Principal's Message

Greetings Vikings

The first quarter is now complete and we are 25% through the school year.  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 14th thru the 18th.  We will also conduct our Senior Mock Interviews that week (11-17). 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 2017-18 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 26th.  Graduation will be held at UMBC on June 2nd at 10:00 am.  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 Katie Landon on being named the November 2016 Inspirational Educator of the Month.

Ms. Landon says she has wanted to become a teacher as long as she can remember.  She loved being at school where she felt safe and had fun learning.  Inspired by many teachers she respected and loved, she knew that teaching was her true vocation.  She demonstrates her passion for education regularly, and she represents a key component in pulling us together as a team.  Teamwork is at the heart of her greatest likes here at Lansdowne High School, citing the way that the Vikings always pull together and are consistently resilient. 

Ms. Landon is our STAT teacher here at LHS.  For those unfamiliar with the STAT program, it is an acronym for Students and Teachers Accessing Tomorrow, and is the BCPS initiative to infuse technology into education and to increase student engagement.  Ms. Landon comes to us with experience as an English teacher in Baltimore County.  The STAT teacher position gives her great opportunities to not only interact with our students, but to also help to teach the teachers and help them to design engaging lessons.

Katie hails from Baltimore, and has an educational background with strong ties to the local area.  She earned her Associates Arts degree from the Community College of Baltimore County, her Bachelor of Science degree from Towson University, and her Master of Arts degree from Goucher College, all here in Baltimore County.  She’s even continuing her education at the nearby Notre Dame of Maryland University. 

We count ourselves fortunate to have such a talented educator here at LHS.  It is with great Viking Pride that we celebrate this award for Ms. Katie Landon.  Undoubtedly, her husband and children (twin boys and a girl) are also proud of her.  Congratulations!
