Heroin and Opioid Awareness Event in Old Lyme on December 6th.
Opioid addiction knows no boundaries. The U.S. Attorney’s Heroin Education Action Team (HEAT) will give a community presentation at Lyme Old Lyme High School on Thursday, December 6th at 7:00 p.m. with an in depth look at the opioid crisis and how it is affecting families from communities just like our own. This presentation will also be given to students in grades 9-12 on December 4 during an all-school assembly.
The program includes a showing of the film “Chasing the Dragon: The Life of an Opiate Addict,” a powerful documentary created by the FBI and DEA to educate students and parents about the dangers of addiction. The movie will be followed by a panel discussion with a federal prosecutor, a DEA agent, and community members’ whose lives have been impacted by the opioid crisis.
The mission of the U.S. Attorney’s Heroin Education Action Team (USA HEAT) is to stop the spread of the opioid abuse epidemic in Connecticut by increasing community understanding of the dangers associated with these drugs. USA HEAT is a partnership between the United States Attorney’s Office for the District of Connecticut and families who have lost a loved one to an overdose. These courageous moms, dads, brothers, sisters, and children share their stories in order to educate others about the warning signs and dangers associated with opioid use and abuse. By doing so, they hope to help others avoid the pain they have suffered.
Oxycodone, heroin, fentanyl, and other opioids have become widely and easily available in Connecticut. As a result, we have seen a significant increase in the number of young adults who use and abuse opioids, often with deadly consequences. The scourge of opioids is not limited to any particular locality, socioeconomic group, race, or gender. Rather, there have been overdoses and overdose deaths in every county in Connecticut; New London County – and the town of Old Lyme – are no exception.
USA HEAT seeks to inform our communities of what we are up against, and what we can do to fight back. Our team members deliver a compelling message based on the tragedy that they have experienced first-hand with the goal of implementing a coordinated, effective response to this growing threat.
The program is sponsored by Lymes’ Youth Service Bureau, Lyme-Old Lyme Prevention Coalition, and Lyme Old Lyme Schools and is free and open to the public. For more information contact LYSB at 860-434-7208 or www.lysb.org.
DATE: Thursday, December 6, 2018, 7:00 p.m.
LOCATION: Lyme-Old Lyme High School, 69 Lyme Street, Old Lyme, CT 06371
FREE AND OPEN TO THE PUBLIC

Congratulations to Hannah Morrison for being selected by the Math Department as the Rotary Student of the Month for her excellence in Mathematics. She was recognized this past week along with students from Westbrook and Old Saybrook. Mrs. O'Leary and Mrs. Leen both recognized and celebrated Hannah's accomplishments in and out of the classroom. Hannah goes above and beyond when it comes to Mathematics. She was instrumental in developing and implementing what is now known as our own LOLHS MAC (Math Academic Center) Lab where students are able to access math help from their peers during any period of the day as well as before and after school. This has been a wonderful addition to our LOLHS academic community.
Well Done Hannah!
Monday, November 12, proved to be, yet again, a wonderful demonstration of LOLHS' gratitude and honor for our local Veterans. Our Wildcat Band and Chorus performed with heart and soul that stole the show. Commander Glenn Elliott was selected as this year's guest speaker to honor not only his 20 years of service to our country in the Navy, but also for the 20 years that he has devoted to the Lyme-Old Lyme community. Connor Wyman received the Voice of Democracy Award and was recognized by the local VFW. He gave his thoughtful, award-winning speech to the audience: "Why my voice matters".
Thanks to Mr. Wilson, you are able to access a recording of the assembly, music, speeches and all via the link below!... ENJOY!

The Lyme Old Lyme Schools are considering an expansion of our current Pre-K program to allow all age eligible students in the towns of Lyme and Old Lyme to attend. In an effort to prepare all of our students for Kindergarten, our tentative plan is to expand our Pre-K offerings to all students in Lyme and Old Lyme and establish a universal Pre-K program based on Connecticut’s Early Learning and Developmental Standards. We also hope to entice non-residents to move to our district, or enroll their students on a tuition basis, to enjoy this added benefit. This tentative plan would begin in the 2019-2020 school year. To assist in the planning process, we are asking for your input. If you have a child that will be three or four years old by September 1, 2019, and are interested in your child being considered for this program, please complete the following survey before November 15, 2018. Survey results will be used in both our planning process as well as in securing spots in this exciting new program. The survey can be found on our website at http://www.region18.org/page.cfm?p=2207.
A team of Lyme-Old Lyme High School students and faculty joined eight other teams from schools in the region to share, discuss and brainstorm ways to improve our programming in "Getting Life Ready!" The objectives for the day included:
The Old Lyme Players' production this weekend of Midsummer Jersey was fantastic! The performances were outstanding and absolutely hilarious. Bringing Shakespeare's Midsummer's Night Dream to New Jersey is not an easy feat... however, Old Lyme's Players did it effortlessly.
Well done Old Lyme Players!
Congratulations to all who made this play a true success.
Molympics is friendly competition between HS chemistry students that emphasizes the use of “the mole”, a chemistry variable used to compare molecules to each other. This competition started between a few chemistry teachers spread out throughout the country as a way to celebrate chemistry in a fun way. It is celebrated on October 23 each year, in collaboration with National Chemistry week, since one mole= 6.02 x 1023 particles.
Molympics is set up with 5 events that focus on different aspects of the mole using physical tasks, lab skills and through calculations. Each team is measured on accuracy, speed and clear calculations in each event. This year’s events included calculating the time it would take to make 1 mole of tally marks, squeezing out 1 mole of water from a sponge, estimating the mass of one mole of a metal, building a tower of rubber stoppers as high as possible then calculating the height of one mole of rubber stoppers and a relay race of 6 sit-ups, 2 sidesteps, 10 pushups and 23 jumping jacks.
Out of 109 schools that participated around the world, LOLHS finished in 4th place in our first appearance at Molympics!
Great job Wildcats!
