Thanks to our very generous corporate and family donors, the PTO is happy to share that 4 additional touchless water bottle filling stations were purchased for LMS. After these very popular and timely items were on backorder for a bit, they are now being delivered and installed. We hope that our LMS community will support these businesses, as they have supported us. A list of those donors can be found here: https://www.lcsedu.net/schools/lms/pto/fundraising


Our next PTO meeting will be on Monday, April 26 at 6:30 pm via Zoom – please join us!
