Have a Great Summer!

July 13, 2017

Hello, LHS family! We wanted to send out a quick "hello" to share with you some summer updates. We hope you all had a nice 4th of July weekend and whether you spend your summer months taking trips to the beach, hanging out poolside, throwing backyard barbecues, or just enjoying your air conditioning, we hope that your summers are filled with family, friends, fun, sunshine, thrills, and amazing memory-making. We look forward to seeing you in September and hearing about all of your adventures!

SHH Club Returns to Honduras

On July 1st, LHS Spanish teacher Alyssa Katz and 15 student members of the LHS Students Helping Honduras (SHH) club arrived in the village of Esfuerzo de Jesus to paint and inaugurate the Jorge Fidel Duron Middle School.


The LHS chapter of SHH raised $25,000 in 2016 to completely fund the school, and 9 LHS students broke ground in July 2016. The school is being painted red and white in honor of Lawrence, and will display a plaque thanking LHS and all of those who were a part of the fundraising efforts.
