Welcome to Lessenger Elementary

Message from Principal Sosin

Welcome to Lessenger Elementary School!  We at Lessenger are dedicated to creating and fostering a compassionate school family, promoting high expectations and igniting every student’s natural curiosity.  Our students will develop a lifelong love of learning by acquiring academic and social skills, to become confident, critical thinkers in society.  We are working  to nurture a love of learning in each child that enters our doors.


The partnership between parents and schools is vital to the success of students.  We are incredibly fortunate to have strong family and community supports for our students at Lessenger.  As a team, we work together to hold ourselves and our students to high standards as we prepare for the future.


Please browse our website or call for a tour if you’d like to learn more about our award winning school!


Warmly,

Jackie Sosin


Read by Grade Three

Read by Grade 3 Lamphere logoIn 2016, the Michigan Legislature passed a law that requires schools to identify learners who are struggling with reading and writing and to provide additional help. The law states that third graders may repeat third grade if they are more than one grade level behind beginning with the 2019-2020 school year. 

We've posted some resources and Facts for Families on our Curriculum Department website to help families understand the Read by Grade Three Law so they can support their child.  You will find a variety of videos and fact sheets from the Michigan Department of Education and reading tip sheets for parents of toddlers through third grade students.  Please be sure to check back often as we'll be updating this site with more info and activities to strengthen our youngest learners reading, writing and comprehension skills.

If you have any questions regarding the Third Grade Reading Law, please contact Jane Jurvis, Lamphere's Director of Curriculum and Instruction.  Email: jurvisj@lamphereschools.org or phone (248) 589-1990
