Dear LKMS Families and Community,
In this season of Thanksgiving, we want to express our appreciation to you for all of the support and understanding you have shown to our school community during this transition back to full-time school. While the road to “normalcy” in and out of school has been rocky at times, our students and staff are persevering through and we are slowly but surely getting back to “Leopard Pride.”
We ask for your help with a few reminders to help us in these transitional times.
Students are asked not to wear pajama pants and/or slippers to school. While these may have been the preferred attire during online virtual learning, it is not appropriate for in-school attire.
In addition, we are concerned that students are using their backpacks during the school day for more than the intended use of laptop protection. In fact, we have observed students walking through the halls with overstuffed, heavy backpacks while carrying their laptops. Please remind students that if the laptop falls and breaks under these conditions, the student/family will be responsible for replacement. Encourage students to use their lockers to store lunch bags, books/notebooks for am/pm classes, coats, etc. (There are no restrictions on when students can access their lockers). Thank you for your assistance in protecting the laptops and your children’s backs!
We look forward to “seeing” you next week during our virtual Parent-Teacher Conferences.
May you have a wonderful Thanksgiving holiday and enjoy the time off with family and friends.
Ms. Lublin and Mrs. Ketterman

Coming in December
Lime Kiln Middle School Families,
LKMS will host its third Snow Leopard Bonanza (December 23) and we need your help! The Snow Leopard Bonanza is a part of our Positive Behavior Interventions and Supports (PBIS) reward system. Students will use their Snow Leopard raffle tickets they will earn in classes to win prizes. Students will earn raffle tickets by showing Respectful, Organized, Achieving and Responsible behavior. Parents/Guardians and Community, please consider donating items to support our raffle and keep us in mind when you are cleaning out before the gift giving season or while you may be out shopping. Donations may include: posters, movie tickets, sports equipment, stuffed animals, books, cool crafts, nail polish, earbuds, and cell phone cases, popular teen items, clothes, etc. The items should be new or very gently used. Donations should be clearly labeled Snow Leopard Bonanza and turned in to the LKMS Front Office by Wednesday, December 10, so items can be cataloged and advertised to students. The Snow Leopard Bonanza will be held on December 21 and 22. Prizes will be sent home with students on December 22.
Without your support this exciting event would not be possible. If you have any questions, please email Stefanie_Taylor@hcpss.org
Thank you for your continued support of Lime Kiln Middle School!
