Summer is a time for students to relax and enjoy! However, it is important for them to keep their minds and bodies active. We encourage students to engage in activities such as reading, working puzzles, playing outside and interacting with friends. Lorena ISD offers several opportunities for students. Check our links below for additional information.
Congratulations to LHS Student Cole George! He is one of 15 recipients of this year's Texas State Board of Education Student Heroes Awards.
From the SBOE press release:
Cole George, a ninth-grade student at Lorena High School in Lorena ISD, saw a need and decided to personally address it. While eating in the school cafeteria, he saw a special needs student whose disability affects her motor skills, making it difficult to bring her fork to her mouth. After watching her struggle, he began researching different tools that might help her. He found a battery-operated adaptive fork that bends and levels to help a struggling eater. He began doing extra chores to raise the money to buy the fork. George raised the $240 necessary to buy the fork with an additional spoon attachment for his classmate.
Horton attended Interlochen Summer Arts Camp Trombone, Tuba and Euphonium Institute in Michigan last summer with faculty and staff from all 50 states and more than 40 countries. Learning from these world-class instructors is helping him grow as a musician. He will serve the Lorena High School band as Show Drum Major for the 2017-2018 school year.
