Friday, January 15th, was Elizabeth's last day at LOLHS. She boarded a flight on Saturday to return home to Germany. Elizabeth has been an exchange student with us for this past semester hosted by Alexis Fenton and her family through an international student exchange program, FLAG.
Elizabeth shared that while she is excited to go home to see her family, she is sad to leave. She has really treasured her stay with Alexis and at LOLHS. She participated in soccer this fall, a sport she had never played before but thoroughly enjoyed meeting new people and being part of the team with Alexis. Academically, Elizabeth shared that in Germany, everyone said that American schools were easy. However, she did not find that at LOLHS- she was pleasantly challenged. She participated in a full schedule of classes including Civics, French II, Algebra II, Environmental Science, Intro to Psychology, Symphonic Band and English, excelling in each.
She will be returning to her hometown, unable to see friends or go to school, as they are on lockdown at the moment. Her school is completely remote and does not have the same level of technological support so learning will be asynchronous and mostly done on hard copies.
As much as we are sorry to see Elizabeth leave our Wildcat family, she is equally saddened. She expressed that she was feeling just at the point of feeling "normal" with the language and routines and now has to leave. While she was unable to see much of the US touring due to the covid restrictions, she looks forward to returning sometime soon to meet up with her newfound family, visit LOLHS once again, and see the sights in person!
