September Newsletter

Loveland High School Families:

We are quickly moving into September and I can truly say that your students have been great! (And there are still a few things that we can tighten up on . . . )


Please continue to help us with the following areas:

  • Appropriate dress at school

  • Vaping/Substance use (I’m crossing my fingers - this has been good so far!)

  • Getting to classes every day and on time

  • Eating lunch

  • Being the nice kid (They are good at this too!)

  • Getting involved


Every one of your students contributes equally to who we are as a school community. Our staff works hard to create an inclusive environment where all students feel safe. I am proud of our students that they treat each other with kindness and understanding - and we can always be better.

PSAT/NMSQT - Wednesday, October 12

LHS Juniors:


Registration is now open, and this is your chance to guarantee a spot to take the PSAT/NMSQT (National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test) on Wednesday, October 12th. Registration will close on Tuesday, September 13th, at 11:59 p.m. Juniors will only be able to register after that day if extra tests remain available.


The Loveland High School counseling department recommends that all college-bound juniors take this exam. Please note that this exam is not a duplicate of the PSAT 10 exam all sophomores took last year, and only scores earned during junior year qualify for National Merit Scholarships. The PSAT/NMSQT is also one of the last opportunities to take a practice exam before juniors take the SAT college admissions exam this spring.


Registration is on a first come, first serve basis. To register for the exam, please CLICK HERE. The cost of the exam is $20, and the exam will take place at LHS in the large gymnasium.


If you have any questions, please contact Eric Fanning at eric.fanning@tsd.org or 970-613-5209.

ATTENTION JUNIORS AND PARENTS – MARK YOUR CALENDARS!!

On Wednesday, October 19th from 7:00-8:00 p.m. the LHS Counseling Department will host an event for juniors and parents in the LHS Auditorium. You will have the opportunity to get some basic information about selecting the right college, finding scholarships, applying for financial aid, as well as receive information about NCAA, and other important information. We look forward to supporting you as you begin your journey into the college and career search process!

Loveland High to host regional college fair:

This year the Colorado Council for High School/College Relations College fair will be hosted at Loveland High School on Tuesday, October 4th from 6:00 - 7:00 p.m. Representatives from colleges all around Colorado and some of our neighboring states will be on hand to explain their programs and answer any questions families might have. We highly encourage students from all grade levels to attend this exciting opportunity to explore future options. A full list of attending schools will be shared once we get closer to the date.

IB Diploma Programme Exam Registration

Registration for the May 2023 exam session will begin Sept. 26th. Any 11th and/or 12th grader enrolled in an IB class is eligible to sit the exam for that course. The IB DP Coordinator will provide specific details on how to register through an email to parents and through the IB DP classes. Students benefit from the experience of taking high stakes exams in addition to the benefit of potential college credit. Last year 71% of the IB test takers earned a passing grade and many scored above the world average.


The fee for each exam is $119 dollars for both course and full diploma students. If you are eligible for free or reduced lunches, you will pay a reduced rate of $20 per exam. Fees should not be a barrier; therefore, the school will work with families to ensure access to the program.


Earn funding for the LHS IB programme by shopping at King Soopers!

Families can support the International Baccalaureate Programme with each use of the King Soopers loyalty card. Setup takes three simple steps:


  1. Sign in to your digital account at www.kingsoopers.com

  2. Type in the LHS IB code under “Community Rewards”: JS334

  3. Click “Save”.

All of the donations that LHS IB receives will be split as follows:

  • 50% will apply to decreasing student test fees
  • 50% will apply to exam fee scholarships and IB events


For more information, please contact Michelle Ray, LHS IB DP Coordinator (michelle.ray@tsd.org).
