Our schools are heavily impacted with federally-connected students--Parents/guardians who work on federal property in Maryland, live on federal property in Maryland, and/or are active duty military personnel. Because of this impact, we receive federal grant funds to operate and maintain our schools and enrich school programs. To receive these funds, the U.S. Department of Education (USDE) requires us to survey each student to determine eligibility.

SMCPS is encouraging all parents/guardians to please take the time to access and complete the Impact Aid Survey Form online, located in the Home Access Center (HAC). Once logged in, directions to access the online form can be found HERE. A video with instructions is available HERE. The form can now be accessed in Spanish by clicking on the Globe in the top right-hand corner once the form has been started. The deadline for the online submission of Impact Aid Program Survey forms is November 14, 2022.

Classic Car Show

Leonardtown Middle School is hosting a fall car show on Friday, October 7 (with a rain date of Friday, October 14). This car show will cost 2 P.A.W.S. tickets to attend, for our students demonstrating our P.A.W.S. expectations during the first marking period. LMS Jaguars that have proven themselves to be P.A.W.S.-itively phenomenal will be able to attend the car show! Those students have demonstrated qualities of being Positive and Polite, Accepting Responsibility, Working Hard, and putting Safety First. At the car show, students will be voting to determine sixth, seventh, and eighth grade "Best In Show" winners. All car show participants will receive a dash plaque and the love and appreciation of Leonardtown Middle School staff and students.

Parents/guardians, if you have a vehicle that you are interested in bringing to the Classic Car Show, please fill out the Google form below! Thank you

Help us Meet Our Goal

Dear Leonardtown Middle School Families,

September 8th marked the 100th day before National Wreaths Across America Day, December 17, 2022. Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, wreath-laying is carried out at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 1,600 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad. The Maryland Veterans’ Cemetery in Cheltenham is one of the additional locations where wreath laying honoring our country’s fallen heroes takes place. There are over 28,000 gravesites, of which more than half go without a remembrance wreath each year.

Leonardtown Middle School is an official sponsorship group (MD0402P) again this year. Our goal is to sponsor 250 wreaths. You can help us reach this goal by sponsoring one or more wreaths that will go directly to the cemetery in Cheltenham. One wreath sponsorship is only $15.00. There are many options available. By sponsoring a wreath, you can help to REMEMBER AND HONOR the American heroes that served. Sponsorship can be done directly by going to the link below. The link will take you directly to the LMS site and guarantee that we receive credit for your sponsorship. All orders must be received by November 28th. This fundraising opportunity is being brought to you by the MTSS committee in hopes of raising funds for student assemblies, incentives to promote the P.A.W.S. program, and to promote a positive culture at Leonardtown Middle School.

Thank you in advance for your support.

~The LMS MTSS Committee~
