From the Junior Class: It won’t be long before it is Friday, May 3rd – the Junior/Senior Prom! It is a night to make memories that will last a lifetime.

(Please be aware that the dress code applies to all Lumen students and their guests—any students and/or guests that are not properly attired will not be allowed entry.) Below is attached a flier that will help with your planning and shopping.
From Mr. Marcero: For those who took part or who went to our first LC Community Choir Concert this last summer, they saw a great group of staff, kids, and parents come together to sing some wonderful music.

For this next concert our group will be rehearsing regularly on Wednesdays from 4:30-5:30 pm in the choral room. The Winter Concert will be on March 13th, and I hope you can join us in our performance!
