Welcome to
        Le Sueur-Henderson Community Education
            and the City of Le Sueur Recreation

                     From Superintendent, Dr. Marlene M. Johnson

August is here! It’s that time of year to begin thinking about the start of a new school year. It is my
hope that your summer was filled with wonderful memory making activities along with some rest and
relaxation as well.
I feel very blessed to have been invited to be the superintendent of schools for the Le Sueur-Henderson
school district. Bob, my husband and I moved to the district on June 18th and I officially began July
1. We have found the communities and district to be very friendly and welcoming. I can’t wait for the
buildings to come alive with students and staff in just a short couple of weeks!
Some of you may wonder what my philosophy of leading is like. In summary, I have a deep passion
and dedication towards schools and communities the size of Le Sueur-Henderson. I believe in the high-
quality education a district this size can offer. I believe in the great students that a district this size helps
to develop. I believe in the collaboration opportunities that a district this size offers for staff, students,
parents, and the community. I believe a district this size promotes a true educational family.

I invite you to follow my blog at http://lshsuperintendentblog.edublogs.org/ Each week, I post a reflec-
tion and a superintendent update. Sometimes I post pictures of various activities that I attended or par-
ticipated in during the week.
My e-mail is a bit different than the rest of the staff. It is marlene.johnson@isd2397.org
I look forward to hearing from you and getting to know you as part of our educational family.

Early Childhood Family Education
 • ECFE is a program for all families with children between the ages of birth and kindergarten.
 • ECFE’s Mission is to strengthen families through support and education by providing an environment for
    healthy growth and development of families.
 • ECFE’s Philosophy is based on the belief that parents are the first and most important teachers for their
   children. ECFE recognizes and supports parents’ understanding of their children as well as their parental roles.
• ECFE includes: Parent/child time, parent discussion groups, play and learn activities, special events for the
   entire family, field trips, day care visits, new baby visits all provided to help you meet the challenge of being a
   parent.
• Where are ECFE Classes held?
  • Park Elementary School, Le Sueur, Rooms 106 and 107
  • United Church of Christ in Henderson
  • Henderson Library

Storyhour Henderson Library
Come and enjoy listening to some of the very best stories for children along with rhymes,
music, puppets, finger-plays and fun! It is a time of quiet listening and fun activities that
will introduce children to reading and books. Children up to age 10 (parents may judge if
their child will sit for stories). Parents must remain with their children during storyhour.
Thursdays, Sept. 20 - Dec. 13          10:30 - 11:00 a.m.         (No story hour Oct. 18 & Nov. 22)
Henderson Public Library              *Free, no registration is required.

Early Childhood Screening
State law requires all children to participate in Early Childhood Screening before they may enter
Kindergarten. Identifying possible concerns early is the best way to prevent serious problems later.
Children turning three by September 1, will receive a letter of invitation to Early Childhood Screen-
ing which takes place each fall, winter and spring.
Early Childhood Screening provides an opportunity for parents to discuss concerns and find out
about resources in the school and community.
Early Childhood Screening includes:
 • health history and immunization assessment • hearing and vision screening
 • height and weight assessment • speech, developmental and fine and gross motor screening
 • summary interview with parents
Screening Dates: October 11, 2018, January 25, 2019 April 4 & 5, 2019

Calling all babies, toddlers and preschoolers!
We need you on the district census! Being on the school district census ensures you will be notified about early
childhood screening, that the elementary school will be expecting your child at kindergarten and that you will re-
ceive mailings from the Early Childhood Family Education program.
Call (507) 665-4631 if:
• You are new to the area.
 •Your family size has increased
• You have a child entering Kindergarten next fall who you believe is not on our census.
• Your child is three and has not received an invitation to Early Childhood Screening.

          Did you Know? Organized sports activity helps children develop
           and improve cognitive skills, according to a study that tracked
          kids from kindergarten through fourth grade (Piche, 2014). The
           Le Sueur Recreation Department offers numerous land based
                      and aquatic sport programs each year.
