The weather is cooling off and fall is in the air. This means it is time for Play Production!
November 26, 2019, is the LHS Play Festival! 10 teams from around the state will be performing in the venerable Ted Sorensen Theatre. This play production showcase is an opportunity for young actors and One-Act productions to refine their performances prior to district competitions and the chance to qualify for state. This great tradition would not be possible without your support. The halls will be full of people in costume hauling pieces of equipment and sets throughout the day. Thank you in advance for your help and support.

Here’s a message from Native American Caucus
Hi, I’m Mia White Bull, and I’m Oglala Lakota.
Thanksgiving is coming, and Native American Caucus would like to share some perspectives about the holiday and its history from
Thanksgiving as a holiday originates from the Native American philosophy of giving without expecting anything in return. Native people had a long tradition of expressing gratitude for the blessings of the earth and good harvests before Europeans came to this continent. In the first [colonial] celebration of this holiday, the Wampanoag [WOM-puh-nog] tribe not only provided [most of] the food for the feast, but also the teachings of agriculture and hunting. Corn, beans, wild rice, and turkey are some specific examples of foods introduced by Native Americans. [Without their help, the colonists would never have survived that first winter.
Thanks, from Native American Caucus
