REMINDER: Assistant District Attorney Adam Howl and will be talking to students and parents about Cyber Security on Monday at 1:30 in the theater. Parents are invited to attend and will have further discussion with the counselors after the presentation.
Over the past week, we adjusted to the extra hour on Sunday for the end of Daylight Saving Time.On Tuesday evening, the Science Department hosted FUSE Night with UCSB to a crowd of 75 parents, where parents had the opportunity to practice hands on science.On Wednesday morning, the whole school (students and staff) participated in Olin Tai Chi with Ismael Huerta on the track field (picture linked and video as part of the LC Spotlight).

On Thursday afternoon, we held our quarterly Renaissance Awards Assembly for academic achievement. 261 students had over a B average with good citizenship.On Friday, we observed the Veterans' Day holiday, and on Saturday, 50 students and teachers toured UCLA, attended the I'm Going to College outreach from UCLA in the Rose Bowl parking lot, and then watch the UCLA football game.
Many thanks to all *students, staff, and community members) who participated in the Lancer Love. A total of $12,222 was raised - to be used for library books, technology, and activities for students. The Lancer Love basket was won by the family of Osvaldo Salgado.
The LC Spotlight will be shown on Monday during Homeroom. Here is the video: LC Spotlight 11 13 17
The library now had 168 eBooks for students to check out. Mrs. Curtis will be happy to show students how to access the eBooks on their iPads.

There seems to be a severe shortage of substitute teachers. Teachers have been gracious enough to cover classes, period by period, but we are not approving leaves (other than sick) unless we have a sub. We know it's a hardship for students and teachers.

No texts or Parent Square posts will be made to you before 7 a.m.or after 9 p.m.
