Our Latest Guest Speaker
Student of the Month
Josh, a senior, is a self-motivated individual. His grades are outstanding and reflect not only his intelligence, but his personal drive as well. He is a leader in both classroom and extracurricular activities. Teachers often hear students ask him for assistance in understanding classwork, and he immediately responds in a positive, upbeat manner. Josh leads in a similar manner as a sports captain in both Cross Country running and Track and Field. He has never faltered in his ability to make sound judgements. He steers clear of trouble and looks out for other students. Josh is a conscientious individual who represents LHS in the finest manner. Congratulations, Josh!
Students are nominated for their genuine interest in learning, respect for fellow students and faculty, contributions to the school community, and/or overcoming adversity. Students are first nominated and then voted on by faculty & staff.

Poetry Recitation Contest:
Latin 1: 1st Place - Samantha Jones
This annual competition gathers language students from a wide range of high schools to recite poems in their target language (French, German, Latin and Spanish) before a panel of judges and an audience of peers and teachers. These competitors impress the judges year after year with their level of preparation and flair for the "stage." They don't merely speak these verses; they perform them.
