Happy New Year LMS Families!
We hope that you and your family enjoyed the holidays and are rested and ready for the new year. LMS ended the week prior to the break cheering during our Staff vs. Students volleyball game. The 8th grade team was very talented winning the first match but the staff held their own, ending the competition with a tie!
Staff and students have 2 weeks left in this marking period so please check ParentVue and have your child check their StudentVue to ensure they have all of their assignments turned in and are monitoring their grades. Report cards for Marking Period Two will be posted to ParentVue on January 20th.
During the month of January, State Troopers will be coming to facilitate safety assemblies for our students. 6th Graders will attend cyber safety presentations, 7th Graders will attend human trafficking presentations, and 8th Graders will attend vaping & cyber safety presentations.
Our Positivity Project Character Strength this upcoming week is Optimism: You expect the best from the future and work to achieve it. Optimism is also captured in Anthony J. D'Angelo's quote, "Wherever you go, no matter the weather, always bring your own sunshine."
Parent Informational Meetings
LMS has scheduled parent informational meetings to support our families and students. In partnership with the Families Against Narcotics (FAN) organization we are hosting an evening presentation on Thursday, January 26th at LMS in the Media Center at 6:00 pm for parents of 4th - 12th grade students. We have also collaborated with Lauren Peabody, LMSW from the Nurture Family Center to provide a Parent Series: Rearing Resilience-Middle School Edition for all parents/guardians of 4th-8th grade students starting on Friday, January 27th at 9:00 am in the LMS Media Center. See the posts below for more information.
Mrs. Molnar's students circle up for academic and social emotional topics. This routine strengthens community with her students. Teachers across the middle school utilize circles and are seeing the positive outcomes of this practice. Office staff implements circles to resolve conflicts and improve relationships with members of our school community.
