Principal's Message

Greetings Vikings

Congratulations to the class of 2016.  We celebrated their graduation on Friday June 3rd at UMBC.  What a joyous day.  There will be opportunity for those that need to complete a credit or two to finish over the summer and participate in the August Graduation Ceremony.


Students in Grades 9-11 will be finishing strong with the time remaining.  Remember the 4th quarter GPA determines your eligibility for fall sports, for the 2016-17 school year. 


As we develop next year’s schedule students have many opportunities for internships, CCBC and Advanced courses.  You need to work with your counselor to make sure you college & career path is planned accordingly. 


The last day of school is set for June 17th.  Finals week will be June 10th- 17th.  You must participate in the final exams so your Final Grade is not lowered.  


If you are going to EYLP (Extended Year Learning Program) to earn back a credit, this will take place at Lansdowne Middle School.  We will not have any student activity here at the high school because of the Window Replacement Project.  The summer programs are held at the middle school from June 21- July 29th.  

I would like to wish everyone a safe and relaxing summer.

Inspirational Educator of the Month

Congratulations to Ms. Amato on being named the June 2016 Inspirational Educator of the Month.

Ms. Amato teaches a wide array of classes here at LHS, including ESOL and Algebra 1.  She's a natural for teaching ESOL, as she previously taught Spanish I, II, III, and IV at another school before coming to LHS.  She also coaches soccer here (she enjoys playing soccer recreationally as well), and is a high ropes instructor.   

Ms. Amato’s inspiration to the teaching vocation was inspired by her experiences volunteering for a year in Peru.  She says that teaching high school felt surprisingly natural, and that developing relationships with those students got her “hooked on being in the classroom.”  Anyone who has seen her with her students knows that she devotes herself tirelessly to building those relationships here at LHS also.  Further evidence of this comes from her citing the ESOL population and the teachers who are so willing to and amazing at connecting with them as her favorite things about this community. 

Ms. Amato calls Baltimore her hometown, and stayed within the state for her higher education.  She earned her Bachelor of Arts degree at Mount St. Mary’s University, before going on to earn her Masters of Arts in Teaching from Goucher College. 

We count ourselves fortunate to have such a talented and brilliant educator here at LHS.  It is with great Viking Pride that we celebrate this award for Ms. Amato.  One can imagine her celebrating with some of her favorite homemade hummus.  Congratulations!
