The LMS Lowdown
October 30, 2020
It's hard to believe, but we are about to hit November. As you know, in public education, that typically means a month in which the schedule is impacted. Next week, we will be closed on Tuesday, Thursday and Friday, 11/3, 11/5, and 11/6 respectively. We are very proud of the efforts of our staff and families to keep COVID-19 out of our schools, but with days off comes the possibility of issues. We ask you to be safe and encourage your kids to make wise choices with the time off next week. In addition, the end of our first marking period is approaching the week after the convention. Please encourage your kids to keep with or make up any assignments that could impact their grades. We hope to see everyone back and healthy after the teacher's convention.
Students of the Month for September!

WHAT A DIFFERENCE A WEEK CAN MAKE...
PLEASE HELP THE PTA ASSIST FAMILIES IN NEED
The Lumberton PTA's annual Holiday Drive will be starting on Monday, November 9th. This program helps to provide children in our community that are less fortunate with coats, clothes, food, and gifts from each child’s specific wish list. In 2019, we were able to help 55 Lumberton children from 24 different families; this could not have been done without your continued support. Please look for an email with more details and a flyer with your homeroom's sponsored child coming soon.
CALLING ALL LOOSE CHANGE! The annual LMS Loose Change drive will be starting Monday, 11-2. This collection is in direct support of the 2020 Holiday Drive and all change collected will be used to buy our local, less fortunate families grocery gift cards. Please keep your eye out for additional details and bring in that loose change!
