From the LWHS PTSA | 2021 Senior Salute Information

Attention Parents of Seniors!

Are you disappointed your Senior hasn’t had a typical year with memorable events like football games, theatre performances, Homecoming and band concerts? Are you worried about having a memorable End of Year/Graduation? The Senior Salute committee needs your help! We are already planning some great events and have a plan for Yard Signs for Seniors but more volunteers are needed. We also want to make sure you are always informed since plans can change depending on restrictions in place. Please fill out this form so we can make sure our Seniors have a memorable Year.

We are also collecting pictures for a video production. We need parents to help! Encourage your student to upload videos/pictures or ask them for pictures that you can upload. Pictures of anything your senior has done this year or favorites from past years would be appreciated. 

Questions? Contact Jennifer Wilson, LWHS PTSA Senior Salute Chairperson
