Thanksgiving is rolling in so you butter be thankful. You should be stuffed, but try not to hog  all the food. So be a sweet potato and grab your  yams. It’s going to bean awhile until you eat again. I hope you turkeys have a ham of a good time.

The 2017 LHS Golf team experienced a challenging season starting with the competition and our lack of experience as a team. We ended the season with 4 players: Freshman Josh Ellis (1st year), Sophomore Sarah Bazemore (1st year), Junior Brehon Epps (2nd year) and Corey Hasson (3rd year). We won two matches this year as a team and Corey Hasson qualified for the State Tournament. Corey is the first Lakeland golfer to make it to the State Tournament in 17 years. In order for more success, we need more players for the LHS Golf Team. If interested, please contact Coach Waller in Room 126.

Candy Clutter

Trash on the floor is not something to snicker at. The hallways are filled with candy wrappers and trash. When you and your 3 musketeers don’t throw away your trash, it gets piled up and the school gets dirty. Don’t be an airhead, clean up after yourself. Be the custodians lifesaver and find a trash can.
