2nd Annual VBCPS Beach Bags Food Drive
The LMS COMMUNITY SERVICE CLUB is conducting the 2nd Annual VBCPS Beach Bags Food Drive here at LMS! Beach Bags is a food program designed to assist students in having meals when they are away from school and sustain them over the weekends. The food bank that supplies Beach Bags is always in need and asking for our help. Last year we collected and donated 12 huge boxes full of food!
> > > Click Here for the flyer that identifies the types of non-perishable foods we are looking for as donations.
There are 2 boxes in the main lobby to place donations. As an incentive, this year it's Girls vs. Boys for bragging rights! All students and L.M.S. supporters are encouraged to donate!
Thank you as always for helping out our Community Service Club.
A Look at Assessment
To accurately measure student mastery of core knowledge and demonstration of 21st century skills, Virginia Beach City Public Schools (VBCPS) uses a variety of assessments including, but not limited to, performance tasks, multiple-choice tests and essays. Many of the assessments students take are required by the state and federal departments of education to measure student progress toward performance benchmarks. Local assessments (locally- and externally-developed) are used to monitor student progress, differentiate instruction, identify students for participation in specific programs and measure students' mastery of 21st century skills.
To help parents better understand the various tests students take, their purpose and why they are important, the school division has developed this informational brochure.
