Good morning. This is Ms. Emery. Students are reminded that registration for next year must be completed by 10:00 pm on Friday, February 10th.  Make sure you can log onto Naviance today. See the school counselor at your lunch shift with questions.

Interested in learning about drama? Aspiring to be the next hit Hollywood actor? Everybody must start somewhere, so why not sign up for a theatre class next year? Classes are fun, have a variety of hands-on activities, and involve lots of games. See Mrs. Smithhisler in room D101 with any questions.

Calling all aspiring dancers: Taking a dance class has proven to relieve stress, lower high blood pressure, increase flexibility, and improve self-confidence. Go ahead and sign up for a dance class next year with Mrs. Smithhisler. The classes promise to be fun and energizing!

Did you know that 60% of Maryland college graduates owe an average of $27,000 in student loans? One way to decrease college costs and earn college credit is to take Advanced Placement courses.  Linganore High School offers AP courses in Biology, Chemistry, Environmental Science and Physics.  Seriously consider taking an AP science course next year.

Lancers, are you aware that more than 60,000 new jobs in the field of agriculture will be available by 2020?  Some of our LHS alumni currently have careers as veterinarians, mechanics, underwater welders, golf course managers and florists.  If you want a career where you love going to work every day and get to work with your hands in all types of environments, then consider taking a Pre-Vet Class, Horse Care Management, Agriculture Science, Horticulture or Small Engines Class. Remember, you can earn your financial literacy credit in Intro to Ag Science & Technology!  Any questions, please see Ms. Beachy or Mr. Hawthorne!

A reminder to all Advanced Placement students: Your exam registrations are due to Mrs. Smith in the AP Office by next Friday, February 17th.

Attention juniors and sophomores:  If you are interested in taking part in an internship, apprenticeship, service learning, or work study for next year and have questions, see Mr. Brown or Ms. Radil-Harris during lunch today or tomorrow.  Work study is offered only to current juniors.  You do not need to have a work site or placement at this time in order to include the course on your registration. Here’s more information from two of our seniors.
