It was another great week at LMS! Our staff met with new parents on Wednesday night, held class meetings with all 800+ students on Thursday to share our school expectations, and started to dig into academic coursework. Clubs and sports are up and running. It's a great time of year, full of enthusiasm and excitement! Please note our updated Club/IM/Athletic List is linked below.
Our first after school activity takes place next Friday right after school from 2:45 - 3:45 pm. We will have games, dodgeball, music, and food! This is a great way for new students to socialize with others and celebrate the start of the school year! Admission is $3 ($3.50 at the door) and pizza/pop are available for purchase. Encourage your Rebel to attend!
We are in need of parent volunteers at the activity and to sell tickets during the week -- if you can help, click on the link below!
Help your student dress for success! At our class meetings earlier this week, we reviewed the TSD dress code with all students. We appreciate your support in discussing and helping to enforce these district expectations!
