LOLHS would like to RECOGNIZE AND CONGRATULATE
has been selected as a winner of the The Travelers Employees' Club Scholarship.
Pursuant to an Agreement with National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), this Special Scholarship award is sponsored by The Travelers Employees' Club.
Special Scholarships are underwritten by many of the business organizations that also provide Merit Scholarship® awards for students who qualify as Finalists in the National Merit® Scholarship Program. These corporate sponsors wish to offer a fixed number of awards each year for students who meet their specified criteria—usually children of employees or residents of communities where the company has facilities. In years when the number of such Finalists is less than the total number of scholarships a sponsor wishes to offer, the company or business supplements its National Merit Scholarships with Special Scholarships for other high performers in the National Merit Program. Winners of Special Scholarships are chosen based on their academic accomplishments from a pool of candidates who fulfilled the sponsor's criteria and scored high on the 2018 PSAT/NMSQT®.
Nice Job Samantha!
We now know that we are going to be out another month at least! We know that it is already week 5 of being home and week 4 of distance learning. Even though we have school work to do, we have to stay connected, laugh, have some fun... together - but alone! We want you to join in on some fun - help to keep it
Here is Fiona final product: a waist band made from a shoelace! True life skills!
And How do you have a track meet alone? Check out what Emma and Bianca did:
Mrs. Duhamel's note to her period 7 class:
What I would give to see period 7 trying to put their chairs up FIVE minutes before the bell or leaving their borrowed pencil on their desk for me to put back. . . but I won't single out anyone (Sal, Zach . . . lol).
What I would give for period 4 students to trickle in after lunch with ice-cream, chips, and/or ENORMOUS brownies in hand . .. but I won't single out anyone (Alec, Max, and Phil . . . lol).
What I would give to launch into my "teacher look" due to phones . . .yes . .. let's not single anyone out (Nate, Colby, Andrew, Jeremy . . . lol).
What I would give to hear your cheerful greetings as you enter class (Dylan, Darin, Jeremy, Nathaniel, Kaitlyn, Charlie, Parker, Corbin, Faith, Britney, Nate, Ryan M., Finn, Liam, Quinn, Aidan G., Kevin, Sam R., Max)
What I would give to hear your pleasant "have a nice day" as you leave class (Callum, Andrew, Aidan R., Lauren, Bryce, Angie, Gabe, Ryan T., Luc, Sam G., Sal, Kamber, Jenny and Lisbet)
What I would give to be BACK IN SCHOOL with all of you!!
At the end of the day, you know I say this all with a SMILE---yes---I am SMILING as I type this. These little high school quirks make you YOU and give color and character to our class.
Please submit your work---
Stay healthy and be well!
