This week in Matt Cope's Biology class, students participated in a Concept Attainment activity. Concept Attainment is an inquiry learning strategy where students investigate the attributes of a group or category by comparing and contrasting samples.
Cope's lesson activity asked students to identify the traits and properties of macromolecules. This strategy helps students make connections between what they already know and what they will be learning AND how to sort relevant information.
As faculty and staff from the Landmark/Cornerstone family returned from summer break, Administrators prepared a series of team-building activities. These activities tested their stamina, mental acumen, team-building skills, and familiarity with Landmark's Vital Behaviors.
It was a Great Day to be a Dragon!
- Helps people with no strings attached.
- Creates an Exceptional Experience for the people they serve.
Here we are at week 4! The end of the first mini term is approaching fast and catching some students off guard. Please encourage students to be catching all of their work up if necessary.

Landmark's teachers and staff have been looking forward to this school year since before last year's graduation! They spent a good portion of last year researching and laying the groundwork for the implementation of a new schedule for the 17-18 school year.
Each traditional term of 10 class courses will now be split into two mini-terms consisting of 5 courses each. The new 'Mini-term' schedule encourages teacher-student relationships, reduces student course load, offer more fresh starts, and promotes student accountability, while retaining the credit load of the old schedule.
The school year is here! Please be registered and ready to start on August 22 @ 7:55 am. Due to the nature of our program, you must be here on the first day of school. Please meet with an administrator or counselor for details about our new program.
We will re-open after school starts in August.
