Braves/LMMS Spirit Night

Thursday, October 1st, is the LMMS 4th Annual Spirit Night at Turner Field!!!!

Come watch the Atlanta Braves go up against the Washington Nationals.  Members of our very own Music Department will be performing the National Anthem prior to the game.

If you are not performing, we are preselling tickets for the game for students, staff, families and friends to support not only Lost Mountain Middle, but our fabulous Rally Foundation!

Buy Braves tickets and a 2015 Rally shirt, to participate in the Rally Pre-Game Parade on that night!  The forms can be found here on the LMMS website or in the front office or from your homeroom teacher.

Come on, let's go chop!  (All performer forms can be found on the band, chorus and orchestra websites.)

Hearing and Vision Screening Day
Sept. 14

Please consider helping our 7th grade students by volunteering with the Hearing and Vision Screening Day!

What it takes : About a 15 minute online tutorial taken in August, that teaches you how to screen a student – for vision or hearing. A quick check-out with the county lead on September 1-4th (pick a day that works for you) – bring your online quiz and sign that you have completed training – short and simple!

LMMS Testing Day – September 14th – with all of our volunteers we can complete in one day! If you have a couple hours or even more during that day we would be grateful!

Please email Gwen Stevens (petecpc@mindspring.com) if you would be willing to help us. Thank you so much for taking part in this very important service for our students.

Lost Mountain has partnered with the Daily Grind to introduce a fantastic new way to show teachers how much we appreciate them. Please encourage a teacher today. Buy them a lunch credit and they will know how much you really appreciate them. They will get a tasty lunch delivered to their school and the program will add $1 to a gift card of their choice. Very Important: Leave a note on their board and make their day (they will get this note emailed to them)!

Visit Teacher's Lunch Box to treat a teacher and learn more about this exciting new community partnership.
