find your focus
The week of November 11-15 was School Psychology Awareness Week, in which the theme was "Find Your Focus." School counselors at each LC school were asked to select one student who consistently finds their focus to receive the "Find Your Focus" award and prize bag. A student who consistently finds their focus engages in behaviors such as paying attention, being persistent and determined in and out of the classroom, seeing ideas clearly, identifying areas of interest, and identifying and following action steps to achieve goals.
LCHS award winner was Shanna Kneece. Congratulations Shanna!
HOSA & mission dawgs
HOSA members spent part of their Sunday helping Mission Dawgs Augusta provide needed materials to the local homeless in the community.
"They did a great job with everything we asked them to do....I have always been proud to say I am a supporter of LCHS, but I was as proud today as I have ever been. "
