Teaching and Learning

All LMS students will participate in a Super SQUIRT Day! SQUIRT is an acronym for Sustained, Quiet, Uninterrupted, Independent, Reading, Time! During Super SQUIRT Day, students are welcome to dress in comfy clothes or pajamas and can bring a small blanket, pillow, and stuffed animal. All readers will gather in the library on their designated SQUIRT Day and are expected to bring school-appropriate novels, magazines, comic books, picture books, etc. Students are also permitted to bring healthy snacks and drinks to consume as they curl up to enjoy a day of reading!
