Our Performing Arts department is outstanding offering full courses in band, choir, and orchestra. Students at LFMS participate in Students Run Los Angeles (SRLA) and the Orange County Spelling Bee.

Students may learn the value of community service by participating in the PRIDE All-Stars program, Bears Take Pride Award program. By volunteering at school and in the community, maintaining good grades, and receiving outstanding citizenship grades, students receive recognition for their hard work and efforts by earning a Bears Take Pride Award.

LFMS prides itself on its high level of parental involvement. Our supportive PTSA works collaboratively with LFMS to provide funds and parental assistance to support our various programs such as Red Ribbon Week, Reflections, technology support and numerous Parent Education Nights.
