Letter to LHS
Hello from Lodi High! As Principal, I just have to pass this along. Visitors passing through Lodi last weekend encountered a group of Lodi High students at Pietro's, and had some very kind things to say about that chance meeting. If you know your student was one of those referred to in this very complementary letter (see below) please let them know this is what can happen when they take the time to be considerate to passing strangers. It doesn't surprise me; we see this every day walking the hallways and interacting with our students at Lodi. In this season of Thanks, I am also thankful that perfect strangers set the time aside to formally complement the courtesy and civility of a group of teenagers. Why? Because teenagers are typically overlooked and "under-rewarded" for the good things and random acts of kindness they do. Needless to say, this kind of encouragement is important for our students to experience, as the effects of doing so not only build character, but tend to be contagious in a good way. We're proud of your kids, as I'm sure you are.
The 3rd Block “L” for Academics Award Ceremony is Tuesday, December 2nd @ 7 am in the cafeteria annex. This is for the Class of 2017. There are 74 students that earned their Block “L” for a 3.8 GPA or above last year. Congratulations!!! from your Lodi High Counselors
Congrats Block 'L' Students!
