It is back to school at Lawrence High School and let me tell you the feeling is exhilarating. It is exciting to brag that Lawrence had prevailed through the Covid-19 pandemic.
With the start of the new school year there have been some amazing and exciting school events and changes. There are no more masks and no more health checks required to enter the schools’ campus.
Along with the changes includes staffing. To kick it off (pun intended), Jason Supple (Lawrence’s former head football coach) is now Lawrence’s athletic director. This is exciting for students as many have grown with him since beginning elementary school. There have also been many staffing additions as well.
Lawrence has had a complete revamp of school spirit.
Lawrence’s own Student Government Association President Tyler Bowers with the help of the SGA board including Emma Urgen, Dagoberto Galdamez, and myself Alexis Acosta under the direction of Hugh Walker and Irina Bayeva had helped to completely revamp the atmosphere of the school’s lobby with bright blue and gold decorations.
Along with the new year we are excited to see all clubs and games back in session. It’s a Tornado Alert! With Homecoming around the corner our football team is pumped to kick off the fall 22’ season.
Senior class president Ryanna Lopez along with the help of the senior class board including Dexter Robinson, David Reyes, and Billy Godoy had helped to kick off two of Lawrence’s annual senior events including Senior Class Barbecue and Senior Sunrise.
In other Lawrence news, the district is keeping up with the digital age inside and outside of classes. Lawrence High School has just introduced a lunch pre-ordering system.
The FD MealPlanner application has allowed students to order either breakfast or lunch through their phones or Chromebooks up to a week ahead of time. This app minimizes lines and allows for faster service for those who do not have a lunch period.
As September rolls forward, students are eager to get back to clubs full steam and look forward to many upcoming fall events including Pep Rally, Homecoming, Safe Trick or Treat, and many more.
As a senior here at LHS one piece of advice that I can give is to never be afraid to put yourself out there. For any incoming freshman or students in general, “check out that club”, “go out for that team.” Lawrence is famous for its diversity, tradition, and acceptance and has a wide range of sports and clubs to choose from. Go Tornadoes!
