We will have a Valentine’s Dance on Friday, February 10th after school until 5:30. Permission forms must be turned in by Thursday, February 9th by 1:20 (end of lunch shifts). Registrations will not be accepted on the day of the dance. Parents/guardians will pick up students from the dance beginning at 5:30 at the cafeteria entrance of LCMS, which is accessed in the side parking lot. Parking is limited in the side lot. It is recommended that you park in the front lot and walk around to the side entrance. Pizza, soda, water, popcorn, and candy will be available for purchase. All school rules apply at the dance. Students are expected to dance appropriately and dress according to the dress code. Cell phones must remain in backpacks and not be used during the dance. Our Bobcats had an outstanding time at our fall dances, so we are looking forward to Friday!

Leading up to the dance, we will have an SCA spirit week this week, Monday, February 6 through Friday, February 10:

The Student Council Association is excited to make Candy Grams available for purchase! Students may stop at their grade level table to pick up cards and make purchases during morning arrival. The candy grams will include a strawberry cream heart-shaped lollipop and a message card for $1. Candy grams will be delivered on Valentine's Day!

Wednesday, February 15th will be an Asynchronous Learning Day, and Bobcat students and staff will again be participating in community service activities. Space is still available for students to sign up to volunteer at Louisa County Parks, Recreation & Tourism to clean up the playground and organize storage rooms and with an initiative with the Meals of Hope program (located in the Louisa County High School gym) to help measure, pour, weigh, and pack meals and/or create a Kind Card to accompany each meal. Please complete the permission form for your child to participate, and return the form to the LCMS Main Office on Monday if you have not already. This is an excellent opportunity for students to be involved in a service project that benefits our community, and I hope that you will consider having your child participate!
