Fall 2016

Back to School Night was a resounding success! Thanks to all the parents who attended. Our staff enjoyed meeting you. This fall brings a renewed spirit at LQHS. Our theme is BeBold! Our staff are stepping outside their comfort zones to create rigorous, relevant, and engaging learning experiences aligned with the Common Core State Standards. We are redefining excellence every day! Your students will be asked to think critically, collaborate with others and respond in writing and orally using high level academic language.

Here is a link to a blog regarding "struggling learners." The idea is that all students should struggle when they learn. Please, take a look at it.

All Students Should be Struggling Learners
