A Message from Principal Joshua

Dear Lion Nation,


Spring has arrived and we are excited for all that entails for LSHS. Spring Break! Prom! Senior Activities! Spring Testing! Graduation! We are in our home stretch of preparing our students to finish strong and be ready for their next grade level or college and career if they are a member of the Class of 2022! Diligence and Perseverance are two of the character traits that we have focused on over the last several weeks. I want to encourage you to remind your students about the importance of displaying these traits as they look to finish the school year strong.


Being present at school every day, attending all classes, and completing every assignment given is the recipe for success. We will also be offering EOCT study sessions during the month of April on Saturday April 16th, 23rd, and 30th for all EOCT subjects. We appreciate all of the consistency in your "at home" routines, which help our students manage their school day with all of the tools they can possibly bring with them. Sleep, balanced nutrition, and a continued emphasis on the importance of education is just as important as what they learn during the school day.


Finally, I respectfully request that you take time to complete the DCSS Survey enclosed in this newsletter. This is an opportunity for you to lend your voice as to how the DCSS can continue to improve. Realizing that "Together, we shape the future," it is imperative that we hear directly from you as your opinion matters.


Sincerely,


Mr. Travis Joshua
