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.

National Calendar Day: Today is "National Stop Bullying Day". National Stop Bullying Day on the second Wednesday in October brings together students, faculty, and parents to end bullying. This annual designation promotes standing up against and put an end to bullying. No child should be afraid to ride a bus or go to school because a classmate threatens them. Children who have been bullied should also feel they can report the incident without repercussions.

"National Bring your TeddyBear to School Day" Teddy Bears provide comfort. Many of us have a childhood bear we snuggled up with when we were ill or scared. They were companions. Most Teddy Bears are the perfect size for children to hug at night while they drift off to sleep. They fit neatly into their tiny arms.
