Looking forward to seeing everyone at PTO TODAY,  March 12, at 10 a.m. in the LHS Admin Conference Room.  Dr. Oaks will be updating us on the happenings around LHS and we will be getting a report on how PTO After-Prom is coming along.  One last reminder to all LHS Family Businesses to please turn in your donations to the LHS Admin Office on Wednesday as well so we can get the basket ready for the LPS Foundation Spirit Celebration Event.  Hope to see you at PTO!

LHS is continuing the gift card donation tradition for Spring Break by serving approximately 50 families with gift cards in the denomination of between $10 and $50 to places such as King Soopers, Safeway, Albertsons, Wal-Mart, and Target. We would like to serve as many families as we have requests for, but we could be limited based on the donations received.  Individuals who would like to make a donation can drop-off gift cards (i.e., King Soopers/Safeway/Albertsons/Target, Wal-Mart, etc...) at anytime. However, the sooner the better as it will help allow the Counseling Department to know how many families we can best serve.
