LMS Parents/Guardians

Hello Timberwolf FamiLee!


We hope you had a blessed Thanksgiving Break, and we would like to thank you for your support of our Book Fair and our Can-a-thon. Our students and parents were able to donate over 6,421 cans, with Mr. O'Rourke's class donating over 2,000. Thank you again for your continued support of teaching our students the value of Learning, Motivating, and Serving.


As you know, December is always a very busy month for us all, however, please know that we as the staff at Lee Middle School view these next three weeks with your child as an opportunity to see them thrive and succeed. We have some dress up days planned as well as a major event on the last day of the semester.


We are so excited to announce our first EVER fam-i-Lee friendly Jingle Run event that will be held at Lee on Friday, December 17th at 9:00am. This event is sponsored by our amazing PTSO. Students and parents are invited to participate in this Fun Run event. That's right, parents are invited to either run or walk in this event to celebrate our first semester together. Entry fee is $5.00, however, if you would like to order the inaugural LMS Jingle run shirt for $20 by pre-order only. Please click this link to order your shirt- https://forms.gle/X1zSMoxE23ub2Eze6


As always, we would like to thank you for sending your child to us each week. We are dedicated to our mission of Learning, Motivating, and Serving our Timberwolves.
