6th Grade Fall Food Drive is This Week

The state of Maryland has a high school graduation requirement for students to learn how to practice citizenship. As part of their student service learning, our 6th graders are sponsoring a Fall Food Drive for the Loaves and Fishes Food Pantry. The food drive is from November 7-14, 2022. Students are asked to bring in nonperishable or boxed foods to help restock the pantry and help our local community for their student service learning project. Our sixth grade students have been learning about hunters and gatherers. One standard that they have spent much of this marking period working on is : Describe the characteristics and innovations of hunting and gathering societies, such as nomadic lifestyles, inventors of tools, adaptation to animal migration and vegetation cycles, and the shift from food gathering to food-producing activities. We thank you in advance for your support.

Once logged in, directions to access the online form can be found HERE. A video with instructions is available HERE.

Help us Meet Our Goal

Dear Leonardtown Middle School Families,

September 8th marked the 100th day before National Wreaths Across America Day, December 17, 2022. Each December on National Wreaths Across America Day, wreath-laying is carried out at Arlington National Cemetery, as well as at more than 1,600 additional locations in all 50 U.S. states, at sea, and abroad. The Maryland Veterans’ Cemetery in Cheltenham is one of the additional locations where wreath laying honoring our country’s fallen heroes takes place. There are over 28,000 gravesites, of which more than half go without a remembrance wreath each year.

Leonardtown Middle School is an official sponsorship group (MD0402P) again this year. Our goal is to sponsor 250 wreaths. You can help us reach this goal by sponsoring one or more wreaths that will go directly to the cemetery in Cheltenham. One wreath sponsorship is only $15.00. There are many options available. By sponsoring a wreath, you can help to REMEMBER AND HONOR the American heroes that served. Sponsorship can be done directly by going to the link below. The link will take you directly to the LMS site and guarantee that we receive credit for your sponsorship. All orders must be received by November 28th. This fundraising opportunity is being brought to you by the MTSS committee in hopes of raising funds for student assemblies, incentives to promote the P.A.W.S. program, and to promote a positive culture at Leonardtown Middle School.

Thank you in advance for your support.

~The LMS MTSS Committee~
