    Thank you for a great 'Spirit Week" here at the HIVE!  We saw great excitement and enthusiasm as our Jackets  got competitive in our College Awareness Trivia and showed great spirit and creativity with their daily outfits and did a great job of cheering our Football team to a Homecoming victory over South Davidson. Way to go Jackets!!!

    Our last football game of the season will be this Wednesday 11/2 at Thomasville. Please come out and show your Jacket Pride!

    Benchmark Testing will begin 10/24.  Please be sure to get your Jackets to school on time, well rested, and dressed for success.  We need all Jackets to succeed on all assessments.

    We will cruise into the close of the 1st Qtr of the school year with an Early Release day on this Friday 10/28. 

    There will be an Optional Teacher Workday on Monday 10/31 which means no school for our Jackets. 

    On Tuesday November 1st we will be hosting Student Lead Conferences from 10am to 6pm.  Please be sure to make appointments with your students' teachers so you can be made aware of all the work your jackets are doing in the classroom and what adjustments need to be made heading into the 2nd Qtr.

    We have an action packed week ahead of us.  Let's make it a Great Yellow Jacket week.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

    Thank you all for another great week at the HIVE.  Parents, we will continue to challenge your students as we set the course for success for every student. As we head into the close of the 1st Quarter, I ask that you encourage your yellow jackets to communicate any issues of aggression or conflict they may be experiencing, with a trusted adult at school or in our school community.  Your school team is working diligently to address and de-escalate conflict because we know that is not healthy on the course to success.
    This week  will be
    Spirit Week at LMS.  Please encourage your yellow Jackets to get in the spirit Daily:

    • Monday will be Time Machine Monday- Please wear clothes from your favorite past or future era. 
    • Tuesday is Twinning Tuesday- Be sure to find a friend or teacher to be your twin
    • Wednesday - Spirit Wear Wednesday.  Come dressed in Jacket Orange and Blue as we cheer on our LMS Yellow Jacket Football Team
    • Thursday will be Wacky Tacky Day
    • Friday is "Famous Friday" - Come dressed as your favorite celebrity or famous person. Or you can just come dressed as your most famous self. 

    Make sure that all dress follows the student dress code and is appropriate for the school setting. 

    We will also be promoting college awareness all week long in conjunction with National Free College Application Week.  We will be setting the expectation for all  Jackets to be college and career ready by announcing a College Fact each day and our staff will incorporating their colleges spirit into their spirit week attire!
    Parents and students please be on the lookout for upcoming assessment dates as well.  We are well on our way into a successful school year.  Please continue to have your child at school daily by 8:15am dressed for success.  We appreciate our Jacket family and this concludes our weekly updates.
