Zebra Family Update!

February 2023

It's a Great Day to Be a Zebra!

It is so hard to believe that we are already into February, and that means we are full swing into the second semester! The Classes of 2024, 2025, and 2026 are meeting with their counselors to select courses for the 23-24 school year, and we have already made significant progress on our Class of 2027 registration!

This is also a very exciting time of the year for our seniors - college acceptance letters are coming in, and students are busy making plans for their time after high school. We also have students making commitments to universities, colleges, and community colleges to play collegiate-level athletics. Whether your student plans to go right into the job force, the military, or to continue their educational pursuits, we are excited to celebrate them! More information about our Senior Celebrations (including graduation) will begin to come out in March.

It is our joy to work with your students every day and help them establish their goals and help them explore and consider what they want their future to look like.

Safe School Plan

Every year, we produce a "Safe School Plan." Our 22/23 plan is being brought to the school board for approval in February. In the meantime, you can revisit our 21/22 plan on our website, or you can check out the presentation that Mrs. Eutsey made to the ELAC and School Site Council in January. Click here for details on how we work to support physical, emotional, and cultural safety of our Zebras.

Sober Grad - Celebrating the Class of 2023

An incredible team of parents and community members come together each year to put together a truly amazing Sober Grad Night for our seniors. The committee is happy to have help from everyone - your student does not have to be a senior for you to contribute your gifts and talents to make this a special night!

  • ongoing - Amazon Smiles and Wishlist
  • Feb 24 - Sober Grad Bingo Night
  • Feb 27, 7pm, LHS Library - General Meeting
  • April - Buyout Fundraisers (See’s Candies & Jamba Juice)

Big picture

LHS Peer Tutoring!

LHS offers an incredible tutoring program that is designed to help students get their homework done, get organized, to ask questions, to get reteaching, and even to take care of test retakes (for some teachers!). We are prepared to offer support in all content areas taught at LHS.


  • In Person at LHS Library or online using Google Meet - code: LHStutoring


  • M-F from 7:15-8:15am
  • M from 2:30-4:30pm
  • T-Th from 3:30-5:30pm

Keep in mind, that the library hosts our tutoring program to support students with learning. The library is not open for hanging out during tutoring times - all students must be actively involved in some type of academic activity during the tutoring program hours if they are in the library.

Counseling, College & Career, and Wellness

Each month, the LHS counselors will provide you with information on hot topic items as well as areas of focus with students. Stay tuned for information on all things college, school success, academic planning and mental health support.

Counseling Update!

Course selection is here!

The counseling team is busy helping students select their courses for next year. The team visited GEMS in mid January to provide our incoming 8th grades with lots of information on selecting their courses. The students turned in their selections on January 26th. We had a GREAT turn out and it was good to see such eager future Zebras!

We have moved on to focusing on our current students and we will be meeting with each grade level to review our courses, graduation requirements and A-G requirements. We will also teach students how to enter their courses into PowerSchool. After we provide this information, the students typically have about 4 days to finalize their selections. Counselors then meet individually with each student to review their selections and make any necessary adjustments. We will complete this process by late February, and parents will be notified via email when information goes out to each grade level. Be on the lookout for this email. We encourage you to take an opportunity to discuss your child’s selections and goals as they plan for next year. Please call us if you have any questions!

Summer School

We don’t have details yet, but as the counselors meet with students to plan their courses, if your child needs to repeat a course, we will let them know they are being recommended for Summer School. Additional information will go out in April/May. Typically, summer school runs from mid June until sometime in July. All classes are online, but often exams need to be taken in person at Phoenix High School. Summer School is a great opportunity for your child to make up a course without the pressure of 8 other courses. We strongly recommend that your child takes advantage of this opportunity if it is being offered to him/her.

College & Career Update!

This is specifically for seniors: You must apply for a Cal Grant by the March 2 deadline by filing your FAFSA or Dream Act application and ensuring your school submits your verified GPA.

You can check on the status of your FAFSA application and the status of awards by creating a WebGrants4Students account.

This for everyone in general:

This is the time of year when the College and career starts preparing for our annual Career Fair. It's on March 21, 2023. from 8:30am -12:30pm. Do you want to be on the planning committee? Stop by the College and Career Center for more info and to sign up.

Wellness Center Update!

February Mental Health Focus: Safe and Healthy Relationships
Our January launch of Wellness Center Social/Emotional skill based presentations focusing on Depression was incredibly successful and we hope to continue providing quality learning opportunities for our youth.

As we move into February, our theming in the Wellness Center will focus on safe and healthy relationships. Why are we focusing on this? 26% of women and 15% of men who were victims of contact sexual violence, physical violence, and/or stalking by an intimate partner in their lifetime first experienced these or other forms of violence by that partner before age 18 (Source).

One of the first tools we can do to prevent harm to our youth is talking about safe behaviors in relationships. The second, is by connecting our students to trusted staff and student community members who can guide them to resources and encourage them to seek help.The Wellness Center is proud to offer another presentation to students to help them identify relationship red flags, learn about the prevalence of abuse, and identify safe places to report and seek support from abuse.
