Two Week Look Ahead - September 30, 2016

Good morning.  As we officially say goodbye to summer and welcome autumn, activities at LHS are really heating up.  Float meetings have started and our athletic teams are at about the halfway point of their seasons (having played most of their games on the road.)  The new fields will be sodded next week and the bleachers should be finished soon.  The turf field was stripped of the old turf and hauled off site.  Construction should begin on the new turf field in the near future.  We will have to see (depending on the weather) if the track will be resurfaced this fall or in the spring. 

Here are some updates from the guidance office:
PSAT Registration ends at 5pm on Thursday, October 6th

Make sure when you register to choose the building you wish to support! The first 400 registrants get a Miles for Myles Dri-Fit tee-shirt. We look forward to seeing you there! Flyers went home with the students last week for more information.
