Holiday Assistance

Dear LMS Families:

As the holiday season quickly approaches, we would like to aid those families in need. This year, we will be providing families with Wal-Mart and Target gift cards. We are requesting that the minimum amount on each gift card is $10. Below is a form to return to any of the counselors at LMS, via email, to either donate to a family in need or indicate if your family needs assistance this holiday season. All names will be kept confidential. We will accept gift card donations through Friday, December 9th. Families can pick up the gift cards from the main office on Thursday, December 15th from 8:00-2:00. Any questions or concerns, please call your grade level counselor. Please email the form below or call with the information needed by Monday, December 5th. Please see your child’s grade level counselor’s email and phone extension are below.

Jingle Bell Run

It's that time of year again! The Jingle Bell run will take place on December 10 and Leonardtown Middle has a team participating in the event! In the past, our team has been one of the top fundraisers for this 5k and fun run that benefits the Arthritis Foundation. This is a community event and runners and walkers are encouraged to dress in their holiday gear and bring their dogs and kids in strollers and enjoy scenic Solomon's Island. Please consider joining us! Use this link to register. Make sure you join the LMS team when you register. Feel free to direct any questions you have to Ms.Dade, jtdade@smcps.org.

Help us Meet Our Goal

Dear Leonardtown Middle School Families,

September 8th marked the 100th day before National Wreaths Across America Day, December 17, 2022. Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, wreath-laying is carried out at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 1,600 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad. The Maryland Veterans’ Cemetery in Cheltenham is one of the additional locations where wreath laying honoring our country’s fallen heroes takes place. There are over 28,000 gravesites, of which more than half go without a remembrance wreath each year.

Leonardtown Middle School is an official sponsorship group (MD0402P) again this year. Our goal is to sponsor 250 wreaths. You can help us reach this goal by sponsoring one or more wreaths that will go directly to the cemetery in Cheltenham. One wreath sponsorship is only $15.00. There are many options available. By sponsoring a wreath, you can help to REMEMBER AND HONOR the American heroes that served. Sponsorship can be done directly by going to the link below. The link will take you directly to the LMS site and guarantee that we receive credit for your sponsorship. All orders must be received by November 28th. This fundraising opportunity is being brought to you by the MTSS committee in hopes of raising funds for student assemblies, incentives to promote the P.A.W.S. program, and to promote a positive culture at Leonardtown Middle School.

Thank you in advance for your support.

~The LMS MTSS Committee~
