Welcome to the HCMS LMC! Our mission is to provide current, popular fiction and
non-fiction books to support and enhance our district's curriculum and encourage
life-long reading for both knowledge and pleasure.

Our students are excited to be a part of the Rebecca Caudill Young Readers' Book Award program. Thanks to the Education Foundation we are able to offer students multiple copies of each nominated title.
Read 3 or more nominated titles by February 15, 2017 and vote for your favorite at our celebration!

ERIN'S LAW
Governor Pat Quinn signed Erin's Law in January of 2013, which requires all schools in the state of Illinois to provide age appropriate sexual abuse and assault awareness and prevention education programs for their students in grades Pre-K through 12. In response to this legislation, Frankfort School District 157-C will be adding, "Child Lures Prevention: Think First and Stay Safe", curriculum for the school year. Our classroom presentations will span between the week of October 19th and December 14th, 2015. The grade level social workers will join your student's PE/Health teacher to facilitate discussion and provide information regarding the pertinent topics. All presentations and discussion will be age-appropriate using sensitivity and language to educate your child for increased safety.
