LCMS Weekly Update

By Tami Gunset


Report cards were mailed on Thursday, October 8, so you should have received those in the mail. If you requested to view report cards online and opted out of the mail-out, this initial report card will be the only time you will receive the report card by mail.

There are five weeks remaining in the Second Six Weeks, which will end on November 6. Please stay in contact with your child's teacher if you have any concerns. We will host Homework Helpers Monday through Friday from 7:00-7:45AM with Mrs. Hillstrom in the Auditorium, or Monday through Thursday from 4:00-5:15PM with Mrs. Margrave in Room 19.

Goals Days will be on Tuesday, October 13 and 14. All campuses will release at NOON on those days. Lunch will be served at 11:00AM on both days.


Vote for Pirate of the Year at! Vote as many times as you'd like through 10:00PM on Monday, October 12. The winner will be announced during the Homecoming Football game!


We will have our third pep rally on Tuesday, October 13 at 8:30AM. Students are encouraged to wear pink, so we can PINK OUT the gym.

This past week, the LCMS cheerleaders have been selling Links of Love during lunch in order to raise funds for the Navigation Program which provides newly diagnosed breast cancer patients with educational books as they begin to fight this battle. The grade level that raises the most money will be able to witness one of the principals have a pie thrown in their face....a must see, so do not miss out! Monday, October 12 will be the last opportunity to purchase a link for fifty cents.

Homecoming Dance

Homecoming Dance – 8:00-11:00PM on October 16 at LCMS Cafeteria

  • We need parents to help chaperone this dance, run the concession stand, and take tickets at the door.
  • Homecoming Dance tickets are on sale through Wednesday, October 14 daily in each grade level lunch. Please have your student bring their money ($5.00 purchased in advance and $7.00 at the door) and we will keep track of those students who have purchased a ticket.
  • This dance is for LCMS students; we do not allow other districts' students to attend. LBMS students may attend!
  • Dress is casual or church dress. We have students who wear shorts, jeans, slacks, and dresses. Please just make sure that all attire meets our LCMS dress code.
  • Once a student enters the dance, they are not allowed to leave unless a parent comes and picks them up. Students may not go back and forth to the Homecoming Football game and our dance for safety reasons and so we may know where students are at all times.

Lunch with your Student

Please make plans to join your student on October 16 (Homecoming) for lunch. We

will host our Lights On Showcase where we highlight our ACE Programs. Come have

lunch with your student and watch our ACE video showcase!

Run to the Capitol

Help the Lubbock-Cooper Middle School students who are raising funds for their trip to Washington D.C. and New York City this summer by Running to the Capitol!

Join us on the Lubbock-Cooper Middle School football field on October 24 for a morning of exercise and fun.

The run begins at 9:00AM and will feature a competitive 5K with awards in many age categories.

Less experienced runners can also participate in a shorter 1K fun run. This is great for families with kids or with people who want to support the run but can’t make the 5K distance. Prizes will be given for this race as well.
