Dear students, parents, and guardians,
One of the best attributes to being
a resident of Western New York is the change of seasons. No change has been more anticipated than the
one from our recent weather pattern. But
the length of the day signals that winter is coming to an end and obviously
nature will provide us with numerous examples of new beginnings. We want you to
be aware of all that can be accomplished this spring as a student here at
Lancaster High School.
The Musical, Disney’s “The Little
Mermaid”, was a huge success. The amount
of work put in was obviously reflected in the final product. Record numbers attended the production and we
are confident that all were thoroughly delighted with the performance. It was a true community effort with students,
staff and parents working together. All involved should be extremely proud of
Also, Lancaster High School will be
represented by some of our most creative and engaged students in the 3rd Annual
BAND Against Bullying Competition. The competition was created to raise
community awareness of bullying related issues and empower youth to be
advocates for change in their homes, schools and communities.
Another important event will take
place in March. Spirit week will be held the week of March 22nd. Many events are planned to show Lancaster
pride and experience what makes it special to be part of LHS. Please check the website for schedules and I
encourage everyone to participate.
The winter sports season is coming
to a close. Lancaster continues to field some of the most accomplished and
successful sports teams in the area. Many of our athletes are receiving
accolades at the state level. I
appreciate all of the support I have seen parents and community members give to
our student athletes.
The district is very excited to offer
our “Bring Your Own Device” policy for students, allowing access to our Wi-Fi
network to assist with instruction. We again
thank the community for their support as we update our infrastructure in an
effort to keep current with the advances in technology.
Spring is a time when the
Administration has a dual role. We are
facilitating the end of this school year while planning for the beginning of
2015-2016. To that end the scheduling
process is in full implementation. The
counselors are continuing to meet with students to schedule for next year and
give advice regarding future considerations.
Parents and students, please continue talking about those choices
because it is an important, yet exciting, family decision.
advantage of the energy that comes with this time of year and increase the
positive communication between students, parents and the schools!
