Laurens-Marathon CSD would like to thank Charger Pride and Allison Price for the $269.00 they gave the school for the elementary library.  The money was spent on good reading for the little people, like reprints of the Dick and Jane books from the 1950s, Caldecott Honor winner A Different Pond, Diary of a Wimpy Kid series, Heartland series, Dork Diaries series, and more entries in the I Survived series (I Survived Pearl Harbor, etc. ).  Without their support, our libraries wouldn't have much in the way of new books this year, so THANK YOU.

Please be sure to check the weather for the day!!  It is very important to wear the appropriate clothing to go outside for recess!!

Remember to save “Box Tops for Education” for our LM School!!!  FYI $146.40 has already been collected this year!  Thank you to all who have brought your BOX TOPS in…please continue!!!

DOOR USAGE FOR ALL:  An email or a letter has been sent to all parents of our LM students pertaining to the available door usage throughout a day of school.  We encourage ALL to take time and read through it carefully.  This is a proactive move to make us better prepared in case a security issue presents itself.  Thank you in advance for your cooperation in this matter.
