Valentine's Day is for everyone! Our sweet LMS students showed their compassion this year by sharing their love. Mr. Izzard says, "Here is a photo of our students' Valentine cards that we sent to The Orchards nursing home in Harper Woods. I would especially like to thank Ms. McSherry, Ms. Mitchell, Mr. Lonsway and the rest of the teachers at Lincoln Middle School who helped in this endeavor. We are teaching our kids to think about others and develop empathy and sympathy for individuals that they don't even know. One student even wrote a poem saying that if this resident didn't have a Valentine, that they would be their valentine. Such outpouring of love was evident in these cards, and it was moving to read them."

Elementary families: When the littles wake you up next Saturday and say, "What are we DOING today?" you can say, "We're getting free breakfast and books, and meeting a super cool author!" See the flyer below for information about Angela Joy at MCC on Twelve Mile on February 24. It will be a great event as part of the MISD Macomb Reads series..

We're still talking about Friday's LMS Friendship Games around here. The staff vs. student game was so much fun, although the staff members may have needed a weekend ice bath after all that hustling. Our student athletes showed their stuff as well, but youth is on their side regardless of the end score! The LMS Cheer and Stomp team was right there to support and have obviously been practicing diligently. Enjoy a few pictures, but make sure you attend their last game in person tonight at 4:30, being held at Wilkinson in Madison Heights.
