Week of December 8th

We are looking forward to a big week here at LMS.  First of all, thank you and congratulations to our students and teachers who played a role in the musical theatre production of Fame Jr.  It was a tremendous showcase of the talent and hard work of our LMS musical theatre program. This coming week we are looking forward to the LMS Winter Band Concert on Tuesday night here at LMS beginning at 6:00 pm.  On Thursday night, the LMS Orchestra will have its winter concert at River Bluff High School at 6:00 pm. Our basketball teams will host home games this week on Monday and Thursday with the girls games beginning each night at 5:30 pm.  That’s all for now, let’s have a great week.

Pulsera Project

Next week, the week of December 9-13, LMS will host a “Pulsera” or bracelet sale during all 3 lunches.  The Pulsera Project is a service project and in Spanish classes students have been busy learning about Nicaragua (where the project is based) and preparing for this culminating portion of the project.  If you get a moment and haven’t checked out this video that explains the project – it’s worth checking out!  Please ask students questions about what they’ve learned, the purpose of the project and even what type of ‘pulsera’ they like the best.
Also, please stop by the cafeteria one day next week to check out the handmade bracelets ($5) and purses ($15)! They make excellent stocking stuffers! Please see the attached images of examples of these beautiful bracelets! 
We want to thank you all for the excitement that you’ve shared for this project! Get ready to color the school with Pulseras!

Week of December 1st

I hope you and your family have enjoyed the time away from school during this holiday break.  We look forward to welcoming our students back tomorrow morning.  We have a very busy few weeks ahead before winter break arrives.  

  • Chick fil a biscuits will be on sale this Thursday morning before school.
  •  We begin the winter sports season this week with the LMS basketball teams hosting Meadow Glen tomorrow night beginning with the girls game at 5:30 pm.  A couple of quick notes in regards to basketball games.  If you child is coming to the game as a fan they can not stay after school and wait for the game to begin.  Staff will be scattered throughout the building after school and we can’t ensure supervision.  Also, as a general rule, middle school basketball games last less than an hour and therefore our home games are finished by 7:30.  Therefore, if students are there for a game, they should have a ride arriving by 7:30.   Thanks for your help with this during basketball season.
  •  I am super excited about next weekend and the 7th & 8th grade Musical Theatre productions of Fame Jr. right here in the LMS Theatre.  7th grade performances will be Friday night at 5:30 and 7:30, with 8th grade performances Saturday afternoon at 3:00 and 5:00.  Tickets are on sale now on the LMS website.

     I apologize for the long message, let’s have a great week!
