Principal's Perspective Newsletters & Messages
Happy Spring Viking Community:
I almost broke into tears when one of my students came up to me and gave me a senior graduation announcement this week. I have known this young lady and her family for over 15 years and was shocked into realizing this year is quickly winding down. Every year seems to fly by, but this year was particularly fast. I have to attribute the speed to the richness and volume of activities. We really have had a fun year. Reflecting back on the sold-out Homecoming game on ESPN, the football playoffs in the Tacoma Dome, the wrestling state championships, the packed dances and the anticipation of memorable end-of-the-year activities including our commencement ceremony June 7th makes me even more appreciative of being a part of this great high school.
Academically, we are in the middle of our testing season at LSHS and we are taking this opportunity to show our excellence in the classroom. The kids and teachers have worked diligently to prepare for more than just these assessments and the efforts are sure to pay off. Having been in and out of SBA testing and AP preparation sessions I am confident our kids will continue to lead the state and county academically. It is a great source of pride for me to be so confident that our staff, with 77% percent having earned a master’s degree or higher, is providing a world-class education for the students of our community.
Graduation season is always a heartwarming time of the year for me. I hope you join me in reflecting what a special year it was and how lucky we all are to be Vikings together.
See you soon,
Eric Cahan LSHS Principal
