Special Events:

This Friday, LHS will be supporting a National Day of Silence.  Our Gay-Straight Alliance is hoping you will join in the effort to make anti- LGBT bullying, harassment and name-calling unacceptable in our school.  This will be observed throughout middle and high schools nation- wide as well as at the college level.  Students all over will be taking a vow of silence in an effort to encourage awareness of this ongoing issue.  Your voluntary silence can occur in the hallways and free time or by abstaining from social media for the day.  We will be breaking the silence with a Q & A and movie in the Theater after school.  Join us for “Inside Out” and a fundraising bake sale!  Let’s show up strong as an open and affirming community!

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.  Every week there will be a new topic, so 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.
