I am writing to keep you informed of the many things taking place at LCMS. Grades for the first Six Weeks are in and Progress Reports were distributed to students on Thursday, September 15. The end of the first Six Weeks grading period is Friday, September 30, so please encourage your child to visit with their teacher and get all assignments turned in on time.

S (Satisfactory) = 79.50 - 89.49

N (Needs Improvement) = 69.50 - 79.49

U (Unacceptable) = 0 - 69.49

Pirates of the Month for September

Congratulations to the following students on being selected as this month's Pirates of the Month. Each month, LCMS staff chooses student Pirates of the Month.

Mrs Baird's Teachers On The Rise!

It's Back!

We are excited to announce that Teachers On The Rise is back for the 2016-2017 school year! The Teachers On The Rise program was created to give students the opportunity and the outlet to write about their favorite teachers and tell us why they deserve recognition.

How the Program Works

Every month, beginning in late September through late May, we will select three winners-one in elementary, one in middle school/junior high, and one in high school. These winners can come from any school district in the area-even private schools. We then plan surprise presentations for the winning teachers and students. We try to make these presentations as big as possible from an all-school assembly, to a part of a pep rally, to even halftime at a high school football game!

Teachers On The Rise winners receive great prizes including a $100 United Supermarkets Shopping Spree, a lunch for two to the private Texas Tech Club, and a great prize from the Texas Classroom Teachers Association. To encourage students to enter their teachers, we give each student who nominates a winning teacher a $50 VISA card!

How to Enter

Students are able to log onto our website: and write a short essay on how their teacher(s) go above and beyond the call of duty. What better way to kick of the school year with students expressing appreciation for their teachers?
