Student of the Month

Senior Maddie Brown approaches her school work with meticulous attention to detail,  exceptionally high standards, and great responsibility. She is polite, friendly, and respectful of both her peers and adults, and she has earned the respect of all who know her. Beyond taking a rigorous program at LHS, Maddie excels as a ballerina- dancing 15-20 hours per week at Lebanon Ballet School, and dancing lead roles in full-length ballet performances. Maddie was accepted into the Washington D.C. School of Ballet last summer. She spent five weeks living at American University and dancing eight hours per day with the best teen dancers from all over the world. Maddie has the rare time management, organization and leadership skills, and we believe that she deserves recognition as our student of the month. Congratulations, Maddie!

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.
