From Our Principal, Ms. Boozer

September 12, 2008

This is the first of several communications we will be sending to you this school year with the goal of keeping you informed. This school year got off to a very smooth start because of the cooperation of the entire staff and the enthusiasm of our student body. We look forward to this enthusiasm with parent help and support throughout the school year.

The Lanphier LEAP (parent and teacher organization) will be sponsoring our annual OPEN HOUSE on Wednesday, September 17, 2008, beginning at 6:30 p.m. in the COMMONS. Please have your student fill out his/her schedule and bring it with you to our Open House. The Open House format has been designed so parents will receive important information concerning Lanphier. Following the general meeting in the Commons, parents will be dismissed to follow their child's schedule and meet their son/daughter(s) teachers. During this meeting, we encourage you to set up a parent-teacher conference. There will be grade specific meetings from 6:00 to 6:30 to cover important information, such as, credits, electives, ACT, college visit, scholarships, and general academic supports available to your students.

All parents are invited to attend the LEAP meeting on Wednesday, October 15, 2008, at 5:30 p.m. in Room 124 at Lanphier High School. The following dates are the LEAP meetings for the rest of the school year: November 19, December 17, January 21, February 18, March 18, April 15, and May 20.

Senior parents are reminded that seniors planning on attending college must sign up for the October ACT Test by September 20, 2008. Forms are available in the Academic Center. Help in preparing for the ACT Test is also available in the Academic Center.
