Congratulations to the LHS Symphony Orchestra!  The Orchestra Overall Superior Ratings from all four judges at the CHSAA Large Group Orchestra Festival yesterday.  The LHS Orchestra was one of only two groups at the Festival day to receive this distinction.

Thanks to all who will participate in our Day of Silence TODAY.  Across the nation, students demonstrated silent support to end harassment and bullying of others. Well done, LHS allies!

COLD! HARD! CASH!  Do you have your after-prom ticket yet? LHS PTO After-Prom will be raffling off three great cash prizes! With your ticket purchase and attendance at Brunswick Zone, your name will go into the hat for a chance to win a $150 cash prize, a $100 cash prize, and a  $50 cash prize! Not to mention bowling, arcade, laser tag, billiards and a live performance by Littleton's own 20 Taras Band!!! Purchase tickets on line, or during the lunch period on the following days: April 22, 26, 27 and 29. Tickets are only $15. DON'T MISS OUT!

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.

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.
