Welcome to Lupin Hill Elementary School!
Our K - 5 school is a busy place of active learning for our nearly 600 students. Situated at the top of a hill with expansive views of the hills around us, our students have the advantage of several wide-open grass fields, climbing structures in wood chips, and playground surfaces for basketball, handball, four-square and tetherball during their recess and lunch time outside. If you came by at one of those times, you would also see many children sitting, reading, and chatting in one of the cooler shady spots on campus. Visitors often comment on our exceptional site. We agree. The environment around Lupin Hill is very special.
Perhaps it was the environment that encouraged our parents and students to launch our own Waste Free Lunch Policy Green Initative in 2010. As a result, our students are very conscious of how their lunch materials contribute to the landfills and cause pollution hazards for our birds and local critters. Lupin Hill students have developed an enviromental consciousness that they carry to their homes, neighborhoods and other schools. When you visit our campus, you will be expected to bring your lunch in recyclable packages and to take them home with you to re-use. Our children are well aware that they will soon be the stewards of this planet.
Another sight on our campus are some stunning murals that are designed to encourage good citizenship. As they play handball, students look at a hand painted representation of John Wooden's Pyramid of Success, the commemoration of Neil Armstrong's first step on the moon, or George Washington in full general attire. These visual reminders connect the social development skills that are taught inside the classrooms. Second Step, Olweus Bully Prevention Program, and Character Counts are embedded in the curriculum and positive behavior strategies of our school (and our after school program, Camp Calabasas). Strong parent support of these programs helps our staff to guide our children to grow in kindness, tolerance, respect and confidence. Our annual surveys of school climate indicate that our success is growing in these areas.
Lupin Hill has a strong academic program that is geared to prepare our children to participate as well educated members of the 21st Century. We like to say that we are educating them for their future, not for our past! In so doing, we have many programs and strategies that accomodate all kinds of learners. The integration of technology into learning has been a focus for several years with some unique programs for acquiring basic skills (iStation Reading, ST Math, and Blog Writing). Our Fourth and Fifth Graders work with netbooks on their desks and our primary students share iPad, iPods, and desktop computers.
As schools around the country shift to national standards, called Common Core State Standards, the staff at Lupin Hill is revisiting our instructional practices and strategies to further enhance our curriculum. Clicking on any of the links will take you to more detailed information about the programs at Lupin Hill. We surely hope that you will explore our website, our PFC website http://lupinhillpfc.org/ and come visit us when school is back in session. Our very own Tiger would love to greet you!
