With Spirit Week about halfway through, we are so proud (but of course not surprised) to witness the tremendous school spirit being shown by our students, faculty, and staff over the past few days! Watch the next Smore for some pictures from the week!

Tonight is our annual Back-to-School Night event, which will begin at 7:00 p.m. in the auditorium. We invite our guests to arrive at 6:30 p.m. to visit the main hallway, which will be lined representatives from many of the different clubs, activities, and other organizations that help make LHS tick. During the evening, you will also have an opportunity to hear from our administrators and meet your child's teachers! First period classes will be posted in on the wall across from the auditorium, and you will receive a copy of your child's schedule during "first period." We're looking forward to seeing you all this evening!
