This annual event sponsored by the Connecticut Department of Agriculture features local farms and celebrates the diversity of fresh, local, and seasonal foods connecting farmers and producers of Connecticut Grown products to chefs and culinary professionals. A special side dish is prepared every day that comes with a meal and local apple cider, apples and maple kettle corn made in Old Lyme can be purchased as well. Check out this week's menu!
This is also a special week for our Amazing Chef Claude as this will be the last week that he will be creating special meals for us. On Wednesday, September 18, I have the honor of working with Chef Claude to celebrate this special week. We will be preparing "A Taste of Italy" Chicken Pesto over Penne Pasta.
ON Tuesday at the Portland Highlander Cross Country Invitational, Alyssa Spooner and Anne Colangelo both earned trophies. Alyssa finished the 3rd top freshman and Anne was 6th top sophomore. Honorable mentions to Harry Whitten and John Almy who finished 8th top freshman and sophomore respectably.

First days of school can bring on some "First Day" jitters. So, to help with that, we were lucky to have project paws join us during lunches on Tuesday. On Thursday, the students were excited to welcome Elway, the duck, too!
A special thanks to the Tim Buckley Project for making this happen!
Although we are only 3 days into the year, the positive energy and excitement in the halls of Lyme-Old Lyme High School is electric! On Wednesday and Thursday Jim and I welcomed back class with a short class assembly. We reviewed our Core Value and Beliefs, LOLHS Expectations and our Honor Code along with some basics. During Advisory this week, students engaged in a closer read of the handbook to ensure their understanding of some important details and reviewed our Advisory expectations. Take a look!
BE ON TIME! Students are expected to be in their classrooms by 7:40 ready to learn. The front doors lock at 7:39. If a student is arriving late to school, they are to sign in at the main office to receive a pass to go to their first period class. Please review page 17 of the handbook for further clarification.
Dress Code: Contrary to what your students may tell you, we do have a dress code at LOLHS. We take great pride in the appearance of our students and believe that student attire reflects upon the quality of our school. In an effort to create a positive learning environment, students are expected to come to school dressed in an appropriate manner. Below are the expectations found on pages 26.
