Coat Drive. NHS is sponsoring a coat drive this week to benefit the Ledyard Clothing Exchange. Bring in coats in good condition which would fit children and teens. Drop off boxes are at the main and library entrances!

Blood Drive. The blood drive is back and better than ever! This year the Student Congress will be holding its fall blood drive on November 3rd.  New this year, anyone 16 years or older can donate with parent permission. The blood bank is at an all time low and we can help save lives by donating.  Sign up for an appointment during lunch beginning October 18th.  Look for the table to sign up to save lives!

AP Testing. Any student taking an AP course and planning to take the AP exam in May needs to register! 
To be fully registered to take an AP exam in the spring, you must  join your teacher's AP Classroom through CollegeBoard AND bring an AP form/payment to the LHS School Counseling Department. The deadline to register is Monday November 8, 2021. The fee is $96/test. If you receive free/reduced lunch, the fee is waived. For anyone who registers after November 8, there will be an additional $40 late fee. If you have any questions, please see Mrs. Toppa or Mrs. Duczynski.

Voice of Democracy. It's that time of year again - time to win free money!  All you have to do is enter the annual Voice of Democracy audio-essay contest. The national first place winner receives a $30,000 scholarship paid directly to the recipient’s American university, college or vocational/technical school. Other national scholarships range from $1,000-$16,000, and the first place winner from each VFW Department (state) wins a minimum scholarship of $1,000.  This year's theme is "America: Where Do We Go From Here?"   If you are interested, see Mrs. Hargus in room 403 for more information.
