Principal Colleen Fields - Class of 2022

Jan 31
Thank you, LHS students, parents, and community!!

It was an OUTSTANDING Winter Carnival weekend!  We had so much fun welcoming all the "little Lancers" and their families to our school to have fun during these long winter months.

I want to extend my gratitude to our Lancer Parent Organization ​and our Winter Carnival chairpersons, Dawn Werk and Vanessa Fitts, for their hard work and dedication to our students.  I also wanted to extend a sincere thank you to all of the committee co-chairs who helped make the day of the Carnival run so smoothly.  Thank you to our students who gave their time and talent to making this event a fun and successful one for all of our community visitors.  And, to our outstanding community, thank you for bringing your children to LHS to celebrate all that is right with our schools!  

I am humbled by everyone's generosity and kindness.  I hope you enjoyed the day and know that your efforts are deeply appreciated by the Class of 2022!
