Good morning, Titans!  This is an announcement to remind you a very powerful Fast Forward! event that is next month -- our annual college fair.  On Thursday, October 11, from 9:30-11:30, over 60 colleges and organizations will have representatives set up in our large gym.  They are coming to LCHS to answer YOUR questions.  Some of your teachers will bring you during class time, while others of you will need to get a pass from your teacher.  All student attendees should have a preregistration bar code either printed or on their cell phone screen.  Go here to preregister and to get your bar code: http://www.gotocollegefairs.com/.   Don't miss out on this awesome opportunity to get information from multiple colleges and organizations in a short amount of time.        

                                                                                               

Attention Juniors:  If you are ranked in the Top 50 students for your class, you should seriously consider signing up to take the PSAT that is given here at LCHS on the morning of Wednesday, October 10.  A score from your junior year PSAT is the only way to earn recognition as a National Merit Scholar, as was done by LC 2018 grad Gabe Kjeldgaard.  This recognition can lead to not only thousands of dollars from National Merit; it can also earn you full tuition at some colleges.  To sign up for the PSAT, bring a $16 registration fee to Mary Knavel in our front office.  With the payment of your registration fee, you will receive the Student Guide with Practice Test booklet.  National Merit Scholars always read the student guide and take the practice test. The PSAT registration deadline is Monday, October 1.  If you have questions about the PSAT, please see or email Mrs. Bode-Steinke.

 

Attention SENIORS:  If you are college bound after you graduate, the FAFSA is calling your name. The Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA), is a vital piece of documentation that can lead to grants, scholarships, work study opportunities and more. Don’t miss this important first step towards funding your future.  LCHS Counselors and staff certified in FAFSA Assistance will be offering their services free of charge to seniors and/or their parents on Monday, October 8, in the High School Media Center. Open hours will be from 4:30-7:30 p.m. and no appointment is necessary. Computers will even be provided for your convenience. Don’t delay, put this event on your calendar today!

 

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 pass for you when the representative arrives.

 

The University of Northern Iowa will be here at 10:00 on Monday, September 24.   UNI is a Regent university of just under 12,000 students located in Cedar Falls, Iowa, and it is the least expensive of the Regent universities.

The play is set in a group home for developmentally disabled men and women.  The four developmentally men or women live under the supervision of an earnest, but increasingly "burned out" young social worker.

 

We meet Norman, who works in a doughnut shop and is unable to resist the lure of the sweet pastries, takes great pride in the huge bundle of keys that dangles from his waist; there's Lucien P. Smith who has the mind of a five-year-old but imagines that he is able to read and comprehend the weighty books he lugs about; we meet Arnold, the ringleader of the group, is a hyperactive, compulsive chatterer, who suffers from deep-seated insecurities and a persecution complex; and there's  Barry, a brilliant schizophrenic who is devastated by the unfeeling rejection of his brutal father, fantasizes that he is a golf pro. 

 

Mingled with scenes from the daily lives of these four, where "little things" sometimes become momentous (and often very funny), are moments of great poignancy when, with touching effectiveness, we are reminded that the handicapped, like the rest of us, want only to love and laugh and find some meaning and purpose in the brief time that they, like their more fortunate brothers, are allotted on this earth.
