In an effort to maximize our learning opportunities we have provided you with your laptop forms so that you can secure laptop insurance and have all forms turned into LMS on the first day of school. The insurance letter included is one option available to LMS at a discount rate. Homeowners/Renters insurance is also an option. If you have any questions please let us know.

Last, if you have not had an opportunity to purchase your tickets for LMS @ the Cardinals vs. Reds Game in St. Louis in September 14th. Please contact Mr. Russell or the main office. Lincoln Magnet 7th and 8th grade Advanced Band, as well as the 7th and 8th grade choir, will have the incredible opportunity to perform at Busch Stadium during a Cardinals/Reds baseball game…and we want to invite all LMS students (and families if they are interested) to join us. This is an excused absence as it is a school activity.  Late season baseball is always fun and it is a great way to celebrate the Arts. Order forms and money can be brought into LMS. T-shirts for this event will also be for sale at LMS.

Just a reminder; your child is already registered at Lincoln Magnet. No further registration is needed.

If you have any questions, please call 525-3236.

We are looking forward to a great year!
