The View From LMC:

On SEPTEMBER 20, 1973, in a highly publicized “Battle of the Sexes” tennis match, top women’s player Billie Jean King, 29, beats Bobby Riggs, 55, a former No. 1 ranked men’s player. Riggs (1918-1995), a self-proclaimed male chauvinist, had boasted women were inferior. Riggs said they couldn’t handle the pressure of the game. He could beat any female player. King beat Riggs 6-4, 6-3, 6-3.

If You are a Student with an iPad:

This announcement is for you. Your iPad is a learning AND communication device. Checking your email is a student responsibility. Not optional but an expectation. PLEASE add an alarm to your iPad if you need one, but you need to check your email at the beginning and end of every school day - and more often, if possible.

Forgotten Items

CHECK THE OFFICE SHELF. There is a black shelf in the office is the Island of Forgotten Items dropped off by parents. The office does not call you down forgotten items. It is the student’s responsibility to come seek and find your forgotten items on the shelf. Come and look any time between classes. Your parent may email you to let you know it is here. Your email is [email protected]

Lost & Found

Lost & Found is outside of the cafeteria doors across from the bathrooms. Look for your items. They are donated several times a year when the shelf is full. THAT SHELF IS NOT a place to put binders and iPads while you eat lunch. Binders and iPads MUST be in lockers during lunch.
