STUDENT PICK UP: If you need to pick up your student during the day, we ask that you please send a note with your student in the morning with a time that you will be picking them up. That way we can write them a pass to hand to their teacher when it's time to leave. This avoids having to disrupt classes by calling in looking for a student.

BUS PASSES: If your student will be riding the bus home with a friend, please send a letter in the morning indicating who he/she will be going home with. We will then issue a bus pass.

As a culminating activity, many of our 8th-grade students participated in the annual "Outsiders Dress-Up Day" on Thursday, September 28. Students were able to portray their favorite "Greaser" or "Soc" by dressing up in the styles of that time period. 8th Grade Language Arts classes recently finished the novel,  The Outsiders , and explored the culture and history of the 1960's. It is always a memorable day for students and staff alike.

Offerings On Our LGMS Website
Your copy should address 3 key questions: Who am I writing for? (Audience) Why should they care? (Benefit) What do I want them to do here? (Call-to-Action)

Create a great offer by adding words like "free" "personalized" "complimentary" or "customized." A sense of urgency often helps readers take an action, so think about inserting phrases like "for a limited time only" or "only 7 remaining!"
