SENIORS! With graduation approaching, we need your help with the Distinguished Educator Award! The award helps everyone at Lake Forest High School celebrate, appreciate, and acknowledge the wonderful relationships our students and faculty create year after year. You may nominate a teacher, counselor, dean, or administrator for this award. Seniors can find the nomination form on the LFHS website. The form asks students to answer four questions (in essay form). Students may individually nominate an educator, or do so as a group (max 3 people.) Seniors are asked to be as specific as possible in their answers. This is not a contest that judges writing abilities; rather will be considering the content of the answers.
The essay is due on Friday May 18th. Please email your submission to educatoraward@lfschools.net
All nominated educators will be presented (by the Superintendent/Principal) with a framed certificate at the closing faculty ceremony. Educators will also receive the original essay written in their behalf. The student with the winning essay will read a portion of their essay at graduation. This will be a surprise to the educator. Questions: contact Mrs. Logas at klogas@lfschools.net. Please do NOT send your submission to Mrs. Logas.

Apply for LFHS’s Environmental Commission - An Environmental Commission is a form of collaboration between students, teachers, and community members in order to create new plans of environmental actions to be implemented within the school and community. This form of collaboration is a resource that many students do not get the opportunity to be a part of, so it will be a great resource for the students’ voices to be heard. Our goal is to encourage student led activism and implement green practices at our school. Meeting schedule- We will meet once a month for an hour and a half during the week (Monday-Friday) either before school or afterschool. The type of issues that we would discuss at meetings would range from recycle habits of the school, to potential composting, and the installation of solar panels. If you are interested, apply at this link: https://docs.google.com/document/d/112kT_A3d-nL1Da...
