Teachers and department chairpersons representing all subject areas will be available to answer your questions. In addition, several athletic teams, clubs, and activities will be represented and able to provide you with information.
If you are an incoming Class of 2021 family, we would like to invite you to attend a presentation in the Theater from 7:00-7:30 p.m., welcoming you and providing some information to you and your student about the next four years at LHS.
Junior Parents (Class of 2018), your students are about to reach another milestone and will be making some big decisions about their future! Come learn about ACT / SAT testing and test preparation options, resources available at LHS and elsewhere to help, and discuss options for when to test and when to prepare. We will meet in room 180 from 6:00-7:00 p.m. Bring your questions, and we will be done in time for Curriculum Night!
We look forward to seeing you on Thursday evening!

Please join the Renaissance Student Steering Committee in congratulating...
Emma Harris says, "Mrs. Arnet teaches a fun class, but her bubbly and silly personality makes Child Development my favorite class of the day. She does a really great job of diversifying what we do (whether that's a guest speaker, webquest, presentation, or videos). What I love most about Mrs. Arnet's class is that it's never boring, and whenever we're learning it feels more like a conversation than a lecture. Her teaching style is also the perfect balance. She's super-relaxed and fun when we're doing what's expected of us, but when she's disciplining us, she's level-headed and firm-pointing out what you know better than to do rather than being accused. Overall, Mrs. Arnet is a great person and teacher, and if it weren't for her funny stories and amicable personality, I wouldn't find Child Development to be the most enjoyable class of my day."
Wow-kind words from a grateful student! Way to go, Lauren!
On behalf of the Renaissance Student Steering Committee, congrats to Doug Ell's US Government class and Vince Deblasi's Civil War class for having perfect attendance this morning.
To celebrate, they received (sweet, delicious) donuts from our favorite, Donut Palace. Cheers & happy Friday!
Please join the Renaissance Student Steering Committee in congratulating... Danna Phillips.
Student Emma Harris said, "Mrs. Phillips is so genuinely passionate about what she teaches; it's hard to get bored. She's great at making sure everyone understands even if that means reworking it in multiple ways. She is really good at teaching-the perfect balance between sweet & disciplinary. Her class has been really enjoyable this semester (it's honestly the easiest time I've had in a math class)." Erin Keiter added, "She cares about her students and wants them to do well. She is willing to help and take her time to explain. She's so nice and I am very happy I have her as a teacher this year!"
Way to go, Mrs. Phillips-a great teacher and person, all-around!
PS: Mrs. Phillips will be getting a free Chipotle meal and the kids who nominated her will be getting treats from Chick-fil-a and Penn Station. THANKS to our Renaissance sponsors!
