Good afternoon.
    Today is Records Day at LMS, when faculty and staff return to submit grades, box up classrooms, and close out the school year.  This is always an interesting day of transition between the energy and chaos of the end of the year and the relative quiet of summer.

I hope that you are well on this glorious Friday afternoon.
On a personal note, thank you for your patience during morning drop off today.  We had a plan, got bogged up, then made an adjustment in traffic routes at the last minute.  I hope that it helped.  Next Friday morning will be a challenge as well and we will do our best.  It might help, if you are entering from Conway and only need to drop off, if you would turn on your left-hand blinker to let me know.  I will get you routed to the front of the building IF buses are not in the way.
Thank you for the LMSPA and our 8th Grade parents for a wonderful 8th Grade Semi-Formal last Saturday evening.  The kids had a blast and the decorations were amazing.
