For Tuesday, October 18, 2016 – “L” day
L&N Student Mission – #Own it!
School Ops:

·      Students and staff – please help us identify and celebrate our diversity by taking 2 minutes to complete this 3 question survey.  Click here to complete before the end of the day Wednesday.

·      Sophomores and Seniors – in case you missed them before fall break, Josten’s will be back on campus all three lunches TODAY, Oct 18, to collect orders and deposits ($60)!  Stop by and see them in the Commons!

·      ThRemember, all spirit week outfits must meet KCS dress code!  The point is to show school spirit – so think about how your dress might be perceived by others – your challenge is to inspire school spirit, not offend others.  Thank you for your professionalism in advance!  As you dress up this week remember to get some pics of you and your friends and tag #lnspirit16 to instagram or Twitter!

·      CPenny wars - There will be a table with a jar for each grade where you can donate coins that will go toward benefitting your class.
