     Welcome to Lime Kiln Intermediate School! 


    Dear Lime Kiln Families and Students,


    Welcome to the 2022-2023 school year at Lime Kiln!  We look forward to our partnership with you in the development of our children.

    This year will be a test of our creativity and resilience. We will continue to create an environment where every member of our Lime Kiln family is valued and respected. The faculty and staff of Lime Kiln hold the highest expectations of excellence from the students that we teach. While our modes of delivering instruction will be different, our unwavering dedication to helping students achieve their goals and dreams will remain the same. 

    Many of our students will return to us having suffered trauma due to the COVID-19 pandemic and the racial unrest gripping our country. Their level of stress and anxiety will be higher than normal.  In order to meet the social-emotional needs of our students, we will dedicate time and resources during our school day for social-emotional learning.    

    Thank you for entrusting your children's education to the faculty and staff of Lime Kiln Intermediate School. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions or concerns.

    I am sincerely looking forward to an engaging and enriching school year! 


    Warm Regards,

    Laura Dobson

     Efficacy Principles


    Smart is not something you are. Smart is something you get.


    Thoughts determine your actions.


    Think You Can * Work Hard *Get Smart.


    The Learning Zone is where you get smart.


    In everything you do, “Find Out How Great You Can Be” (FOHGYCB).


    Feedback tells you where your Learning Zone is and how hard you have to work.


    The Step-by-Step Method is a way of working hard to get better.


    Use Feedback!  Think You Can!  Keep Moving Out!


    Overcome Internal and External obstacles.


     Listen to your Strong Side and make it powerful.
