LMS had its first interscholastic competition since February 2020 with our softball and baseball teams playing against Reeds Brook Middle School. Both teams fell short, but all coaches were proud of their effort and pleased to get things going this spring. Both teams compete against Nokomis on Thursday at 4pm with baseball traveling and softball home. LMS would like to thank all players, coaches and fans for following our protocols at our games. Go Coyotes!!!

SOFTBALL: Students will change up (8 at a time in the locker room), and meet a coach out by the outfield fence around 3:15-3:20. Tryouts/Practice will end at 5pm. We take the temperature and ask Covid related questions to the students who are remote the first few weeks. Due to many factors WE will make a big deal about following protocols or students will not participate. LMS requires 1 physical on file for athletes in middle school. This season we will accept Form C as adequate for physical due to high demand on medical providers, but we do recommend working to get a physical on file if possible. Paperwork that is needed for your athlete(s) is available on the LMS website under documents or by the front office at LMS. Sign-up LINK: https://forms.gle/2Hf8GTpWhLKtsRzJ7

Important dates for 8th grade families from OTHS!
Celebrate the OTHS Girls' Basketball Team! Our OTHS Girls' basketball are the Eastern Maine Champs! Friday at 7:00, they travel to Bangor High School to take on the AA Rams. When they return to Old Town around 8:30 - 8:45, we want to show them our pride and support with a community parade. You can park at the Bangor Savings Bank, Car Quest, the YMCA, and the old Sullivan's building to greet the bus as they come back into town. The bus will be escorted by the OTPD and followed by the parents of the players. You can honk and holler your window as they go by, and then hop in behind the bus to follow them to the high school. Because of pandemic rules, we cannot gather outside of cars or in the building at the high school. We'd love to see a big crowd showing Coyote Pride!
Tonight's PTC meeting is canceled and the group will meet again next month on April 14th at 6:00p.m.
Due to vaccinations and some small changes in guidelines, we will be bringing LMS students back 5 days a week! 6th grade will return on April 26, 7th grade will return on May 3, and 8th grade will return on May 10. Fully remote learning will still be a choice, for families who would prefer that option. We have many details to work out, and will let you know when we have more of them to share. We are excited!
The week of March 8th is our last week of LMS Winter Intramural Sports. Due to a scheduling conflict, Monday 3/8 and Thursday 3/11 will be the only intramural days. Thank you to all the participants for their patience and following our guidelines. Stay tuned for LMS spring athletic offerings!
We have school pictures scheduled! They will be on Tuesday, April 6 for the Monday/Tuesday cohort and Friday, April 9 for the Thursday/Friday cohort. If your child is fully remote, come in between 9 and 11 A.M. that day, and we will fit you in.
