LPHS Parent Newsletter

January 2021

Dear Families,

I hope all of our students and families enjoyed a restful holiday break. Happy New Year as we welcome in 2021 with open arms.


We are closing in on the end of our first semester on Friday, January 15th. The January newsletter features our final exam schedule in relation to blue, yellow, orange, or red programming. We will be off on Monday, January 18th for Dr. Martin Luther King Jr's birthday and second semester begins on Tuesday, January 19th. On behalf of the LPHS faculty we want to congratulate Jillian Maudlin as one of two La Porte County Lilly Endowment Community Scholars. This newsletter also contains the LPCSC programming announcements for the week of January 4th and the second semester. We also highlight the positive charitable work of our students and staff during the holiday season.


Thank you in advance for all that you do keep our campus and community safe.

Once A Slicer, Always A Slicer!


Sincerely,

Mr. Alber, Principal

Holiday Spirit!

The mark of a true leader is helping out even when times are difficult, and that’s what our Slicers have been doing. Audrey R. and Mrs. Wireman rang the bell for the Salvation Army, and NHS adopted a family for the holidays.
