students, for being the reason why I got out of bed each weekday.

I will miss you all, but wish each and every one of you success in education and life. ~ Ms. Fohlmeister
