STAFF APPRECIATION WEEK- We have quite an amazing PTO here at LMS, and this week was yet again additional proof of that. Thank you very much to our President, Dawn Sullivan, for coordinating what has been a pretty remarkable week of food and treats for the staff. To say the staff at LMS appreciates your efforts is an understatement. To all who donated items, or who came in to set up or clean up on any of the days I hope you all know who thankful we are. Thank you very much for such a special treat each and every day this week!

 

SBAC TESTING- Starting this coming Monday, we will begin Smarter Balanced Assessment testing for all students. Next week we will conduct the math portions, and the reading components will be proctored the following. As you are aware, these assessments are all web-based, and will require each student to use her/his chromebook and access the state website. I would appreciate it tremendously if you all could help your child during these next two weeks by emphasizing the importance of getting a good night sleep, eating a balanced breakfast, and also ensuring chromebooks are charged!! If all goes well, we will be done with Smarter Balanced testing in five days total (three days next week and two the following). As always, your support is greatly appreciated!

 

PHYSICAL EDUCATION- It seems we’ve had a number of incidents recently of students coming to PE unprepared. More specifically, we have had many come to PE without appropriate footwear. As a reminder all students must have sneakers to safely participate in PE. Slides, sandals, and other open-toed shoes are not acceptable. If you are not sure whether or not your child has consistently met the expectations regarding appropriate PE attire, please check her/his grade in PowerSchool. Any other questions can be addressed with Mr. Tremalgia or Mrs. Longino (ftremalgia@ledyard.net and elongino@ledyard.net).

 

LHS FALL SPORTS SIGN-UPS- Any eighth grade student interested in signing up for a fall high school sport can sign-up in their respective locker rooms. Please also see Mr. Tremalgia who has information available for students to pick up as well.
