Dear Ladera Ranch Middle School Lions,
I am proud to announce that in Sunday’s OC Register Rankings of Middle Schools, LRMS was awarded gold and ranked as number two in the county. Other CUSD schools Newhart and Vista Del Mar were awarded bronze. LRMS was ranked on the strengths of academic performance, campus environment, safety and discipline, physical fitness, and diversity. Congratulations!
We were very happy to host football athletes from Marco Forster Middle School at our campus today. Both the Roadrunners and our Lions played with skill and sportsmanship in cross town championship games for grades 6, 7, and 8. Thank you to Mr. Hatchel and our ASB students for putting on such a great event. For those of you willing to read the entire newsletter, you may see below to find out who won.

Please follow our LRMS established etiquette and processes for dropping off and picking up students in the mornings and afternoons. Pull up all the way to the north end of the campus=, otherwise traffic is impeded and students are exiting cars in dangerous places. Do not text while driving. All of our students’ safety is at risk and it is therefore important that we all follow our procedures even on our busiest days.
