    Lamar High School is an International Baccalaureate school whose goal is to provide the best opportunity for a diverse group of students to receive a rigorous, internationally accredited education, with a broad range of extracurricular activities, in a safe and nurturing environment. The goal of the IB is for students to be challenged academically, while also finding creative and physical fitness outlets, getting involved in the community around them, and developing a global view that takes the student beyond their immediate environment.

    Principal's Corner  

    • Last week I met with a newly formed Principal’s Cabinet, a student representative body that will focus their efforts on helping us continue to improve Lamar.  The group is made up of one or two representatives from each of Lamar’s clubs, teams or organizations. 
      During our first meeting we discussed the proposed role of the Principal’s Cabinet and reviewed the IB Programme Standards and Practices to begin developing a new 3-year Action Plan to further develop our IB Programmes.
      If I haven’t said it recently, I am soooooo impressed with Lamar students. 
      Student-Led Conferences
      I have previously shared information with you about Student-Led Conferences.  At this point, all 11th and 12th graders have been assigned a date and time for their conference.  It is really important that we come together as a team—student, school personnel and parent—to be part of this process.  This is a tremendous opportunity for the team to learn more about what a student is good at, what he or she is interested in, and a face-to-face opportunity to work together to build a path and plan toward graduation and college or career.  Don’t let your student tell you it isn’t important. 
      10th graders will begin receiving their dates and times on Friday with report cards and 10th-grade conferences will begin just after spring break.  Students will be assigned times within two weeks windows and will receive notification in advance.
      9th graders have started conferences, but not all students have been scheduled.  Ask your child for any information they received from their teachers regarding scheduling conferences.  Watch for more information.
