Announcements for 2/5

February 5, 2016

Good morning! Today is Friday, February 5, and it is an A Day for everyone.

This morning we will be honoring our students who made the 2nd quarter Honor Roll. Please join us for breakfast after the announcements when Mrs. Hurst will call grade levels down to the cafeteria. Honor Roll lists can be found posted in the locker area so that students may look for their names. Congratulations, students!

LMS Preview Night will be held on February 11 from 6:00-7:00 p.m.

The Public Information Sessions for Springfield Area high school students interested in applying for the Sister Cities Association of Springfield (SCAS) student exchange in Ashikaga, Japan will be held on Monday, January 25 and Monday, February 8. Each session will be at 7:00 PM in the Board Room of the Springfield District 186 Administrative Center, 1900 West Monroe Street, Springfield, IL 62704 (next to Grant Middle School, across from Fairhills Mall).

Interested students and their parents are encouraged to attend one of the sessions, if possible. Applications for the June 17-27, 2016 delegation will be available at the sessions. Applications are open to all Springfield-area high school students (current 8th graders thru current high school seniors). February 29, 2016 is the application deadline.

Springfield has been a Sister City to Ashikaga, Japan since 1990 and has been sponsoring student exchanges for 25 years. The 11-day exchange is a total immersion experience, including living with a Japanese family and attending school. Families unable to attend the information sessions may contact SCAS Ashikaga Committee Chair Carol Zerkle at SCASILINC@aol.com or 217-622-4622 for information and an application packet.

Track season is fast approaching. If you are interested in participating in track, please make sure that you have a physical that is up to date and on file with Mr. Hampsey.
