Parents,

It is hard to believe that we have completed five six weeks of the 2015-16 school year. As we enter into the last six weeks of the school year, it is very important that you stay on top of your student's grades. Students need to make sure they are staying on top of their grades and that all assignments are turn back to the teacher in a timely manner.


STAAR Tutoring:

We have started our after-school tutoring for the second round of testing, so it is very important that each of those students assigned are attending tutoring on a weekly basis. Our tutoring will offer students individualized instruction so that they can be successful on their state assessment. Please ensure that your student is attending these after-school sessions. Bus transportation will be provided.


STAAR Dates:

Monday, May 9 - 7th and 6th grade Math

Tuesday, May 10 - 7th and 6th grade Reading

Wednesday, May 11 - 8th grade Science

Thursday, May 12 - 8th grade US History


Summer School:

Summer School is just around to the corner and I will need parents to plan accordingly. We will begin to pull student's previous STAAR scores, unit assessments and final year grade in core course to determine if your child will need to attend summer school. Our summer school program will offer small group individualized instruction to close the learning gaps. Our summer school program will provide that extra attention your child needs to strengthen their weakness in the areas of math and reading. Please be looking for summer school letters to be mailed and plan accordingly.


* Summer School Dates: Monday, June 6 - Wednesday, June 22 from 8am-12pm @ Lubbock-Cooper Middle School

LCMS Parent Survey

Families play an important role in the school success of children. There are many different ways that you can get involved and support your children’s learning. Whether you attend LCMSPTO meetings, volunteer on your child’s campus, help with the book fair, or just read with your child at home each night, you are making a contribution that will help your child do well in school.

Family engagement continues to grow at Lubbock-Cooper Middle School, but we’d like to make it even better and make sure our program meets the needs of families, students, and teachers. You can help us form a better partnership between school and home by answering the questions on the online survey.


Please complete the online survey by Tuesday, April 12.

Middle School Track Championship Concession Stand

We have the opportunity to run the CONCESSION STAND at Pirate Stadium for our Middle School Track Championship. This will be the last opportunity for our LCMSPTO to raise funds. It would be great if we could have parents work for one hour shifts. Please consider working as this is a great opportunity to give back to our students and partner with LCMS. I have truly appreciated your help this year.


Tuesday, April 12 @ Pirate Stadium ~ 5pm-9pm

Middle School Track Championship

SCHOOL ASSEMBLY

We will be attending an assembly at the PAC on April 14. Manny Scott, an original Freedom Writer whose story is told in part in the 2007 hit movie, Freedom Writers, has encouraged over a million leaders, educators, volunteers, and students worldwide with his authentic, inspiring messages of hope. Speaking to over 125 groups a year for the past decade, he is the speaker of choice for conferences, conventions, schools, fundraisers, and banquets.

Manny has a gift: the ability to connect with, hold the attention of, and energize all kinds of audiences. From inner-city youth to business executives, Manny has learned to speak, and command, the language of his audiences with relevant, riveting, and compelling messages, moving them from cheers, to laughter, to tears, and go-forward determination.

We are looking forward to working with our LCMS families as we serve the community.
