8th Grade Farewell Assembly May 20, 2016

Good morning 8th Grade parents.
We hope that you will be able to attend today’s 8th Grade Farewell Assembly.
Here are a few items for your information:
Program Times The assembly will begin at 12 noon and should last until around 1:30 pm.  It will occur in our Gym.
Parking You may use any available parking spaces on our campus.  Parking can also occur on the blacktop at the back of our building.  It works well to make four rows - one each on the sides next to the fence and two down the middle of the lot.  Parking can also occur in our Circle Drive, but please remember three things: 1) I need to reserve space for unloading of the Shuttle Bus, near the Gym doors; 2) I need to keep the “cut through” open; and 3) please do not park in the Conway Road exit, as our lot gets narrower there. Also, parking in the Central Bank lot, across Conway Road, is prohibited.  In past years, Ladue PD had to have parents leave the assembly to move their cars. As mentioned above, a Shuttle Bus will also be availab…

Good afternoon.  I hope that your week has gone well.    
A huge THANK YOU to all of the parents who helped to plan, decorate, chaperone, clean up and donated funds or props for the 8th grade formal last week.  There are too many of you to list.  A special shout out to Goska Cherrick and Kelly Minifie for chairing this fun event, and to Julie Eastlund for putting together the 8th grade slideshow.  Several parents have asked about seeing the slideshow; it will be shown again before and after the Farewell assembly next Friday.
Congratulations to our 2016 Greenwood Award nominees Jenna Gold, Shelei Pan, Lucie Rowe, Kate Shaw, Guiseppe DiCera, Will Minifie, Jeremy Ouyang, and Michael Wayne. These students were recognized during this morning’s 8th Grade Citizenship Ceremony.  Congratulations as well to Anna and Christopher, who were announced as our two award winners for this year.     
Congratulations to the following 8th grade students who recently took the Nationa…

Message from the LMSPA

LMSPA Spring Gift & Project and 8th Grade Legacy Gift Fundraiser
**Deadline extended**
The following message is from the Ladue Middle School Parent Association (LMSPA):
You should have recently received a letter in the mail for the LMSPA's Spring Gift & Project and 8th Grade Legacy Gift fundraiser.
6th and 7th grade families received a general Spring Gift & Project letter, and 8th grade families received an 8th Grade Legacy Gift letter. This fundraiser allows you to donate to the LMSPA in honor of any of our wonderful Ladue Middle School teachers and staff who have touched your student's life and your family's life in some way. 8th grade families, your donations will help fund the legacy gift for this year's 8th grade class of much-needed new furniture for the LMS Library Media Center.  Our current tables and chairs are nearly 20 years old, heavy and very cumbersome for the librarians to move around and reconfigure for the various daily uses of the library.  We a…

Good morning.  We have professional development activities planned for this afternoon, so I thought it best to get this out before our 12:40 pm dismissal.


Congratulations to coach Hugh McMonigle and the 7th grade Science Bowl team.  This past weekend, The team competed in Washington D.C. and ended up finishing 8th in the nation!  Team members are:  Ashna Chali, Stephen Jiang, William Pan, Harry Chen and Eric Yin. The Ladue Science Bowl program is in its fifth year at LMS.  This is the second national appearance and both times LMS ranked 8th in the US (this year and last).
