Attention all students - the LHS Peer Counselors are hosting the “30 Pay it forward” challenge. Throughout the month of April, they are encouraging everyone to participate in "pay it forward" related acts, such as random acts of kindness, care and charity.  Stay tuned on facebook and instagram.   There is a special page on Facebook dedicated to this awesome challenge.  Be sure to like and follow the following facebook page "Lhspayitforwardchallenge."  Now let’s make a difference.

YOU! Yes, YOU!!!  The PTO after-prom committee still needs several volunteers to help chaperone at after-prom. We can not sponsor this event without the help of our LHS parents, so please don't wait for someone else to step up to lend a hand, as they are waiting for YOU.... This is a great opportunity for dad's to help out, since this is not an event occurring during the work week. Please consider asking your spouse to help out. Or find a friend and volunteer together. We are in need of 8-10 more parents. Thank you in advance for helping out. Thank you, also, to everyone who has already stepped up and volunteered.

Summer School information is NOW available in the Counseling office.

Don't leave home without 'em.... your bags!  The LHS greenhouse will be the recipient of funds collected  April 1- July 1 from Whole Foods Southglenn's Bag Donation Credit Program.  Reuse your own bags and LHS gets 10 cents for each. Don't forget to mention resuse of produce bags. ALL customers, not just the LHS community, can direct their donation to the greenhouse.  Reduce, reuse, recycle and..... REWARD!  Total win-win.
