Senior Summit 2018
Senior Summit will take place on Wednesday, October 10th while the underclassmen take the PSAT. This day will be run conference-style, allowing seniors to choose sessions that best meet their needs and interests. However, seniors must make these selections in ADVANCE of Senior Summit by completing the Senior Summit 2018 survey during English 4 classroom visits by Mrs. Wood.
Students who do not pre-register will be assigned sessions to attend, which must be followed for attendance purposes. Meanwhile, students who have passed STAAR, are TSI complete, and not participating in COOL Week who would prefer to use this day as an excused College Visit may do so. This must be indicated on the Senior Summit 2018 survey. It is the student's responsibility to provide proper documentation to the LHS Attendance Office after the visit for this absence to be excused.
