LCMS Weekly Newsletter

September 2, 2022

Dear Lubbock-Cooper Middle School Families,


I hope everyone is doing well and you’ve got to hear your students talk about their classes and fun activities they’ve been having this week.


Just a reminder that there is no school on Monday, September 5 in observance of Labor Day. We look forward to having everyone back next week and to hearing about all the exciting things the students did over the long weekend.


Relax, rejuvenate and enjoy!


Jess McReynolds, Cathy Barnhill, & Tracye McCallister
