New STEM Courses and Project Lead the Way
Project Lead the Way (PLTW) is a nationally recognized Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math (STEM) curriculum. The PLTW curriculum features an engaging, hands-on classroom environment and empowers students to develop in-demand knowledge and skills they need to thrive. STEM careers are the fastest growing career pathways in the United States.
Please read and consider LHS’ new STEM classes that use the Project Lead the Way (PLTW) curriculum and program design. This year we’ve introduced two new courses that begin a pathway in Engineering and Computer Science. Attached to this message is a flyer describing the program and the classes. For more information, please visit the website: www.pltw.org.

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!
Lancers Place at the Cloverleaf Spelling Bee
The Cloverleaf Spelling Bee was held at Lake Michigan College’s Grand Upton Hall on Monday, February 13. As the top finishers in LMS’ spelling bee in January, the following students proudly represented Lakeshore Middle School —7th grader Vayshnav M., 8th grader Sam S., and 8th grader Sanju K. (who as an alternate found out that she was going to be in the bee on the morning of the event).
Out of 58 spellers all three LMS spellers finished in the top 20. Sanju finished in 18th place, 7th grader Vayshnav M. finished in 11th place, and 8th grader Sam S. was the champion of the spelling bee. As the first place winner, he received an all-expense paid trip to Washington DC to participate in the National Spelling Bee at the end of May. Congratulations to these three spellers on a great performance, and special congratulations to Sam on placing first in the Cloverleaf Spelling Bee!
