Good afternoon.  I hope your weekend has gone well so far.  The Blues win their final regular season game yesterday and the Cards have come back to tie today’s game.  Not bad at all right now.

Please remind your kids that we encourage everyone (young and old) to wear their Cardinal gear tomorrow in honor of the home opener.

Shoeman Collection
The LMS Partners Club wants your old shoes - really!  You can drop off any used shoes, of all kinds, in the lobby collection boxes marked "Shoeman Water Projects".  Shoes that are collected are resold and funds are used to drill wells and create water purification systems for people in parts of the world without access to fresh water.  All shoes without holes are accepted, but please rubber band pairs together.  The Shoeman collection runs Monday, April 13 -- Friday, April 17.

Fill The Barrel
The District Character Education Committee, in cooperation with Operation Food Search, will be collecting donated food items at each district building to help support area food pantries (that have reduced inventories this time of year).  Food barrels are scheduled to be at LMS (in the Welcome Center Lobby) from April 21 to May 1.
