The new school in Lakeland is wasting no time in making contributions to the Memphis-area community,
LMPS (Lakeland Middle Preparatory School), which opened in August, is offering students a “Give Back” project this holiday season to help the Tennessee Baptist Children’s Home in Bartlett and the Moriah House/Memphis Union Mission.
Matt Adler, LMPS principal, said the school is a positive behavior school where students exhibit altruistic attitudes on a daily basis. “Staff would like to spread our positivity into our surrounding area. We will be making Holiday Socks for two different organizations in our community,” said Mr. Adler.
Homerooms throughout the school will pair to bring in supplies including crafts to make the holiday socks and sock stuffers. He said students may opt out of this project, but it is encouraged.
The socks will include small treats like candy, snack cakes and chips and will be delivered Dec. 15.
LMPS serves grades 5-8 and is the second school in the Lakeland School System.
There are two musical performances at the school next week sponsored by the LMPS Fine Arts Department with a suggested donation of $5 for each event and open to the community. Both are in the LMPS Cafetorium.
Choir Concert – 6:30 p.m. Dec. 11 featuring Mane Melody Singers and the sixth, seventh and eighth grade choirs.
Band and Orchestra Winter Concert – 6:30 p.m. Dec. 12 including a live auction and bake sale.
The first-ever school play will be Peter Pan April 7-8 with auditions in January.
