Lumen Christi Traditions
From the Main Office: One of our goals this year is to grow traditions and celebrate students more regularly for all their different accomplishments. For example, this year, we have started the “State Competition Send-Off”, in which teams heading to state level competitions have a special procession in the school building. We have been thrilled to honor Girls’ Golf (check out our Facebook page!), Girls’ Cross Country (and Gene Hendrickson!), Drama, and Boys’ Football, Girls’ Cheerleading, and Band so far this year in this new tradition.
With our latest state Championship, we are excited to begin a new celebratory tradition that can grow with all of our programs over the years. On Sunday, January 21, we will be hosting a community wide event to celebrate the 48th Lumen Christi State title, achieved in Boys’ Football. The event begins at 3:00 p.m. with a community Mass in the gym, followed by a traditional Tight End Club spaghetti dinner. Anyone is welcome! Tickets are $7 per person or $25 for a family of four or more. Tickets are limited, and can be purchased in the Main Office. We hope you can join us in recognizing our fabulous young people!
From Mr. Havlicek: Students and Parents grades 7-11: We will be partnering once again with Sylvan Learning Center to provide an opportunity for your student to receive practice taking the ACT. The opportunity will be held at Lumen Christi on January 20th, 2018. The cost will be $30 and it will run from 8am-1pm that day. To register, please contact Mr. Havlicek at firstname.lastname@example.org.
College Planning for Juniors
From Mr. Havlicek: Parents of Juniors: Right before Christmas Break, all Juniors received the JUNIOR PLANNING PACKET for COLLEGE in their myjacs.org email account. This important piece of information to help them begin the College Planning Process will be used during their initial college meeting with Mr. H, held between January and the end of March (Spring Break). It is very important that students and parents are able to look through and work through the packet together BEFORE the meeting so they can be best helped for identifying a direction for college. Email Mr. Havlicek (email@example.com) with any questions.
