LCMS Bobcat Parents and Families,

Monday, November 20th will be a B Day. We will have clubs at the end of the day on Monday, so please avoid early pickups after 2:30 if possible.

Wednesday through Friday, November 22nd through 24th will be our fall break and there will be no school for students. Classes will resume on Monday, November 27th.

As we approach the Thanksgiving holiday, I would like to express my heartfelt gratitude to each and every one of you in our school community. Your partnership and support play a crucial role in creating a positive and enriching learning environment for our middle school students. Your involvement in their academic journey and overall development makes a significant impact on their success. The partnership between school and home is invaluable, and I am grateful for the strong sense of community we have at Louisa County Middle School. Our students are at the heart of everything we do, and I am inspired by their curiosity, resilience, and enthusiasm for learning. It is a privilege to witness their growth and achievements, and I thank you for entrusting us with their education.

There will be a Winter Sports Parent Athlete Expectations Meeting in the LCMS forum at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, November 20th. All athletes and parents are expected to attend as important information, forms, and details will be given out by the athletic office, athletic trainers, and coaches. The meeting will consist of a session in the forum followed by breakout sessions for each team. Rivanna Gear & Apparel will be selling brand-new LCMS wrestling, basketball, and cheerleading gear, made on the spot!

Interim Reports came home with students on Friday, November 17th. As we progress through the school year, 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.

We hope to see our students ready to learn at school each day! Bobcats can look forward to a fun incentive to celebrate perfect attendance in the month of November!

Our Bobcats will take the Reading SOL Growth Assessment on Wednesday, November 29th and the Math SOL Growth Assessment on Wednesday, December 6th. We will have an alternate bell schedule on those days for testing. It is always important for students to bring their fully charged Chromebook to school each day, and it is especially important on SOL testing days. Please support your child in having a daily routine of charging their Chromebook each night and putting it in their backpack to bring to school each morning.

If you have any questions, or if we can help in any way, please call our office at (540) 894-5457.

This Thanksgiving, I extend my warmest wishes to you and your families. May your homes be filled with joy, laughter, and shared moments of happiness.
