Two Week Look Ahead - March 27, 2017

Good afternoon.  It hardly feels like the spring season, but the calendar is saying so and our sports teams are already a week into practices with games scheduled for next week.  Last week, the 10th grade took the ELA MCAS.  The next MCAS testing for 10th grade will be in May.  Due to all of the snow days during 3rd term, we have extended the term from April 7th to April 14th (which is an early release day for professional development).  Grades will close before April break and grades will be finalized in PowerSchool on April 28th. 

In conjunction with the Lunenburg Police Department, we will be having our mandatory Senior/Parent meetings.  To participate in Senior activities, all Seniors and at least one parent must attend one of the two meetings.  For your convenience, one meeting is in the evening and one is scheduled before school.  We will outline all of the Senior events, the calendar, expectations of students, and some other important topics.  The first meeting is Mon…

Two Week Look Ahead - February 21, 2017

I hope everybody is enjoying their February vacation. Temperatures could hit 60 degrees later in the week, so spring is on the way! The Competitive Class Plays were last week. While the Junior class won the competition, all three of the grades had outstanding performances. Being a judge is not easy! If you were not able to attend this year, make a point of coming out to see our talented students hit the big stage next year. Additionally, there will be a musical put on later in May. More details on that to come.
There are a few things I wanted to bring your attention to, over the next couple of weeks.  Tomorrow, we will be hosting a MASSCUE technology event.  Over 150 educators from across the state will be here for various technology workshops centered on Google.  It is amazing how far we have come over the last few years with our technology enhancements, that we are now able to host such an event.

We have started the course registration process for next year.  We will kick thing…

Two Week Look Ahead - January 18, 2017

This is my first two week look ahead of the New Year.  First semester is coming to a close at the end of the week.  It’s hard to believe we are already at the midpoint of the school year.  We often make resolutions pertaining toimproving our physical health and bringing up grades, in the New Year.  It might be a good idea to look at our overall health (physical and mental) when looking at goals.  At LHS, we have recognized that there is increased pressure and stress on our students in recent years.  This stress can manifest itself in many different ways.  Most times, the stress that we all deal with is normal and manageable.  However, there are also many individuals who are dealing with more than just typical stress and pressure.  Often times, those students are dealing with anxiety, depression, or another form of mental illness.  We want to help to bring awareness to mental health concerns, let students know that there is help available if they need it, and work to debunk the stigma …
