Friday, April 17 - High School Athletics
High schools have placed on their websites information regarding Athletic/Sports Summer Camps. Below are links to the high schools sites.
Friday, April 10 - Longleaf Athletic Update
1. On Saturday, April 18, at 10am, at the Providence Northeast Moore Center for Orthopedics (Building 114), the Moore Clinic will host a mass physical day--physical fee is only $10. This is a great opportunity to get your physical done for the 2015-2016 school year. If interested, please pick up a physical packet at the Longleaf front desk, sign up your athlete on the physical roster, and pay your $10 fee directly to Longleaf Middle School. Sign-up closes at 12 noon on Thursday, April 16--sign-up at the Longleaf front desk. Students are to take the physical packet with them to the Moore Clinic on April 18 at 10am.
2. For all rising 9th graders (current 8th graders), if you are interested in playing a sport in high school, your best source for information will be to visit the website of the high school you will be attending. Information is available now on the high school websites.
3. For all students preparing to play a sport next school year, please be aware that academic eligibility to participate in athletics is based upon 1) a student being academically promoted to the next grade level and 2) semester final grades. For example, a rising 7th or 8th grade student who wishes to play a fall sport (cheerleading, football, volleyball, and basketball), must be promoted to the next grade academically and have an overall second semester average from the previous school year of a 77--all classes are included in this average. These requirements are based upon South Carolina High School League and Richland School District Two guidelines for 7th and 8th grade participation in athletics.
Friday, April 10 - Eighth Grade Promotion Ceremony
LMS eighth grade promotion ceremony will be held on Wednesday, June 3rd.
Friday, April 10 - Marble Slab Fundraiser Update
Taking an order:
When you look on the back of the order form, you see the first two columns for customer name and address. The next column is for the item number. We are only selling four items: #100 small ice cream cake, #200 medium ice cream cake, #300 large ice cream cake, and #400 2 pre-packed quarts of ice cream. The customer will take the coupon or voucher that you sell him or her and go to Marble Slab to select their actual type of ice cream cake or flavors of pre-packed ice cream. We will only deliver the voucher / coupon to the customer, not the actual ice cream. The customer has to get the ice cream from Marble Slab. The coupon is good for one year, so the customer has some time to choose when to use it.
Students are to return their order forms and and money to their homeroom teachers on Wednesday, April 22 (the deadline has been extended). The vouchers will be delivered around May 4.
Good luck! And be a top-seller!
Wednesday, March 11 - State Testing
New laws passed by the South Carolina General Assembly have
resulted in new tests that will be administered during the spring of 2015
throughout our state. Students in
Grades 3-8 will take a new, timed test this school year called ACT Aspire. In
Richland Two, our students will take the paper and pencil ACT Aspire tests for
writing, English, reading and mathematics. They will not take the optional ACT
Aspire test for science that some districts may use. This new test will
help teachers understand where their students are succeeding and where extra
help or academic focus is needed. By having a better understanding of a
student’s skills, abilities, and knowledge, parents and teachers can determine
what students need to know to be successful in school in the future.
Students in Grades 4-8 will
continue to take SCPASS for science and social studies. Schools have the option
of administering SCPASS as an online test or a paper and pencil test.
Third-graders will not take any state tests for science and social studies.
