A Spirit of Community
LMSD takes pride in being a central part of the community. We value the diverse, dynamic talents of every member of our community and their enduring support for public education. We honor this spirit through consistent outreach and the creation of meaningful relationships to promote experiential learning, ongoing service, and engagement that will strengthen and support the student experience during the LMSD years and beyond.
"One of my goals this year is to reach out to the families of my students and survey their expertise in regards to our units of study in class. One parent, who studies Constitutional Law, came in and spoke to each of my classes about the Civil War and the impact of the 13th, 14th and 15th Amendments and their interpretation in today’s society. This presentation made history seem more real to students."
"The new lunch and learn schedule creates more frequent opportunities to invite community-based business owners into the school to help share their experiences. This frequent contact helps students to see practical applications for the reading, writing, speaking and listening skills they’re learning in the classroom."
"Our class makes breakfast bags and collects food to be distributed in the community as part of learning about hunger and homelessness. When we visit the food bank, not only are we able to learn how it works, but we’re also able to contribute to it and really feel part of community outside our classroom."
