Announcements for 9/16

September 16, 2013

Good morning, today is Monday, September 16, and it is a B Day for everyone!

The cross country team had their best showing in the history of the
program at the Parkside Invite in Bloomington, IL on Saturday.

100% of the team posted a new personal best time.
10 boys finished the race in under 15 minutes!
9 girls finished in 16:33 or under.

Great job! Now, the team will try to improve on this weekend's times at our meet at Lincoln Park at 3:30 this afternoon. Good luck.

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 5 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 5 meetings (listed below) to learn about the computers and to allow their student to take the computer home. Students will be expected to complete their homework on their laptop.
