WELCOME, CLASS OF 2020
Have a great summer!
Welcome, incoming Class of 2020!
We look forward to having incoming freshmen and their families join our LHS community this coming August. Here are pictures from Step-Up Days, where current LHS students that had attended sending schools gave students advice about what to expect in the next school year.
SSF Rebuilds Garden Beds
SSF (Students for a Sustainable Future) members spent a few hours in the sunshine rebuilding the two damaged and deteriorated raised garden beds. The work involved cutting lumber, building the raised bed frames in the art room, removing the old beds, shoveling lots of dirt, installing the new beds, planting squash, carrots, kale and chard, and cleaning up the work site. The vegetables will be harvested in the fall for the school kitchen staff to turn into wonderful lunches! See the SSF website for more photos!

LHS Concert Band shines at Great East Festival
The LHS Concert Band earned a Platinum Medal, the highest medal awarded, by the Great East Festival. The judges were very impressed, and offered students some feedback to improve even further. Their instructor, Ms. Haley, said, "I'm very proud of the hard work they put in to get to this level, and they were very excited to receive this honor." The
plaque will be on display in the trophy cabinet in the LHS lobby. Be sure to take a look! Meanwhile, here are a couple more photos of the fun students had while on their trip.
