Thursday Announcements

November 8, 2007

Today is Thursday, November 8, and it is a B day.

PE classes will meet in classrooms today and tomorrow. 7th graders should bring their laptops and writing materials. All other grade levels should bring writing materials only.

Tonight is our Informational Open House for current 5th graders. Current students present highlights of our program, and answer questions during a building tour. We provide this annual "commercial" about LMS to educate parents about their choices for middle school. Because of limited seating, we ask that only prospective families attend.

The play DIARY OF ANNE FRANK will be performed at the Springfield High this weeked. Times are Saturday, Nov. 10th at 8:00p.m. and Sunday, Nov. 11th, at 5:00 p.m. Tickets are $5 for adults and $3 for students. A former LMS student, Jacob Seidman, is one of the SHS student directors!

Fundraiser items will be delivered to school on Wednesday, November 20th at about 1:00. If your child has a BIG order, you may want to arrange to pick them up that day. The prizes will be delivered with their items, and we will have the limo lunch and other big prizes on Friday, December 14th.

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 $4.50 for just a simple message or $5.00 with a holiday image. Ads will be sold during each lunch period starting Wednesday, Nov. 7th and ending Friday, Nov. 30th.

BETA Club is sponsoring some additional events to raise money for United Way. We will have spirit days on Friday, Nov. 9, Friday, Nov. 16, and Wednesday, Nov. 21. We will have a Fun Day activity the last hour of the day on Wednesday, Nov. 21.
