Join us in recognizing Constitution and Citizenship Day!
On September 17, 1787, the United States Constitution was signed in Philadelphia and has served as our country’s foundation of law and democracy for the past 235 years.
This commemoration started in 1940, when Congress passed a resolution authorizing and requesting the President to issue an annual proclamation setting aside the third Sunday in May for the public recognition of all who had attained the status of American citizenship. In 1952 Congress repealed this joint resolution and passed a new law moving the date to September 17 to commemorate the signing of the Constitution.
On September 17, 1787, the delegates to the Constitutional Convention met for the last time to sign the document they had created. This day became known as Constitution Day. To celebrate this important day in history all Engvall students are encouraged to wear RED, WHITE and BLUE to school Monday, September 19th.
LMS Family Night is Thursday, August 25th from 6:00pm-7:00pm. The topic being discussed is Social Media for teens. This is for parents and guardians only.

The Expanded Learning Opportunities Program (ELOP) is a new state program that is designed to provide students in TK-6th grades with additional time and support in addition to the regular school day. The district may be able to expand the program to serve students in grades 7 and 8 if funds are available. The intent of the program is to meet the needs of the community in terms of days and times of operation as well as the content of the program. This survey will be critical in assisting us in the process of developing Lemoore Union Elementary School District's ELOP.
