Alum Success

Maria DiValentin

"I chose to transfer to Lake Superior State University because of the personal attention I would receive. I did not want to attend a large university where I would be a number lost in the masses. The well-rounded curriculum allowed me to obtain my position at John Deere. Having a good balance of theory and hands-on knowledge is critical for my position and Lake State gave me a good foundation in these skills."

Success for Every Grade

Momentum Academy will propel 21st century students toward success in life through a focus on student achievement for college and workforce readiness.

Preschool students have been busy learning about the life cycle of a butterfly. They watched tiny caterpillars grown into large caterpillars, form a cocoon and hatch into butterflies. Each student participated in releasing the butterflies out into the world. Also each student created their own paint project to put on display for Art night. As we begin to close on this school year, each student will make graduation caps to wear on graduation day.

Kindergarteners have had a big year. They can recite the alphabet, identify letters, sounds, sight words, read books on grade level and write in daily journals. They have been explorers in the classroom identifying living and non-living things through the use of binoculars. They have toured the world by learning about countries, cultures and tasting various foods. These students have studied about the different types of animals and can classify them into the different animal groups. They are able to add, subtract, measure and identify 3D shapes. Kindergarteners have learned something very special this year which is friendship.

As we continuously monitor the growth goals of our students, second graders are showing their enthusiasm to be the best that they can be. 17% of our second grade students were advanced in ELA, 67% were proficient, 17% were basic and 0% were below basic! These growth goals are monitored every 30 days utilizing Data Director Assessments.

Third and Fourth graders have enjoyed success and encountered interesting experiences in recent months. Remediation efforts have resulted in raising Data Director computerized testing scores. Students are poised in continuing to make progress goals for the upcoming Scantron testing. They showed their artistic skills and teamwork while creating a sand mural for our Art show. They even braved the unknown by eating crickets during a lesson on cultural differences.

During our Art show, fifth and sixth graders showed the talent by decorating flower pots. As these students are preparing to take the final series of the Scantron test, they are also focused on learning about Citizenship involvement and Public issues. Our goal is to end the school year by achieving higher testing scores than previously tested.

"LSSU is a relatively small school and I believe for this reason I have received a better education. The close atmosphere as opposed to a larger university has provided me with an opportunity to become acquainted with my professors. The professors therefore have an opportunity to assist with problems fairly easily, especially in upper level classes. The classes are fairly small also which provides one on one conversations which is very helpful."
