Wednesday Announcements

October 31, 2007

Today is Wednesday, October 31, and it is a B day.

The 8th grade boys basketball game in Pleasant Plains was exciting! The boys pulled ahead at the end, with two boys scoring in the double digits. They play again tonight against Pleasant Plains at 6:15. Good luck, boys!

We passed out school pictures on Monday. Make sure to ask your student to see them! If you want a re-take, they are scheduled for Wednesday, Nov. 14th. You must send back the packet if you want the re-take for free. Students who were absent may pick up a picture form to order pictures on Nov. 14th.

Please send in any spirit wear or Eye Candy orders by Friday, Nov. 2nd. We hope to get those items before Thanksgiving.

Fundraiser items will be delivered to school on Tuesday, 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.

BETA is collecting items for the troops in Iraq. Three friends of mine have sons who are serving there now with the Marines, and we will use their addresses to get the items distributed. We are collecting by grade level, so this is a competition! Here are suggested donations:

Chapstick or Carmex
Playing cards
Individually wrapped candy
Small stuffed animals
Small or regular soccer balls
Puzzle books
DVDs or CDs (used is fine)
Disposable cameras
Flavor packets for bottled water

The applications for the 2008-2009 school year have been mailed to current District 186 5th graders. The applications are also on our website. If a current 5th grader has a 6th or 7th grade sibling at LMS, you must still turn an application in to reserve their spot for next year!

BETA induction is this Thursday, Nov. 1st at 6:30. Your student will receive an invitation today. This celebration is for all current BETA members. New students will be invited to join BETA later this quarter.
