|Stella soaring in her role for Seussical|
Happy Birthday to the LMS Lightning Round. This week the blog turns two years old! In two years the blog has been viewed over 70,000 times! This is remarkable for our school. Thank you for your support.
Last week we had such a treat from the students and staff involved with the Seussical the Musical. On Friday and Saturday, the kids sung all of the favorite Seuss rhymes. The set was bright and cheery. The students even got a chance to fly around the stage. A big thank you to Mrs. Booz and Ms. Zeiters for their hard work and determination to make this a success.
This Saturday we will be hosting the first Millville Youth Empowerment Summit at Lakeside Middle School. The event starts at 8:30 AM with free food and registration. At 9:00 AM all of the parents and students will gather in the Auditorium for the Kickoff from City Commissioner (and LMS Parent) Bruce Cooper. He will be introducing the Keynote, Jennifer Webb-McRae, the Cumberland County Prosecutor. After that the students and parents will have an opportunity to go to three sessions of their choice (empowerment, leadership, mindfulness, law enforcement, yoga, and much more). After the breakout sessions, the students will take the stage for the Student Ignite Session. Our closing keynote is aspiring US Assemblymen (and former LMS teacher) Sean Thom. Students will receive giveaways and free food! Be sure to pre-register for the Summit by clicking here.
