TICKETS ARE NOW ON SALE for the Drama Department's fall comedy DON'T DRINK THE WATER by Woody Allen.  Imagine being on vacation in a foreign land and innocently taking pictures.  Now imagine that members of the communist police see you taking photos and thinking that you're a spy.  Imagine running for your lives to the U.S. Embassy and having the police follow you.  All of this creates a hysterical situation when three Americans--a caterer, his lovely wife and his innocent daughter--are forced to hide in the United State embassy.  Buy your ticket early and save money.  Tickets are $6.00 in advance for students and $8.00 at the door and $8.00 in advance for adults and $10.00 at the door.  Join us in celebrating the comic talent of our cast, our wonderfully talented set crew, our awesome and dedicated directing team.  Get your ticket today with members of the DDTW team and in the LC Principal's office.  

All you writers out there it’s time to showcase your poetry or short story in Lewis Central’s literary magazine, “The Mighty Pen.”  This will be your ONLY opportunity to be published this year so please submit your work electronically to Mrs. Nielsen at lnielsen@lewiscentral.org by Thursday, October 24th until noon.   This includes you too, teachers.  So don’t wait.  Become a published writer today!                                                                                        

Here is the information about COLLEGE VISITS from our Student Handbook:  

College Visits

Students are encouraged to visit college campuses on weekends or school holidays. However, if that cannot be arranged, students may be allowed to visit college campuses with pre-arranged permission of the school counselor AND a note signed by the student's parents. College visits cleared by parents in this manner are excused absences.

That means students must bring their school counselor a note from their parents that includes the name of the college and the date visiting at least 24 hours before the college visit.                                               

The following colleges will have representatives in our School Counseling office.  If you want to meet with a college representative, simply email Renee at rkybat@lewiscentral.org, and she will send a call slip for you when the representative arrives.

 Wayue State College will be here at 10:30 on Tuesday, October 24.  Wayne State is located in Wayne, Nebraska, a 2-hour drive from Council Bluffs. It has about 3,500 students and is priced very reasonably for Iowa students; in fact, a large number of on-campus students are Iowa high school graduates. Its most popular majors are education, business, psychology, criminal justice, and recreation, leisure and fitness studies. Mrs. Woodward, Mrs. Bode-Steinke, Mr. Nickman, and Mr. Archer are all Wayne State grads. Ask them about their Wildcat pride. 

The United States Marine Corps plans to set up by the cafeteria the first and third Wednesday of each month, while the United States Armyplans to set up on the second and fourth Thursday of each month.  If you are interested in a Fast Forward! graduation plan of entering the military, you should take the time to introduce yourself and talk with these recruiters.

Seniors, these Fast Forward! Scholarship Opportunities are also available on our School Counseling Department webpages:  http://tinyurl.com/y8yxrt95
