The Lance

Week of October 25 thru 29

Thoughts and Ponderings

Halloween is almost here! Please note, we will celebrate Halloween at LMS on Friday, October 29. We do allow our students to wear costumes as long as they are school appropriate and do not cause a distraction from the learning environment. We are looking forward to a fun-filled day on Friday, October 29!

Creative people can look at the world in original ways. They are open to new experiences, and have an imaginative and independent thought process. They generate lots of different ideas and can pursue them with energy and enthusiasm. Creativity is a process that takes courage.

Watch the video clip below and discuss the following questions:

1. Do you think creativity is only important to musicians an entertainers?

2. How does creativity impact your daily lives?

3. What are some ways you can encourage creativity in others?

“Others have seen what is and asked why. I have

seen what could be and asked why not.”

Family Meeting Celebrations

The Golden Lance was awarded to the seventh graders on Wednesday during Family Meeting! This was the sixth win of the year for the seventh graders! Congratulations Class of 2027!

Seventh grader, Jacob Velasco, was this week's Lancer Leader of the Week! Jacob has an outgoing, energetic and likable personality. His peers are naturally drawn to him and he is a positive influence on those around him. Jacob takes care of himself by doing wonderfully academically. He does his work on time, participates in class, and always does so with a smile. He takes care of others by being the best partner he could possibly be, prompting awesome classroom discussions. Jacob takes care of this place by representing LMS in the best possible ways in band and on the soccer field. For all of these reasons, LMS is proud to recognize Jacob Velasco as our Lancer Leader of the Week!

Congratulations, Jacob!

Teachers give students who are "caught in the act" a Lancer Leader Ticket to submit into the weekly drawing. This week we are proud to recognize the following students: Elijah Sowell, Landon Hall, Ray Russell V. Way to make LMS a better place!

Parent/Teacher Conferences

A huge thank you to all of the parents who attended conferences this past week. Our teachers appreciated the opportunity to share academic progress and growth based on classroom observations, assessments, and portfolios. The strong relationships between school and home is one reason why we have the high levels of student success at LMS! Thank you for your partnership!
