There have been a couple of mistakes with the yearbooks this year. First, the cover does not state our school name or year. To make up for this, Lifetouch will be sending decals that you can place on your yearbook and I should have these by next Tuesday. If you would like one of these please come see Mrs. Ferguson. Second, none of the additional items ordered were sent. They will be overnighting these to me and I will have those items to hand out on Monday. I appreciate everyone’s patience with this and apologize for any inconvenience this causes. If you have questions please contact Mrs. Ferguson. Thank you!

Our friends at Ask Resource Centers have assembled a summer camp list that has something for everyone. Please pass this along to your students’ parents to ensure the kids have a fun-filled and educational summer. Here’s the link:


Please note we will be using the gradual release method with assignment completion as we prepare our students for the next year . Rather than lunch study tables for Term 6, we will offer one night a week for after-school study tables to be held in the school library.

Study tables will take place after school on Thursday on the following dates: May 11

Time: 3:45-5:00 PM in the LMC Parents/Students and/or Teachers may place students in after school study tables.

Students must come with study materials and assignments needing completion. Students need to get their assignments from teachers prior to coming to the study table. This is a quiet work time to complete assignments.

Students must sign in and sign out.

Students may leave when their work is done.

Simpson College is proud to announce the lineup for the second year of its summer camp for middle schoolers! This one-week camp is intended for students who like to read, think about ideas, and use their imaginations. All of the “major” classes are taught by full-time Simpson College professors from the History, English, and Religion departments, so it is a great opportunity for students to get a taste of liberal arts college education.
