Good morning.  I hope your families have experienced a joyful and safe holiday season and are looking forward to the coming New Year.


Thank you to Ladue Florist for their very generous donation of flowers to the 7th grade science students. Because of this the 7th grade science classes were able to have a great flower lab to help the students learn about sexual reproduction in plants.

From the Nurse
The nurse wants to remind all parents that students are NOT allowed to transport any medications to school.  Parents must deliver and pick up all medications to and from the nurse and ALL medications require a signature from a doctor - including all over the counter medicines.  Click here for a copy of the Medication Administration Form.  
Or you can also visit the nurse's web page on the LMS website.
