Friday announcements

Today is Friday, November 30, and it is an A day.

The LMS Band will march in the Holiday Parade on Saturday, weather permitting. Check the website for updates.

The 6th grade Girls Basketball game for Saturday has been CANCELLED. The girls will have their celebration next week.

We will hold the lottery for the 2008-2009 school year today. There are a record 315 applications for 116 seats. We will send letters to all applicants today.

7th and 8th grade Volleyball tryouts will be held next week. Here are the dates and times:
Monday, December 3 - Tryouts @ BC- 6:45 - 8:00
Tuesday, December 4 - Tryouts @ BC- 3:30 - 4:45 ( 7th) 5:00 - 6:00 ( 8th)
Wednesday, December 5 - Tryouts @ BC- 3:30 - 5:00
Thursday, December 6 - Tryouts @ LMS -3:00 - 5:00 ( if needed)

Wednesday, December 5th will be the rollout for the 6th grade One-to-One Laptop computers! We are hoping to spend that day learning how to use and care for the new computers! This will benefit the 8th graders, because having the new laptops will free up the other computers for classroom use. Parent training will be on Monday, Dec. 10th at LMS.

All 7th and 8th grade girl basketball players should turn in their complete uniform to Coach Vanderslik by the end of the week.

The holidays are just around the corner. What better way to send a friend, teacher or a loved one a holiday ad? The Leopard Link newspaper is selling holiday ads in the newspaper that will be delivered before winter break. Price for an ad is $2.00 for just a simple message or $2.50 with a holiday image. Ads will be sold during each lunch period starting Wednesday, Nov. 7th and ending Friday, Nov. 30th.
