Message from Mr. McCracken

Dear LTMS Families,

Thank you to everyone that attended our Back to School Night! Our goal is to connect our school to the community and your home - and that can only happen with your support. You are welcome at Lexington Trails!

Go Panthers.

Thought for the Week

Monthly Parenting Tip

One newsletter a month, I will feature a parenting tip picked up from a book, article, experience, or another parent. This month I am highlighting how to help limit screen time. Kids have more access to the internet and screens than ever before, and it's challenging to monitor what they are exposed to. Whether your children are younger or in their teens, the Family Link app lets you set digital ground rules to help guide them as they learn, play, and explore online. This is a great resource to help with online safety and digital boundaries!

Weekly "Student To Parent" Communication

Tuesday Email

Starting on Tuesday, August 27th, students will begin emailing their parents each week. To prepare students for post-secondary success, we want them to begin developing 21st century communication skills, as well as responsibility and ownership of their learning. So each week, students will be emailing a screenshot of their grades from Skyward as well as a summary of what they need to do to either maintain or improve those grades. They will also use this email to communicate any special events or information they want shared. Please make sure you have an updated email address in Skyward and be patient with your students as they learn proper email etiquette!

Macbook Tip

The Macbook protective cases are extremely difficult to put back on. Your student should know not to take it off, but if for some reason they do, the video below shows how to get it back on.

Back to School Night

Schedules are very busy during the fall and it's tough to fit everything in. We had a great turnout at our "Back-to-School Night," but if you were unable to attend and have questions, please reach out to your classroom teachers. The theme of the night was "Panther Pride" (check out the Thought For The Week video), and we talked about how students can control their Attitude and Effort.
