September 30, 2016

Hello Leander Lion Family,

Happy Friday Lions! The first six weeks of the 2016-2017 school year are in the books! We have had a wonderful start to the year. Thank you for supporting your students and our school as we continue to prepare our students for the coming year and beyond. As we prepare for the coming month and next six weeks we wanted to update you on a few happenings.


This week we are supporting Green Ribbon Week Raising Awareness to Mental Illness and Abuse. Each day will have a theme where a club or an organization will serve as a sponsor. On Friday we will have a Forum for 30 minutes. All students are invited to attend, however, students do have the opportunity to opt out if they do not want to take part in the forum.

SAVE THE DATE: **********October 3rd, 2016 3:45 - 6:15 PM**********
We had our first meeting this past Monday, September 26th. Students had the opportunity to hang out, eat pizza, study, and take part in a free afterschool program just for LHS! We will be back at it this Monday!

Students have the opportunity to:
Learn - Free Academy of Awesome classes are offered each month!
Hangout - Shoot pool, play ping pong, perfect your SpikeBall serve or train for our upcoming tabletop Olympics
Grow! - Coffee is brewing and tutoring, mentoring, & community service hours are available. Bring a study group!
