Educational Support Professionals Day
This week we celebrated our Educational Support Professionals! These men and women work behind the scenes to ensure our students have an environment of excellence!

We are fortunate to have a fantastic Transportation Team that are “Difference Makers” in students' lives. Every day, this fantastic team goes above and beyond to help our students start and end their day with excitement!
Thanks to our community's incredible generosity, the custodians at each campus received a $150.00 gift card for a Thanksgiving Dinner from our amazing #OneHeartOneLovejoy families! This was just one of our community's ways to show appreciation for our custodial team and their continued dedication to keeping all of our Leopards safe!

The Carol-O-Grams Experience - December 5th

The best way to spread holiday cheer is singing loud for all to hear!

The Lovejoy High School Choir is excited to announce our first-ever drive-thru Carol-O-Grams Experience! In a year that has been difficult for many, we wanted to offer an extraordinary opportunity for Lovejoy students, families and community members to get a big dose of holiday cheer - in a safe, joyful, music-filled way. This one-of-a-kind drive-thru experience will include freshly-baked sweet treats, hot cocoa, beautiful harmonies, a fun game with prizes, an appearance by Buddy the Elf, and even a safe photo-op with Santa!
SANTA? Santa, here? I know him! I know him!

Tickets are sold in 30 minute entry windows and must be purchased in advance. The event will take place at LHS in the back parking lot, and each guest’s experience should take approximately 30-45 minutes from arrival.

There’s room for everyone on the Nice List!

This Carol-O-Grams Experience has been created with our youngest Lovejoy students and their families in mind, but will be fun for all ages!

Help Us Keep our Leopards Healthy
Most of the COVID cases we are seeing in the district are occurring outside the school day. We are hopeful that with our community's help and vigilance, we are able to keep our Leopards healthy and safe during the break and keep our case count under the 10% campus closure threshold!
