Shout-Outs

  • Shout-out to our Freshmen Students of the Week from last week: Madyson Agun and Conner Orr!
  • Shout-out to the Varsity Football Team for their 20-13 victory over Madison County High School last Friday!
  • Lee High School has been chosen by Generation Esports as one of the winning schools of the 2022 Learn and Build STEAM (LABS) program! Only 15 high schools across the nation were selected as winners. With support from AMD, the LABS program supplies 25 esports labs to middle schools, high schools, and colleges across the continental United States to help integrate esports into their communities, providing amazing opportunities for their students and educators. As a result of winning, our E-Sports team will receive everything they needed to equip our very own scholastic esports club including thousands of dollars of new computer equipment. As a part of the LABS program, the students will also be taught how to build the very computers the E-Sports team will be using. In addition to equipment, Generation Esports, in conjunction with the High School E-Sports League (HSEL), will award Lee with a school-wide unlimited game pass for the Fall and Spring major, which opens doors for as many new students to explore E-Sports as possible. Lee HS E-Sports sponsor Mr. Rominske said “It is incredible that we have been given this opportunity to grow E-Sports here at Lee. I am so grateful they chose us and hope that we can continue to grow this new sport and community to lift, empower, and engage all who are involved. This new lab means the world to me and the kids on the team. I started E-Sports last fall with just a hope that it would be something. Now that we will have an E-Sports lab we are more than just a dream. We are an organization.”
  • Shout-out to our students who finished independent reading books in their English classes last week! Pictured below are Lyra Farr, Rahkel Smith, Cameron Carter, Alex'Sean McKinney, Rhyanna Early, La'Nae Farrior, Aniyah Tolbert, Toby Hinckley-Bates, and Lauren Todd!

Magnet Corner

Celebrations

  • The Technical Theatre magnet worked on proper cable coiling for sound and lighting equipment. In order to motivate the students, there is a cable coiling competition every year. This year, Dylan McNish won the Freshman/Sophomore competition, and Jennae Leslie won in the Junior/Senior class. This is an industry standard technique and important in job training for future technicians.

  • Our Music department is working with Oakwood University to build partnerships between our vocal and instrumental programs and the Universities. We are so excited about the college expertise that our students will have access to now as a part of this partnership.

  • Shout-out to Dr. Carey from UAH and the Huntsville Youth Community Chorus for visiting the Vocal Magnet last week!

  • Last week the Theatre Production Magnet learned about how to take proper costume measurements. Thanks to Gillian Stocks for being a community helper and assisting with the lesson!


Upcoming Events
  • *The Lee High School Choir and Musical Theatre Students will be performing the National Anthem on August 31st at the Rocket City Trash Pandas game at 6:30pm! All faculty, staff, students, and families are invited. Tickets are $17. They will also be performing the National Anthem this Thursday, September 1st, at Milton Frank Stadium before the Lee vs. Hazel Green Football Game!
