Welcome back students, parents and staff!! The PTSO is very excited about starting the 2017-2018 school year. Once again, the PTSO membership will remain at $10 per family. We encourage all families to help our students and staff by joining this organization. Remember that the majority of all the money raised by PTSO helps fund the PTSO Scholarship Fund for our seniors. In order to be recommended for a PTSO scholarship, you must have been a PTSO member all of the years the student attended LHS. Membership forms will be available at Open House at the PTSO table. Please stop by the PTSO table and meet our officers, pick up a form, and purchase LHS spirit wear. Forms will also be sent home with your student at the beginning of the school year, and they are always available under the membership tab at www. Also, please join our group, @lhspts, on Remind and follow us on Facebook for info during the year about various events. Thank you for your continued support of Loganville High School and the PTSO. Let’s have a wonderful school year!!

COME DINE IN THE LHS CAFETERIA! Each day at lunch, we offer a several options from sandwich and grill type meals to a variety line that includes salads, Mexican fare, pizza, and tailgate food. We’re even working on a recipe for smoothies that would be a great walking breakfast! All of our meals meet the USDA meal planning guidelines. The meal prices this year are as follows:

Breakfast: Lunch:

Student: $1.25 Student: $2.50

Student reduced: $0.30 Student reduced: $0.40

Adult: $2.00 Adults: $3.60

Some of our students may qualify for free or reduced meals. These meals are available for students both at lunch and breakfast. Free and reduced meal students must select a certain number of items to qualify for the price break, but they could always get pieces and parts that would look like a snack to the average adult, but would serve as a meal for a teenager. Unless the family receives a letter from our office, all students are required to submit a new free and reduced meal application each year (regardless of whether they had benefits in the past or not).

Tips for Parents: Starting Another Year of High School 1. Know your child’s teachers. If you have questions or concerns with your child’s academics, contact your child’s teachers (email addresses and phone numbers are available on the LHS website). 2. Get to know your child’s counselor. 3. Help your student get ready and organized so that he/she can start the semester on the right foot. Creating a routine is also important for success. 4. Monitor your child’s progress through the online grading program, Infinite Campus. 5. Watch for flyers regarding upcoming Parent Nights. These events can help answer crucial questions you might have. 6. Help your student learn which study methods work best for him/her (i.e. studying in silence or with music; at a library or at the kitchen table, etc). 7. Above all, call the school when you have questions or concerns. We are here to help your student succeed, and we look forward to working with you.

F FA A N D F C C L A M E M B E R S AT T E N D SUMMER LEADERSHIP CAMP FFA-FCCLA Summer Leadership Camp is a week-long camp experience just for FFA and FCCLA members in Georgia. This year, students from LHS attended Summer Leadership Camp May 29 through June 2. Throughout the week-long camp, teams earned points by competing in various events. The competitions included team events such as kickball, volleyball, swim meet, relay race, and the obstacle course. There were also individual competitions such as basketball, crafts, soccer kick, football toss, quiz bowl, fishing, Airsoft, and archery. Leadership, teamwork, sportsmanship, and attitude are a part of Summer Leadership Camp.

Credit Recovery Opportunity: Loganville High School will be offering students who have fallen behind in credits an opportunity to get back on track. A study skills class will be offered both semesters this year during the school day. Space is limited. See your counselor for more details.

Student Schedules: Student schedules will be available July 25th on Infinite Campus. Please note that this is a tentative schedule for the 2017-2018 school year. It is possible that the semester, block, and/or teachers for courses listed could change. Final schedules will be distributed on the first day of each semester. We will do our best to accommodate the specific academic needs of our students. Nevertheless, please understand that some schedules may be changed for the following reasons: • If students do not pass a required core class, they may be placed back in the class. • The need to balance class sizes. • Students do not meet the prerequisite for an Advanced course (85 or above in previous Advanced course or 95 or above in a College Preparatory course) • Staffing issues and/or course deletions. • There is a schedule conflict with another requested course. Schedule changes will only be made for the following reasons: • Students have already received credit for a class shown on their schedule. • Students are not scheduled for 8 classes. • A class on the schedule requires a prerequisite and the student did not passed the prerequisite. • Students have all elective classes OR all core (LA, SS, SC, MA) area classes in the same semester. Foreign Language is an elective. • Students are an official senior and must have a course to graduate. If students need to request a change, they can either obtain a form from the Counselor’s Corner link on the LHS website and send it to their counselor via email, or they may pick up a hard copy of the form outside the counseling office and return it to the designated box. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact your child’s counselor.
