The Scout Shout-Out is an opportunity for Scouts of all types to honor each other when we demonstrate the values that are most important to us. If you would like to recognize a fellow Scout for kindness, hard work, personal accomplishments or any other contribution to our community, please visit here.

Why: He joined our outdoor education trip, and even though he came in not really knowing any of the students, he really tried to get to know every person for those three  days, and he did.

Who: Mary Tolendano
Where:  Extra-curriculars

Why: Ms. T. dove into the theater tech head on and with amazing skill and patience with the design and creation of the Rumors set. She proved to be a great leader and inspiration to the tech crew and together, they transformed the RMA into a beautiful two story living room of a house! Ms. T. accomplished all of this while also learning the ropes of LFHS and upgrading our theater facilities!

Who: Whitney Wisniewski
Where:  Extra-curriculars

Why: Last year, Whitney came up with the idea for the Cinematic Comic Club. She has single-handedly gotten this club up and running with the support of Ms. Roman as sponsor. Whitney has built a space where students can talk about their love of comics and walk into a space where they know others share and understand their interests. The club has grown to include several dedicated members and is really a testament to a need that existed in the school that had previously not been met.

Message:  Great job, Whitney! I hope you are really proud of the club you have created!

From: Ms. Malec


Who: Mr. Werner
Where: Athletics

Why: Coach Werner has been a great addition to the varsity volleyball coaching staff this year! He has showed so much patience and kindness towards all the girls and without him, this team would not be as enjoyable and competitive as it is! 🙂

Message:  Without you coach Werner, I would not have improved as much as I have and please know that everything you do for this team, from stressful weeks to giving up your     weekends, does not go unnoticed and is appreciated by all of us. Thank you for all you do! 🙂
