Nomination for December Staff Member of the Month

Deadline to nominate will be November 30th


I hope that you and your family had a wonderful Thanksgiving. We could not have asked for better weather during the break. It was great to spend time with family and get some much-needed relaxation.

It is going to be a fast three weeks until the Christmas break, so please encourage your student to stay on top of their grades. Students can get help from their teachers each morning from 7:55-8:10am or after school. It is important that all assignments are turned in on time.

We will be hosting Saturday School on December 4 for those students failing who need to improve their grades before semester finals and the nine-week grading period.

Attention 8th Grade Parents

Please have your student return unsold drawing tickets to the office so we can continue to sell them. Also, please return drawing stubs to the box in office. Payments and tickets are due December 13. Drawing will be December 15.

For questions, contact:

Campus Spotlight

Students in Mrs. Stewart's art class worked on drawing and shading. Once this objective was mastered, they were to draw an odd number of pumpkins and color one using oil pastels. These students worked hard and each of their pieces turned out very well. Good Job!

LCMS Angel Tree

I want to thank those families who selected a tag from our Angel Tree during the Thanksgiving Meal. Many of our families will be blessed during this holiday season.

Please know we still have tags on our tree if you are still wanting to help out families. We are also looking for donations to the Pirate Pantry to help with food boxes over the holidays and blessing the siblings of our Pirates that were chosen from the Angel Tree.



For your convenience, you can use the LCP Web Store for monetary donations to the Pirate Pantry. In the notes section, enter "Pirate Pantry" or "PP" so money can go to the correct account. Please click the link below.

Temporary Traffic Changes

In order to complete parking lot construction, the lane closest to the front entry of Lubbock-Cooper Middle School will be temporarily CLOSED beginning Monday, November 15. LCMS and South Elementary parents who enter the campuses from Loop 493 will be diverted to the parking lot lane (see the green path on the map). LCMS students can be dropped off on the south side of the future LCMS front parking lot, where they can safely cross to the entrance of their school building (see the star on the map).

Thank you for your patience and cooperation!
