This Date in History: On May 7, 1824, Ludwig van Beethoven’s ninth and final symphony debuts at Vienna’s Theater am Kärntnertor. The Ninth Symphony required the largest orchestra ever employed by Beethoven, and was unusual at the time for its use of voices in addition to instruments. Beethoven hand-picked two young singers, 18-year-old Henriette Sontag and 20-year-old Caroline Unger, for the soprano and alto parts. He stood on stage and appeared to conduct the orchestra when the Ninth debuted, although due to his deafness the players were instructed to ignore the composer and instead follow Michael Umlauf, the actual conductor.

Do you know where your library books are? The LMC is gearing up for the Summer Library Check Out, and we're hoping you can check at home for some missing library books. To help give you some ideas, check out the top 10 places to find your child’s lost library books: 1. Between the bed and the wall (even I fall asleep reading) 2. Between the bed and the other wall (so I guess that's the floor, but you get it) 3. Shoved in the back of the bookcase (usually flat against the back, especially for small books) 4. Underneath the couch (keeping them handy!) 5. The bathroom (obvious reasons) 6. In the car (the book wanted to go on a trip!) 7. Inside the dresser (slid in with the pile of socks?) 8. Under the bed (it was originally in the #2 spot, but then got kicked) 9. Between the sheets (usually found at the foot of the bed) 10. On the very bottom of the toybox!! Help us gather as many outstanding library books as possible before the Summer Library Check Out begins at the end of May. Stay tuned for details! view image

Last night over 50 students gathered in memory of Mason. We shared readings, poems and expressed how much he will be missed. We whispered peace, when we didn't know the words to speak. We cried many tears but also smiled and laughed. We found another level of connection with each other and with Mason. We are grateful for the memories and will hold onto them forever. 💙🕊 view image
