December A’s and F’s

A to Coffee House

Another Coffee House success! This Coffee House featured our poet laureate, Payton Edwards, and she shared some of her best pieces. There were lots of other performances that made the coffee house great.

A to Holiday concert

The holiday concert was without a doubt one of December’s highlights. It was an amazing performance (as expected) and got the audience into the holiday spirit. It featured every chorus and, of course, the Carolers. There were some great solo performances from sophomore Evy Morrison, senior Anthony Zinno, and newcomer freshman Eli Diette making the night one to remember.

A to Carolers

Who doesn’t love the Carolers? They have been fa la la-ing across town, spreading the Christmas joy. Those who listen can’t help but smile when songs like the 12 days of Christmas are sung, and fall in love with the beautiful sound of In the First Light. Not to mention they made a special appearance on Channel 8 News. The Carolers are a performance you don’t want to miss! Luckily, we have a chance to see them tomorrow at the assembly! If you missed them this year, be sure to follow them next year on Twitter for their schedule.

A to Christmas

It’s the most wonderful time of the year and Christmas (break) is finally here! Students and staff can enjoy a well-earned break and enjoy the Christmas cookies, music, and time spent with family. Not to mention all the cheesy Hallmark movies that come out at this time. If Hallmark isn’t for you, there are all the classics that all help to make the Christmas season that much better. The journalism crew wants to wish everyone a happy holiday and a bright new year!

A to Crafternoon

The December crafternoon was a hit. Many students and teachers made their way to the art room after school to make adorable sock snowmen and reindeer. Ms. Anderson made an appearance and took part in her first and last crafternoon, snapping a picture with some of her Spanish students. Mrs. Smith showed up as well and joined in on the fun. Teachers and students left the room buzzing with holiday spirit and joy.

A to New Years Eve

New year, new me! Does that mean a new haircut? A new attitude? A new diet? New Year’s Eve is the perfect time to remember 2018 or put it behind, and start fresh.  A time to celebrate endings and new beginnings by eating lots of good food, listening to the hits of the year, or chilling in Times Square. It’s finally time to ring in the new year!

B to Toy Drive

The beginning of the toy drive was off to a slow start, but by the end of the week toys and money started flowing in. The toy drive sponsored by NHS is a great way to give back to the community and give presents to children who aren’t as fortunate. LHS is always good about giving back, and we didn’t disappoint this year!

D to Bonfire

The bonfire was a great idea, but unfortunately, not many people showed up. Maybe it was the cold weather that deterred the amount of participation. Or possibly not be able to bring anything in, but yourself? For future reference maybe have chairs around the bonfire or allow people who attend to bring them. In addition, some fun games to play or stories to tell around the fire would entice more people to come.
