nurturing atmosphere for all students. Parent involvement and support at Lotts are unsurpassed.
We are truly fortunate to have the outstanding support provided by parents who believe
that education is of extreme importance and are willing to partner with us to make our
school the very best it can be. In addition, we are privileged to
have excellent support from community members and businesses.
Announced this past March as the grand-prize winner of ORAU’s 2013 Extreme Classroom Makeover, Fultz received a $25,000 grant to outfit her classroom with the latest in educational technologies, such as iPads, MacBook Pros and ActivExpression responders.
The 5th grade teacher from A. L. Lotts has been working diligently throughout the summer to select her new technology, install it in her classroom, integrate it into her new Common Core inspired lesson plans and prepare for her new class of rising 5th graders. (Read More)
"Our mission is to enable all students to achieve their personal best."
We believe that a child’s experience at A. L. Lotts is the beginning of a learning process that includes:
* High academic standards guided by research-based data
* The desire to learn
* The achievement of one’s personal best
* The confidence to succeed
* The development of study skills that encourage independence
* The development of personal responsibility and respect for one’s self and others
* A partnership between community and school
* A positive learning environment that is nurturing, safe, and structured
Our vision is a continuously renewed effort to enable students and staff to achieve
their personal best. As students, standards, and guidelines change, we want to
continually assess progress and adjust methods and expectations accordingly.
This will require growth for all concerned which will include the movement toward
the use of technology in an increasingly purposeful manner.
