Our Cross Country team is still huge, after two grueling days of running! Good job, athletes! Unfortunately, we did not have a bus to take the runners to Lincoln Park, so they ran at school. Parents, we apologize for any confusion or problems this caused. Tomorrow, the CC team will practice at LMS. If we cannot get a bus to Lincoln Park for practice on Friday, WE WILL NOT HAVE PRACTICE! There will be a desk outside of the gym with a sign-in for students who cannot be at practice. Students need to sign the list with a reason that they will not be at practice.

For our 7th grade One-to-One Technology grant recipients (laptops!), we are offering some computer accessories. We have padded computer bags with shoulder straps for $10.00. We also have clear keyboard "skins" which protect the keys from dirt, dust and crumbs. Both items are available in the main office, and will be sold during Meet the Teacher on Thursday.

This Thursday, August 30th, is our Meet the Teacher night at LMS. The PTO will be serving BBQ dinners from 5:30-7:00. We will stagger the welcoming in the gym to accomodate our crowds. 6th grade welcome in the gym will be at 6:00, 7th grade at 6:30, and 8th grade at 6:45. We will also offer several items for sale, including the computer accessories, Agenda Mates, pre-paid yearbook forms, spirit wear forms, etc. There will be special prize drawings at each grade level. Come and join us!

All of Mrs. Murdock's classes should bring their self-selected novels, Elements of Language book, and spiral notebook/composition book(this should actually remain in class) to class every time, unless told otherwise.
