Principal's Message

Greetings Vikings

    The first quarter is now complete and we are 25% through the school year.  Report cards will be distributed by November 12th.   Please check BCPSONE to keep up on your grades. 

    It is very important that you contact your child’s teacher(s) if you have any questions dealing with grades and expectations.  
    American Education Week is November 16th thru the 20th.  We will also conduct our Senior Mock Interviews that week (11-19). Please come visit us and see all the great things we are doing in & out of the classroom.  Believe it or not we are also thinking about the next school year.  We will be organizing registration for the 2016-17 school year.  This will start in December.  As your child moves up in grade level we want them to take the opportunities that we offer in Electives, AP courses, Completer Programs and going off campus to CCBC for college credit.  Please contact your child’s counselor for more information if you have questions.

    We are very proud of our student athletes during the Fall Sports Season.  Our young men and women not only demonstrated their athletic talent but also their sense of sportsmanship and school pride.  The Winter Sports Season is now in progress.  First practice starts on the 14th.  Student athletes must maintain their academic eligibility to not only tryout for the team but to remain on the team throughout the season. This is a 2.0 GPA.

    Seniors ARE YOU READY, ARE YOU READY for graduation!!!!! Seniors need to make sure all of their Student Service Learning Hours are complete.  All students can check their hours on the bottom of their report card.  You need 75 hours.  If seniors can go through all 3 quarters with no E’s and be eligible to graduate then you can earn a FREE PROM TICKET.  Prom is May 27thGraduation will be held at UMBC on June 3rd at 2:30 pm.  More information on graduation will be given throughout the school year.

    Please help us maintain your child’s academic progress throughout the holiday season.  Routinely check your child’s academic status through the BCPSONE account.  I would like to wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving.

Inspirational Educator of the Month

Congratulations to Lindsey Potter on being named the November 2015 Inspirational Educator of the Month.

Ms. Potter teaches a wide variety of our science courses, including Zoology, Biology, and Paramedical Biology.   She is also the teacher for our Project Lead The Way (PLTW) class in Biomedical Science.  Lindsey is also very involved in athletics here at LHS as the Head Coach for Varsity Field Hockey, and for Indoor Track.  Beyond all of that, Ms. Potter also serves as the Class of 2017 Advisor.  Wow!

Ms. Potter was inspired to become a teacher following her years of being a camp counselor and working with children, her love for science, and by the best role models a person could ask for.  Lindsey brings a special enthusiasm to her classes, and says that what she appreciates most about LHS is the diverse and hard-working student/teacher community here.  There is no doubt that Lindsey plays her part in fostering positive interactions to build that community. 

Ms. Potter is another of our Lansdowne High School teachers who is a local, with Parkville, MD in Baltimore County as her hometown.  She earned her Bachelor of Arts in Biology from nearby University of Delaware, and her Master of Arts in Teaching from Towson University.

It is with great Viking Pride that we celebrate this award for Lindsey Potter.  Congratulations!
