Homecoming: Good Times and Memories That Last Forever

While Homecoming got its start on college campuses as a fall celebration of the first football game of the season where alumni would return to their alma maters, it eventually spread to high schools. The traditions of high school Homecomings across the country include a parade with floats, royalty election with the crowning of a king and queen, pep rally, alumni reception, mums and garters, all capped off with a big dance. Homecoming is the main event for students and alumni designed to generate enthusiasm for the school. Homecoming week is a great time to come out and enjoy some exciting high school football, get a sneak peek of the band UIL show, enjoy performances by the Blue Angels and Cheerleaders, and soak up the fun and fellowship of a community united as Lobos. This year’s Homecoming theme is “Little Elm Where the Magic Happens.” We would like to encourage all current students, alumni, parents, and community members to participate in this week’s homecoming activities.

Great Things Happening in AP classes!

AP World History students had an eventful day. For the last week, they've been researching Early River Valley Civilizations and categorizing the themes of the civilizations based on the acronym SPICE. They had to create a visual based on 3 different activities that they got to choose from; they could choose from explaining the characteristics of a particular River Valley Civilization, compare two civilizations or argue the most influential civilization. They gathered information in their SPICE Charts and evaluated their peers based on content.


At the end of their day, they played Quizlet Live to compete with their classmates over the knowledge of Ancient people and civilizations in preparation for their test tomorrow. These freshmen had a BLAST.

AP English III students are trying out the AVID strategy Philosophical Chairs today to explore the question, "Was Lincoln's position on slavery based more on political or moral motivations?" They've been exploring related texts all week and are using the texts to support their arguments. There are some truly great thinkers in room 1229!

COLLEGE FAIR

The annual Little Elm High School college fair was held on Wednesday, September 14th from 9:00 am to 11:00 am. Over 140 different colleges and universities were represented from over 20 states and Mexico. Every LEHS student was given an opportunity to attend the fair, speak to college recruiters, and to gain additional insight into the many choices available to our students.


The college fair was hosted by the Little Elm chapter of DECA, an association of marketing students. DECA members arrived up to two hours before school to make sure the gyms were ready to receive our guests and then served as hosts and hostesses to the colleges throughout their visit. Little Elm's award winning DECA chapter consists of over 120 students focused on careers in Business, Marketing, Finance and Entrepreneurship and is annually one of the largest chapters in the DFW area.


For additional information on college planning contact Mrs. Brown, LEHS College and Career Readiness Counselor at kbrown@littleelmisd.net. For additional information on the Little Elm chapter of DECA contact Mr. Hutley at rhutley@littleelmisd.net .
