LRHS has many unique clubs to offer that can show your involved at school. Clubs can not only help you make new friends at school, but you can also sometimes earn community service hours. A list of all LRHS clubs can be found here.

2. Become a leader in a club

Being an officer is a great way to show your leadership skills at LRHS. However, some clubs do require that you are in the club for a full year and have a certain number of hours to become an officer.

SGA (Student Government Association) Historian Tayla Rosenthal stated that, ” I would encourage people to run for an officer position because its a great way to meet new people, gain leadership, and take on a range of challenges”.

3. Being involved in school events

Going to school events such as sporting events are a great way to support the school. A list of upcoming events for the school can be found here.

4. Join a sports team

Joining a sports team is a great way to not only stay athletic but be more connected to the school.  If you don’t want to join a team definitely go out and cheer for the mustangs.

Varsity softball player Brooklyn Lucero, “I would recommend joining a sports team because some of my best friends are also my teammates. Not only did I become closer with my teammates but I also gained a college scholarship.”

5. Peer tutor students

Peer tutoring students is a fulfilling way to meet aditonal students at the school and work closely with other faculty members.  You can also earn community service by doing this.
