Lathrop High School Weekly Update

Fairbanks, AK

August 31, 2018

This wraps up another busy week at Lathrop! All schedule changes are now completed. Students are getting settled into their classes, and our first Spirit Week is just around the corner.

Some upcoming events to put on your radar: September 10-15th will be our Homecoming Spirit Week complete with dress up days, the Homecoming football game Saturday followed by our Homecoming Dance on the 15th open to all Lathrop students (no outside guests). It will be right after the game in the Lathrop gym. $5 at the door.

Another big event coming our way will be our Open House/Launch Night on Wednesday, September 19th from 6-8pm. I'll send out the agenda to you next week. This will be a chance to meet your student's teachers and explore what Lathrop has to offer in a traditional open house format; but will also be our launch night to show you and the community our commitment to personalized learning - helping each student at Lathrop move forward. We hope you will join the LHS Quest on the 19th!

Enjoy the Labor Day weekend with your family. School resumes on Tuesday with our regular Tuesday schedule (no changes to class period rotations next week).

Innovations Academy has openings

Innovations Academy is a school within a school right here at Lathrop High School. It is an alternative to the traditional way of doing school. If your student is looking for a different way to earn his/her credits, working in a self-paced environment with teacher support, I encourage you to apply today.
