As the 2017-18 school year winds down, preparations have already begun for the NEXT school year. Olivia Oyinatumba, administrative intern at LBJ, has sponsored a writing project that invites current sixth graders at our school to write letters to incoming sixth graders in an effort to ease their transition from elementary school to middle school.

 

The letters, submitted through sixth grade Language Arts classes, allowed our students to discuss how to be prepared, organized, and successful.  Students also wrote about their favorite things about LBJ and invited these graduating fifth graders to consider becoming a Coyote.

 

Here is one letter, submitted by Lillian Milano from Mr. Kappus's Language Arts class:

   

     Dear Incoming Sixth Grader,

 

     I am writing to tell you how I made the transition from 5th to 6th grade. Some tips I would suggest are to get separate spiral notebooks for each class, learn your lock combinations before the first day of school (you will need two locks -- or three if you have band) and ask questions to clarify instructions.  I recommend using your agenda every day (it can be a good homework checklist every night), listening carefully to teachers, and -- if you can -- buy extra supplies.

 

     Some things I like about LBJ are the music and sports programs, and my favorite teacher is Mr. Boozer (he teaches choir). I think you should choose LBJ because the teachers are amazing (you will have six of them). You will get a lot of freedom, but the teachers will keep you in check. Every staff member will care about your needs. I hope you enjoy your 6th grade year.

 

Oyinatumba plans to publish a sampling of these letters in flyers and handouts provided to parents and students on Sixth Grade Parent Night in April.

Anyone lucky enough to have had Ms. Briana Blech for Info. Tech or Video Production classes at LBJ knows what an awesome teacher she is. Now the whole state of New Mexico knows!

 

Ms. Blech was nominated for the prestigious Golden Apple award by LBJ Principal Michael Bachicha last spring. After a rigorous application process (and lots of extra paperwork), Blech was selected from 140 applicants as one of 16 finalists in the early fall.

 

"In October, the selection committee came to observe for a full day," Blech remembers. "They watched me teach two classes, interviewed Mr. Bachicha, two colleagues, two students, two parents, and then me."

 

Blech learned recently that although she was not named one of the seven New Mexico teachers to win the Golden Apple award, she was named one of the state's top 16 teachers and given the title "Golden Apple Teacher of Distinction."

 

So how does she do it?

 

"In my classroom, I strive to provide students with the skills they will need to be productive in our increasingly digital world," Blech explained. "I want to prepare them for jobs that don't even exist yet. To do that, I try to teach them to be effective problem solvers. I teach my students to be able to discern legitimate sources of information so they can conduct effective research.  I guide students to use the research gathered to create multimedia presentations that persuade their audience."

 

What lesson is she currently teaching?

 

"In my Video production classes, students are working on different modules to learn a new technology," Blech reports. "Students chose a model to complete this nine weeks from topics ranging from designing and printing a 3D model, creating a podcast in Garage Band, shooting and editing photographs in Photoshop, and learning to fly a drone and take aerial footage.

 

"In my Info. Tech classes, students are creating multimedia slideshow portfolios showcasing their interests and career aspirations," she continued. "They will be presenting their slideshows to the class after Thanksgiving break."

 

Now in her 13th year of teaching (11 at LBJ), this graduate of Texas Tech University loves teaching technology to middle school students.

 

"I can't think of a more exciting and dynamic field," Blech said. "I constantly have to learn new things and I love that. I am also excited to share this knowledge with my students so they know what is out there and what they are going to have to know to be successful in their future endeavors."

We all know who our school is named after, but do you know how great Lyndon B. Johnson really was? To answer this question, I did some research on our 36th president. I think you will be amazed by all the things he accomplished during his time in the Oval Office (1963-1969).

 

President Lyndon B. Johnson had a vision for America known as "the great society."  During the period from 1965 to 1967, Johnson persuaded the Congress to pass almost 200 new laws, including:

 

* The Civil Rights Act of 1964, which outlawed discrimination based on race, color, national origin, religion, or sex.

 

*  The Economic Opportunity Act of 1964, providing employment, education, and training programs which became the foundation of LBJ's "war on poverty."

 

* The Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965, which committed the federal government to help local school districts whose students come from low-income families.

 

* In 1965, Johnson signed an amendment to the Social Security Act creating medicaid and medicare, health insurance for the elderly and those with low incomes.

 

"No longer will older Americans be denied the healing miracle of modern medicine," Johnson declared at the time.

 

Currently, 62 million people participate in the medicaid program.

 

* In 1967, Johnson signed the Public Broadcasting Act, providing financial assistance for non-commercial television and radio broadcasting, including PBS and NPR. These media outlets continue to thrive today.

 

* In 1967, Johnson signed the Air Quality Act, which granted the government increased authority to control air pollution.

 

Those are just some of Johnson's far-reaching accomplishments, a legacy to be proud of. LBJ truly changed the world -- and so can we.
