The mission of LCMS is:

“Working together to meet the needs of young adolescents”

 LCMS consists of 33 teachers, two counselors, two administrators and 17 support staff whose job it is to understand that, in the life of a child, the middle school years are incredibly important.
Our priority is that the student comes first.  Our master schedule, teaching strategies and the activities that we offer are all geared toward giving every student a great opportunity at being successful.  We want our students to feel safe and we want them to have fun in a great environment.
Students will be provided a firm foundation in math, science, reading, language arts and social studies.  We also provide students the opportunity to excel with our challenge program. We want our courses to be academically challenging and we want to be able to support students when they find things difficult and have questions.
In addition to our core curriculum, students will explore a variety of interests in family and consumer science, art, computer applications, music, industrial technology and guidance.
Students can also elect to take courses in chorus, band, orchestra, and graphic art.  LCMS students are very competitive in various academic, leadership and fine arts competitions and activities.  We also have many students who get involved in football, volleyball, basketball, wrestling and track.  Middle school is the time to be involved!
We look forward to working with you and your child.  If you have any questions, please feel free to stop in or contact me at steve.shanks@lemarscsd.org or call me at 712-546-7022.
