Wish List – We’ve asked teachers to provide a list of items they know would help students and enhance our programs. There were no limitations, so some of these are small, others are quite large. We’ll continue to grow this list and simply ask you to consider providing something if possible. Before the list even got posted, word went out about the desire to replace the digital camera and lenses used by the Publications class and this has already been purchased!
Thank you in advance for anything you can provide. Access the Wish List here.
After School Pickup – Students should be picked up as promptly as possible once the school day ends. We understand many students are involved in activities and others stay to work quietly in the media center or receive help from a teacher. By 5 or 5:30, all students should be picked up – they’ve had a long day by that point! Thanks for your cooperation.
Over the last two weeks students in Future Business Leaders of America have been promoting their first event in the LN Battle of the Classes. Throughout the school year FBLA will promote/sponsor a variety of events meant to bring about fun competition among the classes and faculty. Rewards like dress down days and bragging rights are the motivation for students and faculty.
The first event was called Penny Wars where the premise was to collect spare change at lunches. This event was not only a competition, but also a fundraiser for the new Robotics Club. Any change collected in the respective jars counted positively towards class totals, and any bills subtracted from those totals. (Anyone could deposit money in any of the containers.) After just ONE week of collecting change and some occasional small bills, the LN student body and faculty had collected over $400! With the faculty competing, the students really had to band together to make sure they did not win. The lead changed almost every day between sophomores, seniors, and the faculty. The faculty took the lead into the final day (last Friday), but after third lunch, (even with $50 in bills against) the Seniors prevailed as victors by netting $94 in change! Over the course of TWO weeks, students and faculty donated more than $900 in change and small bills! Wow, great job Crusader Nation!
Faith in Action Day –
Permission Form Needed
Friday, Oct. 21 will be Faith in Action Day for all Crusaders. The entire school will venture into the community to serve God by serving their fellowman. Attendance is required, as it is counted as a regular school day. Dismissal will be at 12:00 noon. Students should be sure to dess appropriately for whatever tasks they’ll be doing. No cafeteria lunch will be served, but pizza slices and Gatorade will be available for purchase at $1.50 each.

Flu Shot Clinic at LHSN
Flu shots for the seasonal flu will be offered by Walgreens at LHSN on Tuesday, Oct. 25 from 1:00-4:00 p.m. in the Health Room. Flu shots will be available to all students, family members, faculty, and staff over the age of 12 years. A parental consent form must be completed for ages 12-17.
Please sign up for a flu shot in the main office and pick up a consent form by Friday, Oct. 21. This will allow us to give Walgreens the number of flu shots needed for our school. The consent form must be completed, including the insurance information, or bring your insurance card with you, when the shot is received.
Walgreens will submit the insurance information. Walgreens will have a limited supply of vouchers that will cover any cost of the shot that is not covered by the insurance or if you do not have insurance. If you have any questions, please contact the school nurse.

Calling all Moms and Grandmoms! Join us Saturday, Oct. 15, at 9:00 am in room 102. LHSN’s Social Worker, Ms. Michelle Marshall, will be sharing information about dealing with the stress/anxiety of high school students and high school parents.
A breakfast snack will be served; feel free to bring your favorite morning beverage. Also, this will be the last monthly meeting until January, so all Crusader moms can focus on their families’ busy schedules and the holidays.
