Morning Help Sessions
Morning help sessions have begun! Math labs are provided
for all three grade levels on Tuesdays and Thursdays. Reading and
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
Please read the attached student policies!

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
