Tuesday announcements

December 11, 2007

Today is Tuesday, December 11, and it is a B day.

Parents, we will be sending a form home with students today for information about Immigrant Education Programs. The form asks that if your child was born outside the 50 states, D.C, Puerto Rico or the Virgin Islands AND is enrolled for the first time in a US school ON or AFTER September 30, 2004, you will need to return this form to school by December 18th. Questions can be answered at 525-3060 by Arlene Barewin.

We held the parent computer training at LMS last night. 6th grade parents who were not able to attend may go to Grant tonight (5:30-7:00), or Franklin on Thursday. Several questions that came up were about funding of the program. The computers are available to us as a result of a state grant written by district technology personnel, in conjunction with LMS educators and other district personnel. The grant was very competitive, and District 186 was a fortunate recipient of the computers and professional training for our teachers. Our fall fundraiser paid for the computer carts which house and charge the computers. The education of our students is enhanced daily by the addition of our new computers!

Are you interested in culture or history? The African American History Club will start on Friday from 2:30-4:00. The club will focus on the highlights of black achievement. Anyone from the student body can attend.
