THE LMS LOWDOWN

April 29, 2022

PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

Monday will be May 2nd, but it doesn't feel that way outside. However, we are in the stretch run for the end of the year. We have all of our activities happening and I encourage you to look at the list below to see all the upcoming events and celebrations. It's going to be a sprint to the finish. The one date I do want to point out is the graduation, which is scheduled for June 15th at 9:30am. More information to come, but I wanted to save the date.


Spring fever is easy to kick in, but we ask that you encourage your child to keep focused on school and academics and finish strong.


Have a safe and happy end to April.

THANK YOU, MRS. BRUHN

Today is Mrs. Bruhn's last day as a staff member at LMS. She holds the distinction of being one of three staff members who were on the original faculty when LMS opened in 1991. She has been a valuable member of the LMS family for over 30 years and we will miss her dearly. Mrs. Bruhn can be seen in the picture below with her class. She is towards the back on the left side. Best of luck in retirement.

RESOURCES FOR YOU AND YOUR CHILD

Becky Clark, one of our social workers, has shared another great resource for our students and families. Click on the link below to see a great article on the mental health benefits of spending time outdoors since the weather is getting warmer. When kids spend time in nature, it can build confidence, improve focus, and lower anxiety.


Why Kids Need to Spend Time in Nature

WAY TO GO, MRS. GAMBINO

Our LMS nurse, Mrs. Gambino, was recently named the 2022 Burlington County Nurse of the Year. Any of you that have had a chance to speak to her know how she goes above and beyond for our students and families. Congratulations!
