Morning tutorials

This is a reminder that students are welcome to attend tutoring Tuesday - Friday at 7:45 am if they are falling behind or need a little extra help understanding content. Please encourage your student to have an EHallpass created by specific teachers the day before. They will know what that means!!

Family Night - Hosted by our Math Department

We would like to thank everyone who attended our Math Family Night. It was great to see students having fun with their families and friends. I'd like to say thank you to the math department for putting on a great event. We will have a few more family night events during the 2nd semester. More info to come!!

South Plains Food Bank - U Can Share Food Drive

LBMS will be participating in raising funds to donate to the U Can Share Food Drive. SPFB isn't collecting cans at schools this year, so we will be donating funds gathered through spirit days next week. Spirit days will be December 8-10 and will be $2 for each day participating. This is 100% voluntary, but we would love a good representation to this worthy and needed cause.

December 8 - Hat Day

December 9 - Pajama Day

December 10- Christmas Attire

**Please remember that all dress items need to be appropriate for a school setting. If your child needs clarification, please have he/she talk to an administrator.

Exemption Cards

Exemption cards will be sent home on Monday. Please be looking out for these. All fines for the library and student ID's must be paid before a student can get their exemption form. Click the "LBMS Online Store" button below. Parents must sign the back of the form before it's considered valid.

All forms are due Friday, December 10th, before the end of the day. Please see the following graphics for an example of what to be looking for.

Online Payment Program

We are in the process of testing out our new online payment system. If your student has a fine to pay (badges, library, technology, etc) or you would like to make a donation to accounts such as Pirate Pantry, please check out our new site. This will require you to create an account, but then you can quickly select several categories for payment.

** Please review these steps prior to visiting the store. **
