Happy Principal Appreciation Month!

susie principal appreciation
At Lake Superior Academy, we are lucky to have Susie Schlehuber as principal. Since the school’s inception, she has been on a mission to offer the children of the Sault Ste. Marie area a phenomenal Montessori education. Her creativity and commitment has been flourishing since 2016. She obtained her B.S. in Elementary Education from Lake Superior State and her M.S in Educational Psychology, Cognition and Development from Rutger’s University. She has been in education for 16 years and doesn’t see an end in sight.  Ms. Susie is most excited about helping students learn to love learning and life in general. She is married to Roger Schlehuber and they have five children and eight grandchildren. She loves kayaking, snowshoeing, reading and playing with her grandkids.

Fun And Friendly Visitors

Last week was definitely a cold one, but luckily for us, we had visitors to warm our hearts!

An outdoor classroom is taking shape at Lake Superior Academy for this fall!

Lake Superior Academy received a $1,000 grant from Wal-Mart that will be used toward their outdoor classroom. With the funds, the school will improve their natural playground by building a natural log climber and adding new ground cover for several of the outdoor areas. 

Natural playgrounds assist with developing gross motor skills and also help children develop behaviors such as positive social skills, cooperation and the ability to solve problems. In addition, natural playgrounds help to stimulate a child’s imagination and creativity. 

“Receiving this grant will help us bring our natural log climber to life. We are grateful for Wal-Mart’s support,” said Lake Superior Academy principal Susie Schlehuber

Wal-Mart was thrilled to provide an impact in the Sault Ste. Marie community. Mrs. Helen Walton used to say, “It’s not what you gather, but what you scatter that tells what kind of life you have lived.” 

We are grateful for their commitment and gift to the Lake Superior Academy.

Birding Fun!

This month we have been learning all about birds! We have learned about the food they eat and created our own feeders so we could do bird counts. We also learned about how a woodpecker’s beak works, and practiced with a hammer and nails!

Winter Ice Festival

This year was the 4th annual Winter Ice Festival, and this year we got to be a part of the fun! Chainsaws, chisels, and blow torches are the tools of the trade for these award-winning ice sculptors, and one of the sculptors created an LSA student for us. Check it out!
