During these unprecedented and unusual times, the Social Studies Department organized and developed a project. Each student was asked to document these times, understanding that when we look back on these times, they will have created something that helps them remember this period and maybe even share it.
Take a look at the project and below, an example of how Fiona Fredricks documented these times!
On Tuesday last week, Coach St Germain and a few of the junior boys surprised our four baseball captains to let them know how much we respect and appreciate what they gave to the LOL baseball program.
Once again our music department does not disappoint...
Take a look!
LOLHS would like to RECOGNIZE AND CONGRATULATE
has been selected as a winner of the
The Eversource Energy Scholarship.
Pursuant to an Agreement with National Merit Scholarship Corporation (NMSC), this Special Scholarship award is sponsored by Eversource Energy Foundation, Inc.
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 Ryan!
Take a look at this video created by Megan Cravinho to keep the Girls Tennis Team connected and having some fun!
The following students are being recognized and celebrated for their excellence in each field of study. Unfortunately, we were unable to celebrate them in person at the Saybrook Point Inn. However, recognizing their achievements and sharing the words of their teachers of why they were selected helps honor them and their achievements.
April's Student of the Month: Fine Arts/ Music
Congratulations to Sophia Griswold for being selected by the Music Department for this honor.
Sophia has been in both band and chorus all through high school, as well as theatrical productions. She is a nationally-recognized Jazz trombonist and was selected for the All National Jazz Band in 2019. She has also participated in All New England, All State, and Regional festivals for jazz and classical trombone, and was selected for Regional and All State ensembles as a vocalist.
In addition to her representation of Lyme-Old Lyme High School, Sophia has been performing professionally in front of audiences since the age of 13, presenting both covers and original music. She has studied music at Jazz at Lincoln Center and the Berklee College of Music, and has performed with the Jazz at Lincoln Center Youth Orchestra, the Newport Jazz Festival, and at Dizzy’s Club Coca-Cola in New York City.
WELL DONE SOPHIA!
May's Student of the Month: Business
Congratulations to Dylan Mulligan for being selected by the Business Department for this honor.
Dylan was selected as the Business Rotary Student of the Month because of the excellence he has demonstrated in the wide variety of courses he has taken in the Business Dept. He has completed a variety of computer programming independent study classes with Mrs. Traver and did an amazing job in each. His final project last year for his independent study class was quiet impressive. He worked for the Tech Team for a couple of years and is always willing to help out with tech issues during class. During distance learning, Dylan is currently taking Social Media Marketing/E-Commerce and his comments, work, and quotes have been very insightful and well thought out. He is doing great work
Dylan is planning on studying Computer Programming in college in which I am sure he will excel. He is currently applying for the Pfizer summer internship program. Dylan has taken advantage of almost every resource offered by the Business Department to better himself and make himself an excellent candidate for a career in Business/Computers.
NICE WORK DYLAN!
June's Student of the Month: PE / Health
Congratulations to Callum Astley for being selected by the Physical Education and Health Department for this honor.
Callum Astley is an exemplary student and a unique young man who constantly strives for excellence. Callum will master a skill yet continue to challenge himself in an effort to reach perfection. He is very competitive with himself and is constantly setting new goals to reach. When he was a sophomore, Callum passed the Physical Fitness Test, but that was not good enough for him. Callum wanted to be part of the elite group of students who earned the Physical Fitness Challenge Award (an extremely difficult award to get). Callum practiced for weeks early in the morning and late in the evening, working on push-ups, flexibility and running. Callum passed the Challenge Award because of his mental toughness and grit, which epitomizes his true character. It is not surprising that Callum continues to take the test even though he no longer is required to do so. This is why Callum is going to become a great Physical Education teacher one day. Callum is going to continue his education at Springfield College where he will study Physical Education. Springfield College is one of the top Physical Education schools in the country. Callum has taken a step above and beyond and is already practicing 2-periods at end of school day to assist Ms. Schreindorfer with Mile Creek students. In his senior year when most seniors are rearranging their schedule to get out of school early, Callum rearranged his schedule to help in the elementary physical education classes so he would get more experience. He has already seized many opportunities to teach in a physical education class. For these reasons Callum is so deserving of the Rotary Student of the month for Physical Education/ Health.
WELL DONE CALLUM!

A VERY SPECIAL THANKS TO MRS. FRIED who was the mastermind behind the whole event. Also to Ms. Macione, Mrs. Cox, Ms. Kelly, Mrs. Todd, and Mr. Kaczor for training and scoring the gameplay this evening. We could not have done any of this without all who volunteered their time and efforts. And a HUGE thanks to Mrs. Trost for running all our Zoom technology. She was the master at sending teams to their "rooms".
LOLHS' first Virtual Choir presents all three ensembles performing “Stars I Shall Find,” a beautiful song with a text by poet Sara Teasdale. This was being prepared for the March 17 District Choral Festival as well as the New Orleans competition trip that was scheduled for March 26-29.
Mrs. Pekar was able to screencast via Google Meets but... Don’t be fooled – each student you HEAR in this performance sent me their audio recording of the song; each individual recording was synced to the piano accompaniment track; and then the three videos were matched to the audio. Everyone was muted during the screencast, as it is impossible to make music in real time remotely due to latency issues. There is more to come!
AS ALWAYS... AN AMAZING PERFORMANCE !
NICE JOB WILDCATS!
These are just a few of the molecule models the kids made for this unit. They had to determine the arrangement of electrons within each molecule and then the correct shape based on that arrangement. Really creative!
Check out Mr. Fisler's modeling of a molecule:
