LOT Blue Devils Holiday Blog

Dear LHS/CTEi Learning Community,
     For the last several weeks it's been wonderful to learn about how Leominster High School and the Center for Technical Education Innovation embraces the holiday season.  From the Annual Breakfast with Santa to the LHS Winter Concert, everyone seems to be getting into the spirit of the season.  In fact, if you'd like to see the several dozen shows from our musically gifted, see the link for the recently posted playlist:  Leominster Music Videos You Tube Playlist.

      In the meantime, great learning and teaching continues both inside and outside of our classrooms.  Check out the latest example of Blue Pride from Shelly Saben's art room, compliments of Kyra Y.:
