Lebanon Gym Floor
Student of the Month
Junior Grayson Daly is known among her teachers to have a wonderful attitude towards learning. "I just look forward to seeing her every day in my class," said one LHS faculty member. She is always prepared, always willing to try things, and sets such an amazing example for other students - but in a very quiet way. The seriousness with which Grayson takes her role as a student is offset by a sweet nature...never trying to outshine anyone, and always giving the credit to others. It is simply so much fun to teach someone like her. Congratulations, Grayson!
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.

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.
Congratulations to the four LHS band students who have been selected to participate in the
2015 New Hampshire All-State Festival!!
The All-State Festival is for the most outstanding music students in the state. Auditions are extremely competitive and selection to this festival is one of the highest honors a music student can achieve.
Two of these students had particularly tremendous performances in their auditions: Rachel Billings earned the highest score in the state on bassoon and Will Merchant earned the 3rd highest score in the state on trumpet. These two students have been selected for the NH Chamber Festival, an elite festival that will allow them to perform in a woodwind quintet and brass choir, respectively.
