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.

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. http://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0a4faca623a13-littleton/sign. Thank you, also, to everyone who has already stepped up and volunteered.
