8th Grade Time Capsules
Attention 8th Grade Parents: The students in the Language Arts 8 classes are creating a personal time capsule that will be delivered to them in May of their senior year. Would you like to surprise your child with a letter in the time capsule? Letters may be written by parents, grandparents, siblings, etc.
The content of the letter is up to you. The students will reflect on the following categories in their writing: me, my world, people in my life, my past, what I do, my future. You may email a letter to your child’s LA8 teacher (Mrs. Veldman, Mrs. Carr, or Mrs. Johnson), drop it off in the office, or mail it to LMS. This is an optional activity to enrich the project, but we know your child will appreciate reading your writing.
The letter should be delivered to school by Friday, May 26. Thank you for your cooperation in this project.
8th Grade Honors Night on June 1st
Our annual Honor’s Night will be Thursday, June 1 at 7:00 p.m. in the Lakeshore High School Auditorium. Our staff will be honoring 8th graders that have earned honor roll recognition.
We will also be honoring those 8th graders that have participated in various activities throughout the year. You will be notified via Power Parent Announcement if your student has earned an award. Please join us in this celebration of our 8th graders!
Volunteers are needed for the Concession Stand!
Your LMS PTO provides a Concession Stand for your students after school on days that we host an athletic event. We are in need of a few more volunteers to help the line move more quickly so your student can catch all of the event!
Please call the middle school office at 269.428.1408 if you’d like to participate. Your hungry students will REALLY appreciate it!
Lakeshore Athletic Summer Camps
The purpose of the Lakeshore Lancer athletic camps is to involve as many young students in athletics as possible. The goal is to foster a love and interest in the various sports that students may compete in during their high school years.
The main focus will be on teaching technique and various skills while developing sportsmanship, teamwork, and the value of hard work that may be applied in all areas of their lives. This year there will be summer camps for basketball, football, softball, volleyball, soccer, and tennis.

New STEM Courses and Project Lead the Way
Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is a nationally recognized Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) curriculum.
