A Note of Thanks from Mr. Jones
I want to thank the ARTS department for all that they did to make the Veterans Day Celebration what it was. Our special guests, our veterans, were especially appreciative; our State Rep Jared Patterson and Councilman John Keating were so impressed and talked about how well the band played, how well the art looked, and how they've never seen a performance like our theater department's.They were also very impressed by our Lighthouse Ambassadors and all of our students that came up to them to introduce themselves. You all are amazing!

LPS Parent Pride Patrol!
Don't know what LPS Parent Pride Patrol is? It is a program for parents to be involved and servant lead. It's an easy job, you are actively present, slightly intimidating, yet friendly and you get to wear a cool vest and have a Walkie Talkie. The Pride Patrol is a welcome presence in the hallways, stairwells and lunchroom. Parents can greet students, build rapport, check for hall passes and monitor safety. The time commitment is minimal. Time slots are in 30-minute increments. Sign up for one or several!
We currently have Pride Patrol on Mondays and Fridays.
Steps to get started:
- If you haven't already done so for this year, you will need to complete the yearly background check (this information is kept confidential) before serving (you don't hear back unless there is an issue)
- Sign up for a time slot here
- Review this list of things to look for and do while on patrol
Show up for your time slot(s) at the Secondary Front Office. You will need to check in with your ID. There will be a special place to get your Pride Patrol vest and Walkie Talkie.
