Dear D95 Parents and Guardians,
I hope the opening of the year continues is keeping your students engaged. It appears there have been very few obstacles to a smooth start of the year. When there are obstacles, our team of administrators and support staff will do their best to conduct reviews and determine the best course of action. We are always grateful for your patience.
Examples of Excellence
At LZHS we have seven National Merit Semifinalists this year, an exceptional achievement, based on scores on the National Merit Student Qualifying Test (NMSQT). Semifinalists are the top 10% of achievers and the National Merit Corporation has $50,000,000 in scholarships associated with the NMSQT. Congrats to the following students on this recognition: Mitchell Bader, Gretchen Guirmarin, Annie Li, Anagha Rajagopalan, Sarah Sobol, Andrea Tyson, David Zaccarine.
And we are excited to highlight the achievement of LZHS Thespians Teah Mirabelli, Alex Ketcham, Emma Belew, Charlie Frampton, Ed Pogalz, and Emily Groeller on being cast in this year’s All-State production of In the Heights!
Don't forget, the Ed Foundation's Color Run is October 14 at LZHS. Register by September 24. Click here to register now.
Community Engagement Changes for 2018-19
We seek to have a Community Engagement series every year, but this year will be different. Because we revised our strategic plan, we will not have a single topic for community engagement over a set number of dates. Rather, we will vary topics over different dates, and we will target conversations with individual school communities on dates that work best with those schools. The calendar online will be revised, but please be aware that the following events are district-wide and all are invited:
- September 27 - "Most Likely to Succeed" documentary at Foglia YMCA (register at Foglia Y)
- October 15 - Digital Citizenship Presentation by the "B3" organization
- October 30 - Digital Citizenship Presentation by the "B3" organization
- November 28 - Vaping update and prevention (ELA Coalition and D95)
- February 26 - Community Leaders Forum (SEL and Leadership)
