"Every change starts in a small step"  -Ron Stolero

Welcome to Lake Stevens School District's own collection of resources and ideas around the English Language Arts Common Core State Standards.  This site has been created with the vision that we can share ideas, questions and tools for implementation.  

Our new Moodle site for Units of Study for 3rd-5th grade and other resources can be found at this link.  Check in August, 2014 for units to be open to view and explore.

You can find our new LSSD Elementary Philosophy Statement and related supporting documents here.
