Don't be left out of the "Hour of Code" on Wednesday right after school in the cafeteria any time between 2:30-4:30pm.   We'll have FREE CHIPOTLE, music, laptops and everything you'll need to give this a try. No experience necessary!  Spaces are limited!  Sign up now online on the LHS homepage scroller.

Get into the Spirit with Winter Dance dress up days this week!!  Tomorrow is Twin day, find your friend and make a TWIN!  Wednesday is Lifeguard Day so White and Red are the colors to dress up in, and Thursday is Pool Accessory Day.  Of course, Friday is Class T-shirt Day and the Winter Assembly!  Let’s have some fun dressing up!

Guest forms for the Winter Dance are due Thursday.

The Winter Pep Assembly is Friday--do you still need to pick up your class t-shirt?  If so, head down to the cafeteria AFTER SCHOOL on Tuesday, or Thursday next week and pick up your shirt.  Again, class t-shirt pick-up is in the CAFETERIA, AFTER SCHOOL on Tuesday or Thursday.

LHS is doing Make-A-Wish events again this year!  Last year we raised over $10,000 for Quinn, our lovely girl from Chatfield high school with terminal cancer.  This year we are kicking off Make-A-Wish events at the Winter Pep Assembly with some fun games and a chance for you to get a teacher, administrator and some students wet!! So, bring your dollars to the Pep Assembly on Friday and you may get the chance to participate and help LHS fundraise for a special boy or girl! AND, stay tuned for more events in February and March!
