Dear Parents & Guardians,
As I reflect on our first week of school, I want to tell you what a joy it is to see your children, whether new or returning to the high school, getting such a great start on the school year. The transition to our new schedule has gone very well! I appreciate your continued help in ensuring that your children arrive at school on time. They should be in their first period class and ready to go by 7:50 a.m.
We have announcements and the pledge of allegiance each day at 8:34 a.m. This year, we are keeping the announcements brief and encouraging students to read the hallway monitors for more details on news and events.  We also share information with our students and families through our website and School Messenger.

I am very happy to introduce our new Latin teacher, Mr. Joseph Barresi, who comes to us with over 12 years of experience teaching Latin at all levels, 1 through AP. Mr. Barresi was introduced to our staff and faculty on September 12 and will officially begin on October 9. Prior to this, he will be at the high school one full day a week for the next three weeks, and will also join us for our Open House on October 4.
There are a lot of exciting events coming up! Spirit Week starts Monday, September 17. Students can check the Daily Announcements on the website or see the monitors to find out what to wear each day! Our homecoming football game vs. Bishop Ludden is Friday, September 21, with the homecoming dance to follow on Saturday, September 22. College Financial Aid Night is Monday, September 17, at 7pm in the High School Auditorium and yearbook photos will be taken Friday, October 5. You’ll find much more on the website calendar too.
Thank you for all you have done to help prepare your children for a successful year!
The Laker Way,
 Gregory J. Santoro, Principal
