Hello Wildcats!

There’s a lot of great stuff going on at LMS!

On Monday, 2/22, our 8th grade students who took the PSAT will receive results and attend a workshop to help them interpret their scores and develop strategies for the future. Then, on Tuesday, 2/23, all students will receive their 3rd quarter interim grades. This is a great opportunity for students to reflect on their progress and set goals for the remainder of the school year!

Within the next week, our school will be visited as a finalist school for the Palmetto’s Finest Award.  We are honored to be visited and excited to shine the spotlight on our amazing students.

Congratulations to Jack T. for his awesome accomplishment last weekend at the regional Math Counts competition.  Jack was the only student from our district to earn a spot in the final sixteen competitors.  Way to go, Jack!

This week, some of our super-talented visual artists were honored at the Lexington District One Old Mill Showcase. We are so proud of their dedication and beautiful work!

This is a reminder that tomorrow, Friday the 12th and Monday, Feb. 15, are student holidays.  We hope you enjoy some rest and time with family.

Congratulations to our talented LMS performers.  Our students made us proud this past weekend at the South Carolina Speech and Theater Association State Festival. All of our students did a fantastic job.  Cameron Eubanks placed third in monologues and Tucker Privette placed third in original monologues, placing them among the top 3 in the state in their categories.  

Great job to all of our kids, and Happy Valentines Day from all of the LMS Faculty!

The end of basketball season is also the end of our cheerleading season.  We want to give a special thanks for all of the hard work and spirit they have given to our school.  For our 8th grade cheerleaders, thanks for a great year and for bringing the state championship home to LMS.

In February, we celebrate black history month and recognize the positive impact that diversity brings to our campus.  We are proud that LMS is made up of all kinds of kids who are amazing in countless ways.

Congratulations to 8th grader Laney Quickel who is the new Miss Jr. Teen South Carolina for 2016!  We are so proud that you will be representing our state.
