In Ms. Navarro’s Spanish class, we are making an “Ojo de Dios”, or eye of God. We have to use two sticks that are a yard long and at least as thick as a pinkie finger. We also need two rolls of different colored yarn. The yarn gets so strong that it bends the sticks and they can sometimes break. “It’s sad to see your eye break after you’ve worked on it so hard,” stated Ms. Navarro .Local stores stick extra supplies for this because so many students rush to go them!
The LMS building. We are building storage sheds so we can learn the basics of making buildings. We learned about the foundations of houses and how to properly square up the foundation of a building. To make the foundation, we had to learn how to use a nail gun and a caulk gun. This week, we finished the foundation of the building. Mr. Pope will be selling the shed to local buyers when the project is finished. Mr. Pope says he picked the project because he wanted “to demonstrate to the students the knowledge and skills necessary to build a house.”
From May 8th-11th, a group of students from Levelland Middle School had the opportunity to actually visit the places they heard about in history class. The group started planning the trip as far back as last year and each grade level at LMS was represented.

On Wednesday March 12th, the Middle School hosted “Parent Appreciation” festivities as part of Texas Public Schools Week. Parents toured the school and took part in several activities including performances by the 8th grade basketball team, Theater Arts Class, Symphonic Band Percussion ensemble, PLAD club, and The 6th Grade Choir.
Also, there was an Art Gallery diplaying student work and refreshments for all attendants.
The students at LMS have very kind hearts and like to show it. The members of the National Junior Honor Society serve anyone around Levelland that needs help for no money. Babysitting, mowing lawns, and running consession stands are only a few of the projects they can do for points. Every student is required to get 10 points each six weeks. On Tuesdays, the NJHS meets and talks about deeds they can do to help others. By the end of the year, all the students involved should feel good about what they accomplished.
On Sunday February 28th, Mrs. Payne’s Treble Choir sang the National Anthem at the Lady Raiders basketball game. The Treble Choir auditioned earlier in September for a chance to sing. This was a very exciting time for the young students. Great job LMS Treble Choir!!!
