-It’s HERE! Today we are kicking off our “We Are Grateful & Thankful” Social Emotional Learning themed week! We will have a SPIRIT DAY theme for each day of the week! Here are the days! We hope everyone will participate: 

TODAY: Stuffed & Ready for A Nap Day - Wear school appropriate pajama day! 

Tomorrow: Turkey Hunt Day! Everyone wear your camo or fluorescent hunting gear!

Thursday: Flannel Festival Day - Wear your favorite flannel or plaid gear 

Friday: Pumpkin Pie Day - Wear your orange gear to school today! 

-Also...we will be holding a FUN assembly during 7th hour this Friday! If you donate an approved micro-pantry item or provide a $2 donation for the local food pantries, then you can come join the FUN! Activities during the assembly include a faculty vs. staff relay race and games, a premiere of the thankfulness shoutout video and pictures from spirit week, announcement of micro-pantry donation grade level winner, and MORE! Bring the micro-pantry donation Tuesday through Thursday of this week and drop it off in the cart that corresponds to your grade level before school in the Small Commons and get your name on the list.  The grade levels will be competing against each other to see who can bring in the most donations!  You will be delivered a ticket to the assembly Friday morning! You can also donate $2 to the local food pantries in the Small Commons during lunch on Thursday or Friday to get an assembly ticket as well! A flyer has been sent to your Canvas announcements regarding details of the assembly. 

-Starting TOMORROW (TUESDAY) at both A & B Lunch, we will be selling Grateful Grams for $1! What is a Grateful Gram? You can choose a friend or a staff member, write their name on our Grateful Gram form with a short “grateful message” and we will deliver the form and a treat to the recipient during 7th hour the week of Thanksgiving! Show how grateful you are to the deserving members at LHS by purchasing a Grateful Gram at lunch this week! These will be sold Tuesday-Thursday during lunch! 

-ATTENTION seniors.  The date for the practice SAT day  has CHANGED.  Because of this, there is a NEW PERMISSION SLIP if you want to have an excused absence that day AND have already taken the SAT.  The new permission slip is GOLD and can be picked up in the main office, from Mrs. Anderson in room 127, and from  Mrs. Davis in room 249.  Be sure to get a form and return it by TOMORROW! 

Now for a Moment of Silence 

-Please Rise for the Pledge of Allegiance. 

"I pledge allegiance to the Flag of the United States of America, and to the Republic for which it stands, one Nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all."

-Now it’s time for today’s welcoming ritual: It is GRATITUDE & THANKFULNESS SPIRIT WEEK HERE AT LHS! 

To practice gratitude, take one picture each day this week of something or someone for whom you are grateful. You will then have photos as a reminder of the good things in your life. What or who might your picture be of today?
