February News and Notes

GRIT Challenge Reward

The GRIT Challenge reward was held on Thursday, February 11. The reward is part of our Cardinal Pride activities. Students who successfully earn three of the four Pride rewards during first semester earn the GRIT Challenge reward. For the reward, students were treated to activities at the Dr. Browne Recreation Center. Students played volleyball, basketball, soccer, and dodgeball during their visit. This semester 506 LMS students earned the GRIT Challenge reward! Great job Cardinals!

The GRIT Challenge for second semester is already underway! To earn the first Pride goal of the second semester, students cannot miss more than one day during the month of February. The Pride Challenge for the month of March is to have no more than 3 missing assignments. You can do it, Cardinals!

A big thank you to the Dr. Browne Recreation Center for allowing our students to visit, and for arranging all of the activities!
