Community Packing Day

This past Sunday was Community Packing Day.  Thank you to all of the students, teachers and parents who made the day a success. You are appreciated!

Origami Project in Geometry

Every year, Ms. Muhammad teaches a unit on origami in her geometry classes. She uses origami to engage students because it contains geometric components such as symmetry and transformation. For the past two years, LHS senior and origami-aficionado Gianna Hermogeno has taught students how to make three-dimensional models in Ms. Muhammad classes. On her experience in the classroom Gianni said: “It was a fun experience to be a mentor to my younger peers in the school. I would like to come back while I’m in college to teach this class again!” The beautiful origami project will be on display next year in our new facility.

Final Exams Schedule

Semester final exams will be held December 15-18th. There will be two days of review and two days of exams. Students should make plans to complete all assigned and missing work for each of their classes. The Academic Support Center is a great place for students to review and receive support for final exams. The ASC is open for 90 minutes every day after school.

Ribbon Cutting Ceremony

Come witness the opening of our new facility on January 5th! Leadership invites students and families to join us for light morning refreshments as we witness the historic ribbon-cutting of our new state-of-the-art home at 350 Seneca Ave. from 8 to 8:30 A.M.
