Pick-Up the Tab Contest
Teachers and More are sponsoring a Pick-Up the Tab contest for the Ronald McDonald House of Durham, North Carolina. Pop your tabs and bring them to your homeroom teacher. Tabs may be found on can drinks, pet food, canned foods and lots of other places! These tabs will then be recycled and the money collected will pay for meals, laundry facilities, computers, and much more for the families staying at the Ronald McDonald House. A Ronald McDonald House is a “home away from home” for families with critically ill children. Critically ill means really sick!! The class from each grade level with the most pull tabs will receive a fantastic bag of goodies for each student! The contest begins February 13th and ends on February 28th.

BYOD Donation Initiative
Do you have an old smart phone or tablet lying around your house gathering dust? We would love to help you clear the clutter!
Students at LMS are allowed to bring their own device to school—we call it BYOD (Bring Your Own Device). Teachers are developing new and exciting lessons incorporating student devices, but many of our students either do not own or are not allowed to bring devices to school. Additionally, while we have many technology resources, we do not have enough to provide a 1:1 environment in every classroom.
Part of our answer to the ever-growing technological needs of our classes is your old devices! An old smartphone or tablet, though disabled for calling and texting, is still a viable option as a web browser or support for other educational applications.
If you have recently upgraded your phone or tablet and are willing to donate your older devices to Landstown Middle School for our student use, please consider bringing them to our front desk attendant.
We ask that you take a few simple steps to ensure the devices are cleared to use by our students:
1. Clear the phone of apps and usage history.
2. Remove any password protections.
3. Reset the phone to its factory settings.
4. Bag the phone and its charger (if you have it) in a clear plastic zipper bag.
5. Turn the phone in at the front desk or main office.
Our students and teachers will appreciate and find good use for those devices! Thank you in advance for your donation to our BYOD cause.

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.
- Membership is $6. Quarterly Student Member's only activities will be included in all student memberships.
