LCMS Bobcat Parents and Families,

Monday, April 22nd will be a B Day. Tomorrow is Earth Day, and we will be Going Green at LCMS to celebrate our Earth! Students should wear green tomorrow as we celebrate Earth Day, and there will be an Earth Day trivia contest! Winners will be announced throughout the day to receive prizes! Once again, we will wear green tomorrow, Monday, April 22nd, to celebrate Earth Day!

This week, on Wednesday, 6th graders will take the Reading SOL and 8th graders will take the Civics SOL. On Thursday, 7th graders will take the Reading SOL. We wish our students the best as they take these tests!

We ask for your support in ensuring your child is getting good rest, is coming to school prepared and ready to learn, and is continuing to work hard. The end-of-year SOL tests are an opportunity for students to show what they know and demonstrate readiness for the next grade level. Please discuss with your child the importance of putting forth their best effort!

SOL Testing Dates
Please mark your calendar for the end-of-year SOL tests:
6th Grade
Reading SOL – Wednesday, April 24
Math SOL – Tuesday, May 7

7th Grade
Reading SOL – Thursday, April 25
Math SOL – Tuesday, May 7

8th Grade
Civics SOL – Wednesday, April 24
Reading SOL – Thursday, May 2
Math SOL – Tuesday, May 7
Science SOL – Monday, May 13

Also, please ensure your student brings their fully charged Chromebook to school each day, especially on SOL testing days. Having a designated place at home to set the backpack and charge the Chromebook each evening can help ensure a smooth morning as they will be ready to grab and go! If a student has lost their Chromebook charger, the replacement cost is $35, and students may purchase a replacement from the Technology Assistance Center in the library.

Interim Reports
Interim Reports came home with students on Friday, April 19th. 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.
