Other Announcements:

Attention Senior girls, if you ordered a SWAG shirt they are here and ready to be picked up.  See Ms. Prestel in room 209 if you want your shirt, they are $15.

Make A Wish Announcements:

Everyone who ordered a Make A Wish t-shirt, they are in!  You can pick them up in the main lobby on TODAY after school or during lunches at the Concession Stand by the gyms on Thursday.  And finally, you can pick yours up on Friday before school and before the Pep Rally! Bring your money if you haven't paid yet!  We also ordered a few extras, so if you forgot to order one--no problem!

Make A Wish Week: 
TODAY – people are dressed as Earth Elements for Earth Day and we have BINGO after school--you could win some fun prizes; only $2 per card; in Cafeteria at 2:30.
Tomorrow – dress in Purple and get ready for BATTLE OF THE BANDs from 5-7, $4 to get in-which includes a snack.  Make sure you bring your school ID (like at a dance).
Friday - Wear your Make A Wish shirts OR your Class T-shirts and come to the Spring pep assembly.  Also we will have a HUGE BUCKET CHALLENGE AT PEP RALLY!  Student Council is asking you empty your piggy banks of your dollar, 5's, 10's or empty your jar of coins and bring all of it to the Pep Rally on Friday to give to the Make A Wish campaign!  We will be doing a HUGE Bucket Challenge at the Pep Rally while Quinn is here, so she can see how her wish WILL come true with the help of all of LHS!!

Senior Announcements:

On LATE START Wednesday, April 29, 2015 the Class of 2015 will have a mandatory meeting at 8:00 am regarding graduation and other end of the year activities.  All seniors must attend this meeting in the Theater.

Reminder for Seniors - Get on the map!  Have you decided where you're going to college?  If so, stop by the Post Grad Center and let us know.  We'll put your picture with your name and college on the maps outside the cafeteria and in Post Grad!  

Prom Announcements:

Lady Lions:  Do you still need a prom dress?  Do you have a prom dress from last year you don't need anymore?  If you answered yes to either of these questions then please come check out the Prom dress swap hosted by Key Club.  This event is taking place in the cafeteria during A and B lunches. Dresses will also be available to purchase for a very small nominal fee.

Next year, LHS After-Prom will he held at…. YOUR HOUSE!  OK, just kidding, but we aren’t kidding when we say we need your help to continue this special tradition. Your LHS PTO After-Prom committee has done all of the planning and fund-raising, but they CAN NOT host this event without the help of junior and senior parents! Without chaperones, after-prom will  not continue. If you worry about remaining anonymous while you volunteer at after-prom, you are like every high school parent who thinks their student will cringe at the sight of their parents… Not to worry!!!! There are plenty of spots where you are needed, and no student  will be the wiser that you are on the premises. So step up, and help out! It’s  2-3 hours of your time, and  you  are keeping this super fun event at Brunswick Zone as a part of the Prom Night experience. If everyone waits for someone else to step up, then next year’s after-prom might be at your house…. or not at all, which would be a big disappointment for all LHS students.  Thank you in advance for lending a hand!!!!  (This link can also be accessed through the Littleton High School Website)

Prom guest forms will be available in student services and the main office. They will be due on April 23, 2015.

Blog Announcements:

Tickets for this year’s After-Prom are now on sale for $15. Parents and students can purchase tickets online from the LHS home page or at school Thursday and Friday, April 23rd and 24th during lunch periods.

Prom tickets will now be sold in the Bookkeepers office ONLY.  You can buy yours at lunch, before school or after school.  You can also nominate a boy and girl for prom royalty TODAY when you buy your ticket--or there will also be a table in the senior hall for nominations both days as well!

For students needing help in Math & Science Lockheed Martin tutoring will be here Wednesday, and Thursday from 6:00-7:30pm in room 107.  Please use the forum entrance.
