ELIGIBILITY – The end of the 5th six weeks is this Friday. Report cards will come out next Friday the 14th. Students will lose/gain eligibility at 2:45pm that Friday afternoon. This will affect the probable trip to Abilene for football playoffs. Make sure all assignments are in by Friday.
FOOTBALL – The football team is having a great season. They will be in the playoffs next week. It is very likely we will play in Abilene. The school district will pay for charter buses and give the students a per diem to cover food costs. We will have more details as schedules become official and final.

ALL CITY AUDITIONS – The all city honor band auditions are right around the corner. The Lamar has a long history of success in the all city band. This is an individual competition and part of the mandatory requirements for lettering in the LHS band. Students will soon sign up to audition. For students to be successful, they need to be practicing their audition music every night for a minimum of 30 minutes. The all city audition music will be used for spring band auditions as well.

QUOTE OF THE WEEK – “And we know that the richest experiences in our lives aren’t when we’re clamoring for validation from others, but when we’re listening to our own voice—doing something that matters, doing it well, and doing it in the service of a cause larger than ourselves.” – Excerpt From: Daniel H. Pink. “Drive.” PENGUIN group, 2011-02-21.
