LnHS Update 12.1.23
Dear Lancaster High School Eagle Families
We can not believe that December is already here! December will be a busy month as students scramble to finish the semester with the best grade they can get while we have many special Holiday events planned for our students and community. Winter sports are off and running as Basketball, Soccer, and Wrestling have begun hot despite the weather cooling off! We look forward to a successful Winter sport run by each of the teams!
Eagles, you only have 3 weeks left to get those grades where you need them to be. Finish strong and put your best effort forward as the semester grade is what counts on your transcript! Good luck, Eagles!
