Congratulations to all of our students who took AP tests in spring 2016 and especially those who achieved the distinction of becoming AP Scholars! On February 8 at 9:20am there will be an assembly in the LRHS auditorium for current AP students and last year's AP scholars. Parents are welcome to attend and see their student's celebrated. The purpose of the assembly is both to acknowledge the success of our students in AP classes, and to share information with students about registering for the test this Spring.
On February 3, LRHS will be hosting our second event titled Ignite the Light during fifth and sixth period. This event, designed in collaboration with students and faculty at LRHS, invites any student who wishes to engage in a “town-hall” style discussion on matters such as marginalization, diversity, and inclusion on a school and county-wide level. As part of our time together, we will also be outlining ways we can be more inclusive as a school community. Students interested in attending will have the opportunity to sign up this week (Monday-Thursday) during lunch.
Course registration for the 2017-2018 school year begins on Wednesday, January 19. Below is important information on the course registration process. Visit the HCPSS website for the complete list of Approved High School Courses. Students will be receiving scheduling information and forms during Lightning Time on Wednesday, January 19.
