End of 2nd Quarter

Semester one will come to an end on Thursday, January 21. Until then, students are encouraged to continue working hard to finish the semester strong. A reminder that, as a general rule, teachers have been accepting work up to one week past the original due date. When circumstances permit, late work or revisions must be submitted to teachers by Thursday, January 14. Work assigned after January 14 may be turned in up until January 21.

Exciting News!

For your convenience, the SLMS office will be open LATE on WEDNESDAYS until 6:00 pm. This will allow extra time to pick up student materials and assignments. If you are unsure if your student has items to pick up, email LeAnn Branson, Building Clerk at or call the front office 986-1375.

School Sponsored Student Activities


Hey Falcons! Join us for the 3rd, 3-Middle School Virtual SMART Club meeting!! You’ve asked…."What is the Falcon SMART Club Virtual Meeting all about?”...and we’ve answered. Our Middle School SMART clubs provide activities and information that promote staying drug, alcohol and tobacco free. Join us for fun, prizes and a super guest speaker on Wednesday, January 13th, from 2:30-3:00PM. Our speaker, Officer Geno, will interact with us on the topic of the dangers of marijuana. All LSR7 middle schoolers are welcome (you don't need to be a member), so this is a great way to meet new people and have fun at the same time!!!

“How do I join?”, you ask…... You can either email Ms. Lange at, and she will send you the Google Meet code, or you can let your homeroom teacher know that you are interested and he or she will forward your name to Ms. Lange, who will then send you the code.
