Principal's Corner 10/25/2017

Greetings to All:


We would like to encourage you to complete the 2017-2018 RBES Parent Survey through the Parent Portal. You can find a link to the Parent Portal on the front page of the Lilburn Middle School website. All parents are encouraged to take this brief, confidential, computer survey Parents should complete only one survey, before date closing date of November 2, 2017. Thank you for completing this survey about Lilburn Middle School!


We are nearing the end of our first semester of school. Most importantly, we need our students to do all homework and review notes daily. Please check your child’s agenda book for homework assignments daily. Also, student grades and progress can be monitored through the Parent Portal. We would like to encourage you to sign-up for the parent portal. Students can monitor their grades, access online resources, and teacher course pages through their “My Student” login. We are encouraging all students to read at least 20-30 minutes per night and write short summaries about what they have read.


We would like to cordially invite you to attend our Family Technology Night on Thursday, November 2nd at 6:00PM. You will learn how to use various digital resources to support your child, access your child’s course pages, and parent portal. Please keep in mind that our fourth severe weather day will be a “Digital Learning Day”. On Digital Learning Days students will continue learning at home through accessing their teacher course pages. All students will be expected to complete the interactive learning activities and assignments listed on their teacher course pages.


It’s never too early to start preparing for the Georgia Milestones Assessments. To learn more about how to help your child improve their academic performance and how to prepare for the Georgia Milestones Assessments (GMAS), visit the Georgia Department of Education website at the link below to access valuable resources about the Georgia Milestone Assessments. Please have your child practice using the study guides for their grade level under the “Parent Resources” subtitle.

Just a reminder, students must have a signed agenda book in order to attend tutoring. Student’s attending tutoring (or other morning activities) can NOT be dropped-off at LMS prior to 8:00AM. All other students can’t be dropped-off until 8:50AM. When planning appointments (that require your child to be checked-out early), please try to schedule appoints closer to the beginning or end of the day. This will decrease the amount of instructional time that your child misses. Every day counts!


Please have a restful and enjoyable Halloween and Thanksgiving Break!
