Today is an EVEN Day – Periods

Veteran's Day Events:

Officer Tim Fisher, our School Resource Officer, will lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance today. Officer Fisher was in the Marines from 1981 through 1985.  He spent 18 months in Barracks duty in the Philippines and also completed two tours overseas in what is called a West Pac tour, including South Korea, Okinawa, China, and the Philippines.  Officer Fisher received the overseas service commendation and the Navy achievement commendation.

Following the Pledge I ask teachers to open their classroom doors to hear the “Star Spangled Banner” played by members of the LHS marching band.

Special Events:

Please come on out to the Ames Facility this evening for the 4th annual LPS poetry slam.  You will get to see poets from all four high schools bring their work, as well as some professional poets.  The slam starts at 7 tonight, but we are expecting a packed house so arrive early.  This is a free event. See Mrs. Fisher or Mr. Saliman for more details.
