Newsletter Oct 2018

Students, parents and patrons of the LeMars Com- munity Schools are hereby advised that the posses- sion and use of laser light devices at school, at school-sponsored events and on school-provided transportation are prohibited. These laser light devices are disruptive to the educa- tional process, may cause injury to the eye, and are potentially very dangerous because they project a beam of light that cannot be distinguished from a weapon-sighting device. The possession and use of these devices by students will result in permanent confiscation of the device accompanied by disciplinary action. Any person using one of these devices during a school activity can expect permanent confiscation of the device and ejection from the event. MS Parents should enter through Door B by the flagpole. Sixth grade students again have Family and Consum- er Science as one of their exploratory classes. All 6th, 7th, and 8th grade students create sewing proj- ects, as well as, learn in the kitchen. Sixth grade adds laundry, hygiene, and relationships units. All seventh grade students learn health/adolescence changes. Basics of finances are included in 8th grade.

Mark your calendar for the Middle School Book Fair com- ing on October 1st and 4th, 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. both nights during teacher conferences.  The book fair will have a whole new look with many great books to choose from!  Come check it out at the middle school library!   We are open to the public so please come and view our wide selec- tion of books. Books make great gifts for the holidays. Our goal is to earn enough money to purchase books for our library so we can continue to give our students new choices as well as continue a book series they are currently reading. Another goal is to take any donated monies we receive and try to help every student in our school win a free book and promote reading. During the same hours as the Book Fair we will also host a We would love donated homemade or purchased items like cookies, bars, cupcakes, donuts, treat bags, or other individ- ual goodies for the students to sell. These items may be brought to the school before 3:30 p.m. or during the hours of the book fair. The 2018-2019 year is underway for Athletic Boosters!
