The Coupons for Education sales campaign for 2017-2018 begins on Monday, Aug. 28th.
The books are a little smaller in size (a little easier to carry and store) than last year’s book and are only $20.00. There are over 300 coupons from 92 vendors saving you $1,000.00’s, while raising money for YOUR school.
Using just one or two coupons will earn your $20.00 investment back. With the Coupons for Education book, YOU win, YOUR school wins, and YOUR child wins!
Please be sure that your child does not go door to door to sell, but rather to friends and relatives, and of course YOU (be sure to pass this savings opportunity on to your co-workers).
Students will earn incentives (treats, passes, gift cards) from LWMS for every book they sell, and students who sell 10 or more books will be entered into countywide weekly drawings for a chance to win gift cards of $50.00, $100.00, or $200.00.
New this year, the top selling student for this sales campaign will be featured on the cover of next year’s Coupons for Education book.
A parent letter/sales sheet (click link to view/download) was sent home with your child so that they can keep track of their sales. Students will come to school with their money and will be given their incentives and Coupon book(s) at that time. The books will also be available for sale at the front office area for walk-ins.

The administration and staff of Lake Weir Middle School are proud to announce the LWMS Advanced Academic Academy, beginning in the 2017-2018 school year. This magnet program will focus on providing a student-centered learning environment where students will be prepared for the demands of rigorous high school magnet programs. The 6th and 7th grade classes will focus on preparing students to take high school course offerings during their eighth grade year. Instruction will focus on advanced language arts writing and reading skills, as well as providing a strong foundation in mathematics. Students in eighth grade will begin their high school career by taking English I Honors, Algebra I Honors, and Physical Science Honors for high school credit.
Our Advanced Academic Academy students will have the opportunity to take elective classes in a variety of areas including Agriculture, Art, Band, Carpentry and Architecture, Culinary Arts, Health Occupations, and Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM). Students will also have the opportunity to participate in clubs such as FFA, Good News Club, HOSA, National Junior Honor Society, and Student Government. Extracurricular activities include volleyball, basketball, cross country, track, school dances, and competitive events such as Brain Bowl and MATHCOUNTS.
