RoX (Ruling Our eXperiences) is coming to LHS!

Our friends at the Lakewood Education Foundation are sponsoring ROX at LHS. ROX is a co-curricular program focused on education, safety, health and the empowerment of girls!! Permission forms are out and the group is open to all girls 9-12. Return forms ASAP to get in the groups. Space is limited. Thank you LEF!

CTEC for Seniors?!?!?

You read that right! In addition to the 2 year programs for high school students, did you know CTEC has two senior only programs? Students attend for partial days their senior year in either Manufacturing Fundamentals or Healthcare and earn their academics at LHS for the other part of the day. The best part? Earning a 12 point Industry recognized credential towards graduation!! Class of 2021 students interested can apply for admission here.
Big picture

$cholarship$ anyone?

Seniors have several opportunities to seek out local scholarship sources via Naviance, the Class of 2020 Google Classroom and outside the Student Success Center are paper copies of local scholarships. Right now, there are over 20 local scholarships out there for our students. Sign up for the Remind for Class of 2020 to get those applications too!!

Intent to Participate Forms are due to the counseling office by M 4/6/2020 for next year. Students in CCP need to do this form each year they plan to participate.
