Good morning! I hope you had a great weekend.

Please be aware that the end of the grading period is this Friday, so it is very important that your child has all their assignments completed and turned in. We will host a working lunch opportunity on Friday for students who might need that last opportunity to get assignments turned in. Please check Skyward to see your child's grades and encourage them to attend morning- or after-school help to bring any low grades up before the end of the nine weeks.

LCMS Track Concession

Track Concession Sign-Up

We need parents to sign up so that we can run concession stands at the Track Meets. Please help so we do not have to close them down due to no volunteers.

We need help in our concession stands, so please look at the times and see when you are able to help. We do not want to close the concession stand during track season due to not enough help, so PLEASE consider helping.

I truly appreciate it so much!
