Dates to Remember
10th - 12th Middle School Field Trip
10th - 2:00 p.m.- 5:00 p.m. We are also happy to announce that our building project is a GO! We are packing the annex up as we speak. The annex is going to be pulled out of here and repurposed - believe it or not! :) We will have a storage container delivered early next week and everything from the annex needs to be moved into it. This is where we really need some help! In an effort to save money, we need help moving the items on WEDNESDAY, MAY 10, BEGINNING AT 2:00 PM, GOING UNTIL WE'RE DONE! Our builder and our architect are bringing helpers, I hope we can count on a great work crew of LaMotte families. If you have a hand truck (dollie), a wheelbarrow, wagon or just a strong back, please join us! Our efforts will save us a few thousand dollars which will go right back into the project! Thank you in advance.
Thank you so much.

La "Monster" Sticker sales
Starting on Monday, May 15th (while supplies last) the middle school will be selling La"Monster" stickers in the pick up line. Stickers are 2" x 5", they will work as bumper stickers, water bottle decoration, ski helmet swag, or anything you can put your mind to. Each sticker will be sold for $5 as a fundraiser for the middle school. This design was inspired by our dear classmate, Zata Webb. Her father shared with us that as a family they would reference students at our school as La"Monsters", so we ran with it.
We thank you for your support! We are also working on turning this cute logo into a t-shirt design so that we can run a sale on merchandise. Merchandise will be available at the start of our 2023/2024 school year. (8th grade parents - if your family is leaving LaMotte this June and headed to the high school, please email me if you would additional information when we have merchandise available.)
Middle School Teachers
Updates for Spring
School Lunch/After School Club -
With the Annex leaving, we will have to house the staff from the Annex in the lunchroom, therefore we will be discontinuing the hot lunch and after school programs after April. Students will need to have a cold lunch - no microwavable items - each day. Students will eat in their classrooms or outside, weather permitting. Thanks for your flexibility!
A note from Mrs. Burke
Just a friendly reminder that school is officially in session at 8:20. Please have your children at school prior to that time. It is very disruptive for the teachers and the students when their classmates arrive late - the late students are also missing out on instruction and important beginning of the day procedures.
Please have students dress in layers and bring a jacket for the unpredictable Spring weather.
Students are encouraged to have sunscreen in lockers to apply for outdoor PE and recess.
Telephones at LaMotte
I wanted you to be aware of an issue we are having with our phone system. After 2:00 PM, the phones do not ring through to the office UNLESS you put in the extension 500 for Mrs. Clark or 506 for Mrs. Burke. We are holding off purchasing a new system until the addition is built.
Thanks for your understanding.
