Happy Mother’s Day, LCMS Bobcat Parents and Families!
Monday, May 13th will be an A Day.

8th grade Bobcats will take the Science SOL tomorrow, Monday, May 13th. We wish our students the best as they take this test!

Clubs on Wednesday: Avoid Early Pickups if Possible
We will have our last club meetings of the year at the end of the day on Wednesday, May 15th! This is such an exciting time for our Bobcats where each student is involved in their unique activity, so we ask that parents and families avoid picking up students for an early dismissal after 2:15 if possible, since students will be in clubs.

Please ensure your student brings their fully charged Chromebook to school each day. 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.

8th grade students will return their Chromebook devices and chargers to LCMS on Friday, May 17th. Rising 9th graders will be issued a new device at LCHS, although students will not receive a new device until the current device and charger have been turned in or the replacement cost has been paid. Invoices will be issued for lost or damaged devices and chargers.

6th and 7th grade Bobcats will keep their Chromebooks over the summer, while being reminded that it is a school-issued device that should only be used for school-appropriate purposes and should be kept in a safe place in good condition.

Attendance Matters Through the Last Day of School!
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 they are sick but should 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 Thursday, May 23rd. Also, remember that we will dismiss at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, May 23rd.

Maintaining High Expectations for Success!
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 soon! 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.

Medication in the Clinic
All over-the-counter and prescription medications must be picked up from the nurse’s office by 3 p.m. on the last day of school, May 23rd. According to LCPS policy, medication cannot be transported on the bus. Medications that are not picked up by an adult will be discarded. NO medication can be carried over from one year to the next. Please contact Nurse Smith with any questions.

It is hard to believe that this will be the last full week of school for the 2023-2024 school year! If you have any questions or if we can help in any way, please call our office at (540) 894-5457. 
Once again, Happy Mother’s Day!
