Teen Nation Tour

We had an awesome anti-bullying assembly last Friday, December 5th with The Teen Nation Tour. The performers, ages 15-18, shared their own experiences with being bullied and encouraged LVMS students to participate and sing their songs. The kids were very involved and it reaffirmed the students’ commitment to stand up to bullying. We are dedicated as a campus to continue bullying awareness and prevention, so all students feel safe at school.

Literacy Fair

Kudos to Mrs. Kelley and Mrs. Karg for the outstanding Literacy Fair. We appreciate all of the parent support and the excellent turn out for the students’ project presentations. They were absolutely spectacular!!
