Science… the study of life!
Take a look at what Mrs. Walter's Biology class is doing for their Ecology Unit… It's all about keeping it green!
In Mrs. Walter's Biology class, at the beginning of the year, students planned and planted a little garden behind her classroom. They researched native plants, dug up the soil - not an easy task , raked in organic compost, installed a fence and then planted the plants - all in two days! This is part of their ecology unit which is what they start the year with - plus it looks great!
LOLHS Tech Help!
Andy Raucci and Catherine DiMella have been working tirelessly to create an IT Tech Help Desk to service the students and staff of LOLHS. With the 1:1 initiative, there is clearly a need! Currently, they have 11 students receiving credit as an Independent Study in Technology Support . The students are helping with repairs and questions of all kinds. There are students of varying abilities, they are all eager to learn and to support students and staff. Soon, they will be able to dive in with web design, creating tutorials, and studying some of our software in depth.
The new team looks forward to the delivery of a new help desk! The temporary desk is set up in the library and is currently staffed with students periods 1, 3, 4, 5, 6 and 8. Their goal is to either fix the issue, or issue a “spare” within 5 minutes whenever possible so that missed class time is kept to a minimum.
So, if your son or daughter comes home with a technology issue and does not know where to go… , please be sure to send them to our new IT Tech Help Desk!

Student Representatives in Hartford
Connecticut Voice: a legislative initiative for students across the State of Connecticut
Kudos to two of our LOLHS students who participated in CTVoice: a 60+ member student group selected by their teachers and schools to give them a VOICE in the legislature. Both students participated in the kick-off meeting at the Capitol in Hartford on September 14. Students were addressed by Governor Malloy and other dignitaries. The day was launched with activities educating members about literacy rates and the action that students can take to help close the achievement gap in Connecticut. Students were given a tour of the Capitol and worked together to start creating legislation to propose next January.
