Announcements for 4/14

April 14, 2011

Good morning, today is Thursday, April 14th, and it is an A Day for everyone!

There will be 60 minute early dismissal this Friday, April 15. School will dismiss @ 1:30 p.m. No School April 18-22 for Spring Break- students return to school on Monday, April 25.

Make a movie, win some cash! The Student Film Club is starting their third annual Student Video Contest. Three winning movies will be shown at Film Club’s Premiere Night, and the winning movie will take home $150. For more information, flyers can be found on the activity table in the main hallway.

When we return from our Spring Break the 8th grade students will be taking the EXPLORE test. Monday the 25th and Tuesday the 26th it is crucial for students to be present at school and prepared to take an important assessment.
This test measures a student's readiness for college, as well as providing a list of career suggestions based on student interest. The Interest Inventory, the first part of the test, is always the most fascinating part for students because it measures their interests and allows them to choose from a list of careers that may be of interest to them. Students have been working hard to prepare for this test and historically LMS students have done very well.

We thank you for noting this as an important part of attendance at school. Students have been preparing with practice exams for the EXPLORE test so that they may be ready.

If you have questions about this test, please contact Ms. Wickham.

Attention all eighth graders interested in being a member of the Springfield High School Scarlet Line Dance Team.

Tryouts will begin Monday, April 25th through Friday, April 29th. Clinics will be held from 4:00-6:00 in the Springfield High School Gymnasium.
