     lms THE LMS PTO Directory is Online!

    The directory is a great way to stay in touch with other LMS families and students — especially in a socially distanced year.  All LMS are included in the PTO directory, but you can change things to match your preferences here: https://lakeridgemsparentclub.membershiptoolkit.com/home.  

    Review and update your family’s public contact information by clicking “register/login” and following the prompts. In one easy process, you can select the information you keep private, opt out of the directory entirely, and/or donate to the PTO.  Bookmark the link to access the LMS online directory throughout the year.  To add the LMS directory to your phone, download the Membership Toolkit App with these links:  https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/membership-toolkit/id912169276                                        https://play.google.com/store/apps/detailsid=com.membershiptoolkit.mobileapp

    Listen and Connect: How Parents Can Support Teens’ Mental Health Right Now~

    Supporting Students After Violent Media Events

    This week many eyes were on the disturbing events at our nation's capital, as they have been on many events across the country and in our metro area for the past several months.

    We know that students of all ages will have seen images of violence and unrest. As parents and educators, we must not only make sense of this for ourselves but also support our students in making sense of it as well.

     We recognize that each family has their own way of addressing such events, our educators are additional trusted adults in the lives of our students, who they will likely look to for reassurance and explanation. The conversations that will surely arise from these events at school and home present an opportunity to remind our students that we can and must disagree without disrespecting, dismissing, or harming others.

     Our teachers and staff use many resources in guiding these discussions. This is a quick resource here that was updated this week and maybe helpful for home or school.

    Please check in with each other, create safe places for students to reflect and process, and ask for help if you need it.
