Morning Help Sessions
Morning help sessions have begun! Math labs are provided

writing labs are offered on Wednesdays. The sessions begin at 8:15.
Students should enter the theater doors in the morning, report to the
theater to receive a pass, then travel to their designated room. The
attachment provides a list of rooms that each grade level/subject
should report to. When students report to their rooms, they should give
the pass to the help session teacher and sign in.
Attendance, Tardies, Arrival and Dismissal!
Did you know that research shows there is a direct correlation between school attendance and
academic performance? Absence from school is often the greatest single cause of poor performance. Attendance is one indicator
for the state scoring model for all schools called the CCRPI (College and Career Readiness Performance Index). For every
student who has six (6) or more absences, our score decreases. This includes students who are absent more than ½ a school day.
Now, what can you do? Of course, we want your sick child to stay at home in order to get better, but when possible, please try to
make appointments to where your child is at school at least ½ of the school day. Let’s work as a team to make LMMS stay #1 in the
