LVHS Principal blog post 09-17: Homecoming and Celebrations!
Hello Tiger Fans,
It is with great excitement that I inform you that both our boys and girls teams won the state championship golf title this past weekend in Douglas. Freshman Jaren Calkins also won the individual championship in the boys division. Congrats to both teams and their coach Mike Watson on a great season and spectacular finish. Congrats to the Cross Country team with the girls winning the Lander Invite and the boys finishing second last Thursday. In a rainy game, the Football team was able to capture their first win of the season over Thermopolis adding an exclamation point to an exciting homecoming week.
Last Wednesday we had our first Student Celebration of the year and we recognized the nearly 30 students who earned a score of "3" or better on their Advanced Placement test last spring. That does not include the many graduates who also earned such a score. We also paid special tribute to our two AP Scholars Mac Mann-Wood and Jalynne Brough who both were named Scholars by the College Board after earning a score of "3" or better on three or more exams! Richard Ellis was also recently notified by the National Merit Scholarship Corporation that he has earned Semi-Finalist status for his exceptional academic performance and potential for success in rigorous college studies. He now begins the process to qualify as a finalist which will be named this February.
Parents please do not forget that the District will be hosting a district-wide PIE meeting on Monday night (9-18) at Central Office beginning at 6pm which will conclude with breakouts for all the individual schools.
On Tuesday, LVHS will host Anthony Muhammad who will work with each department as we continue to improve our Professional Learning Community (PLC). Muhammad is one of the leading educational consultants in the United States and has already impacted much of our work as we make changes to ensure high level of learning for all students. At the end of September, ten teachers from LVHS and over 40 staff members from the entire district will travel to Salt Lake to join Muhammad and many other educational consultants at another Solution Tree Professional Learning Community Institute. We are very lucky to have this kind of professional development and we are excited to continue to improve our systen to better serve all students.
I hope that you all have a great week,
Brad Neuendorf, LVHS Principal
