Lathrop High School Weekly Update

Fairbanks, AK

September 7, 2018

We are continuing to firm up plans for The LHS Quest - Launch Night on September 19th. This will not be your ordinary open house! The first half of the evening will consist of varied activities for Lathrop families to explore all that we are doing at Lathrop - classroom presentations, activity tables, and details about how we are working to help EVERY student move forward in a more personalized approach to learning. The second portion of the evening parents will have an opportunity to walk through their student's schedule and meet each teacher. We hope you will join us from 6-8pm September 19th. The LHS Quest is the very start of our journey towards personalized learning. What will it look like at Lathrop? Come and see!
