Welcome to Lansing Elementary School District 158! We hope that you will find our website and its various forms of information useful to you. We are proud of our community and the students our school system serves. Each of our schools - Lester Crawl Primary Center, Calvin Coolidge School, Oak Glen School, W.C. Reavis School and Memorial Junior High School are staffed by highly qualified, dedicated faculty and support personnel, who are committed to providing a challenging academic experience in a safe and nurturing environment for the students of our community.
We believe in accountability and are proud of our students' continued growth as we continue to close the achievement gap according to the goal of the No Child Left Behind law. Each year we present to our families an update of how our students performed on the ISAT exam, share local assessment data and post the power point presentation on our website.
New for the 2012-2013 school year is the implementation of One-to-One Computing which provides for integration of technology throughout our curriculum. We have also extended our school day at Memorial Junior High to provide an additional structured period that supports our students by providing assistance with homework assignments, pursue research in the Learning Resource Center, improve math and reading skills using the District's on-line interactive learning programs, and pursue personal reading interests. In addition, students may choose to be involved in band, choir, and extra-curricular events without missing core classes. We have implemented Power School, a student information system designed to help parents stay connected with their child's teachers.
Our district is also in the process of renovating/expanding Oak Glen Elementary School and W.C. Reavis Elementary School. Please view the preliminary plans and the latest construction pictures on our website.
This recently revised web site is a key component of our school district's goal to enhance communication with our parents, community members, and those who may be interested in becoming future citizens of our great Village. We fully recognize and hope to share with you the outstanding instructional staff, administrators, and support personnel whose efforts and expertise continue to create the positive learning environments that thrive in our schools. Their efforts, in partnership with our supportive parents who characterize our community, and a Board of Education committed to providing an exceptional education for all the children of our community, combine to continue the tradition of excellence that has been associated with Lansing Elementary School District 158's belief in Putting the Children First!
