Good afternoon.
I am very glad the weekend is coming up.For some reason, four-day weeks around here seem to take forever.
Congratulations to all LMS students who participated in our annual Spelling Bee after school this past Tuesday.Special congratulations go out to our 1st Place finisher, Justin Wayne from the Pioneer Team, and our 2nd Place finisher, Micheal Wayne from Titan.Justin will now participate in the written Regional semi-final Spelling Bee at McKendree University on Saturday, March 7.Thank you to LMS Librarian Narcisse Laidlaw for coordinating this yearly event and to LMS Teachers Lynn Moeckel, Brian Beracha, Janice Davis and Laurie Lambie for providing assistance.
A huge thank you to the LMS Parent Association Executive Board and Jennifer Parish for providing a multitude of breakfast treats for our staff this morning.What a great way to end the work week!

Good afternoon and Happy Friday.
Thank you for doing a great job of teaching your kids proper manners and consideration for others.Having worked with students over the past thirty-two years, in a variety of settings, it is NOT a common occurrence for children of this age level to hold doors open for others, help their peers when someone drops a loaded binder on a hallway floor, or just say “thank you” or “good morning.”While such positive behaviors and actions are out of the ordinary, based upon my past experience, they are the norm here.That is not to say LMS is perfect (far from it), but working with students who display consideration for others is greatly valued by us all.Please pass this along to your children this weekend to let them know how much it is appreciated.
