The LCMS Cheerleaders and Jr. Beta club joined together to spearhead a project to collect money for the victims of the Hurricane in Florida. The entire student body, faculty and staff participated in the event. The students, faculty and staff were able to collect and donate over $1700.00. The money will go to a Middle School in Monroe County, Fla. Sugarloaf Middle School  in Florida was tremendously affected by the storm. Our student body wanted to help the middle school students in Florida that are yet to begin school because of the devastation to their schools. We hope to make a difference and let them know we care about them. We have some outstanding young citizens at LCMS! We are extremely proud of the way they came together   to help those in need.

The Georgia Parent Survey is modeled after the student survey and contains 24 questions. Parents may complete the survey using their personal computer, smartphone, or tablet. For parents that do not have access to the Internet, we will have a computer available that will allow parents to complete the survey at school. All parents are encouraged to participate in the survey because the data will be used as part of the calculation of the School Climate Star Rating. Survey responses are anonymous and will be submitted directly to the Georgia Department of Education for analysis. The Georgia Parent Survey is also available in Spanish. Parents may select the Spanish version within the survey. Results from the Georgia Parent Survey will not be available to the public and will not be posted online.

*Attention Parents*
New silent lunch policy
Silent lunch will be used to track teacher managed behaviors along with other behaviors that are not acceptable in the classroom. Students will receive a ticket that will need to be signed and returned the next school day. We know that the only way parents can correct the behavior is if they are aware of it.  
Thank you for your support in this matter.


Attention Students & Parents:
We are fortunate enough to have use of technology for all students at LCMS; therefore, "devices" are no longer needed during school hours. Please be sure to read p. 13 in the handbook carefully                 concerning this policy.
