Today is Wednesday, January 23, 2008, and it is an A day.
Each year, the Springfield Public Schools Foundation awards classroom grants for projects designed by teachers. This year, LMS teachers submitted three successful grants. They were "Leopard Link Newspaper" by Heather Murdock; "Cultural Connections: Characters Living Many Lives" by Angie Jimerson, John Martincic and Julie Vanderwater, and "WLMS Radio Talk Show-Take the A train to Harlem" by Terri Devlin and Jodi Mitts. The teachers and Mrs. Nichole Heyen were recognized for their efforts at a reception yesterday, and by the school board last night.
Reminder that our Preview Night for our incoming 6th graders will be Thursday, February 7th from 6:00-7:00. This is for students that are currently in 5th grade, but coming to LMS next year.
8th grade students received a course handbook, and a registration sheet for high school this week. Please fill out the sheet that comes home, even if you are applying for a transfer. Transfers are not granted until later in the spring, and you want to have your student's course choices on file before then. If a transfer is granted, the course requests will be transferred as well.
6th and 7th graders will be bringing home their registration sheets soon. Please fill out choices and send them back by the specified date.
