8TH GRADE STUDENTS GIVING BACK
The 8th grade Omega House students have focused on Citizenship this year in their homerooms. Students have learned that good citizens take time to become informed, choose to engage in their communities, and take action when they see needs. On May 5th, 8 Omega students performed various acts of community service throughout the community. Students were given the opportunity to select which location they would prefer to serve at. Those locations included:

Central Denison Elementary/Lake Geneva Day Care

Lake Geneva Youth Camp

LGMS/Badger Grounds and Prep for Color Run

STATE SOLO & ENSEMBLE SUCCESS!
Congratulations to the 6 LGMS band students and 7 events that represented our program with pride Saturday at State Solo & Ensemble! Everyone performed very well.  The following students received a second rating:  Cassidy Rickel, Zoe Smith, Becky Clevenger, and Michal Polheber.  The following students received a first rating:  MJ Corey and Connor Spiewak on two events.

CHROMEBOOK TURN IN INFORMATION
The Chromebook turn in is:
  8th Grade - Monday May 22nd.
  7th Grade - Tuesday May 23rd.
  6th Grade - Wednesday May 24th.
   
Any students having Chromebook issues or breakage should stop in the LMC to see Mrs. Bottlemy ASAP  BEFORE their Chromebook turn in date.  We will not charge any of the students for breakage to the Chromebooks if they see Mrs. Bottlemy  BEFORE May 19th.

There will be charges for breakage during the Grade Level turn in dates.

Basic charges are as follows: Charger $15, Broken bezel/casing starting at $25, Keys missing from keyboard $25, Broken screen starting at $25.

Due to the large amount of chargers being "borrowed" from other students, we now have them inventoried along with the student's Chromebook. If a student does not turn in the charger assigned to them, they will be charged. 

Damage to cases will not be exempt. Any student that has purposely damaged their case/strap will be charged. Charges are as follows: Case $25, Strap $7.

Any damage to the ID Tag or if it is missing will incur a $5 charge.
