Welcome to my webpage! My name is Mr. Lofquist and I have been teaching at Lakeside High School since 2006! I currently teach AP US Government and Politics (since 2007), AP US History (since 2011), and US History (since 2006). I have also served as a Reader (scorer) for the AP US History exam (since 2016) as well as a Table Leader for the AP US History exam (2020). It is my desire to help my students to think critically, take responsibility, and be positive participants in the world around them...to R.I.S.E. and L.E.A.D.
This year we will be utilizing both Canvas and Microsoft Teams. Canvas will be our main portal for assignments, quizzes, tests, etc. and Teams will be our main communications tool as well as where you can access MS Word, MS Powerpoint, etc. via Office 365 (which is connected to Teams and provided by LEUSD). To access these tools, all you need is your district provided email address: [email protected] and your password: YourBirthday (eight-digit day of birth with no dashes or spaces (MMDDYYYY)). These resources can be accessed through Clever (same login as above), or by utilizing the links below.
Please note that it would also be helpful, and much easier for you, if you download the Canvas Student APP and the Microsoft Teams APP as having them on your device will give you access to more features within those APPs, making your life much easier.
Please also be sure that you and your parents are signed up for ParentSquare as this is the main communication tool for the district. While Teams will be used for our internal class communications, study group communications, and virtual meetings, ParentSquare is how I will keep parents informed of our class progress as well as individual communications with parents.
If you have any questions, comments, concerns, Starbucks Gift Cards :) that you would like to send my way, please do not hesitate to drop me an email at: [email protected]
