Spanish Club is meeting today in Ms. Allard's room from 2:45-3:45.                                                        

Students, if you are looking for a summer job, the City of Council Bluffs will be conducting a job fair on February 22 from 3:00 - 7:00 at the Council Bluffs Community Hall, 205 S Main Street.  This will be a job fair for seasonal employment including positions at the pools, in the parks department, at the recycling center, within public works, at the golf course, at the rec complex, and more. 
MECA, which runs the Quest Center, TD Ameritrade Park, etc., is also hosting a job fair on March 3. The informational flyer is attached.

The Lewis Central High School Department of Performing Arts is proud to announce the title for this year's musical that celebrated an incredible run on Broadway and several national tours.  A comedic and fun musical based on a popular television show will close our 2017-2018 season.  

We are excited to announce that this year's musical is ADDAMS FAMILY: A NEW MUSICAL.   THE ADDAMS FAMILY features an original story, and it’s every father’s nightmare. Wednesday Addams, the ultimate princess of darkness, has grown up and fallen in love with a sweet, smart young man from a respectable family – a man her parents have never met. 

And if that weren’t upsetting enough, Wednesday confides in her father and begs him not to tell her mother. Now, Gomez Addams must do something he’s never done before – keep a secret from his beloved wife, Morticia. Everything will change for the whole family on the fateful night they host a dinner for Wednesday’s ‘normal’ boyfriend and his parents

With fun musical numbers, exotic costumes, creative dance and a lavish set, this will be a show loved by audiences of all ages.   We need a principal cast of 10, a chorus of zombie ancestors of 10-24, an eager production team and a talented directing team.

If you love lending a hand behind the scenes or love the spotlight, this experience is for you.  Join a team with a proven Winning Tradition of Excellence.

Join a team that functions like a family and make tons of new friends while being part of a successful program.   No experience is necessary, we welcome new members to the program and you don't need to be enrolled in Drama to participate.

General meetings and auditions are next week.

Times for General meetings and auditions will be announced tomorrow.  

If you'd like more information texted or emailed to you send the message @mcgd to 81010


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.


The United States Marine Corps plans to set up by the cafeteria the first and third Wednesday of each month, while the United States Army plans 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
