DECA Students Qualify for State!
Congratulations to the following DECA students who qualified for the State DECA competition!
National Honor Society Eligibilty Update
The LCHS chapter of the National Honor Society will soon post its list of students eligible for membership. To be eligible, students must have completed a semester at LCHS and be in the 10th-12th grade with a core class GPA of at least 95.0 (shown as the "rank in class" GPA in Skyward). Eligible students must submit an application to be considered for membership. Selection will be determined by our 5-member faculty council and based on both completed applications and teacher feedback. Faculty council members will look for students that exemplify the NHS pillars of scholarship, service, leadership, and character. The selection process will conclude with a formal induction ceremony on March 30th. Please be aware that a GPA of 94.99 does not meet the eligibility requirement, and selection is not guaranteed. Also, prior membership in NJHS does not automatically transfer to membership in the NHS. Once inducted, members are expected to uphold high academic and behavioral standards, as well as pay dues, attend meetings, and perform community service. All eligible students may apply, even if they were not selected in previous years. For further information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com.
