Good morning, today is Thursday, March 6, and it is an A Day for everyone!

Congratulations to Coach Pettit and our 7th grade volleyball team on their Regional Championship victory last night over Quincy. The girls will now move on to the sectional on Monday, March 10, at Taylorville. Game time is 6:00 p.m.

The 8th grade volleyball team will begin regional play on March 11 against Grant Middle School. Game time is 5:00 p.m. Games will be played at Turner Jr. High in Jacksonville.

Students planning on participating in the track and field program must have a completed athletic card and physical by March 14, 2014. An athletic fee of $60 is also required, unless this fee has already been paid for participation in another sport (Cross-Country, 7th & 8th girls and boys basketball, and 7th & 8th volleyball). 
The athletic card verifies:
 A physical exam

Knowledge of The Drug / Alcohol Policy. The first practice will be a student informational meeting on March 10, 2014 from 2:30-4:00 p.m. Students will have access to an activity bus.

Our LMS girls have all been invited to attend a series of workshops devoted to hands-on experiences in the worlds of math, science and technology. The Expanding Your Horizons conference takes place on Saturday, March 29, 2014 from 8:00 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.
Brochures and registration forms can be picked up on the activity table or from the science teachers.
If your daughter/child is interested in any of these areas for careers, please consider sending her to this conference. The cost is $15 if mailed on or before March 15th and $20.00 after March 15th. Need-based waivers are available through Kristin Olson at Expanding Your Horizons.
