Howe's Happenings Week 32 2015-2016

German and Reading Acceleration

What did we do last week?

German 1 students began learning about clothing and shopping. We virtually visited three online German department stores, discussed similarities and differences between shopping in the US and Germany, and discussed traditional dress in Germany and the United States. This week, students will learn how to describe what they are wearing and how to communicate in a store.

German 2 students finished up their health projects (due Monday, May 2) and will take their health tests on Monday. This week, we will start a unit on travel. We'll learn about traveling by train in Germany, how to make a reservation, and how to talk about trips we have taken.

Reading Acceleration students continued working with our Science text on genetics. This week, we will map the text and take our assessment on genetics. We will continue independent reading and also write our first SAT prompt.

Lake Orion High School Announces Early/Middle College Program with Baker College

Lake Orion High School is very excited to announce a new partnership with Baker College which will afford LOHS Students the opportunity to get a jump on college and earn an Associate's Degree, free of charge, only one year out of high school.

The school district's Early/Middle College Program has been made possible through a partnership with Baker College and support from the State of Michigan. (Please see the attached document for more information about the program.)

Lake Orion is currently one of only a handful of districts in Oakland County that offer such an opportunity to high school students. Students in 10th grade will have the chance to learn more about this program at an assembly held on Monday, May 2nd. Students in this program will begin their course of study in their Junior year, taking college-level classes that will apply toward both their high school diploma and an associate's degree.

Parents and Guardians are invited to an informational parent meeting on Wednesday, May 4th at 7:00pm in the high school auditorium.
