Lenape Special Persons' Day

Big image

On Friday, December 13, Lenape welcomed senior citizens from the community for our annual Special Persons’ Day. Lenape’s guests enjoyed a concert showcasing our students in chorus, band, and orchestra followed by lunch. The meal was prepared and served by Lenape students in Family and Consumer Science classes. Student ambassadors and members of the National Junior Honor Society helped in many ways and joined in conversation at the lunch tables with senior citizens. Lenape is very proud of this tradition and our partnership with the community.

Boys' Basketball Tryouts

The Lenape Boys' Basketball season begins in December with our open gyms for 7th and 8th grade students and tryouts for both grades in January. There WILL be cuts on both the 8th grade and 7th grade teams this year. Due to the high volume of students coming out for the teams cuts will be necessary.
