·         Did you lose your jacket? Missing a shoe? Wondering where you left a shirt? Make sure you check the cafeteria lost and found today! All items will be picked on Thursday, so be sure and stop by and make sure your stuff is not in the pile.

·         Students and Staff: On the wall outside Room 38, you will see the Kind Tree. The intent of the Kind Tree is for students and staff to watch out each day for a student doing an act of kindness towards another student or staff member. There will be a box of blank leaves next to the Kind Tree where a student or staff member can fill it out when they see an act of kindness. There will be an example as to how the leaves should be filled out on the box of blank leaves. They will then put the act of kindness leaf in the box labeled “Act of Kindness”. Let’s fill the tree with leaves by the end of the school year! 

·         Today’s kindness quote is “Don’t wait for people to be friendly, show them how”. (Author unknown) Today’s kindness activity is “Get to Know Your Peeps!” Hidden throughout the building this morning are 25 yellow, oval-shaped “chicks.” If you find one, bring it outside to Mrs. Pickens during your lunch break. You will draw a friendship building activity from a basket. Upon completion of your activity, you’ll receive a prize.

·         Attention all National Junior Honor Society members: tonight is the induction of new members. If you are already a member of NJHS please attend tonight's ceremony. If you are a new member please attend the dress rehearsal in the cafeteria during advisory as soon as the announcements are over. Induction is tonight in the Hoyle gym at 7:00pm. Thanks.

·         Centennials' varsity volleyball coach Heather Ward will be here on Friday to talk to incoming freshmen. If you are interested come to the Hoyle gym during advisory this Friday after the announcements.

·         If you are interested in being a member of the 2014-15 Yearbook Staff, remember to get an application packet and turn it in no later than May 6. Applications are still available in the library; talk to Mrs. Baker for more information. Don't wait til the last minute -- do a good job to earn a spot on this team!

·         If you would like your very own copy of any of the books in Jennifer Nielsen's Ascendance trilogy, you can purchase them at a big discount at lunch this week! Paperbacks are $5 and hardcovers are $11. Get your copy before they run out -- the author will be here at LSMS on Thursday afternoon!

·         Love to dance? Want to learn some cool new moves? Sweet Liberty dance team is holding their annual Spring Kids dance clinic next week, Tuesday through Friday. This is open to all middle school students, girls and guys! If there are enough guys, we will have an all-male hip-hop class again this year. So grab a flier from the front office or see Miss Lawton in room 33 for more information.

·         Congrats to the LSMS A-tennis team. They won 13 out of their 16 matches last Thursday against Meridian. Winning easily were Anna Bradburn, John Shieh, Ashwin Shiyam, Julia Leitzinger, and the other double's players. As our opponents know, when it comes to Lowell Scott middle school---LOVE HURTS!

·         Do you love photography? Design? Writing? Are you a hard worker with great ideas? Would you like to help make a beautiful published book next year? Well, if you're interested in being a part of the YEARBOOK STAFF, please go to the library after the Pledge of Allegiance today for more information.

·         Author Jennifer Nielsen is visiting Lowell Scott this week. If you'd like to have her autograph in your own copy of her books, you can purchase them outside the lunchroom this week. They are discounted to $5 for paperbacks and $11 for hardcovers, while supplies last! Talk to Mrs. Baker in the library if you have any questions.

·         For the next six weeks, Lowell Scott students and staff will highlight character traits related to kindness. This week’s theme is “Friendship”. Dalai Lama, a spiritual leader, said “The greatest degree of inner tranquility comes from the development of love and compassion. The more we care for the happiness of others, the greater is our own sense of well-being.”
