Off to a Great Start!

It has been wonderful to see our students back in the classroom, learning and growing. We have had an amazing start to the 23-24 school year.

I have been particularly impressed by the positive attitude and enthusiasm of our students. They have been eager to learn and participate in all of our activities. I am also grateful for the support of our parents and guardians. It was wonderful seeing familiar faces and meeting new families at our Open House!Your involvement in your child's education is essential to their success.

I am proud of the work that our students and staff have done so far this year. I am confident that we will have a successful and productive school year.

Thank you for your continued support! As always, please don't hesitate to reach out with any questions or concern.

Green and White Forever,

Paula J. Reber

Lewisburg Area High School Principal
