The very first GirlUp LC meeting will be before school on Friday, September 29 at 7am in Room 106 (Mrs. Shannon's room). Whether you're a girl, guy, or somewhere in between, we look forward to seeing you there to chow down on donuts and plan how we can positively impact the lives of girls within our community and around the globe.

Attention Juniors:  The PSAT test will be given in the multipurpose room at LCHS on Wednesday morning, October 11.  A top score on the PSAT in your junior year is the only way to earn recognition and top scholarship offers from the National Merit Scholarship program.  Any student is welcome to sign up, but juniors in the top 25 percent of the Class of 2019 are especially encouraged to take the PSAT.  That means if you are ranked from #1 to #40 in your junior class, you should definitely sign up to take it.  Here is how to do that: 1) Bring either $16 cash or a check made out to LC for that amount to Mary in the front office, and  2) Sign up on the registration sheet and take the Student Guide with Practice Test booklet home and use it to study.  The registration deadline is Monday, October 2.  If you have questions about the PSAT, email or see Mr. Bode-Steinke in School Counseling.

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 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.


The University of Iowa will be here at 8:45 today.  UI is located in Iowa City and many of our LCHS graduates are current Hawkeyes. Almost 30,000 students attend UI, and its most popular majors are business; parks, recreation, leisure, and fitness studies; social sciences; and communication, journalism, and related programs. Mr. Duitsman is a University of Iowa graduate and would welcome questions about the university.
