Parents and Guardians,  
 
August is officially here and the start of school is right around the corner. It seems like summer just began, but the first day of school is only three weeks away. Below I have included important dates and events that are quickly approaching to help make sure you have them on your calendar. Please take some time to read through the information below, and let us know if you have any questions.
 
Sincerely,
 
Chris Mayfield
Principal
Lovejoy High School


NOTE:
In an effort to be as efficient as possible, we prioritize our parent email as follows:
* New or time-sensitive topics of interest are at the top of the list
* Followed by the Calendar of Events and Activities
* Older items appear below the calendar until they become obsolete

School Supplies
Compiling a list of common items needed for Lovejoy High School is a bit difficult considering the diversity of classes that a typical student can take. Knowing that many of you may want to shop for school supplies before you receive the complete list from teachers on the 1st day of school, we invite you to click SUPPLIES to consult a spreadsheet that details what items are needed for each department. Please note that there are 5 tabs, one for each of the core subjects: English, Math, Science, Social Studies, and LOTE.
