Principal's Perspective Newsletters & Messages
Welcome to the 2014 - 2015 school year vikings!
After this energizing meeting I was walking up the hallway and was pulled in by the small gym buzzing from hundreds of our dedicated band students preparing for the school year with their band camp. I was serenaded by the kids a couple of days later as evidence of their hard work and skill. Do you ever wonder what is like being serenaded by 140 musically talented students? Watch the video above to find out!
These are just two quick illustrations of why it is great to be a Viking and why I am thankful to the principal of this incredible school. As we start the school year I am constantly reminded why excellence is the standard at LSHS. Excellence is not just a term we use, but it is a practice, a behavior and a mindset. I was asked by a neighboring educator why I think our wrestling program has won ten state championships and I replied because they work hard to do so every year. We don’t take excellence for granted, but practice it as a part of our culture.
That work ethic is also alive and well in our practice of our academics. Simply put, more students at LSHS are attending school, choosing positive behaviors, and performing in the classroom than ever before. I attribute this excellence to the outstanding teachers at LSHS, the supportive District and community and engaged parents.
Join me this year in experiencing the excellence of being a Viking. Please consider this an invitation to attend our assemblies, our activities and our athletic events to see excellence in action.
Proud to be a Viking!
Eric Cahan, LSHS Principal
