Good evening.  I hope your weekend has gone well.
I wanted to highlight two upcoming events at LMS near the beginning of this message, rather than have them buried below: "I Am LMS" Day is scheduled for Friday, March 4.  This is our annual celebration of the diversity of cultures, races, religions and identities that make up our school population and community.  Students in all three grade levels will learn about stereotypes, the effects of prejudice on different groups of people, and the importance of working together for the good of all.  The day will include performances by The Sparkle Effect, a LMS-LHWHS club made up of students of different abilities, as well as by Gentlemen of Voice, a step group from Riverview Gardens High School.  Students will end the day with opportunities to reflect on what diversity means to them. MAP testing will occur in April.  We ask that parents avoid the following dates in terms of planned absences, appointments, etc. Grade 6:  Monday, 4/11 and…

Good afternoon.  I hope you enjoyed the recent Valentine Day/Presidents Day weekend.
Before beginning with the bulk of this message, I have been asked to put out an appeal for facial tissues.  If you can spare some, and send a box in with your child, it would be greatly appreciated.  I will assume that these can go to their period 1 teacher.   CONGRATULATIONS and THANKS
We would like to welcome two new additions to the LMS family: Congratulations to Ashley Arnold, SSD school psychologist, and her husband Aaron on the birth of their daughter Savannah on February 12.   Congratulations to Rachel Perkowski, LMS Spanish teacher, and her husband Theron on the birth of their son Trevor Knox on February 15.   
Thank you to the Ladue Middle School Parent Association for the purchase and installation of new signage at the front of our building.  This is the “legacy gift” from last year’s 8th graders and the Parent Association.  It looks wonderful.  I am attaching a picture below.

Good morning.  I hope you had an enjoyable weekend.
Some have already noted that we have a conflict in our upcoming calendar.  On February 26, we have our last Ski Trip of the year and the LMS Musical at 7 PM in the LHWHS Performing Arts Center. If did not have to cancel our first Ski Trip due to Hidden Valley not opening, originally scheduled for January 8, this would not be an issue.  As it is, dates for ski trips and the available of the Performing Arts Center are both limited and these were our best opportunities.  My apologies if this causes any problems.   CONGRATULATIONS and THANKS On Saturday, January 30, twenty-three LMS students competed in the regional MCTM mathematics contest at Selvidge Middle School.  Thirteen of these students will move on to compete individually at the state level on Saturday, April 2, along with our team which placed first.  The students who placed in the top ten in the individual categories will compete at state.  Congratulations to coach Nancy Chambers …
