Tuesday announcements

February 26, 2007

Today is Tuesday, February 27, and it is an A day.

Black History Month was a celebration of rich black history for LMS students. A variety of activities were available and enjoyed, including a presentation by storyteller Bobby Norfolk, historic profiles of famous black Americans read by LMS students on the morning announcements, and a gallery walk of black and white photos taken by Beverly Helm Renfro, a well known photographer for several Illinois governors. All activities were informative and enjoyable!

We have much to celebrate this week! We held the school-wide spelling bee, and Aziza McNeese, 8th grader, will represent LMS at the regional spelling bee in March. Austin Ward will be our alternate. Good luck to both students!

The 7th grade girls volleyball team won two out of three games last night against WMS in Decatur! They will go on to play again tonight in Decatur against the winners of the second match.

Have an interest in Science and Math? There is a wonderful opportunity for girls who have those interests. Expanding Your Horizens in Math and Science will be held on Saturday, March 10th. Brochures will be on Mrs. Heyen's table. Scholarships are available.

This Friday, March 2nd, students will have an 11:00 dismissal so that teachers can attend Professional Development. Teachers will spend the afternoon working on plans, and looking at student acheivement.

Monday, March 5th is a day off for teachers and students. It is Casimir Pulaski's birthday.

If you are a 6th grade parent, save March 13 for parent training on the laptops! We will have a session on internet safety, and other important training. This training is mandatory before your student can take his/her laptop home.
