I know this is late in coming but I recently received these pictures from the incredible production of Radium Girls. Take a look!
JV Math Team celebrates their win over all schools at their third match last Thursday, Nov. 30th at RHAM, with Juliette Atkinson scoring the highest, at 17 points, followed closely by Ryan McTigue, Connie Pan, Rachael Larson, Ted Wayland, Evan St. Louis, Nikolai Stephens-Zumbaum, Mary Wholean and Brendan McTigue. Go Wildcats!
Chemistry classes held a Town Council meeting about a fish kill in a local river. Based on data that the kids analyze they have to make a claim as to what killed fish (according to the role they are playing), cite evidence to back up their claim, decide who is responsible for it and what should be done about it. Nick White was the major and was in charge of running the meeting. Due to the high levels of nitrate and phosphate found in the river it was decided that the farmers were responsible because of their use of fertilizers.
Thanks to a generosity of the Florence Griswold museum, the LOLHS Local History Club got a free "behind the scenes" interactive tour of the main house. The participants learned about the extensive preservation efforts of the museum to help bring the history and art of Old Lyme alive. The local history club has been invited to contribute to a new interactive website, set to be published in 2018. This website will help elementary students learn about Connecticut history and art... right here in our back yard!
This year's crystal growing contest. The contest ran 5 weeks and had over 160 schools entering nationwide. The goal: grow the best single crystal with mass, clarity and smooth surfaces being important factors. LOLHS crystals were sent out last week ... stay tuned for the results!
Nice work Wildcat Scientists!
Every year the LOLHS National Honor Society sponsors a Toy Drive to help support our community during the holiday season. This year, we are promoting and encouraging that every homeroom group help support this effort by selecting a berry from the giving wreath to purchase a gift or by donating $1.00 to put toward a gift card that will go to the same cause. Berries on the wreath are suggestions and represent only a portion of all the people in our area in need.
Gift or card... all will be greatly appreciated and are needed! I am hoping that we will have 100% participation from our homerooms... and based on our amazing Wildcat pride and spirit, I am confident we will achieve the goal!
WE CAN DO THIS LOLHS!
Congratulations to Sam Fuchs and Sarah Kwon for being named 2018 National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists.
It is an honor to recognize both Sarah and Sam for their academic achievement. They represent less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors who have been named 2018 National Merit Scholar Semifinalists. Semifinalists are designated on a state-representational basis. The number of Semifinalists named in each state is proportional to the state's percentage of the national total of graduating high school seniors. Juniors enter the National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the PSAT/NMSQT (Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test). The PSAT is administered yearly by LOLHS to all 9th, 10th and 11th graders and serves as an initial screen of program entrants.
WELL DONE SAM AND SARAH!
