The Student Advisory Council (SAC) sponsored a Thanksgiving Day Luncheon for the entire High School faculty and staff on Monday, November 25. The students 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 spread them out for them to send their message home. It was a wonderful and yummy way to kick off the season...and prep for Thanksgiving!

The 2019 Latin Film Festival was a successful event run by the LOLHS Spanish Honors Society. The members collaborated to put together a number of short films for Region 18 students to enjoy. Volunteers took shifts during lunch waves at both the middle school and high school to collect donations for hurricane relief and to facilitate the event. At the end of the two days over $200 was raised to donate to a great cause. We hope that next year we will be able to raise even more! Thank you to all the staff and students who attended and supported our club!

The LOHS Trivia Bowl Team came out strong in the first match of the year, beating North Branford 270 to 10! Competing members were Billy Barry, Jack Conley, Rachael Larson, Will Larson, Ryan McTigue, and Avery Wyman. The team lost to HK in the second match but overall had a strong performance.
Great Job Wildcats!
Physics students in Mr. Fisler's class demonstrate how an increase in collision time will decrease the force on an object (like air bags in a car or when you bend your knees when you jump down off a chair) using EGGS! Students engineered devices with an egg. These devices were were dropped from the catwalk, and then from the roof if they survived. Those that survived the roof drop were ranked according to certain design parameters. Devices received more points if they were small, lightweight, and if they fell quickly. The best performing device was awarded to Mariame Biuma, whose device received 211 quality points. Second place was awarded to Sean Sagristano and Tim O’Brien with 204 quality points.
Well Done Wildcats!
At Monday's faculty meeting, student representatives from Spectrum facilitated a workshop for the entire faculty. Students led small group discussions sharing situations, challenges and possible responses in order to help teachers better advocate and support all students. It was an incredibly valuable and inspiring workshop.

Congratulations to Ryan McTigue for being selected by the Math Department as the Rotary Student of the Month for his excellence in Mathematics. He was recognized this past week along with students from Westbrook and Old Saybrook. Mrs. Leen recognized and celebrated Ryan's accomplishments in and out of the classroom. Ryan goes above and beyond. He helps any student in the class or as a tutor in the MAC Center and his passion for Math has led him to furthering his learning by challenging himself by taking advanced mathematics classes independently.
Monday, November 11, 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. Mr. Paul Ahnell, was invited by his granddaughter, Samantha Geshel, as this year's guest speaker. He shared eight life-long lessons that he learned during his years of service. Kate Cheney received the Voice of Democracy Award and was recognized by the local VFW. She gave her thoughtful, award-winning speech to the audience addressing What Makes America Great. And, Jacqueline Malizia started the assembly with her opening remarks about the importance of remembering our Veterans collectively. It was a beautiful ceremony for our Vererans - the heroes who have unselfishly dedicated their lives fighting to provide us with the freedoms we hold near and dear as American Citizens.
