‘Do our best for our dear old L.H.S.’

Editor:

Last weekend our family had the privilege of attending a very successful performance of “Suessical the Musical” at Lakewood High School. We were thoroughly entertained by close to 100 active, energetic and talented high school students. We observed first hand this group of students put forth a performance that they can be truly proud of.

However, nothing was more meaningful and moving than the cast and crew joining together to sing the school’s alma mater at the conclusion of each show. I witnessed firsthand many audience members brought to tears at the heartfelt rendition of this song. This drama tradition, as well as many other valuable programs and opportunities, is in danger of being lost if the Lakewood community fails to pass the school levy on the May 4th.

Lakewood’s Alma Mater speaks to the unity, loyalty and pride of the Lakewood district. Through no fault of the district we can’t wait for the government to fixthis problem. Please carefully consider the enormous request before us and join together and “…do our best for our dear old L.H.S.”
