LCMS Weekly Newsletter

By Tami Gunset


I hope that each of your families had a great Spring Break and were able to enjoy some time together. It is so hard to believe that we are beginning the last nine-week grading period for this school year. Please encourage your student to stay on top of their grades and, if they need additional help, to come in before or after school.

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!
