7th grade Invention Convention is underway. Our young inventors are hard at work pitching their ideas to judges, staff and fellow students. Nice work seventh grade!
Dear LMS Chorus, Our accompanist, Carol Lander, has broken her arm. She is unable to play piano for a few weeks. As our chorus students have worked very hard and are very proud of our "Songs for the Journey" project, we want to ensure that we set them up for success at the recording studio and concert. Mrs. Lander is a crucial part of what we do; both for her musical skills and her connection with the kids. The students and I all feel that waiting for her to heal is the best option. So, we have postponed our recording session to Friday, April 26th, and the concert to Monday, April 29th. We feel that this was in the best interest of the group. We look forward to performing for you then. Thanks for your understanding and flexibility.

The Leonard Middle Chorus in Old Town, Maine, is using music as a way to support cancer patients, survivors, and caretakers. These are just a few of the many talented young musicians who have been hard at work preparing to spend a day at a recording studio in early March. While there, the LMS Chorus will record four songs, all of which fit their chosen theme of “Songs for the Journey”. These beautiful songs, each with a message of unity/support/strength, will be available for purchase on a flash drive for $12. All proceeds from sales will be donated to EMMC’s Champion the Cure to support local cancer research. Those interested may purchase a drive for themselves, or have the option to purchase one as a gift to a cancer patient at the LaFayette Cancer Center in Brewer, Maine. If you would like to purchase a drive for yourself, or one to be sent to LaFayette, please contact the group’s teacher, Shianne Priest, at 356-8512 or send a message on Facebook.
