Announcements for 11/13

November 13, 2015

Good morning! Today is Friday, November 13, and it is an A Day for everyone.

Congratulations to Mr. Mitchell and art club students that worked on the tree for Festival of Trees on receiving 2nd Place for the tree competition! That is an outstanding achievement. They still have a chance to win the Peoples Choice Award. Please make sure to attend Festival of Trees, November 21-29 in the Orr Building at the State Fairgrounds, and vote for the LMS tree.

Save your boxtops! Beginning next week, first hour (6th and 8th Grade) and second hour (7th Grade) classrooms will be competing to win treats for their class. The top 3 classes will earn a special treat!
Check your home for items that carry the Boxtops for Education information. This is a fun way to earn money for your school!
All Classroom Box Tops are due to the Main Office by Dec. 11th

These programs are offered Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday of each week from 2:30-4:00. Transportation home is provided. Please call the school office or Mrs. Hurst in guidance for more information.
