Parent conferences are filling up. We have the options of Thursday, October 30th from 5:00-8:00, and Friday, October 31st from 8:00-2:30. You need an appointment to meet with your student's teacher, so please call 525-3236 by October 24th to reserve a conferences for the 30th and 31st.

Seventh grade students who have Health class this semester will soon be completing a career exploration unit. The goal is to help students think about their future career choices. The activities include a career interest inventory to help students identify general career interests, a four-year high school plan prepared by each student, research into post-secondary training options and a visit to Lincoln Land Community College. Your student will be bringing home a copy of their 4-year high school plan and their career choice. This would be a great time to talk with your student about his or her career interests, and share your own experiences and suggestions. You are invited to join your student during the field trip to visit Lincoln Land Community College on November 7. Call Mrs. Kruger at 525-3236 for more information.

ISAT RESULTS: LMS continues to score well, and many of our students made personal growth on their scores. Mrs. Heyen, our Dean, went into classrooms to explain the individual reports that were given to students. She will be available during parent/teacher conferences to discuss your student's results with you.The staff has invited students to after-school instruction for Literacy and Math based on ISAT scores and current performance. Please return the forms to school, as we plan to start the after-school programs this week.
