Peace Day

LMS will celebrate Peace Day on Friday, September 20th. Once again this year our students will make pinwheels and at 11 am on the 20th we will walk as a school to Starbucks and "plant" our pinwheels as a symbol in our community. We invite any parents who would like to walk with us to arrive at the school by 10:50 am (the more the merrier because we have so many little friends). We will be back at the school by 11:20 am.

School Pictures

Tuesday, October 1st will be school picture day. Once again this year Studio Walz will be taking our portraits. They do a fabulous job and typically pictures are taken outdoors. A flyer will be sent home in the coming weeks with more details.

Parent Involvement Opportunities

Our website now has a feature for parent involvement opportunities! One of the new possibilities with parent involvement is to be a guest contributor to our LMS Family Blog Post. We would love to have volunteers write a "blog" anytime we have an event or even if there is something you would like to share about LMS. Write ups will be sent to Ms. Tucker for approval and then posted on the website. This is a wonderful way for parents to be part of what is happening at LMS while showing families that are looking for a school how our parents are involved. Currently we are looking for someone to write a blog about Pinwheels for Peace and the Primary field trip to the orchard scheduled for October 3rd. If you would be interested in being a contributor please contact Ms. Tucker!

Parents' Night Out December 6th

LMS will host a Parents' Night Out on Friday, December 6th from 5:30-8:30 pm as a fundraiser to purchase The Lion King musical for our Night of the Arts performance. Dinner, a special treat, holiday activities and a fun movie will round out our fun evening.

Reminders

Please remember during morning arrival and 11:45 am & 2:45 pm dismissal:

DO NOT BLOCK the entrance to the parking lot

STAY IN your vehicle (if you need to come into the building for any reason please DO NOT leave your vehicle parked directly in front of the school. We need to keep our line moving).

DO NOT pull around a vehicle in front of you unless directed by a LMS faculty member.

Africa

Music classes this year will focus around the African culture as a theme culminating with the production of the Lion King at this year's Night of the Arts. Our students are so excited to have this all tie together and spend the year learning all about Africa. Anyone who may have African items or has visited Africa please let us know so we can set up a time for you to visit our classrooms to share! Or, if you know someone who would be willing to come in and talk to our students about Africa we would love that as well!

LMS News to Know 8/15/2019

Welcome Back

We are off to a great start for our 2019-20 school year! Our new friends are becoming acclimated to the classrooms and we look forward to welcoming the remainder of our returning friends back to school tomorrow! Thank you to everyone for helping our year get started as smoothly as possible. Please remember not to block the driveway or exit your vehicle directly in front of the school. Our carpool line needs to be able to move effortlessly morning and afternoon.

I am looking forward to seeing all of the parents at our Parent meetings next week. These meetings are extremely important as the teachers and I will be sharing all of the most important information to make our year run efficiently. Returning parents may feel you know all of the ins and outs however, please know there are some new details this year that will be important for you to understand. At least one parent from each family is required to attend your child's class meeting (dates and times below).

These evenings are for PARENTS ONLY. LMS provides no childcare during the meetings. While we adore our little friends it is important parents and teachers are able to concentrate on the topics without distractions. We appreciate your understanding.

You will hear me say over and over this year "if you have any questions or concerns please do not hesitate to contact me" so please know I mean these words when said out loud or typed in a message. I am so looking forward to another wonderful year at LMS! Thank you for selecting LMS as your child's safe place for learning and growing!

- RandiLynn Tucker, Head of School

Coffee tomorrow morning

Parents are invited to meet at Starbucks again tomorrow morning after 8 am drop off to get to know each other. This will give the returning parents an opportunity to get to know the new families!

We will do more of these mornings for parents if there is interest so let us know what you think and what morning would be best for you.
