Weekly LCMS Updates

By Tami Gunset

Dear Parents

I am writing to keep you informed of the many things taking place at LCMS. We had a fabulous first week of the new school year. I have a few things that I need to let you know so that the rest of the 2015-16 school year will go as well as the first week. There is a lot of information in this weekly email, so please read all the information. I am super excited about this year and know that each and every student will BE AWESOME and have an AWESOME year!


Varsity Football Tickets Sales

Varsity Football Tickets for all the home games are on sale at www.lcisd.net, just look for the “Buy Your Football Tickets Here” button.


Tune in to Pirate Football

This year's Varsity football games will be broadcast on FM 100.7 and AM 950!


We have our Parent/Teacher Organization up and going and we are in need of volunteers. I would love to have each parent plug in somewhere during the school year.

We will have a Parent Meeting on Wednesday, September 14 at 5:30PM in the LCMS Cafeteria to inform parents of our goals and where we can get you plugged in.

Fall Pirate Gear

Fall Pirate Gear Sales end Thursday, September 11 to your child’s fourth period teacher. Order forms can be picked up in the LCMS Main Office.


Order forms will be sent home this week for LCP vest and/or jacket. Please return forms and payment to Lubbock-Cooper Middle School. Jacket are $30.00 and vest are $35.00. These will be great as the Fall weather gets here so order while supplies last.

Bringing Your Student Lunch

  • If you are bringing your student lunch, please make sure and check-in at the front office. Due to safety concerns, you are unable to drop off lunch at the cafeteria. Please make sure that you are only bringing lunch to your child.

Parent Drop Off and Pick Up In front of LCMS

I need each parent dropping off or picking up to do so in front of the Special Education building, so that we do not back traffic up to Woodrow Road. I ask that you do not drop students off in front of the Middle School building. We have placed a sign out front and will need you to pull all the way up to the sign to let your student in or out. We ask that you form double lines up to the sign. Once at the cone, we will file out with a single line. Last week went really well with pick up and drop off and I really appreciate each parent for helping with this.

21st Century Before and After School Program

The 21st Century Community Learning Centers (21st CCLC) serves as a supplementary program to enhance local reform efforts. The program assists students in meeting academic standards in core subjects (math, reading, science, social studies) by providing out-of-school time services to students and their families through community learning centers that offer an array of enrichment activities to complement regular academic programs. The Afterschool Centers on Education (ACE) provides targeted academic support to address skill gaps and enrich the learning environment for students.

All clubs will begin the week of September 8 unless noted on the calendar.
