Please read and discuss with your child. Click here!


I hope that each and every one of our LCMS families has a wonderful Thanksgiving Break and are able to safely surround themselves with family and friends. We are very THANKFUL for our wonderful student body and the support we receive from our parents.

Thanksgiving Break will be Monday, November 23-Friday, November 27.

We have posted your child's three-week progress report to Family Access:

Click on PR 3 Report 2020-21

*We will not be sending PR3 home with students, so please view online!

Please encourage your student to come to school early (7:55am) or stay late (until 4:20pm) with their teachers so they can get some work completed before the end of this NINE-week grading period.

Final Exam criteria is listed above, so please have your student stay on top of grades so they can qualify to exempt their finals and enjoy an early release.


All eighth grade students will be taking the PSAT on the morning of Thursday, November 19 in the cafeteria. They must bring their calculators with them, so please help me remind them to have those with them when they take the PSAT.

2020 UIL Results

I am so proud of our students who participated in UIL this year. They did an amazing job! We are grateful for our sponsors as well. It looked a little different this year, but they prepared our students to do well.
