Keva Planks

KEVA Planks are used in schools, libraries, museums, and maker spaces. They are a teaching tool that can be used as a manipulative to teach subjects including math, science, geography, history, and humanities. Students were given several tasks to build in groups the Eiffel Tower, a bridge over water and selected tasks given at random. The project run by Lee High Media Specialist Stephanie Fee,demonstrates how block play helps build learning skills. Toddlers and preschoolers love playing with blocks. However, the idea of playing with blocks also helps young adults, as well as adults to developing motor skills and hand-eye coordination, help foster creativity, enhance problem-solving ability and build other cognitive, emotional and social skills.

The Eiffel Tower...maybe, after 4 failed attempts, one tantrum, and a steady hand by the girls.

This was supposed to be the Eiffel Tower, but turned into the Globe Theater

The winner of the Eiffel Tower Challenge.

Does anyone really know how to build the Eiffel Tower?

We ran out of blocks.

Chrome Book Policy

The Lee County Chrome Book Policy is now available on our website. Please click here to see the Chrome Book Policy.

Chromebooks handed out to Lee High Students

Chromebook handout

Lee High Students were each given a Chromebook Friday, August 18. The newest revolution in classroom computing can be found in Chromebooks—small, basic laptops that connect to the Internet using Google’s Chrome operating system. With a Chromebook, students can tap in to the power of the Internet—and because the devices include keyboards, they build essential keyboarding skills, required by the Common Core and many state standards, as they research, collaborate, learn, and create. All Lee High students have their very own Chromebook assigned to them, whether they opt to sign a take home agreement or check one out each day in the media center.

An Important Fashion Message: The Sandals Timeline: When to Ditch Those Open Toes

Here at Lee High School, we believe in keeping our students up to date with all the important information they will need to improve their lives, not only educationally and athletically, but in the fashion world, as well. As many of you former students and present Lee High Students know, Open Toe Season is not only a date we all can expose our toes to the world, but it is also a reason to have a parade. But do you know when Open Toe Season actually ends? Well, fear not fashion faux pas-ers...that's French for Ewww! What are you wearing? Today, we will give you a little lesson on when you should hide those phalanges of the foot.

Fall, shmall. The sun is out and we’re in no rush to speed up the end of the summer. Flaunt that pedicure in all its polished glory. It’s still sandal season, after all.

Pre-fall. It’s a season now (well, in the fashion world, at least). And the first day of school – for you, or your little ones – is always full of outfit planning. So, until the last day of summer hits on September 21, you’re free to rock gladiators and wedge sandals as you please. Just leave the flip-flops for dorm showers and pool visits.

It’s officially autumn – which means it’s time to pack up your jewel-clad thong sandals and gladiators and break out those lug-sole boots. Open-toed wedges can stay around, though. Just pair them with dainty ankle socks. Come Halloween, though, toes should be covered. No excuses.

So remember...don't be a FASHION FAUX PAS. Know when Open Toe Season begins and ends.

Indistar® plan is a web-based system implemented by a state education agency, district, or charter school organization for use with district and/or school improvement teams to inform, coach, sustain, track, and report improvement ac-tivities.

Similar to a global positioning system (GPS), Indistar® tells you where you are and helps you get to where you want to be — every child learning and every school improving. Indistar® is stocked with indicators of evidence-based practices at the district, school, and classroom levels to improve student learning. But Indistar® is also customizable, so that the client (SEA, LEA, or charter organization) can populate or enhance the system with its own indicators of effective practice. The system also accommodates rubrics for assessment of the indicators.

Parents may log onto Indistar to view the School Improvement of Lee High School. The following is a list of the reports that Parents may view:

  • Celebrate Our Success!

    This report shows indicators which have been determined by the Leadership Team to be fully implemented, either in the team’s initial assessment or after meeting the objective for the indicator. These indicators are the school’s norms, what is done routinely and with high quality.

  2. We believe that students must understand that they are the ones ultimately responsible for their learning.
  3. We believe that diversity is a strength and should be celebrated, both in the content of our curriculum and the make-up of our student body.
  4. We believe that a safe, positive, and supportive atmosphere is invaluable.
  5. We believe that instruction should meet the needs of all students, regardless of the level of learning or the way in which they learn.
  6. We believe that technology positively impacts student achievement as it changes the teaching and learning environment.

We believe that Respect, Attitude, Cooperation, Effort, and Responsibility (R.A.C.E.R) are integral to success, and we strive to model and teach these values as a part of our curriculum
