Homecoming Announcements:

TODAY - get ready to cheer on some VOLLEYBALL! The Homecoming Guys Volleyball tourney will start at 2:30 in the South Gym--come cheer on the guys in your class!! Stay to cheer on our Girls Volleyball teams competing against Pomona.  Games start at 4:30!  Student Council will have a game during the match where you could win some homecoming tickets!!  See you there!

Don’t forget the class competition Dodge Ball Tourney is Wednesday after school in the south gym!!  Let's see who is the Top Class at LHS in Dodge Ball!!

Also on Wednesday is the Annual BONFIRE!  This is when we hear from our football team how they are going to CLIP the Adams City Eagles' wings!!  We have lots of games, a bouncy castle, free desserts and much, much more!  It starts at 7 and ends at 8...please make sure your ride is there at 8pm sharp--thanks!!

Don’t forget to bring your $2 for the Lip Sync Challenge again on Thursday during both lunches in the cafeteria!  It goes to a great cause, Urban Peak.

It's Homecoming and that means a PARADE!!  This year Student Council is trying something different, each CLASS is making a float and has an entry.  Instead of each Club having a separate entry, all the students in each class who are in a club will walk with their CLASS'S float entry!!  That way all the seniors who are in DECA, FBLA or any other club will ALL WALK TOGETHER representing their Class of 2017!  The Parade is on Friday 23rd, starts at 3pm at Bemis Library.  We'd love to see you there!!!  We did not get a bus to take people over to the Library, so find someone to carpool with or walk over....the more people in the Parade the more fun it is!!

Homecoming tickets are on sale in the cafeteria during lunches, they are $15.  Buy early so you don't have to stand in line on Sat.

Got your class shirt yet?  The shirts are on sale during lunches and after school every day this week EXCEPT Friday!!  So, get your shirt NOW and don't wait until the last minute!
