LTMS Parent Newsletter

November 22, 2019

Message from Mr. McCracken

Dear LTMS Families,

I have two important pieces of information for you this week:

1) There will not be a parent newsletter next week; please enjoy your Thanksgiving break!

2) I have included a parenting tip in the newsletter that is very relevant. Macbooks and cell phones are nice for students to have, but they can lead to serious, irreparable mistakes, so please monitor your student's usage.

Happy Thanksgiving and Go Panthers!

Mr. McCracken


Thought for the Week (LT TV)

For this week's thought, I'm sharing the latest episode LT TV. Enjoy.

Parenting Tip (Technology Use)

We are constantly working with students on how to properly use technology, including digital citizenship and online safety. However, social media, video games, and YouTube videos are sometimes all students want to use technology for, and they can all be dangerous. I strongly encourage you to monitor your child's digital footprint using some type of app or software. Below are 10 of the best. While I trust my own children, they know I monitor their usage to protect them and teach them, not to punish or control them. If you need help or ideas regarding technology usage, please reach out to our staff. We have plans in place to help support and teach students that haven't been able to handle the responsibility of having access to technology.

Last Chance to Order Spirit Wear

LTMS Families,

The holiday season is here, and we are excited to offer some spirit wear options to proudly support our Panther Nation! Please use the link below to order some fresh LT attire that will arrive in time for the holidays!


If you would like to have your items held in the office for you to pick up instead of being sent home with your child, please email

Thank you for your support!

PAWS and LT Staff
