The library will be closed today due to testing.  If you have a book to return, put it on the cart outside the library.                                                                                                                                                    

Members of Lewis Central's Chapter of the  International Thespian Society will meet again tomorrow after school to work on next week's Banquet and Thespian Initiation.  Applications for Thespian Society are due today by the end of the day in McG's Room.  Next year will be an even more important year for Thespians and LC will increase its involvement at the state level.  Please submit your points sheets so that you can be honored for your Outstanding work throughout the state, the national and literally the world.  Great job to everyone who helped get things done in yesterday's work day.

Great job ladies!


Lewis Central is looking for students who are interested in careers involving social media, digital marketing and/or graphic design to help create original content to highlight various activities and post them to the District’s social media profiles. This is a great opportunity to build a portfolio and share to an engaged and established audience. You choose the mediums you want to use and the activities you want to help promote! This opportunity is separate from the already-offered internship and journalism courses and work is done on your own time. If you’re interested in learning more, check your email for one sent this morning from Josh Allen with the subject "Social Media Internship Opportunity."



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

All JUNIORS should have already visited with at least one college, military, or trade school recruiter.  SOPHOMORES, you should also start paying more attention to the Fast Forward! College, Trade School, and Military Visit announcements, with the goal of talking with at least one recruiter yet this year and several next year.  Talking with recruiters who visit our school is a great way to start comparing your options.


Email Renee, our Registrar, if you want her to send a call slip when the following recruiters visit our School Counseling Office: rkybat@lewiscentral.org:
