Lexington Middle School Informational Night

Parent Night Info Night Flier 2018

LEXINGTON MIDDLE SCHOOL COURSE INFORMATIONAL NIGHTS

LMS will host informational nights for parents of rising 6th graders who will attend Lexington Middle School in 2018-2019.

Lexington Elementary School parents are invited to attend Thursday, February 15th, from 6:00 – 7:00pm in the LMS Theater.

Come learn about the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program, course offering, the course selection process, and how LMS inspires, prepares, and empowers our students to make their world a better place!

This meeting will not replace the spring parent meetings about transitioning to middle school, but will help you and your child make the most informed class choice decisions for next year.

If you have any questions, call Brenden Cafferty at 803-821-3700 at LMS.

*If the night designated for your school does not work for you, feel free to come on the other night, Tuesday, February 13th from 6:00-7:00pm in the LMS Theater.

Classroom Visits Protocol

CLASSROOM VISITS: Parents are welcome to observe in the classrooms; however, it is important not to interrupt instructional activities and supervision for which our teachers are responsible. Please write a note or request a conference rather than ask a teacher to stop teaching or supervising students for a quick question or chat. When observing in the classroom, parents should not bring small children who may easily become restless or disruptive. Cell phones should be turned off.

If parents request a classroom visit to observe instruction, we require that the teacher be notified a minimum of 24 hours in advance.  The teacher and parent will determine what time the observation will take place, to ensure that the observation will take place during an instructional block.  The planned observation will also allow the teacher to inform the students of the “visitor” that will be in the classroom.  This will help to minimize any disruption to classroom instruction.  Typically, a parent may request a visit after a teacher or guidance conference in which a child’s behavior has been discussed or something about the instruction the parent may not understand.

We discourage parental requests to visit classroom without a particular purpose because of the interruption to instruction. We suggest that parents volunteer in the classroom or with an activity or special event. However, in unusual circumstances an unannounced classroom visit may be granted by an administrator and accompanied by an administrator during the brief visit.
