International Night – Date Change:

Due to a conflict in dates, LMMS International Night has been moved to Thursday, February 8th. While International Night has been on the official LMMS calendar since last May, and we were only recently informed of the conflicting date, we are moving nights because of an event that impacts a majority of our 8th grade students (Harrison 8th Grade Open House). We look forward to another very successful LMMS International Night with participation from all three grade levels. Thank you for your understanding and flexibility.

 


A Note from the School Nurse

Flu Season is Here!         

Flu is a serious contagious disease that can lead to hospitalization and even death. 

You have the power to protect yourself and your family this season with these three actions to fight flu.

  1. Get a flu vaccine. Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine by the end of October, if possible. A yearly flu vaccine is the first and most important step in protecting against the flu. As long a flu viruses are circulating, it is not too late to get vaccinated!
  2. Take everyday actions to stop the spread of germs. Wash your hands often with soap and water, cover your nose and mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze, and wash your hands often with soap and water. If you become sick, limit your contact with others to keep from infecting them.
  3. Take flu antiviral drugs if your doctor prescribes them. If you get the flu, medicine, called antiviral drugs, can be used to treat flu illness. Antiviral drugs can make illness milder and shorten the time you are sick. They may also prevent serious flu complications.

 

School store is in need of help. We need to have at least 2 adults per morning to run the store. We are short people on Tuesday, Thursday and Fridays. We need help from 8:45 to 9:15 am. If you would like to help please contact Rebecca Harriss at rebecca@harriss.info  


Career Day 2018

LMMS Friends and Family,

We are looking for parents who would like to act as “sharks” in the classroom on LMMS Career Day, January 26th.  Two or three “sharks” would sit in a panel in front of the classroom and listen to students’ ideas for our 2nd annual Eagle Entrepreneurial Extravaganza (business fair). After listening, the “sharks” would give students feedback on their product or service business ideas. Parents do not have to own their own business to be one of our “sharks.”  

The EEE will take place on Friday, February 16th.  In order to help our students make the greatest business of all, we’d love to invite YOU to be a “shark” to mentor students about their ideas. January 26th is LMMS’s Career Day, and in 7th grade we’re inviting any parent who would like to help our 12 and 13 year olds out with business design, please join us! This will be fun!

Use this sign up genius link to volunteer:

Lost Mountain cannot be the amazing community it is without you, so THANK YOU for taking the time to consider helping us out.

For those of you who do sign up to help and attend Career Day, more information will come to you in early January, but feel free to reach out to Jaime Williams (Jaime.williams@cobbk12.org) with pressing questions or suggestions.

A Message from our Georgia PTA:

Happy New Year PTA Leaders and Members,
 
2018 is here and it’s time for new beginnings.  On March 29, 2017, Georgia PTA was put on probation due to actions that violated National PTA’s Standards of Affiliation.  In September, National PTA, pleased with the progress Georgia PTA had made towards resolving those issues, updated our status to allow Georgia to participate in Reflections but left probation in place to provide additional support as the new leadership worked to get the Association back on track. 
 
We are pleased to announce that on December 20, National PTA removed Georgia PTA from probation! Georgia PTA is now in good standing with National PTA’s Standards of Affiliation.
 
Two stipulations were stated that need to be addressed:
 

  • Georgia PTA’s 2016-17 audit must be completed with verification submitted to National PTA no later than January 31, 2018. Verification will include a copy of the auditor’s management letter and any notations included in the audit.
    • Status update: Preliminary audit has been completed.  Draft of auditor notes has been received and Georgia PTA is creating a new financial controls procedure document to incorporate auditor’s recommendations.
  • Revised Georgia PTA Policies and Procedures must be submitted to National PTA no later than May 1, 2018.  Policies must align with the hierarchy of governing documents.
    • Status update: Policies and Procedures have been updated and inconsistencies between P&P and Bylaws have been corrected.  Section 13 has been removed in entirety.  A new Conflict Resolution stand alonedocument is being developed.  Any and all policies that affect member procedures and rights will be removed and posted separately on the Georgia PTA website.  Specifically, all information about elections will be in a stand alone document that will be posted and available for any member to see.
