Dear LMS Families,
The leaves are starting to turn and it's a little rainy out there - welcome fall! We are excited to work in a much cooler building now that summer is behind us. Please pay extra attention at pickup if you are driving or walking across the street. Sometimes the rain really complicates things and roads become slicker; we appreciate you helping us keep our community safe!
Thank you for attending our Back to School Night last week - it was so wonderful to have you all in the building to see our spaces and meet our teachers and staff. We love having our school filled with so much positive energy! If you weren't able to make it, we missed you!
LMS staff continue to work with our students around expectations at school and we are seeing growth and improvement! Now that they have their Chromebooks it is very important they remember to bring them fully charged each day. If this is a hardship, or you realize your student is struggling, please reach out to us so that we can make arrangements for your student to leave it at school. Much of our curriculum is online now, so without these devices learning is a challenge.
We are still looking for 4 paraeducators, a PE teacher, and a Russian Immersion teacher, and a part-time Spanish speaking educational assistant. The jobs are posted here - please share with people in your community!
LMS SUN Program
Last week we saw fencing demonstrations during recess to get students excited about Fall programming - sign up today! Please reach out to Will Grebner, SUN Coordinator, at email@example.com if you have any questions.
