Congratulations to the Lorena Middle School Teacher of the Month for October - Mrs. Sherri Hennig!

Mrs. Hennig has been nominated and selected as Lorena Middle School's October Teacher of the Month.  Mrs. Hennig teaches 6th, 7th and 8th grade Math and supports students and teachers in the classroom at Lorena Middle School.   This is her 30th year in education and her 28th year in Lorena at the middle school campus.   

Below is a portion of the nomination letter Mrs. Hennig received:

Mrs. Hennig is the hardest worker I know.  She is dedicated to the students and staff at LMS.  She is always willing to help, students and teachers as well.  Fially, she does a great job communicating with the teachers when we need reminders for our students and communicates well with parents too. Mrs. Hennig is so deserving of being recognized as Teacher of the Month.

If you would like to nominate an educator for Teacher of the Month, please contact the LMS office at 254-857-4621.

The week of September 21st is Homecoming Week.  At Lorena Middle School, we will have different themes each day.  On Wednesday there is a Homecoming Parade through downtown Lorena beginning at 6:30 p.m.  The 7th and 8th grade junior high football plays on Thursday evening beginning at 4:30 p.m.  On Friday morning, LMS will travel to Leopard Stadium for the district-wide pep rally that begins at 9:15 a.m.  (weather permitting)

Lorena Homecoming MS Themes

Tuesday – Super Hero/Villian Day

Each home football game, Lorena Middle School hosts a pep rally to cheer on our teams.  LMS pep rallies will be held in the MS gymnasium.  We do ask that parents who wish to attend enter through the front of the building as our buses are parked and ready to load in the back.  On pep rally days, we will be on a slightly different schedule, shortening each class a bit.  First lunch begins at 11:15.  Second lunch begins at 11:50.

Lorena Middle School home games for the 15-16 school year are:

September 10th - LaVega
September 24th - Troy
October 1st - Gatesville
October 15th - Rusk (A-Teams only)
November 5th - Fairfield

The LMS fall fund raiser is under way now through September 14th.  A+ discount cards are on sale.  Cards are $20 and cards + coupon books or Combos are $25.  Money raised from sales will go into the LMS Activity account.  Funds are used to support and add to the Chromebook Labs in each grade.  Additional technology equipment may also be purchased for student use.  Money may also be used to help fund student field trips and incentive trips.  Thank you in advance for your support.

"Greatness is not in where we stand, but in what direction we are moving." Oliver Wendell Holmes

At Lorena Middle School, our mission is to support district level initiatives by creating an exemplary learning environment committed to student achievement and leadership development as we engage students, parents, and the community to maximize life-long learning.

In the Lorena I.S.D. a "Tradition of Excellence" has always been about the journey from good to great. This year, our theme is "Expect Greatness." Lorena Middle School will support that district initiative by continuing to share our passion for learning with the students we serve in grades five through eight. With community and parent support, our goal is to ensure that each student has a challenging and safe learning environment in which to excel.

Lorena Middle School achieves greatness through high expectations, respect for ourselves and others, integrity, and excellence in all that we say and do.
