Good evening, LCMS Bobcat Parents and Families,

Monday, May 8th will be an A day.

This week, 6th, 7th, and 8th grade Bobcats will take the Math SOL on Tuesday! We wish our students the best as they take this test! As we are in the final weeks of the school year, we continue to ask for your support in ensuring your child is getting good rest and is coming to school prepared and ready to learn. Please discuss with your child the importance of putting forth their best effort through the last day of school.

It is important that students bring their fully charged Chromebook to school each day, and it will be especially important on Tuesday for the Math SOL!

This is the time of year that we enjoy engaging and collaborative projects, fun activities, and end of year festivities! Remember that school attendance matters through the last day of school! As always, students should stay home when sick but attend school when possible. Students who have 17 or more absences in a given year, whether they are excused or unexcused absences, are considered chronically absent and are subject to being retained. I hope to see all of our Bobcats at school each day between now and the last day of school, which will be Wednesday, May 24th. Also, remember that we will dismiss at 11:00 on Wednesday, May 24th.

It is also important that students continue to meet the highest expectations of conduct while we enjoy the end of school year festivities, including being respectful, having general good behavior and Bobcat citizenship, keeping hands, feet, and all other objects to oneself, and abiding by the school dress code and electronic device policies. Please encourage your child to end the school year positively by making good choices and thinking before they speak and act.

Students who have purchased a yearbook will receive it on Wednesday, May 10th. There are a limited number of yearbooks available for purchase for $40. Students may bring cash or a check to Ms. Ventre in room 901 to purchase a yearbook. 

LCMS uses an online process for student course requests for the upcoming academic year. Based on recommendations from their current teachers, students can see their course recommendations available for next year in all subject areas. We encourage all students and parents/guardians to reach out to the child’s current teachers or the school counseling department if you have any questions about the course selections for next year. In the event you or your child disagree with the current recommendations in PowerSchool, you may fill out a course override request form. This form is available to submit on our website, or you may request a paper copy from the main office. Schedule changes and override requests MUST be submitted to the school by May 12th. Any requests made after May 12th may not be considered. Additionally, you will see the elective selections your child has indicated as their top choices. (You will see more courses listed than your child will actually take.) Your child will receive their 2023-2024 class schedule in late July with their actual course enrollments. Parents and guardians are able to view their student’s course requests for next year through the Parent Portal in PowerSchool. If you cannot access the Parent Portal, please call the LCMS main office for assistance.

Visit our LCMS website to submit anonymous positive and encouraging messages for our Bobcats as we complete our school year on our YouUplift Kindness eWall!

Thank you, as always, for all of your support! If you have any questions, or if we can help in any way, please call our office at (540) 894-5457. Let’s finish the school year strong!
