A new and hopefully impactful change at the middle school this year involves our theme, “The Power of ONE!”. Together, we are ONE building full of Bulldogs, yet each individual has the power of ONE to make a difference in our school, community, and world! Ask your student about some of these Power of ONE activities that have taken place at LCMS so far this year: *Chalk the Walk for the first day of school: Several students volunteered to meet up the night before open house in August to chalk the sidewalks in front of the middle school with welcoming sayings and pictures. They spent their last night of summer working hard to make sure everyone felt welcomed at LCMS! *Monthly Power of ONE whole school assemblies: Our September assembly was held on September 11th and was a time for our school to remember the events of 9/11 and teach students how, like all the firefighters and first responders, they have the power to make a difference! We honored our local fire department and first responders with thank you cards signed by the LCMS Bulldogs. *Knock the Socks Off Homelessness sock drive: During our homecoming dress up days, we held a sock drive on the Battle Royale Battle of the Classes Day to see which grade level could collect the most new pairs of socks to be donated to homeless shelters around the area. Did you know that foot problems plague the homeless because they don’t have the basic necessity of clean, dry socks? Our Bulldogs showed their Power of ONE and collected nearly 400 pairs! We have lots more great activities and assemblies planned throughout the upcoming year and we hope that you ask your student how they can show their Power of ONE! We have challenged EVERY STUDENT IN OUR BUILDING to participate in at least one activity throughout the year and help make a positive difference at LCMS! Go Bulldogs!
