Attention!  If you are a graduating male attending the University of Kansas in the fall of 2020 please see Mrs Bradfield in student services for a Scholarship opportunity.  

Tonight our boys basketball team will host the Wichita South Titans for their first round sub-state game. The game will be at 6:00pm in the main gym. Activity Tickets, Student ID's, Staff ID's, passes, and season tickets are not accepted for this KSHSAA sponsored event. Tickets are $5 for students and $7 for adults. The winner of this game moves on in the tournament to play Saturday at 6:00pm.

Listen up - parking, Parking, PARKING!  For those of you who have been saving your ROAR tickets for preferred parking, this is your day! Put your tickets gold box in the Main Office.  One drawing per week will be held, with the prize being a front-row parking spot for the next week!  Remember, you must hold a valid driver's license and have an LHS parking permit in order to win AND this prize is not transferable to another driver.  If you're not interested in parking, you can still win gift cards to McDonalds, Dunkin Donuts, or Panera. Thanks to all who are meeting the school-wide expectations of Respect, Our Best Effort, Academic Achievement, and Responsibility.

Staff and Students, we are in full swing for "Sight for Third World Countries." Bring your gently used prescription eyeglasses and sunglasses to rooms 210, 101, Mod 4, 206 and the Library for the entire month of March. Give the gift of sight to someone who can't afford to see without your glasses.

Are you interested in taking more action against climate change? Come to environmental club in Ms. Ball’s new room 197 after school today for a presentation from the Sunrise Movement, a youth led climate activism group!

Make sure to sign up for the blood drive at the stuco lunch table today. The drive will be tomorrow, Thursday, March 5. If you’re 16 then you need a parent permission form which you can pick up at the stuco table at lunch. 17 and up can simply sign up for a time. 

Applications for the 2020-21 Link Crew are now available.  If you didn't receive a copy of the application during your 7th hour on Thursday, please see one of the Link Coordinators to get one.  The Link Coordinators are Ms. Schrag, Mr. Frye, Mr. Lane, Ms. Coursen, Ms. Leuschen, and Ms. Reimers. All completed applications are due by 3:30 p.m. on Thursday, March 5 - BEFORE Spring Break begins!  Turn in your applications to the box in the Main Office by Ms. McCaleb's desk. Questions?  Ask one of the Link Coordinators - and get ready to welcome the Chesty Lion class of 2024!

Do you need a summer job?  Like being outside and watching baseball?  Coach Stoll is looking for a tournament director!  Games are on the Fridays-Sunday at the LHS baseball field. For more information, please talk to Coach Stoll.  And remember, it's a great day to be a Chesty Lion.

The Message in the Margins from the Public Library will be here Thursday during the lunch hour.

NHS wants your pants!! We are sponsoring a denim drive for Habitat for Humanity.  The collection box is in the main office.  The denim will be repurposed, so any condition is perfect to donate! 

AVID Seniors are back at it again with another Service Learning Project. We are partnering with the Lawrence Lions Club. Starting March 2 we will be collecting gently used prescription eyeglasses, and prescription sunglasses to send overseas to third world countries. Make sure that you place a piece of tape on the glasses letting us know the prescription, so that it will be easier to give them out. Remember, if you don't need them anymore, someone else does. Drop-off locations are: Mr. Miles Rm. 210, Mrs. Henry Rm. 206, Student Services Rm. 101, Ms. Oswald Mod 4, and in the Library.

Don’t forget to take advantage of after school tutoring for 1 hour in the Library Classroom with certified teachers.

YOU HAVE THE P.O.W.E.R. to BE GREAT! IT’S A GREAT DAY TO BE A LION!!
