Parents - please send in your child's device along with the charger that was assigned to it on Tuesday, April 20th. We hope this will continue to lighten the load of our student's backpacks.

Updated 5 Day Week Lunch Menu
One Book One School
Students and families have been enjoying sharing Cleo Edison Oliver Playground Millionaire together. Mr. Davis and Mrs. Pemberton have been getting the mornings started by making predictions about the book during morning announcements. This week, students had to work together with their classmates to participate in a schoolwide scavenger hunt. They solved clues from the book and searched for the hidden objects around the school. Families are invited to check out the LMC website page for ideas and activities connected to the book. To extend learning from the book, there are discussion questions as well as activities and games that teach about economics topics.
