School Announcements

  •  Back to School Night Updated Information
     
    As we anticipated, this year will bring many moments where we will ask for your patience and understanding as we "tweek" what we are doing to better serve you, our customers!  

    In order to avoid parking and crowd issues, we would like to break our Back to School Night into two evenings:
    • Wednesday, Aug. 27 for grades 4/5/6
    • Thursday, Aug. 28 for grades 7/8

    Both events will begin in the auditorium at 5:30 pm with entertainment from some of our performance groups.

    Parents will then proceed to their child's FIRST period class for a welcome message that will broadcast at 6:15.
    Students will act as escorts for their parent(s) while they take you classroom to classroom to see where they spend their day.

    Our Back to School Night is formatted to allow students to take ownership of the evening. Teachers will hand out information about their classes (in case you didn't receive it on the first day of school) and will be walking around to meet as many of you as they can that night.  

    We have had a very positive response from our community in using this format.  It takes the stress of ringing bells every few minutes and having parents rush from class to class.  

    As with any Back to School Night experience, teachers simply can't do conferences. If you have specific concerns about your child, their will be sign-up sheets available to allow follow-up communications from the teacher.

    We will have dinner available for purchase on Thursday evening beginning at 5:00 from Kettletyme and Carnitas Mexican.  Part of the profits come back to LMMS/LMAAC!

    We thank you for your flexibility and patience! We know as we move forward this year, we will have lots of learning and growing experiences!  Our goal is to always give our customers the best service!

However, students may bring a pair of dark blue shorts and plain, gray tshirt for PE with his/her name on them with a permanent marker.  Students must provide a combination lock for PE.

    This year we will also be requesting a $5 donation for the school planner. This book is invaluable as a means of communication between school and parent, as well as an important instructional support tool for our students.

    On the first day AND everyday after that, you should always have:

    ·       backpack

    ·       recommended: small pencil sharpener, colored pencils, pencil case for your binder

    ·       Teachers may have specific requests for their classes.

    Cell phones are allowed but must be in your backpack and turned off all day. Violation of this will result in confiscation of the phone. Phones will be returned only to parents.

  • To Help You Prepare
    1. Please be aware of the following dress code guidelines for ALL students:
    • All shirts must have sleeves.
    • All students must wear close-toed shoes.
    • Skirts, shorts, dresses must reach mid-thigh.
    • Shirts for girls should be modest and school appropriate.
    • Hats are prohibited unless for health reasons in the sun.
    • Students in grades 4-6 must wear PE-appropriate clothing on their PE day. Students will know when this is.
    • Students may purchase LMMS shirts or LMAAC shirts on multiple opportunities.

          2.  All students should be prepared with a three-ring binder, notebook paper, a pencil pouch, and 6 folders to act as "dividers" for subject areas in the binders. Specific teachers may have additional requests.  Students should have:

    • numerous pencils (mechanical or otherwise).
    • numerous black or blue pens.
    • crayons and colored pencils (12 to 18 pack).
    • glue and scissors.

          3.  Orientation for students in grades 4, 5, 6 is August 13 from 9:00 am to 10:00 am beginning in the auditorium.  Orientation                  for students in grades 7 and 8 will be from 10:00 am to 11:00 am. This is really for students new to LMMS/LMAAC.                         Students will receive their schedules and be able to take a self-guided tour of our campus.

     
          4.   School will begin on August 14.  LMAAC students will begin at 8:00 am. Breakfast will begin at 7:30 am.  Two buses are available for transportation: one picking up at Avondale Elementary (leaves at 7:03) and one picking up at La Presa Middle School (leaves at 7:13).
     
          5. While I understand that parents are used to walking students to and from their classrooms in an elementary site, we must ask that ALL parents simply drop their students off at the appropriate entrance:  LMAAC will be the ramp by the loading dock. Adults will be there to greet each morning.  That gate will be the only gate open at 7:30 am to receive our LMAAC students.  Students will be walked to this same area at the end of the day by their teachers.  Please do not enter the school to meet your child. We will still have classes in session. We appreciate your support of this policy.
             LMMS students will enter through the gate to the left of the school office beginning at 8:30 am.
     
    The first day of school is August 14. 
     
    LMMS school hours:       
    M, W, Th, F 9:00 am to 3:35 pm ; Tues. 9:00 am to 2:30 pm
