Principal's Blog--January 2017

Dear LHS/CTEi Learning Community,
            It's been busy at our school since we returned for the New Year.  The students have completed the first semester, had their mid-year exams (a first time experience for many) and kicked off semester 2 just last week.  Our most recent assemblies focused on preparing the students for the coming year through their selection of course requests.  The power point below was shared with the student body and outlines the process for selecting courses:


In the meantime, here's what's been going on outside the classrooms:
