LCMS Teachers of the Week


Tuesday, August 28th, was another great 
Prehistoric Weapons Day in Georgia Studies at LCMS. 
Ronnie Johnson, Glenn Bryan, and Superintendent Dr. Light did a fabulous job speaking to the students and demonstrating the evolution of weaponry such as spears, atlatls, axes, and bows and arrows from prehistoric times to the present. The students also learned about the science and mathematics involved when shooting or throwing these weapons.

Duke TIP students-helps gifted students discover their abilities, explore new academic challenges, and celebrate their accomplishments.

The students in Mrs. Bryan's 8th grade Georgia Studies class enjoyed Georgia Cooks Day on August 21st. Each student brought in a food item that contained an agricultural commodity or commodities found in Georgia. The students also had to identify which of Georgia's 5 physio-graphic regions the commodities were from.

LCMS Student Council was given the opportunity two years ago to provide birthday calendars to our community when the Lions’ Club discontinued doing them. The club will use the proceeds to update the sign at the entrance to the
 high school to include LCMS events.
Businesses can purchase ads for the calendar and receive one calendar free. Prices for business ads vary by size. Individuals can purchase calendars to include birthdays, anniversaries, and in memory birthdays. The cost of the calendar is $6 each; listings are $1 each. For more information contact 
Tracy Beggs at tbeggs@lcboe.us or Faith Hill at fhill@lcboe.us The deadline for information and money is September 15th. Thank you for your continued support of our 
students and schools.

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.
