Dear Students, Parents, and Guardians,
“I see you!”
In recent months, I have heard people say this to others. It seems to generally be used as a way of acknowledging a person for an accomplishment or something well done. Finding this interesting, I took a little bit of time to learn about the expression. The reading that I did led me to understand that it is a greeting that is used among tribes in Africa, and the greeting carries with it an acknowledgment of the person that goes beyond a normal greeting in western civilization. It is a deeper acknowledgement and validates and honors the person being greeted.
As we get prepared to start the new year, I am looking forward to seeing the many accomplishments that our students will earn, both in the classroom and out, and when they do something significant, they might hear their principal say, “I see you!”
The excitement will officially get started on Wednesday, August 16, 2017, when students return for their first full day of classes! The doors will open at LHS this year at 7:15 a.m.; the warning bell will ring at 7:35 a.m., and the tardy bell will ring at 7:42 a.m. The school day will still end at 2:37 p.m.
There are a couple of other events that I would like to let you know about. We will have our Freshmen and New Student Orientation on Thursday, August 10, at 7:00 p.m., and we will host an Open House at LHS on Monday, August 14, at 7:00 p.m. Open House is open to all students and their parents/guardians.
I am looking forward to seeing students back in the hallways! The hallways and classrooms are cleaned and waxed, and the floors are so shiny, one can just about see their reflection in them!
Student schedules will be distributed to our freshmen and new students at Orientation, and our upperclassmen will receive theirs at Open House and on the first day of school.
I am looking forward to an outstanding school year! I will “see you” soon!
Love. Learn. Lead.
Go Red Raiders!
All the best to you and yours!
Mr. Eisler, Principal
London High School
