    Richmond Math & Eureka Support for Parents:  In an effort to ensure that our parents are provided with opportunities to experience Richmond Math and to learn about the resources incorporated within this curriculum, the C&I Elementary Math team will host Richmond Math Parent Nights. The dates and locations of these events will be forthcoming. In addition, Great Minds has developed a Parent Support Page with Parent Tip Sheets that include suggested strategies and models, key vocabulary, and tips for supporting learning at home; Homework Helpers that provide examples similar to those found within student homework sheets; and Featured Strategies & Videos that demonstrate common models that are utilized within the Richmond Math curriculum. Please click this link to access these helpful Parent Tips.

    PTA Meeting: Please come out this Tuesday, from 6:00-7:30pm, for our monthly PTA meeting.  All families are welcomed to attend.

    Early Release Day: Tomorrow is an early release day, and students will be released at 1:15pm.  Parents, please be on time for afternoon pick up.

    First Quarter Report Cards: First quarter report cards will be distributed Monday, November 11th.

    MAP Family Report: The MAP Family Report will be sent home with students tomorrow, along with their report cards.  This report explains NWEA MAP testing and scores for the recent FALL 2019 administration.  Please feel free to contact the school if you have any questions or concerns.  

    Parent Teacher Conference Night: Parent Teacher Conferences will take place Monday, November 11th, from 2:00pm - 6:30pm.  All families are welcomed and we ask that you visit our website to sign up for an appointment slot to meet with your child’s teachers.

    Revised LMBMS Cell Phone Policy: LMBMS supports the RPS cell phone policy that all student cell phones must be powered off and not visible, and we are pleased that most of our students adhere to this policy.  Please remember, LMBMS faculty members have the right to confiscate phones from students who violate the policy.  If this happens, consequences are as follows: 1st time violators will receive their phone at the end of the school day.  2nd and 3rd time violators may have their phones picked up after school by a parent on Tuesdays or Thursdays.  Students who violate the policy 4 or more times will have their phone picked up by a parent after school on Wednesdays only.  If you have any questions or concerns, please call me at 804-319-3013.

    This concludes our new announcements for this week.  Please be reminded weekly parent messages are sent every Sunday and are also posted on our school's website under "School News". I look forward to seeing all students bright and early tomorrow morning.  Until then, have a great evening!

    Dr. Gaines, Principal
