Greetings from Leavelle McCampbell!

Our first quarter is almost over and it is hard to believe that the time has gone by so quickly. We have accomplished so much over the course of the first nine weeks.

MAP Testing for the Fall 2014 session has ended and we have students who made great gains. These students were rewarded with a MAP Gains Social on October 3. We have celebrated our Students of Character, with 38 students recognized in September. I was pleased to see so many students acknowledged for their efforts.

We have several events from mid-October to November. A Good Behavior Social will be held on October 23, with another Character Recognition Breakfast scheduled for October 24. Our PTO will sponsor a Fall Harvest Dance on October 24, from 5:30-7:30 PM. First Quarter Awards Day will be held on October 31 at 8:30 AM. A Veteran’s Day Assembly will be held on November 6 at 9AM, while a dance to benefit the Empty Stocking Fund will be held from 3:30 – 5:30 on the same day. The November Character Recognition Breakfast will be held on November 21.

Class Spelling Bees will be held on November 5, while the school Spelling Bee will be on November 25. LMMS will host a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math) Night on November 3, from 6 – 7:30.

Friday, October 17, will be a Teacher Work Day (No school for students!) and there will be no classes on October 27. On October 27, however, you will be able to come to school and pick up your student’s report cards. School will be open from 12-6. Tuesday, November 4 is Election Day (No school). Thanksgiving Holidays are November 26-28.

Parents, we also have after school tutoring that has started. This is held on Mondays and Tuesdays from 3:30-4:30. Tutoring will be available for all subject areas. Please contact your child’s teacher for details and a sign up form.

I am proud to be associated with such a great group of students and such a dedicated staff. It is great to be able to see all of our students grow as the year has progressed.

Required Vaccine
 ATTENTION PARENTS OF UPCOMING 7TH GRADE STUDENTS-PLEASE READ:
South Carolina law requires that all students entering 7th grade receive one (1) dose of Tdap vaccine (tetanus, diphtheria, and pertussis). Now is a good time to make an appointment for your child to receive this immunization if you have not already done so.  If your child has already received this immunization, please bring this information with you on registration day.  If you have further questions regarding this requirement, please contact the main office.

In the event of inclement weather, if the school district calls for schools to start at a two-hour delay, Leavelle McCampbell will start at 9:45. If the school district calls for a two hour early release due to weather conditions, Leavelle McCampbell will dismiss at 1:20.
