LEHS Information Letter
3/28/22

 

 

Dear LEHS Community, 

I recently sent the following message to our staff related to our brain and what we allow our mind to focus on throughout our day.  During the fourth nine weeks we must remain focused on the task at hand and pushing our students every day that we have with them.  

What are you fixated on? Our brain is amazing, it has the ability to filter out billions of pieces of information allowing us to focus on one or two specific things.  This is a good thing, but in recent times it has become a negative.  

The simple fact is, whatever it may be that you are fixated on becomes your reality.  If you are fixated on all of the negative things around you that is all you see, the negative.  It is also very easy for the fixations of those around us to shift our focus and can easily change our outlook on life and the world around us.  We constantly tell our kids to not let those around them dictate their mood and how their day is going, yet we are guilty of the exact same thing at times.

I have preached for many years to set a focus for your classroom and set specific goals and expectations for your kids.  Try doing this for yourself.  Establish right now what you are going to concentrate on today, for each classroom, or for individual students.  Good always wins in the end!

Sincerely,
Nate Smith

 

Scheduling

The scheduling process should be completed at this point.  If you have not had conversations with your child about their plans for next year, please contact the counselor's office.  Parents will be able to view the Academic Planner for their child through Infinite Campus.  The Academic Planner outlines the students’ plan for all four years of high school.  
 

Final nine weeks

The final nine weeks of the school year begins Monday.  The fourth nine weeks of school is a very busy time of the year for every school, especially a high school.  Please pay special attention to your child’s grades during this quarter, along with their final exams.  Final grades are calculated based on the following chart.
