Hello Tiger Families,

I hope you all had a great weekend and were able to find some time to be in the sunshine on Saturday.  Our student athletes again had a good weekend with our track team competing well in Casper, while the soccer teams were on the road in Star Valley.  A big congratulations to all of our students competing at the Wyoming Track and Field Classic. In the select all-class track meet where just the invite to compete is an honor, our athletes represented us very well.  Freshmen Madi Chance won the girls 100 meter, took 3rd in the 100 meter hurdles and 7th in the 300 meter hurdles. Sophomore Leah Brown finished 8th in the 100 meter hurdles. Senior Conner Lebeau set the school record with a 37-10” shot put toss which earned her a third place finish.  Freshmen Jessica White earned a 7th place finish in the 3200 meter while Freshmen Kaleb Simonson took 5th on the boys side of the 3200. Senior Vaulters Bridger Kimber and Nathan Motherway placed 3rd and 4th respectively. Junior Conrad Swenson placed 2nd in the 300 meter hurdles and 8th in the 110 meter hurdles.  A special thanks to their coaches for all of the work they have put into this successful season!

Monday night we will have the distinct pleasure of inducting the next class of National Honor Society members into our local chapter.  Invitations were mailed earlier to all parents of inductees and I can’t wait to see these students in this prestigious ceremony.

Parents please do not forget that their is the district-wide PIE meeting Monday night at 7pm at Central Office.  Due to a big agenda we will not be having building breakouts at the end of this meeting. I will still be hosting our monthly PIE meeting on Tuesday at 12pm in the LVHS Popo Agie Room.  This will be the last meeting of the 2017-18 school year.

LVHS will host the annual Shane Brock Invitational Track meet on Saturday.  As part of this event our students will be hosting a bbq starting at 11am with all proceeds going to our attendance secretary Kim Nations who recently began her fight against cancer.  If you want to see some awesome young men and women in action, support a good cause and see some incredible track athletes, well then I will see you on Saturday! Soccer will be on the road in Newcastle.  

Don’t forget that Advanced Placement Exams start next week for all AP classes.  If your student meets our expectations for testing and is all done with their course requirements you will be allowed to sign them out for the rest of the semester from that class.  A form will be sent home with students who qualify and it will need a parent signature. If you would rather them stay at school during this period that is fine, simply do not sign the form.   Here is the testing schedule, please don’t hesitate to let me know if you have any questions.

  • May 7 — Span Lit 12th Grade
  • May 8 — Span Lang 11th Grade
  • May 9 — English Lit 12th Grade
  • May 10 — Environmental Sci.

Senior parents please do not forget to make plans to attend the senior breakfast on Wednesday, May 16th with breakfast being served at 7am and awards starting promptly at 7:30am. This is for students and their guests.  At 11 am we will host a student bbq at City Park, and will then have our mandatory graduation practice at 1pm. Students not going to state soccer or state track will be encouraged to meet at Gannett Peak at 2:15pm on Thursday, May 17th with their caps and gown to participate in the Graduation March.  Last year was our first year doing this and it was an incredible hit for both our elementary students and graduates!
