Great Morning Leopards! Today is Friday, December 4th. Let's make it a great day!

Weekend Birthday Shout Out to ..... Eli E. 12/5. We hope you have a great day!!

Welcoming Ritual: “Effort beats talent when talent doesn't work hard”. What does that mean to you and what does good effort look like?

Attention 8th Graders!!- Superintendent's Roundtable is a group of appointed high schoolers who come back to middle school to give 8th graders the 4-1-1 on what to look forward to their freshman year. This year's visit will take place on Monday, December 7. Students will be given the option to attend one of two Zoom sessions, either 9:00-9:30 AM or 1:00-1:30 PM. This will count as student's attendance for the day. Check your email from Mrs. Sevener for more information.

Yearbook UPDATE: Last day to fill out applications to sign up to be apart of the Yearbook Team! Email Mrs. MInch with questions.

Student of the Month! Congratulations to those students chosen as our November shining students!! Thank you for working hard, attending class, doing homework, being a good person, being respectful, and persevering through one of the toughest times our generation has ever seen. Look on the LMS main page under photos to see who was chosen :)

Sports Update: Due to new mandates and regulations by the Governor, we will not have open gym or contact days in December. Our fingers are crossed that we will still get to have Boys Basketball and Girls Volleyball start in January. Please remember that you must have an up-to-date physical to be on the team so if you have time, get it now, just in case ;)

ZOOM FATIGUE: Are you thinking... is it 1:30PM YET??? Zoom Fatigue is real! Please remember to use your 6 minutes to take a break, but don't be late for class ;). Also, check out this website for some ideas on how to combat Zoom Fatigue:  https://hbr.org/2020/04/how-to-combat-zoom-fatigue 

National Calendar Day: Today is "National Dice Day". Each year on December 4th, National Dice Day recognizes an ancient gaming tool. Many games incorporate dice as a way to add random challenges or obstacles to the objectives. The origin of dice is uncertain. However, it is known that they have been around for thousands of years.

National Sock Day!

National Cookie Day! yum, yum
