Welcome Back Letter and One-to-One Information

August 01, 2017

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!

Sincerely,

Mr. Eisler, Principal

London High School

LONDON HIGH SCHOOL GOES ONE-TO-ONE WITH TECHNOLOGY

London High School will be going One-To-One with technology at the start of the 2017-2018 school year as each student will be given a new Chromebook to use inside and outside the classroom for educational purposes. This one-to-one initiative is made possible after a successful pilot program at London Middle School last year that showed the advantages of students using the Chromebooks in the classroom and being able to take those devices home. Student use outside of the school district will still be monitored by district web-filters, allowing appropriate use of technology a staple of program. The nearly 600 devices will be handed out to the students during schedule pick-up for the high school with a goal of teachers and students to use the new technology the opening days of the school year.

The One-To-One initiative will broaden the learning capabilities of students by granting them a device when not on school grounds. This ability will allow students to continue their learning outside of the classroom, post homework to Google Classroom, and even take on-line coursework through the district’s Unlimited program. All of these options are focused at making London City Schools the highlight of Madison County and the Central Ohio region as the district continues to push for high achievement, constant growth, and individual success from each student.

-- Mr. Browning, LHS Asst. Principal
 
 
LHS Data Dashboard for School Year 2017 - '18
 
Dear Parents, Guardians, and Community Members,
 
In our continued efforts to improve the work that we do at LHS, we have identified some specific areas of our work that we want to monitor.  As we monitor them, we make adjustments to what it is that we do.  In an effort to be transparent and let you see what it is we are monitoring, we are providing this data dashboard (i.e., like the dashboard of your car) to allow you to see our numbers, as well.  Please know that we will be updating this information throughout the course of the year.  
 
Thank you!  :)  
 
 
Again, thank you!
 
Mr. Eisler
