This Week at LC – Summer 2018
From the Library: 7th and 8th grade parents: please use the following link to help you list and purchase books from the textbook exchange over the summer:https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC5D4ZCfhlgwa1yWe5b2zS9g?view_as=subscribe
From Textbooks & Technology: For all incoming freshman the following are the iPad requirements and recommendations. The iPad can be either a standard iPad or a mini; it should have an iOS 10 or better and have at least 32 mg of memory (I would recommend 128 mg). A keyboard is a nice accessory, but is not required. A sturdy case is not only recommended, it is required. It is highly recommended that you purchase an Apple Care plan when you make you initial purchase. If you are purchasing a refurbished or used model they can still be insured by Worth Ave Group (https://www.worthavegroup.com/product/).
If you are the parent of an 8th grade student that will be taking 9th grade classes, therefore using high school textbooks you have the option of purchasing the print text from the class, renting a text from us (if available), or purchasing an iPad for use in those classes.
If you have any questions regarding this information please feel free to contact me (email is best) in the Lumen Christi library. — Mrs. Eileen Lienhart

From The Main Office:
Tuesday, June 12 – 5 – 7 pm
The Used Uniform Sale and Educational Outfitter Fit and Order Day will be held on Tuesday, June 12 from 5- 7 p.m. Doors will not open until 5 p.m. At the Used Uniform Sale, we will only accept cash and checks. Credit/Debit cards will not be accepted. The Purchaser of used uniform items will pay a $2 handling fee for each item purchased, remitted to Lumen Christi to offset the cost of hosting the sale.
Note: Students/Parents who submitted items for the Used Uniform Sale will be notified by e-mail of any unsold items from the sale. These items will be held available for pick up until Packet Pick-up on August 8, at which point they will be donated to the school.
From Mrs. Fleming: Are you interested in completing a college course while a junior or senior in high school? Dual enrollment reimbursement from the State of Michigan can cover the tuition cost. Dual enrollment is offered by Spring Arbor University and Jackson College. Courses are offered on the college campuses and online. Courses are offered based on availability and some courses fill up quickly. The application deadline for SAU sign up is August 15th. Additional information and application forms are available from Mr. Havlicek, College Advisor and Ms. Fleming, Registrar.
From the Library: Summer hours for checking out books/materials and for taking book tests will be every Wednesday from 7:30 a.m. – 3 p.m. and on Wednesday, July 11th and August 1st the library will be open from 7:30 a.m. – 8 p.m. Just a reminder to all 9th-12th graders you must take and pass five (5) book tests each year. If you have any questions please contact Mrs. L. in the library.
From Athletics: All students who plan to play sports during the 2018/19 school year at Lumen Christi must have a physical exam which was administered after April 15th, 2018. No exceptions. You may be out of sync with your health insurance company which may only allow a physical exam once a year. For example, if your child had a physical exam on March 1, 2018, the MHSAA, which is the governing body of athletics, requires all student-athletes to have a physical exam to be given April 15th, 2018 or after. So the March 1st physical would not meet the MHSAA requirements. Your child would need another physical before playing in the 2018/19 school year. The following may help.
Please read the following.
Next Monday – June 11th in the afternoon 1 to 5 PM, Five Dollar physical exams will be available for those that may be in the situation mentioned in the beginning of this letter. The $ 5.00 physicals will be available in the gym at Lumen Christi on Monday.
If you want to take advantage of this situation you should come to the high school office prior to the physical day and pick up a physical card which should be filled out prior to the exam. There are parts of the physical card which need to be filled out by the parent and student and signed. If you have all of that information filled out, it will save time during the exam. There is only one physical card provided to the schools by the MHSAA.
- From the Advancement Office: Congratulations to the 8th grade class on their advancement.
