This is just a friendly reminder of the LOLHS dress code guidelines.
As spring comes rushing in, the dress code seems to get forgotten... hence the plea for support and assistance.
LOLHS takes great pride in the appearance of our students and believe that student dress reflects upon the quality of our school. In order to help create a positive and professional learning environment we ask the following:

Dylan started with an idea his freshman year and it became a reality his junior year. Dylan has put to use his business savvy to together with his environmental consciousness to create a 'social idea': "The theory is to establish sites on Organic Farms within the United States.

In partnership with the Old Lyme Land Trust (OLLT), Alec started out with the idea to do something on the John Lohman Connecticut River Preserve. It has beautiful terraced fields, and a very majestic point that goes out into the river a little bit. These trails, according to Alec, needed a good spot to stop and admire the nature. Alec's project was to create a Reflection Area, a spot with a good seat, and a fantastic view where you can sit and close your eyes, and embrace the nature around you. Through many days of hard planning, and running all over Old Lyme, East Lyme, and Old Saybrook collecting donations from various businesses, namely Laysville Hardware and UBS, I gathered my volunteers and built the benches, as well as installed them, in 2 days. They should be there for decades to come, beckoning people to embrace the beauty that surrounds them in this world that moves way too fast.
Nice Work Alec!
