Lancer Pride Expectations

 You Just Can’t Hide That Lancer Pride! Achieve Academically

Promote a Positive Attitude

Initiate Action

It is the goal of all members of the LUMS community to maintain a safe and effective learning environment. LUMS has a proactive team-based framework where emphasis is placed on prevention of problem behavior, development of prosocial skills, and use of data-informed problem solving. Our Lancer Pride Expectations promote our core values of respect, responsibility, and safety, and our commitment to being firm, fair and consistent.  Part of building our school community is to help all members learn how to be proud Lancers. To help in this goal we have three Lancer Pride Expectations that are listed above.

Expectations for Achieving Academically

  • Organization - Students organize themselves through consistent use of assignment notebooks, and they find materials efficiently.

  • Work completion/revision - Students complete all class and homework assignments to the best of their ability, including work missed due to absences.

  • Preparation - Students come to class with necessary materials (i.e. textbook, assignments notebook, paper, pencil or pen etc.)

  • Time Management - Students effectively use all available study time throughout the day and outside of schoool for academic purposes.

  • Study Skills - Students work in collaborative groups, recognize the need for study partners, seek out help from others when needed, and identify and utilize study strategies as needed.

Expectations for Promoting a Positive Attitude
