Parent Teacher Conferences - Thank You! – Parents and families, thank you for your partnership in last week's parent teacher conferences. We appreciate you making your child’s conferences a priority in your personal schedule. Over 2300 conferences were scheduled this year! Your children are a blessing to us, and we look forward to communicating with you further throughout the school year. If you have any questions or comments about conferences, the conference scheduling system, or school communications, please contact your building principal.
Thanksgiving Food Drive has started and we need your help!  Students from grades K-12 are asked to bring non-perishable food (and other items suggested below) which will be donated to Project Hope, our local food bank The number of families in need in our community has greatly increased in recent years, and the LC Food Drive contributes significantly to their inventory. Students will meet in cross-grade level "Family Groups" on Tuesday, November 26 to sort, stack and load all the food donations, so the food must be brought to school by the morning of Tuesday, November 26.  You are encouraged to make this a family project and involve your children in the food choices for their donations. 

To be as helpful as we can to Project Hope, we ask you to consider the following :
  1. Press the orange button below to view the Project Hope shopping list of most needed items.
  2. Financial donations are also very helpful.
  3. 14 – 16 oz. cans (unless otherwise noted) are easiest to store and distribute, please no large bulk items.
  4. Project Hope cannot distribute baby food.
  5. Please avoid glass containers as they are more difficult to handle.
  6. Not needed this year: canned vegetables, dried beans, pasta and tomato sauce.
  7. We could use some additional adult help on “sorting day,” so if you would like to help out, contact an 8th Grade Servant-Leadership Student, 8th Grade Teacher Dave Tjoelker (, or MS Counselor Tammelyn Boersma ( We’d love to see you there!
 Thank you for all your generous support!
