Every year the LOLHS National Honor Society sponsors a Toy Drive to help support our community during the holiday season. This year, we are promoting and encouraging that every homeroom group help support this effort by selecting a berry from the giving wreath to purchase a gift or by donating $1.00 to put toward a gift card that will go to the same cause. Berries on the wreath are suggestions and represent only a portion of all the people in our area in need.
Gift or card... all will be greatly appreciated and are needed! I am hoping that we will have 100% participation from our homerooms... and based on our amazing Wildcat pride and spirit, I am confident we will achieve the goal!
WE CAN DO THIS LOLHS!
Congratulations to Sam Fuchs and Sarah Kwon for being named 2018 National Merit Scholarship Semifinalists.
It is an honor to recognize both Sarah and Sam for their academic achievement. They represent less than one percent of U.S. high school seniors who have been named 2018 National Merit Scholar Semifinalists. Semifinalists are designated on a state-representational basis. The number of Semifinalists named in each state is proportional to the state's percentage of the national total of graduating high school seniors. Juniors enter the National Merit Scholarship Program by taking the PSAT/NMSQT (Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test). The PSAT is administered yearly by LOLHS to all 9th, 10th and 11th graders and serves as an initial screen of program entrants.
WELL DONE SAM AND SARAH!

Warren Miller's Film: Line of Descent... Thursday Night!
The Student Advisory Council (SAC) sponsored a Thanksgiving Day Luncheon for the entire High School faculty and staff on Monday, November 20. This idea was spearheaded and organized by a subgroup of SAC who planned, organized and prepared the delicious meal to simply say "THANK YOU" to all of the people who help and support them on a daily basis. For decorations, students wrote 'thank you' notes on strips of orange paper and created pumpkins with these notes as table center pieces. It was a wonderful and yummy way to kick off the season...
THANK YOU EMILY BALOCCA, BRYNN MCGLINCHEY, JADA FUENTES AND SARAH HAYWARD!

National Honor Society helped our community by encouraging the entire school to bring in canned goods all week long. On Friday morning before school, students boxed up and transported the all the goods that were collected during the week to LYSB. This was probably one of the best food drives that we have every delivered.
Nice work NHS!
The Valley/Old Lyme Football Team beat Haddam Killingworth on Friday night and won the Principal’s Cup , the Pequot League Sacassus Division Title, and now go on to the CIAC Class S playoffs. It was their 6th straight win of this highly valued Cup. The JV team played their hearts out as well on Saturday to beat the Haddam JV the next morning, which was a quite contentious game! They played their hearts out.
Well done Warriors and good luck at the playoffs!

The Old Lyme Players' performance this weekend of Radium Girls was outstanding! From the costumes, set design and construction, directing, acting and behind the scene work... every detail of this production was seemingly calculated and purposeful and met with great success! This was a wonderful production of a relatively depressing story. It is a play based on a true story about women factory workers in the late 1920s who contracted radiation poisoning from painting watch dials with self-luminous paint.
Well done Old Lyme Players!
Congratulations to all who made this play a true success.
