Eagle Scout Project
One of our 8th graders, Harrison Wright, is organizing a donation drive for gently used clothing, books and toys as his Eagle Scout Project.  This drive will benefit the St. Louis Crisis Nursery, which is committed to the prevention of child abuse and neglect and provides emergency intervention, respite care and support to families in crisis.  The drive is scheduled to take place on the LMS parking lot on January 12, from noon to 4 pm.  For more information, please contact Harrison at:

Ski Trip Fridays/Morning Traffic
Ski Trip dates are: January 10, 24 and 31; February 7, 21 and 28 (make up day if needed).
For those parents who have experienced these mornings in the past, there is no better/prettier way to characterize the traffic – it stinks.  More parents bring their kids by car and traffic drop off is delayed as those kids/parents unload ski gear and carry it into our main lobby.
I would suggest the following for Ski Trip mornings:
1.    Try to make every effort to drop your student off before our buses arrive (typically at about 7:55 am).
2.    If possible, deliver your child’s ski gear to the main office/lobby during the school day (after 8:15 am and before 2:30 pm).
We will make the best of it.  Please be patient and make those right-hand turns onto Clayton.  This helps a great deal.
