The winter isn't stopping Regioners! With all the fun things coming up this weekend, its clear that a little snow won't bother us. Check out what's going on!
The Sport of Smarts
At La Lumiere school, sports are encouraged for all students. However, for those not athletically inclined, there are other opportunities. During the winter season, there are two academically motivated after school activities: Science Olympiad and Academic Decathlon. These teams meet when the school day is over, and spend their time...studying. It might seem crazy, but students enjoy taking part in these activities, even with the extra work and thought required. On January 20, the Decathlon team competed at their regionals.
A Rally To Really Rock To
The sound of feet squeaking on the gym floor is silenced by the tension in the air. 27th Best, a band made up of two juniors and seniors, stands poised behind the curtain. The Homecoming pep rally has already begun, but the band has yet to make their debut, both as the first act and their first show. Finally, the counselor and showrunner, Mrs. Walden, asks the students to come onto the gym floor in front of the stage. This is it.
Running a successful nonprofit organization is definitely not easy, and not for the faint of heart. Providing valuable services to the community, developing programs that will enrich people’s lives, and doing so while on a very strict budget requires meticulous planning, careful thought, and a strong team of dedicated people with the talent and commitment to pull it all together and make it work.
