Juniors Madeline Sanders and Benjamin Nopper both placed first nationally in the categories of  news feature and  personal opinion: on-campus issues , respectively.
 
2018 graduates Nicole Genrich and Emma Overholt both placed second nationally for  personal opinion: off-campus issues  and  interactive graphic , respectively, while 2018 grad Bradley Davis combined with senior Haidyn McKenzie to place first for  video feature package . 2018 grad Hannah Ortega placed third nationally in  sports feature .

Academic Calendars for 2019-2020 and 2020-2021
The LISD School Board recently approved the academic calendars for the 2 upcoming school years. You may click here to access them.

Lovejoy Esports Club
The growing popularity of E sports, competitive video gaming , is definitely on the rise, and there is local evidence of that with  the arrival of  our  very own Lovejoy Esports team. The LHS Esports Club was started by sophomore Lauryn Watanabe  this  school year with multiple teams in different games, including Hearthstone, Overwatch, and Rainbow Six Siege. They currently compete with other high school teams in the Hig h School Esports League (HSEL).  The Lovejoy Esports team finished their first season by just narrowly missing the playoffs with a top  10  finish in Overwatch and Hearthstone.  The Winter Season just finished ,  and a Hearthstone team qualified for the national playoffs.  As E sports continues to gain mainstream momentum, the team has its sights on continuing its expansion.  If you are also interested in  joining the team please  email  watanabe_lauryn@lovejoyisd.com  for more information.

Lovejoy Offers Group Counseling
Lovejoy is offering group counseling for students for a variety of areas. The groups will meet weekly, during school hours, and will be facilitated by Lovejoy's Social Worker, Noelle Gove, LCSW. The overall goal of the counseling groups is to address student's social/emotional needs that may be impacting their experience and success at school. Groups are being offered, based on need, to every campus in the district, grades K-12.
 
If you are interested in your student participating in a group, please click here to complete the interest form. Noelle Gove will be in contact with parents regarding further details of the group and to obtain consent for student participation.

Lovejoy Mom Selected for 2019 Boston Marathon
Lovejoy mom, Tracy Sutherlin, is asking for your help in raising money to support the Leukemia Lymphoma Society Team in Training.
 
"Hi Friends, this is Tracy Sutherlin. I know you've seen me running the streets of Allen, Fairview and Lucas for many years and you know that running is my passion. I'm super excited to announce that I've been selected to be the North Texas Leukemia Lymphoma Society (LLS) Team In Training Representative at the 2019 Boston Marathon. Not only do I get to fulfill a lifelong dream of running the Boston Marathon, I get to do it for a purpose!
 
Every 3 minutes someone is diagnosed with a blood cancer and every 9 minutes someone dies from one. More than 1.3 million people are living with, or are in remission from Leukemia, Lymphoma & Myeloma. Sadly, more than 1/3 of blood cancer patients do not survive 5 years after diagnosis. LLS fund's research provides patients guidance, education & support. LLS also drives advocacy for policies that protect patients access to life saving treatments.
 
I am running to honor and celebrate two amazing Lovejoy students. Mallory Cass and Austin Bennett. Mallory is a 7th grader at Willow Springs Middle School and was diagnosed with Childhood Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL) in 2014. Austin is a senior at Lovejoy High School and was diagnosed with ALL in 2017. Mallory, Austin and so many others have fought and battled to beat this disease to get across the ultimate finish line of being cancer free!
 
I've been given the opportunity to raise money for LLS that provides funds to champion the fight in battling this disease. As you think about your charitable giving at the end of this year (or even in 2019) and where it can have the most impact, I ask that you consider helping me in this cause by donating to the Leukemia Lymphoma Society.
 
Please help support me as I run to support LLS and those who have been touched by cancer! Because we all have a finish line to cross!"
