Tuesday announcements

March 18, 2008

Today is Tuesday, March 18. Today is a B day.

Our own 7th grader Alex C. anchored two swimming relay teams that placed 7th (free relay) and 8th (medley relay) at the state swim meet in Dekalb this weekend This competition includes swimmers from a two state region. Way to go, Alex!

Just a reminder that students with the 1-to-1 computers have a HUGE responsibility in protecting those computers! Many students plan to take them home over spring break. If you do not have the insurance rider on your home owner's policy, State Farm offers it for $30 a year. With screen repairs costing $775.00, the rider is a good investment. Please call Fredia Hawthorne at 217 529-4935 for a Personal Article Policy. You would only qualify for it if you have a good claims history, but it is worth checking into.

Students should not have cell phones or electronic devices visible in the hallways. I-pods are to be used in class with teacher approval only! Visible items will be confiscated. Cell phones are to be used after school OUTSIDE, during lunch in the main office.

Track practice for next week will be:
GIRLS only - Monday, March 17; Wednesday, March 19
BOYS only- Tuesday, March 18
All athletes should be prepared to practice indoors and outdoors regardless of the weather.

Lincoln Magnet School will be the recipient of 20% of all sales at the Pizza Hut on 6th and South Grand (1420 South. 6th) on Thursday, March 20th. What a great way to kick off spring break! We have fundraiser vouchers which are valid all day starting at 11:00 a.m. until the close of business. You may dine in, carry out, or have delivery as long as you live in the delivery radius for that store. If you want just carry out or delivery, you can order out of the 2341 W. Monroe location and get the 20% credit for LMS. We will have the vouchers available to download from the website, or you may pick them up at school. The voucher is required, or we don't get the credit.
