The hard work and dedication of the staff at Black Lake Elementary is admirable. BLE staff go above and beyond to assure that each and every student has their needs met. At BLE, much like the other Tumwater schools, we have fully implemented Response to Intervention in Reading, and have also begun intervention in Math. Our Learning Assistance Program (LAP) has also shown remarkable growth for our students in Reading. Teachers meet regularly in professional learning communities through our district ACT time each Friday, and students are moved in and out of instructional groups based on the most current data. Our staff holds high expectations for learning for all of our students at Black Lake, and we maintain the belief that all of our students are fully capable learners. The recognition by OSPI confirms our beliefs about our Black Lake students. As a staff, we are so very proud of our Black Lake students. This recognition is for every staff member and every student in our school, and shows that Black Lake Elementary, and the Tumwater School District continue to be headed in the right direction for all students.
