LOVELAND – The community came out in force to see what the kids are learning in Loveland Schools. Excitement filled the evening air as sign-carrying supporters of Loveland Schools greeted all comers in front of Loveland High School Wednesday evening. Signs expressed a strong show of support for the students, teachers and the community of Loveland.

Excitement didn’t end on the street. A full parking lot was telltale of the community interest in Loveland’s 3rd Annual State of the Schools Open House. The energy was immediately evident inside with a welcoming cheer from pom-pom waving school cheerleaders.

Just ahead a steady stream of people walked along the student gallery of exhibits in the main corridor.

A glance to your eft offered a peek into a packed Tiger Café. Inside the café was a robotics pit and more than 30 exhibit tables with students and teachers ready to answer questions on every topic of learning from STEM for youth, to Being a Writer, Real World Problem Solvers,  Students of the Year campaign for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS-SOY) and every educational topic in between.

There was science demonstrations, the sound of music, media, exploring, and LMS and LHS Hope squad sharing their stories about learning, innovation, and taking steps and finding pathways to the future. Students responded to questions of how teachers, sometimes even two teachers in a classroom help them become better students.

“If we don’t understand what the one teacher is saying, the other teacher can help explain it,” said Emma Harden.

“They’re both really supportive,” said Julia Parker. “If some kids are messing around while the teacher is teaching, the other teacher can calm them down. If you have a question, you can get answers right away.”

The crowd was treated to a display of art work from students all around the district. Revolution, the LMS Show Choir performed in the auditorium along with an entertaining demonstration of Mallet Madness. A basketball shoot-a-round competition kept things lively in the gymnasium too.
