A note from our School Nurse regarding medications:
We are coming to the close of the school year. If you have any medication (prescription or over the counter) in the clinic, you will need to pick it up on or before the end of the school year. Any medication left in the clinic on the last day of school will be disposed of. We cannot keep medication in the clinic over the summer.

Attention – Parents and Students going to Harrison next year:
On Friday April 20 rising 9th grade Harrison students received their 2018-2019 Course Summary Profiles. These are COURSE REQUESTS not their schedule. Students need to look over it and make sure they have English/math/science/social studies on their schedule. There should be 7-8 classes on their sheet. This is not a drop/add period. If a CORE CLASS is wrong students/parents will need to fill out a waiver at Harrison High School. (Same policy as before) There will be a small window at the beginning of the year for waivers as well. If an elective is not correct they will work that out at the beginning of the year.
If a student has a problem, write it on the paper and bring it to Ms. Fields or Ms. Hobgood in the LMMS Counseling who will make a copy and send it to Harrison. Any other questions students and parents can contact Harrison High School.
Harrison is offering the Summer Academy in the month of June! Incoming 9th graders are eligible to take Health and/or Personal Fitness (BPE) for high school credit. This is an excellent opportunity for students to make room in their schedule to take classes they are interested in during the school year as well as the class needed for their extra-curricular activities. For example, band, orchestra, and athletes have specific courses required to participate in that activity.

Dear LMMS Community,
As you may know, we have two sweet 6th grade students who lost their home in a house fire the week before Spring Break. They are currently living in a transitional housing situation while insurance works out the details. The parents are now driving the kids to and from school each day and all of their clothing has been sent to the cleaners to remove the smoke and soot residue; it will not be returned until the end of May. Their most immediate needs are gas for travel and clothing. We will be hosting a gift card drive for the family. They have requested gift cards to Target for clothing and to RaceTrac and Kroger for gas. If you would like to donate a gift card, please give them to the LMMS Bookkeeper. Thanks so much!

1) If you are already registered and get a friend to register (new), you will $30 Off and your friend will get $30 Off the original price of $275

3) You can have up to 2 friends ($30 off for each)
**** Logistics (important) – all parties register on-line -as normal (both you and friend(s)). After registering, send Jack Harpring an email ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) stating your child’s name and friend’s child name,their age and date of registration – stating you want the ‘$30 Off Incentive’ for “Bring A Friend”. The ‘friend’ does not need to send me the e-mail –only the main person. We will in turn, credit you and your friend’s Credit Card (thru the Registration process)
Why ? We have moved locations this year and getting the ‘word’ out about our camp at the new location takes time. To increase participation so that the kids will have a meaningful camp and experience, we are offering an incentive.
