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

Class of 2021 PTSA Senior Signs

Let’s celebrate our seniors and their accomplishments! The LWHS PTSA is excited to offer LW Class of 2021 Signs for display in your yards or windows. These signs are 18x24 in size, include an H-stake for yard display, and can include your student's name - all for only $10.00 per sign! The custom design was created by an LWHS senior and converted to a digital format by LWHS senior parents. Thank you to Riley Rabuchin, Carmen Andonian and others for their work on the signs!

All families are invited to make a donation which will be used to purchase signs for families in need or to support other recognition events being planned for our seniors during this most unusual year.

To purchase a sign or donate, please visit the LWHS PTSA website. If you would like a sign and are in need of financial assistance, please reach out to your student's counselor and one will be provided to you at no cost.

Please place your order by Friday, March 12. Exact distribution details will follow as we find ways to comply with social distancing guidelines. We will communicate more information to all purchasers once signs are available.

An additional order window will open in April, but the price will go up. Order now and don’t miss out!
