I hope you had a great 4th of July and are enjoying the summer with your student. Administratively, we have been busy hiring new staff and getting ready for the 2021-2022 school year. Summer is flying by and school will be starting in just over a month! 
I wanted to send an email today with some reminders and new information about upcoming dates, deadlines, and events. Please take a few minutes to review the contents of the email, and let us know if you have any questions or need clarification. Have a great week!

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.
