Do your parents, teachers, or friends tell you that you talk too much? Do you want to participate in an activity without taking up too much of your time? Want to be successful and have fun while doing it? Then how about joining large group or individual speech! Don’t like talking in front of crowds? You’re never alone in these fun and highly successful groups. Have you heard that LC was named the top school in the state for Radio Broadcasting last year? Come to the meeting to see what we are all about today from 3 to 3:40. Can’t make it? See Mrs. West in room 310 for details on how to get involved.                                                                                 

 

Please come and look at the table outside of the counseling office if you have lost an item.  

Today the "Lost and Found" table becomes the "Take What You Want" table.

                        Students - home activities have started.  The following reminder.

  It is important that all students keep in mind that expectations for behavior at events is no different than at school - BE A TITAN!!! In order for good sportsmanship to be a Titan staple, all students must contribute to an enjoyable and respectful environment.  We expect all students to enthusiastically support the Titans while at the same time respecting our opponents. Titan Nation WILL BE a place where students attend sporting events and extra curricular activities to express pride in BEING A TITAN!!!

Some things to remember at activities:

  • Sit in the appropriate area designated for students 
  • Students should stay seated in the bleacher area unless using the restrooms or concessions - no loitering around the complex
  • Stand, remove your cap and be quiet during the National Anthem
  • No profanity at any time from the stands
  • No artificial noisemakers, confetti, flower (or other powders), lasers or sign/banners 
  • No masks, bodysuits, etc. that hide a person’s identity.School dress code applies to all activities
