Lawrence High School Campus Events

LHS staff posing with World Series Trophies

Three of the Red Sox World Series Trophies visited the Lawrence High School Campus on Friday, December 21. They were brought by Wally and Tessie to give people in the city a chance to see the trophies up close for a photo op. Everyone was invited to bring an unwrapped gift to donate to the Toy Drive for children in the three communities effected by the gas explosions. Click here for some photos. You have a chance to participate until 4pm. Don't miss it!

I am Ms. Pokrovski, the new LHS Library Media Specialist. I wanted to help create a collection that would get more students reading. The selection is meant to get even the student who says "Ms. I don't read", reading more, because, following that statement, is the one book that he or she did love, but couldn't find/didn't have access to more like it. Everyone is a reader, my job is to find what's current and popular with teens, so they decide to read the one, two, or ten extra books over the course of the year.There are students, who were readers in middle school, but stopped, because the series they were reading wasn't available or complete here: "Ms. I was at the third book in Harry Potter, or The Percy Jackson series, or Maze Runner". It's my job to have books and series books that help students transition from middle school to high school. It's also important to have engaging reads that hit topics teens care about and can relate to at all reading levels, so all our students can be readers. 

I want students to know they can come to check books out before school from 7:30-8:00am Monday-Friday, after school on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:45-3:30, during their lunch, or with a pass to the library from their teacher. If i am at lunch, teaching classes, or at a meeting, they should leave the book, and come back to check it out with me.  

We have a ton of digital resources such as online databases, ebooks, and other technology tools, but print resources still matter. Many of our students do not have access to devices at home besides a cell phone, which can have an inadequate screen and interface for reading comfortably, and websites can often prove unreliable. Having a balance of both, and access to both is essential. LHS has really supported my efforts this year, as I have been able to bring 700+ new titles and copies to the school. Come, bring your students, and enjoy books!

Junior Achievement Company Program will be offered at NECC on Wednesdays, 3:30 - 5:30 from January 9th - May 1st

The JA Company Program is the founding program for Junior Achievement that allows students to create, operate and liquidate their own startup venture in just 13 weeks!  Students will create a real product that they will bring to market and raise real capital.  Students learn about all aspects of running their own business including sales, marketing, finance, collaboration, creativity, public speaking, leadership development and much more. 

The JA Company Program will be co-led by corporate volunteers of various professional backgrounds who will teach a series of workshops at our host sites as directed from the Junior Achievement Learning Platform.  This program culminates with students participating in our student company competition, the JA Student Leadership Summit, hosted by Babson College.  Students from across the region will pitch their product and present their company to a panel of judges in hopes to be named JA of Northern New England Company of the Year. 

Not only will students have a wonderful learning experience by participating in this program but also have access to scholarships, networking opportunities and the potential to participate in our National Student Leadership Summit in Washington DC in June 2019! 

This program, as well as all other Junior Achievement programs, comes at NO COST to students.  Get in touch with JA to participate.

JROTC Battalion wearing running gear before 4 miler

The Lancer Battalion JROTC 5K No Slacker running team took to the streets of Lawrence in support of the Lawrence Vietnam Memorial 4 miler. Five cadets supported the event that was held on October 28, 2018 by performing a Color Guard for this event, and approximately 15 cadets ran the race. The Lancer Battalion has been supporting this event for the last 15 years and it has become the start of our 5K No Slacker running season. The cadets were well received by all of the people who attended and represented our High School in a very professional manner.
