Washington D.C.: 7th-8th graders will travel in June 2017 to Washington D.C. It is not too late to join the fun. Interested students should see Mrs. Sheehan for more information. Several fundraisers will be held throughout the school year, so if you are short on cash, don’t let that stop you! There are also scholarships offered by Worldstrides.
Journalism: Though started in the 2015-16 school year as a 20-minute option each day, this year journalism is expanding to be a full period classroom this year. Journalism is more than just a class, providing students an opportunity to explore their community after hours, reporting the information, bringing it back to our students at LES. Our news show, The Buzz, is created by journalism students and will air at least monthly at LES.

Bleacher Bums will have their own section at ball games, receive free game admission (if wearing their Bleacher Bum t-shirts), and will have other fun opportunities throughout the school year.
