Good afternoon, everyone. I have not forgotten you, but time has been taken this week with meetings and other demands. With a two-hour window before the next meeting, I wanted to use this opportunity to wrap up the school year and include any relevant informational items.
Saturday, May 31
Sports Physicals; LHWHS, 8:00 am to Noon
For next year’s 8th grade sports and for incoming high school students who wish to participate in sports. Sponsored by the Ladue Schools Family Assistance Program. Fee is $15.
Physical forms can be printed from the following website:
Thursday, June 5
Final grades should be mailed by this target date. You may already be aware that grades can also be viewed through the Infinite Campus parent portal.
CONGRATULATIONS and THANKS
We were recently informed that our 6th grade camp program will receive "Promising Practices" recognition from the Character Education Partnership, the same group that recognizes National Schools of Character. The purpose of Promising Practices is to share good character education initiatives with schools across the country. Our application was called "Mihaska - Once We Were Five, Now We Are One! - 6th Grade Camp."
I want to extend a sincere, heartfelt thank you to all of our LMS parents, students, and staff for making this a great school year. I often state that I am blessed to be associated with great people. That includes you and your children.
I hope there are no mistakes or omissions, but have been wrong in the past. If I have botched anything up in this message, or left anything out that needed to be communicated, I will send out an update to the Update.
I believe that I already shared information about our summer schedule and office hours. If I am only imagining this, then here it is:
Beginning Monday, June 2, the LMS Office will begin a four-day work week (Mondays through Thursdays), from 7:45 am to 5:00 pm. This will last through the week of July 21. Our Office will also be closed on Thursday, July 3. Beginning the week of July 28, we will resume our normal schedule (Mondays through Fridays), 7:30 am to 3:15 pm.
Two summer programs will be running in our building on some Fridays during our summer four-day schedule. These programs will be supervised by designated district personnel. Please be aware that LMS secretaries and administrators will not be present on those Fridays.
Also, all district and building administrators are scheduled for our yearly summer retreat, which will occur on June 10 and 11.
My office is still a disaster area (no great surprise).

For those of you who have returning 7th and 8th grade students, I will be sending out messages over the summer months regarding the coming school year.
Take care. I hope you and your families have a great summer. Best wishes to our outgoing 8th graders for great success in high school!
