DISTRICT MOURNS PASSING OF BENEFACTOR GEORGE READ

Our hearts are heavy in the district today as we learned of the passing this morning of a very special friend of the Lakewood City Schools, George P. Read. Our thoughts are with the Read family at this difficult time. Mr. Read and his family’s selfless generosity have helped make possible the stellar music program of which we all are so proud! We can never express how grateful we are for the impact Mr. Read has had on Lakewood children. Last May, we honored Mr. Read by naming the Lakewood High Music Department after him and it warms our hearts to know that this amazing man’s spirit will live on through our Music Department for many generations to come.

HUNDREDS COME TO WALK LHS HALLS FOR LAST TIME

You only spend four years of your life in high school, but by the turnout for the final tours of the old buildings of Lakewood High School, those years never leave you. Hundreds of people, young to old, showed up on Saturday, Dec. 6 to take one last walk through the nearly 100-year-old halls of the “old building."


STUDENT IMMIGRANTS SHARE THEIR STORIES

While many students at Lakewood High School began their lives in another country, not many of them share their stories with their fellow students. On Wednesday, students in some World History, Human Rights & Conflict and English Language Learner classes heard the very different immigrant stories of two young adults who were part of a documentary featured at film festivals across the country.
