AP Testing

Attention all parents of AP students. Testing begins next Monday, May 11, and runs through Friday, May 22. Your AP student(s) should have all recently received The AP Testing Guide via email. This guide contains EVERYTHING your student needs to know regarding the testing procedure. Also, on Monday, May 4, I sent all AP parents a newsletter containing information that will help you support your student(s) and ensure success on test day(s). Reminder: All AP students are required by LCS to take the AP Exam in order to get AP credit for the course. Please email Mrs. Wise, AP Test Coordinator at wiselw@lcsedu.net if you have any questions or concerns.

World Languages

In March, students competed in the global Nutty Tilez competition through This Is Language. They competed against almost 10,000 other students across the globe, typing target-language words quickly and accurately, in an attempt to be crowned Nutty champion! One incredible student from E.C. Glass High placed in the top 10 in the Nutty Tilez competition: Lily Stinson came in 7th place in Latin! The World Languages Department is so proud of Lily's achievement!
