Way to go Lorena One Act Play!!!
Lorena One Act Play Took 1st Place at Connally for UIL District 17-AAAA Competition
On Saturday, February 11th, the Lorena Middle School One Act Play competed in the District 17-AAAA competition at Connally High School.  Lorena beat out China Spring, Robinson and Connally to take 1st Place.  The wining performance this year was a play titled The Ghost of Enoch Charlton.  The students along with their director Mrs. Peevey worked hard and perfected their performance as they presented it to the entire school body and the community before presenting for competition.

February Teacher of the Month

Congratulations 
to the Lorena Middle School Teacher of the Month for February - Mrs. Kelley Campbell.


This is Mrs. Campbell's seventh year to work  at Lorena Middle School.  Mrs. Campbell teaches 7th and 8th grade Math.  

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

Mrs. Campbell is awesome.  She shows us not just tells us how to solve math problems.  We get to go in the hallways to work math and we get to break into groups.  It's always something different to make sure we get it.  Mrs. Campbell can be strict at time, like with learning lunch, but I know she tries really hard and wants us to be better students, especially as we get ready to go to high school. This is why Mrs. Campbell deserves teacher of the month.

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

We would like to nominate Mrs. Pike for teacher of the month.  I know she isn't like a regular teacher, but she really helps us a lot.  Mrs. Pike is always happy to see us.  Even when you are having a bad day, Mrs. Pike tries to cheer you up.  She has all kinds of seats and tables for us which actually help us pay attention more.  Mrs. Pike makes sure we understand different homework and helps us with tests too.  Even though she doesn't have regular classes, we think she is amazing and deserves to be teacher of the month.

This is Mrs. Dunford's third year to provide instructional assistance at Lorena Middle School.  Mrs. Dunford works with all students in all grade levels. She also provides support for teachers in the core subject areas. 

Below is a portion of the nomination letters Mrs. Dunford received:

I would like to nominate Mrs. Deborah Dunford for teacher of the month.  Mrs. Dunford goes above and beyond everyday for her students.  She makes extra learning activities, flashcards and gives incentives for learning many different class's material.  Mrs. Dunford even volunteers after school to help her students with their History Fair projects.  Mrs. Dunford is pulled in many directions during the day and she goes about each day with a smile on her face.

Lorena Middle School is blessed to have a jewel like Mrs. Dunford. She is full of gusto and love for students and staff. There is not a day that we don't see her making many steps through the hallways in search of a group of students to encourage and support or running to the rescue of a teacher in distress.  WOW! From the bottoms of our hearts, thank you Mrs. Dunford - you are a constant support to everyone at Lorena Middle School.
