Announcements for 9/11

September 11, 2012

Good morning, today is Tuesday, September 11, and it is a B day.

Calling all 8th Grade families... We would like to invite you to the History Fair Workshop on Tuesday, September 11, 2012 from 5:30 - 6:30 at Lincoln Magnet School.
The Illinois History Fair is an excellent and exciting academic competition, which improves students’ learning skills and also complements our eighth grade learning standards. This project enhances students’ research skills as they explore Illinois’s rich history and share their newly acquired knowledge with classmates, parents and teachers from across the state.
During this workshop you will have the opportunity to learn more about the history fair project, see student examples of research papers, display boards, video documentaries and more.
It is our hope that this workshop will serve as a support to you and your family, as we help each eighth grade student successfully research a history fair topic, and develop a comprehensive research paper.
Please join us for an evening filled with examples and supports that can help you help your child.

We are excited to announce that all of our students have received intense training on their new MacBook Laptops and we are preparing to host a parent training. LMS will host 2 parent training's for all sixth grade families and 7th and 8th grade families that are new to LMS.
Parents should attend one of the three meetings (listed below) to learn about the computers and to allow their student to take the computer home.
September 11th - 6:15 - 7:00 @ Lincoln Magnet School
