Good Morning Leopards!! Today is Tuesday, October 13th

Happy Birthday today to Darianna C. & Kenyon G! Enjoy your day!!

Welcoming Ritual: Talk about the difference between Indigenous people day and Columbus Day. If you don't know the difference, look it up or ask a teacher :)

SAEBRS: This week LMS students will take the SAEBRS screener on their laptop in their PE classes. As mentioned last week in our parent email, this screener will help us identify which students may be in need of extra social and emotional support in order to be most successful at LMS.  All students should have received an email from Principal Heyen on Friday with their username and password. If your student did not receive an email from Principal Heyen please contact our main office.

Zoom Expectations: A few reminders that on Zoom you must have your first and last name, typed correctly, in order to be let into the classroom.

Also, we want to recognize that October focuses on Emotional Wellness Month. While taking stock of our stress levels, it’s an excellent time to make some changes, too. Emotional Wellness Month provides information and resources to help us do just that. Stress comes into all our lives in varying amounts. Depending on our the demands, emotional health can take a toll. However, noting the causes of our stress helps identify the biggest offenders so we can stop them. You can always contact our social worker, Mrs. Scheufele at cscheufele@sps186.org.
