Week of January 12th

I hope you are enjoying the unseasonable warm weather this weekend.  Big congratulations to the LMS Dance Team as they successfully competed yesterday, bringing home awards in several different categories.  There are a couple of events I want to mention this week at LMS.  The Wildcat basketball teams will host White Knoll Middle on Thursday evening beginning at 5:30 pm.  Chick Fil a biscuits will be sold Thursday morning before school.  8th Grade Parents, we are going through the process of selecting courses for next year.  8th Graders who will attend River Bluff next year, River Bluff will host their rising 9th grade course fair nights on Monday and Tuesday evening.  8th Graders who will attend Lexington High School, LHS will host their rising 9th Grade night next Tuesday night, January 21st.  Finally, more information is going home with report cards on Monday regarding our Technology Awareness Night on January 28th.  We have partnered with a local organization to provide child care for that night so look for that information coming home on Monday.  Let’s have great week!

Week of January 6th

We are looking forward to welcoming back our students tomorrow.  Tomorrow is the first day of 2nd semester, therefore some of your students Exploratory classes may change.   Students can see their classes for semester two by looking at Powerschool on their Chromebook.  

Our basketball teams will host Gilbert Thursday night beginning at 5:30 pm.  

There are two upcoming events that I want to make you aware of (flyers for each of these events is attached to this email):

  • January 28th – LMS Technology Awareness Night – 6:00 – 8:00 pm
    • There will be a two-fold purpose for this night.  Mr. James Deal from the State Department of Education will present on supporting kids in the digital age.  With Social Media playing such an impactful role in our children’s lives, Mr. Deal brings a unique perspective on how to help children to make good decisions within their online platforms.  The second part of the night will showcase LMS students and their effective use of technology in our school. This will be an incredibly informative and insightful night for any middle school parent.  
  • January 13th or 14th  – 8th Grade Students Only – RBHS Course Fair/Course Selection Night – 5:30 – 7:00 pm
    • River Bluff will host a course fair to allow students/parents to explore and ask questions about high school courses.  This will be followed by a Course Selection Meeting where 8th Grade students will select their 9th grade courses. We are strongly encouraging all LMS 8th graders and parents to attend ONE of the two nights.  

Let’s have a great week!

Week of December 15th

We wrap up the fall semester this week before having Winter Break for two weeks.  After this week, we will see our students back at LMS on Tuesday, January 7th.  One note regarding the schedule this week is that Friday is an early release day with students being dismissed at 12:40 pm.  On Monday night, we are looking forward to the Winter Chorus performance here at LMS in the Theatre.  Just so you are aware, we will be conducting three different drills (Earthquake, Tornado, and Fire) on Wednesday morning.  That’s all from me today, I hope you and your family have a restful break and get to enjoy some quality family time together.  Happy Holidays!
