The Musical, “Beauty and the Beast”, was a huge success. The amount of work put in was obviously reflected in the final product. This year brought an increased challenge with multiple school closures due to inclement weather but the entire cast and crew was able to pull it together. It was a true community effort with students, staff and parents working together. All involved should be extremely proud of their accomplishments.
Another important event will take place in March. Spirit week will be held the week of March 30th. 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 very successful completion and spring sports are about to begin their seasons. 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 communitymembers give to our student athletes.
The district is very excited to announce the opening of the Lancaster/Depew Federal Credit Union branch in Lancaster High School. The Academy of Finance students will assist a Credit Union employee in the day to day operations through internships. It is a powerful example of the schools and community working together to simultaneously provide a service to both students and residents.
Spring is a time when theAdministration has a dual role. We are facilitating the end of this school year while planning for the beginning ofthe 2014-2015 school year. 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.
Please take advantage of the energy that comes with this time of year and increase the positive communication between students, parents and the schools!
