The National Center for Educational Achievement (NCEA), a department of ACT, Inc., recognized LOE as a
2012 NCEA Higher Performing School. LOE recieved Higher Performing (HP) recognition in the following areas:
That's the best way to describe yesterday's blood drive. We broke the all time record for blood collections at LOES with 89 units collected. The previous high was 84. A technical glitch that stopped progress for a period of time yesterday cost us a handful of donors. Those donors would have most likely put us over the mark of 90 that we had set as a challenge goal. Your students did a great job recruiting donors to help save lives.

We are excited to introduce The Leader in Me. A whole-school transformation model that acts like the operating system of a computer — it improves performance of all other programs. Based on The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People®, The Leader in Me produces transformational results such as higher academic achievement, fewer discipline problems, and increased engagement among teachers and parents. Better yet,The Leader in Me equips students with the self-confidence and skills they need to thrive in the 21st century economy. Ask your child about the seven habit (listed below) and ways you can incorporate them in your home. Look for more information in the future..
The First Three Habits surround moving from dependence to independence (i.e., self-mastery):
- Habit 1: Be Proactive
Take initiative in life by realizing that your decisions (and how they align with life's principles) are the primary determining factor for effectiveness in your life. Take responsibility for your choices and the consequences that follow.
- Habit 2: Begin with the End in Mind
Self-discover and clarify your deeply important character values and life goals. Envision the ideal characteristics for each of your various roles and relationships in life. Create a mission statement.
- Habit 3: Put First Things First
Prioritize, plan, and execute your week's tasks based on importance rather than urgency. Evaluate whether your efforts exemplify your desired character values, propel you toward goals, and enrich the roles and relationships that were elaborated in Habit 2.
The next three have to do with Interdependence (i.e., working with others):
- Habit 4: Think Win-Win
Genuinely strive for mutually beneficial solutions or agreements in your relationships. Value and respect people by understanding a "win" for all is ultimately a better long-term resolution than if only one person in the situation had gotten his way.
- Habit 5: Seek First to Understand, Then to be Understood
Use empathic listening to be genuinely influenced by a person, which compels them to reciprocate the listening and take an open mind to being influenced by you. This creates an atmosphere of caring, and positive problem solving.
- Habit 6: Synergize
Combine the strengths of people through positive teamwork, so as to achieve goals no one person could have done alone.
The Last habit relates to self-rejuvenation:
- Habit 7: Sharpen the Saw
Balance and renew your resources, energy, and health to create a sustainable, long-term, effective lifestyle. It primarily emphasizes exercise for physical renewal, prayer (meditation, yoga, etc.) and good reading for mental renewal. It also mentions service to society for spiritual renewal.
Below are the 4-H meeting dates for both groups. They will meet from 3:30-4:45 in the art room. Parents need to send a note when their child is going to stay after school for the meeting.

WATCH D.O.G.S. (Dads of Great Students) is a program where fathers, step-fathers, grandfathers, uncles, or any father-figure of a LOES student are invited to come and spend the day volunteering in classrooms, serving as a positive male role model and helping with school duties. Students are very excited to have the WATCH D.O.G.S. help out in their classrooms and the faculty and staff at LOES are appreciative to have the men volunteer and be involved in their child’s school. If you would like to be a WATCH D.O.G. at LOES, please contact the Lone Oak Family Resource Youth Service Center – 538-4116. A criminal records background check will need to be completed on all school volunteers.
