Welcome back, Cardinals! We hope you had a fun, relaxing, wonderful Spring Break and were able to enjoy time with your families and friends. As this year's PARCC testing finishes up at the end of the month we look forward to the next chapter of our school year, including the annual Mr. LHS Show, concerts, the Senior Prom, Senior Awards, and Graduation...just to name a few! As a reminder, spring sports have gotten under way and are a fun opportunity to spend time with friends, enjoy the sunshine, and support your fellow Cardinals. Be sure to catch a few games/matches/meets when you can!

Hats Off to Our Library Crew

Did you know that April is School Library Month? It's hard to miss the amazing things our Librarians, assistants, and volunteers have done this year and we would like to thank them for their creativity, hard work, and uplifting messages and activities throughout the year! Earlier this month they hosted the Toddler Town Easter Egg Hunt and a Poetry Slam, and they will hold a book fair on April 29th. In March they celebrated Women's Month by recognizing our female faculty and staff "SHEros...." this month we want to celebrate YOU! Thank you for all that you do to promote a love and appreciation for reading, positive character, and doing good for others!
