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!
On Tuesday, March 7, eighth and ninth grade students attended Eva Kor’s presentation in the high school auditorium. A Holocaust survivor, forgiveness advocate, and revered public speaker, Eva has emerged through a life of trauma as a brilliant example of the power of the human spirit to overcome.
For over an hour, she shared with the students about her experiences in Auschwitz where she and her twin sister, Miriam, were part of a group of children used as human guinea pigs in genetic experiments under the direction of the now-infamous Dr. Josef Mengele. Eva became gravely ill as a result of these experiments, but through sheer determination, she stayed alive and helped Miriam survive.
After her presentation, there was a short question and answer session followed by a book-signing from Eva where she answered additional questions and took selfies and signed books with students, parents, and staff. We are thankful for the Lakeshore Excellence Foundation for sponsoring this event and providing an amazing opportunity for our students. More information about Eva Kor can be found at the website for her museum and non-profit organization that she founded, candlesholocaustmuseum.org.
