BETA Expectations

BETA Convention is here! We just wanted to share a few reminders with students and parents before the BETA Convention. All students spending the night at the Crowne Plaza will need to bring their luggage to LMS Monday morning. The students can bring it to Mrs. Heyen's office. The students competing will be leaving after lunch. The rest of the students will be leaving at the end of the school day. If you are not sure which time your child is leaving we have posted that information on our website. All students will return to LMS after lunch on Tuesday.
* Students participating in the Arts competition need to make sure their project is at LMS MOnday morning and is labeled with the BETA Competition Label (Mrs. Heyen has extra forms in her office).
Please take the time to go over the BETA Convention expectations with your child. These rules will be enforced. If you have a new emergency phone number please make sure that you contact Mrs. Heyen so that she can have the most up to date information. Also, we are asking the students to dress nicely. They will be representing themselves and Lincoln Magnet throughout the convention.
The sponsors have the students emergency contact phone numbers as well as health information. If there is any other information that you would prefer the sponsors have please send it to LMS Monday morning. Mrs. Heyen will be available to answer any questions and/or to collect additional information Monday morning.

We are still looking for parents to help chaperone at the Beta Convention. If you are interested please contact Mrs. Jimerson. The time slots are listed below as well as the activities that will be taking place at that time. The more supervision the better so if you can stay all day that would be great. Any additional support would be appreciated!
