Peer Counselors to Sell Candy Cane Grams
This year the LHS peer counselors are working on a school-wide project with the goal of spreading warm wishes during the holiday season. They will kick off their event after the Thanksgiving break by visiting classrooms with a gift of appreciation for each of our LHS staff members. During the weeks before the winter break, staff and students will be invited to also spread warm wishes to others by sending candy canes with personal handwritten messages that will be delivered to the sender's chosen recipients. Those wishing to send a candy cane message can visit the peer counseling office in the back of the LHS counseling office, or stop by their table at lunch in the cafeteria.
