The ASVAB test (Armed Services Vocational Aptitude Battery) will be administered on Friday, March 19 at 9 a.m. at LHS. This test is available to students in the 10th, 11th, and 12th grade.

ASVAB scores are used to determine if you are qualified to enlist in the military and to assign you to an appropriate job in the military. The ASVAB is also a great career exploration tool.

Taking the test does not obligate you, or register you for military service.

FREE Math Tutoring

FREE, student led math tutoring will be offered in room A111, from 3:30 - 4:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. Students should arrange for their own transportation after tutoring is over. Those wishing to get help, need not stay the entire hour, but must exit the building when they are no longer interested in working.

Students wishing to attend should engage with their math teachers and let them know they will be attending, and seek advice on what should be accomplished during the help session.

We don't want to turn anyone away due to space.
