Day of Work before and after. Raising money for Perriello Scholarship
Student of the Month
More scholar than student, junior Damon French pursues many fascinating paths of knowledge, including classic science fiction, ‘70s progressive rock, and the psychology of cities. It’s as if he cannot help but seek out intellectual challenges. He could possibly have the best vocabulary of anyone at LHS. His short fiction is outstanding; he’s able to combine plot, characters, and imagery in narratives rich in resonance and meaning. Despite, or possibly as part of, his impressive talents, he takes full advantage of constructive criticism. Quiet, introverted, and respectful, Damon is above all, a profound thinker. Congratulations, Damon!
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.

Sustaining the Future
Do you have plastic bags or film lying around? Students for a Sustainable Future (SSF) are now collecting both at LHS for recycling!
Collection bins are in the main foyer outside the athletic office and in room 14 (Art room). The plastic is delivered to Hannaford's once a month. They in turn collect the plastic for Trex, a company that manufactures plastic lumber for decking. After starting the collection in January, SSF has collected 160 lbs. of plastic bags and film, which filled 17 large trash bags!
Recyclable plastic includes grocery bags, case overwrap, produce bags, wood pellet bags, bread bags, newspaper sleeves, bubble wrap, and packaging pillows. Plastic needs to be clean and dry! Click HERE for more details.
Parents and students with plastic film they would like to recycle can drop it off at one of the collection bins.
