Step into the middle school and high school this fall and you will certainly notice that the buildings are brighter, fresher and clearly the Home of the Falcons!

Fresh coats of paint in school colors will demonstrate school spirit and Falcon pride.

The consensus among middle and high school student officers was that the hallways in both schools were dreary and not in keeping with school tradition. The lockers were blue and the walls were yellow and had not been painted for as long as anyone could remember. 

In a couple of weeks, lockers and walls will be a combination of beautiful deep Falcon green and white.

Superintendent of Schools, Dr. Anna F. Hunderfund, administrators and advisors met with the members of the middle and high school student governments to discuss the possible color options for both schools. She shared renderings with them that showed multiple color combinations and based on their input, lockers and walls were spruced up over the summer. Murals will also be painted by students during the school year.

The photos show you the before and during and a bit of the after, but stay tuned for more as the work will be fully completed just before school opens on Sept. 6th!

Fun in the Sun!

The district’s Summer Recreation program was a huge success with 115 children attending during the program’s busiest week of the summer. From arts and crafts to science projects and field trips, children not only had fun, but enriched their education as well.

The program also gives teenagers the opportunity to work as counselors-in-training, gaining work and leadership experience –and the younger children look up to them as role models.

Forming new friendships is another benefit of the program and many campers will be excited to see their new friends in school or to attend summer recreation with them again next year.

The program is run by Monica Cagney and registration for next year will be available in the spring of 2017.

While much of the community is soaking up the last few bits of summer vacation, there are some students sweating it out on the football field for LVHS.  JV and Varsity football teams began to practice on Aug. 15 and they are already bonding, conditioning their bodies and reinforcing important skills and tactics.

Our football players joined new LVHS Head Football Coach Chris Wagner and his Assistants John Barth, Jordan Ioviero and Casey Neilly on the field to get in shape for the upcoming season. The teams have been training during the off-season as well.

Following an undefeated regular season last year, our Varsity team is working hard to continue that tradition. “The boys are dedicated to doing what it takes to have a great season,” said Director of Health, Physical Education and Athletics, Mark. J. Dantuono.

Other sports teams will begin practice on August 22nd.

Game schedules for all Fall sports, including Football, can be found by clicking here.

Come out and cheer with the other outstanding Falcon fans for all of our outstanding Falcon players!
