A Message from the Principal
February 24, 2020

Parents and Guardians,

I hope you had a chance to make it out to Denim and Diamonds this past Saturday night. It was a great event and a great reminder of the incredible support this community provides our kids. 

As we quickly approach the end of the grading period on March 6th, please let your student's teachers know of any questions or concerns you may have. Teachers should have their grade books current this Wednesday to help communicate how students are doing academically.

I wanted to remind you that the 3rd Annual STEM Festival is this weekend on February 29th from 10:00-3:00 at Lovejoy High School. We hope you can attend this STEMtastic event with your family. The STEM Festival also offers extra opportunities, like the CANgineering Competition, games, speakers, college representatives, and lots of fun for everyone.

Also, we are quickly approaching our SAT Schoolday event on Wednesday, March 4th. This event is just for LHS Juniors and each 11th grade student who attends school that day will be taking the SAT for free. More information about this as well as other upcoming events and student success can be found below.  

Sincerely,

Chris Mayfield
Principal
Lovejoy High School
