Congratulations to Brynn McGlinchey for being selected as February's Rotary Student of the Month. Brynn was selected for her excellence, enthusiasm and perseverance in her studies of both Chinese and Spanish. Her leadership skills are prevalent both in and out of the classroom and recognized by her teachers who praise her for her humility and altruism. Brynn plans to continue her studies in both languages and utilize them in her future.
WELL DONE BRYNN!
The new LOLHS Show Choir, “Amped Up,” participated in its first competition this weekend at Shepherd Hill High School in Dudley, Massachusetts.
The 24 Amped Up students performed their show “Broadway Musical Magic,” receiving a rating of Silver and a 3rd Runner Up trophy. The group also received the Judges’ Award for Best Overall Soloists, and senior Anna Donato was selected as best performer in the ensemble.
The group will participate in two more competitions this season, and a benefit dinner is being sponsored by the Old Lyme Inn on Sunday, February 25 (contact the Inn for details).
In order to contribute to the positive environment in school, members of the LOLHS Spanish Honor Society created a project called You are a star. Students cut a star for each student in the school. They separated the stars with four different colors (freshman, sophomore, junior and senior). On the front of the star, they wrote the name of the student. On the back, they wrote a compliment in Spanish from a friend, another student, a classmate or a teammate. We believe that every single student in LOLHS is a star in something.
A MESSAGE FROM OUR WILDCAT ENVIRONMENTAL CONCERN GROUP:
You may have noticed some new containers around the building... outside the gym, science wing, and custodial office. There are three Trex containers placed around the building in which we can recycle: grocery bags, newspaper sleeves, bread bags, ice bags, case overwrap, ziploc and other reclosable bags, dry cleaning bags produce bags, bubble wrap, cereal bags...
Our school will be not only helping the environment, keeping our land and water a little bit cleaner, our fish and wildlife a little bit safer; but will also be competing against other schools to collect the most film which will ultimately, by TREX, be turned into decking or outdoor furniture. If we win, we will get an outdoor bench. So, PLEASE, bring in your plastics, and contribute to the cause. We will be getting the word out there through all possible venues. Many thanks on behalf of the Community Service Club. And please...
remember to be responsible:
rethink, react, reuse, repurpose, recycle, reinvent!!
