Message from Mr. McCracken

Dear LTMS Families,

Students and staff have earned a relaxing Labor Day weekend. They are a great group to work with and I can't wait to see what they accomplish this school year! Enjoy your time with family and we will see you back at LTMS on Tuesday, September 2nd.

Go Panthers.

Clark McCracken



Thought for the Week

We are working with our students this year to let them know that they are in control of their learning and their future. We updated our sign in front of LTMS to reflect this belief.

Monthly Health Tip

One week out of each month I will try to include a "Health Tip" for parents of adolescents. I am not a doctor, so these will mostly be articles or web-based. This month's tip is one that as our lives become busier and busier, we could all benefit from. Sleep is an underrated factor in students' social, emotional, academic, and athletic success!

Weekly "Student To Parent" Communication

Tuesday Email

This past week on Tuesday, August 27th, students began emailing their parents each week. 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. If you didn't receive this email, please contact your student's "Pathways" teacher or call the office to make sure you have an updated email address in Skyward.
