LCMS Principal Weekly Update for Jan. 28, 2024
LCMS Bobcat Parents and Families, 

Monday, January 29th will be an A Day.

Thank you to all of our Bobcat families who came out for a night of family fun on Friday for the LCMS Bingo Night! We are so blessed to have such a supportive school community!

Interim Reports
Interim Reports will come home with students on Friday, February 2nd. I encourage you to reach out to your child’s teachers with any questions or concerns, or just to connect with them to hear about your child’s continued growth. You can monitor your child’s academic progress by using the online PowerSchool Parent Portal where you are able to see the detailed grade book for each class, as well as attendance and tardy information. Please call our office if you need assistance with logging into the PowerSchool Parent Portal.

Asynchronous Learning Day Community Service Activities
Wednesday, February 14th will be an Asynchronous Learning Day, and Bobcat students and staff will be participating in community service activities as a way to give back to our supportive community! Here is an update: We will be volunteering at the Louisa County Resource Council, the Louisa County Arts Center, the Louisa Animal Shelter, and with an initiative with the Meals of Hope program (located at 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 no later than Friday, February 2nd. (Please note that participation with the volunteer opportunity at the Louisa Animal Shelter requires a signed waiver.) This is an excellent opportunity for students to be involved in a service project that benefits our community, and I hope you will consider having your child participate!

LCMS Yearbook
Be sure to order your LCMS yearbook for $40! Students can take cash or a check payable to Louisa County Middle School to Ms. Ventre in room 901, or you can order online at Students can celebrate their journey, friends, and achievements in this incredible year, forever captured in our LCMS yearbook!
