Weekly Dolphin Blast

Week of October 23, 2022

Happy Sunday Dolphin Families!

What a great time was had by all who were able to join us at the Carnival this past weekend! It was wonderful to see so many LCM families on campus and enjoying all of the fun things the Carnival had to offer! Again, I'd like to extend my gratitude to all of the volunteers who gave their time to make this favorite LCM event possible!

We kick off Red Ribbon Week tomorrow and a list of the Spirit Days can be found below. Additionally, we have our October Friday Flag Salute this Friday, October 28th. More information on that morning can also be found below.

With Dolphin pride,

Mrs. Bedard
