Principal Welcome Letter
Dear Lansing High Students, Parents, and Community Stakeholders,
I am excited to be a part of the USD 469 and LHS staff in my third year as principal at the high school. As has been repeated by many, this year will be different than any of my previous school experiences. We are blessed to have an abundance of good kids that represent themselves, their families, our school, and this community positively. Our school is honored to be able to serve such a good community.
Our educational vision is a community where every citizen values and maximizes their own education and commits to supporting the highest quality of learning opportunities for all children and adults. In working to achieve this vision, we will ask students to regularly collaborate, critically think, and work with and through adversity. We hope to ignite learning curiosity in all of our students.
This year also brings a few changes. Families have the option to choose to be a full time remote student or be in person Monday – Thursday. All students are remote on Friday. We have also changed the bell schedule back to a classic seven period day with time built in for CCR (also called seminar, homeroom, etc. by other schools). We have added five minutes to the school day, starting at 8:00 and have moved up building entry time to 7:20. As the year progresses, I will continue to work with staff and students to analyze policies and practices to recognize areas that can be updated to improve the learning environment for teachers and students.
If you have questions regarding classroom activities, please contact the teacher. If your concern is regarding overall programs, curriculum, discipline, or activities, please contact me directly via email or phone.
We are glad to have you and your family as a part of the Lansing Lion family. We want you to know our mission is to provide students the opportunity to develop the scholastic, technical, social and life-long skills essential for academic, occupational, and personal success as productive citizens. With the help and cooperation of all stakeholders, this will be a great school year.
