Parking Lot Protocols. 
This is a reminder that, effective this week, students who drive to school need to have their parking passes displayed in order to be legally parked on campus. This is also a reminder that parking spots are not assigned. It is not your spot. As discussed at class assemblies, there are plenty of spots for everyone.

We are the largest club in the school and our sole focus is on doing as much community service as possible. We do NOT meet during activity period. We meet after school once a month, but if you can’t make our meetings we organize everything via Classroom. Join with code hwqyq2l (that last letter is a lower case L).

Consider applying for a select team of LHS students who will conduct a series of interviews with a local person who lived through the era. We’ll be going to Harlem in the spring as well to learn more. See Mr. Jannke or Mr. Van Frachen for more info.
