  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. 
  
STUDENTS GIVING BACK
The 8th Grade Delta House students from Lake Geneva Middle School have spent the 2016-2017 school year fundraising money through their annual service project. Students raised over $2500. The money was divided up and presented to the Agape House of Walworth, Lakeland Animal Shelter and to an LGMS family who suffered a house fire during this school year.
