Five LCHS Band members were named to the South Georgia Region Honor Bands, including two sophomores who earned first chair positions in their respective sections. Senior Kyle Chastain (trumpet) and junior Gavin Walker (tuba) were named to the 11th/12th Grade Region Band, and sophomores Chandler Ricker (trumpet), Wyatt Poe (tenor sax), and John Ramsey (percussion) earned spots in the 9th/10th Grade Region Band. Poe and Ramsey each earned First Chair in their respective sections within the 9th/10th Grade Region Band. Selection to the band is based on district- and state-level auditions. Students who scored high enough on the district-level audition in December were moved on to the state-level audition in January.

We will have coverage through the end of the year this year, by way of a new feature called Time Capsule. We will continue to take pictures of events up through Graduation Day 2014 and upload them to our LCHS Trojan 2014 Time Capsule site. All students who buy a yearbook will receive a code in the yearbook that allows them online access to ALL photos after our March print deadline. For the first time we will be able to feature, in depth, all events that we normally don't have time to cover as we should. That means that baseball, soccer, golf, tennis, track, Prom, Spring Musical, Senior Picnic, and yes, even graduation will be photographed and shared through our Time Capsule! If you know of any event or sport that is not listed here that you want covered, please let the yearbook staff know. Please spread the word and continue to share your photographs on ReplayIt.com!

Please see this document for important dates and graduation information for seniors and their parents. Besides earning enough credits, another important requirement for graduation is to find lost books, return uniforms, and pay any outstanding fees owed to any of the schools from this and previous years. Please check Parent Portal to see if your student has any outstanding fees and encourage him to return or pay for the items.
