LMMS Family Newsletter 


All School Announcements 

  • 7th Grade Families: Today, our 7th  students learned about Hope Squad and nominated their peers to be part of Hope Squad. Hope Squad is a peer-to-peer suicide prevention program. With Hope Squad, nominated students are taught how to recognize the warning signs and symptoms of distress and are empowered to help their friends and classmates by notifying a trusted adult if needed.   
    • The students watched a short video and then were asked to nominate at least three students in 7th  that they feel would make a good member of Hope Squad. After these nominations, staff members will vet the student nominations and select the Hope Squad members.   
    • It is an honor to be part of Hope Squad and it is absolutely voluntary. Students who were selected and their families will be notified by the end of October. Students will only be permitted to participate in Hope Squad with parental permission.   
    • Please contact Elyse Parker, Assistant Principal at LMMS, at [email protected] if you have any questions or concerns.   
  • 6th Grade Families: 6th Grade Fall Field Day will be held 9/15 (rain date 9/22). Please ensure you have updated the portal for your 6th-grade students so they can participate!  
    • This is our second annual fall field day to focus on community building and collaboration with our 6th-grade classrooms.  
    • 6th grade will also have a track and field day in the spring.  


  • Little Miami Spirit Day – Friday, September 8th. Students are encouraged to wear their Little Miami Spirit Wear or Green and Gold!

  • Student Groups – Please see the attached link if you are interested in your student participating in any student groups this year: 


  • Project Pass – Project Pass is held Tuesday and Thursday from the end of the school day until 3:30 
    • Project Pass is an afterschool supervised time for students to work on homework and get extra help with a class/subject area.  
    • This year, we will have Project Pass on Tuesday and Thursday from the end of the school day until 3:30. An aide will sit with students from 2:05 until 2:35 while teachers have their end-of-the-day meetings and then work with students from 2:25 - 3:30. 
    • We will send a new monthly form to sign up for Project Pass.  
    • We will not have subject-specific days this year and students should come prepared with work they must complete.  
    • If your student is not attending a session you signed up for, contact [email protected].  
    • If we cancel the project pass, we will announce the end of the day and make every effort to email parents. 
    • To sign a student up for Project Pass, please complete the form below.  Although we ask that you list who will pick up, this is to have a contact person. Just let your student know who to expect.
