As we wrap up this exciting week of learning at LME in anticipation of our first holiday break, we are truly grateful for the following gifts:
1. Our Midlothian Education Foundation surprised four of our extraordinary teachers today with a grant award of $3,934.95 for the clever “Telling Stories, One Stop At A Time” animation club. Under the outstanding direction of Amy Clark, Andrew Morgan, Scott Fiorenza, and Katie Bergvall, students will work with innovative animation stop-motion to create digital stories and more during presentations. Stop-motion software allows artists to work one frame at a time to create video and moving images using pictures drawn with sound added later. Think of the big animated movies out today; this is what our learners will use! Congratulations to our animated team and many thanks, MEF!
2. The LME learning community gathered and gave 4,939 canned and boxed food items today during LME Rally! WOW! Winning classes are Kinder = Mr. Pendley, 1st = Mrs. L. Bergvall, 2nd = Mrs. King, 3rd = Mrs. Milne, 4th = Mrs. Dickard, and 5th = Mrs. Lassetter. Thanks for giving time, service, and resources to those most in need this holiday season!
3. Finally, our KC (Kindness and Compassion) Club designed and implemented The Thankful Tree (like the The Giving Tree) for our campus while sharing ways and ideas for helping others to be thankful for each day. The response to their video and the idea truly “leaves” us breathless…way to go!
Here’s hoping you enJOY a fun, festive, fall holiday with those you hold dear. May the blessings of the season remind us all to #LoveServeCare everyday! 🙂
Note: Students have a holiday from November 24 – 28; we will see everyone back on Monday, December 1st!
