Special Events:

Students- On Friday, November 11 we celebrate Veterans Day.   Veterans Day pays tribute to all American veterans who served their country honorably during war or peacetime.
You will notice we have asked in-house veterans to lead us in the pledge throughout the week.  We encourage you to thank them for their service.  You will hear more about LHS Veterans Day activities throughout the week.
Today Officer Tim Fisher, our School Resource Officer, will lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance.  Officer Fisher was in the Marines from 1981 through 1985.  He spent 18 months in Barracks duty in the Philippines and also completed two tours overseas in what is called a West Pac tour, including South Korea, Okinawa, China, and the Philippines.  Officer Fisher received the overseas service commendation and the Navy achievement commendation.
