Daily Announcements-Friday

February 4, 2010

Good morning! Today is Friday, February 5th, and it is a B Day for everyone!

It is National Bubble Gum Day! In effort to help raise money for Haiti, you will be allowed to purchase a piece of gum for $0.25 in each class. You may chew it for the class period and then spit it out before entering the halls. We will also have bubble gum contests during lunch. Happy chewing!

Thank you to our student speakers and ambassadors for being wonderful representatives of LMS at our Preview Night. It was obvious the incoming fifth graders are nervous and excited about coming to LMS next school year, and your presence last night made them feel welcomed!

Remember to answer the Question of the Day for Black History Month. The question can be found on the LMS website under Links (Black History Month: Question of the Day). Students who answer correctly will be eligible for a prize drawing.

Parent-Teacher Conferences will be held Monday, February 15th from 12:15-7:15. Parents should call the office to schedule a time. In addition to conferences, we will offer workshops for the ISAT, EXPLORE, and Internet Safety. A handout went home yesterday with the Student Directory.

If you have not turned in your registration form please do so as soon as possible. Turn it in to a core teacher or Mr. Crum’s mailbox. It is very important to get these turned in. Guidance deans will begin working on schedules soon for next year. You don’t want a class to fill up before you get your registration form turned in.

The Friendship Dance will be Feb. 11th at Ball Charter. Please check our website for additional details.

On Saturday, February 20th, the American Lung Association is hosting Fight For Air CLIMB. The event is a race, run or walk to the top of the Hilton Springfield (30 Floors!). Over 300 people have registered to participate in the event. Many volunteers are required to assist. If you are interested in helping, please sign up outside of Mrs. Erickson’s door.
