LCMS Weekly Newsletter

By Tami Gunset

Parent,

I hope that you have had a wonderful weekend. We have several busy weeks ahead of us, so please encourage your child to stay on top of their class work. If they are needing any extra help with their class assignments, please have them make arrangements with their teacher to come in at 7:55am or stay until 4:20pm, Monday through Thursday. This is a short five-week grading period.


There will be several events going on the Week of October 24 - Book Fair, breast cancer awareness dress-Up days and StuCo Haunted House, band concert and halftime performance at the Varsity Football game. Our football team will compete in the Zone Crossover games and volleyball has their end-of-season tournament. Encourage your child to get involved in the many activities taking place!

Parents of Athletes that are being dropped off and picked up by LCMS Locker Rooms

ALL PARENTS should obey the traffic signs posted around campus. We still have a few parents driving the wrong way as they are dropping off or picking up athletes near the LCMS locker rooms. Please obey the one-way sign when dropping off or picking up your athlete. Too many cars are entering the wrong way and this can potentially cause an accident. Please let me know if you have any questions. Thanks for your understanding.

Pirates of the Month for October

Congratulations to the following students on being selected as this month's Pirates of the Month. Each month, LCMS staff chooses student Pirates of the Month. These students are chosen for their contributions to our school and community and for being caring, energetic students and good role models for others.

National Cyber Security Awareness

For the past 13 years, the Department of Homeland Security, the National Cyber Security Awareness Alliance, and other government, education, and industry leaders have designated October as “Cyber Security Awareness Month.” The TTU Office of the CIO participated in the inaugural campaign, and continues our campus and Lubbock Community efforts to raise awareness and promote online safety practices.

With the explosion of social networking applications and growing Internet activity, we are all responsible for protecting ourselves, our families, and our businesses online, as well as keeping our personal and business information secure.


We encourage you to visit our newly updated Cyber Security Awareness site for the community at www.cybersecurity.ttu.edu. On the website, you will also find a rich collection of cyber safety practices and information, such as avoiding identity theft, mobile device data protection, social networking tips, and other topics of interest to digital citizens. We have also added a blog to the cyber security website that will offer tips on timely topics throughout the year.
