Parent-Teacher Conferences are scheduled for March 7th, by appointment only. Please visit https://www.ptcfast.com/schools/Learwood_Middle_School to schedule a time to meet with your child's teachers. If you are unable to make either conference and would like to meet with your child’s teachers, please contact your child’s counselor.

WASHINGTON D.C. TRIP

Our 7th grade students will receive information about the 8th grade Washington D.C. trip on Wednesday, March 6th. You will be able to find information about the trip on Learwood's webpage on March 7th. It is imperative to register your child for the trip, even if you cannot make a payment at this time. On March 11th, we will have an opportunity for students/families to help offset some of the cost for the trip with an individual fundraiser. Money earned from the fundraiser will directly be sent to NOWAK travels and be applied to the student's account. Additionally, families may reach out to CRS for possible financial assistance. This is a great learning experience for our students, and a memory they will cherish for the rest of their lives. A mandatory parent and student meeting will be held on August 26th at the PAC.

OHIO STATE TESTING
