Good afternoon.
I hope that your week has gone well.
For your information, I will be away at a conference next Monday and Tuesday.  I will try to keep as current as possible regarding emails.  With that being said, please be aware if I am not able to respond to messages until mid-week.
    Congratulations to 6th grader Sassy Saleeby, winner of this year's LMS Spelling Bee.  Sassy will go on to compete in the semi-finals of the Regional Spelling Bee sponsored by the St. Louis Post Dispatch on March 11, 2017. Finalists from that written bee will go on to compete in an oral bee on March 18, 2017. The winner of that Spelling Bee will compete in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, D. C. later this spring.       Ashna Chali and Anna Demkovitch both also got perfect scores on the written bee (including getting all of the tie-breaker words correct).  An oral bee was then used after the written bee between the three finalists to determine the winne…

Happy Friday.
I hope we finally see some sun this weekend.  
If you bring your child to school in the mornings, thank you for your patience in the traffic line.  We have experienced an increase in car traffic, particularly on Ski Trip days.  Two items to please keep in mind: Dropping your child off in the parking lot, resulting in them walking across the Circle Drive with traffic, is not recommended.  Students walking across the drive with the number of buses and cars in that area concerns me. Although a left-hand turn leaving our campus may be the most direct route to where you need to go, it can cause significant tie ups in the traffic line.  Please, if at all possible, make a right-hand turn onto Clayton and Conway roads.
