THANK YOU FOR YOUR HELP with the LHS Staff Luncheon!
Thank you to the many volunteers who brought food for the Staff Luncheon on August 27th, and helped with set-up and clean-up! With your help, we had a huge variety of food, and were able to feed 80+ staff members! This was a GREAT way to start the year, and to show the staff our appreciation for teaching and nurturing our kids. Thank you so very much for all your help!!!! LHS Families are great!
Please also note: If you brought any bowls or utensils, you can pick it up in the library anytime before 3:00. Please pick it up before the first day of school, if possible!
There is officially no supply list for our high school students. It is suggested to have the basics.....binder, paper, pens/pencils on the first day. Each teacher will tell them specifically what is needed for their particular class.

WEB LINKS TO ATHLETIC INFORMATION
Below is information on how to access the athletic schedules and forms that are on our district athletic web pages.
Here is the link to the forms page where we now have high school sports clearance forms (including the new head injury/concussion form we are asking middle schools to use as well) as well as all of our sport specific warning letters:
Here is the link to the sport schedules page where we post both the high school and middle school sport schedules (middle schools are on the lower half of the page):
Rather than having each school upload the forms to their own pages, schools will now link to our pages. That way, as we update the schedules or forms, the school page will be current as well.
To find these pages without the above links, you do the following:
1) Go to the Renton School District home page at www.rentonschools.us
2) In the menus near the top, just under the photo bar, click on “District Departments”
3) Scroll down to Extracurricular and click on “Activities and Athletics”
4) Once on the Activities and Athletics main page, choose the appropriate menu from the left side—Sport Schedules or Athletic Forms
We hope that this information helps. Please share it with your community.
Thanks to Lisa Holliday for all her work on getting these links up and running! Thanks also to Vicki Molnar, Amelia Clark, Carmen Dewey, and everyone else who gave their ideas/input during this process.
Director of Athletics, Renton School District

Eagle Wings, August 2009
Another summer is quickly coming to an end, and with it, the anticipation of the upcoming school year. Many things are happening in and out of the building in preparation for the first day scheduled for September 2, 2009 (freshmen only).
Work continues on the installation of a new turf field and six lane synthetic track. The soccer practice field has been reseeded, and installation of the throwing circles for the shot put and discus and the approach for the javelin will begin shortly. Both projects are scheduled for completion in mid-October. Practice sites for football and girl’s soccer will be moved to Renton Park (for dates prior to the beginning of school) and the outfield areas of the softball and baseball fields.
Many of the LHS teachers have been attending professional development trainings and workshops to hone their instructional practice which will in turn provide Lindbergh students with rich and valuable learning environments. The Lindbergh staff, along with the rest of the Renton School District staff, will continue the SUMMIT Initiative work which began last year, with work focused on Powerful Teaching and Learning.
With the ever changing state of our nation’s and world economies, it is imperative that students make every effort to acquire the necessary skills in high school that will prepare them for life beyond graduation. This begins with regular attendance, from the first day of the school year to the last day of the school year, and coming to the classroom ready to learn. I am excited to begin the 2009-10 school term and look forward to working together with all students and parents during the coming year.

Seniors, it is time to get your senior portraits taken. Please tell your photographer the requirements for the yearbook.
Remember to take lots of pictures of fun summer vacations to submit. We love hearing about special events, awards and moments in your life. Baby pictures are fun too, we try to use all of them, and sometimes we get too many, sometimes not enough. Copy your favorite pictures, we try to get them back to you, but obviously dealing with the large amounts that we do, some get misplaced along the way.
Last, but not least, are the Senior Ad pages available to purchase. All ads will be in color and orders are due by January 15, 2010. You will be receiving an order by mail, or your student may drop by the yearbook office to pick one up.
Prices: ¼ page: $100.00
½ page: $150.00
Full page: $250.00
This year we will be selling advertising space to businesses. If you have a small business and are interested in purchasing an ad, let me know at 425-204-3178, or email at email@example.com. The phone will not be manned until end of August, so email is the quickest and easiest way to reach an editor or me.
If you buy your book before school starts during Eagle Days, it will only cost $60.00. After school starts it will be $65.00 and after January 15, 2010, yearbooks will cost $70.00. (Please disregard previous cost announcements - this is the correct information.)
Welcome back, Eagles! Our celebration of Homecoming will occur early this year, with the game on Friday, September 18th at 6:00pm against Renton High School at Renton Memorial Stadium. We will have a car parade from Lindbergh to the stadium prior to the game. If you are interested in participating, pick-up information in the attendance office
The dance will be Saturday, September 19th, from 8:30-11:30pm. With a theme of “A Night on the Town,” the dance is sure to be a good time. In an effort to be more inclusive and to place the emphasis of homecoming on celebrating Lindbergh High School, this year’s dance will be casual in attire.
Adult chaperones are needed for the BIGGEST school dance of the year! If you can help, please respond ASAP, to Christina Allen, at firstname.lastname@example.org
Note: Students will not be able to purchase Homecoming dance tickets if they have any open discipline or fines. Please have them take care of clearing these up ASAP!
Appropriate school attire should be worn to reflect work-place standards. Please review Lindbergh High School’s dress code in the student handbook (copied below for your convenience). For safety and identification purposes, we will no longer allow students to wear hats, hoods, and other head coverings, unless for religious reasons. Examples of inappropriate clothing for work and school are:
Students found to be in violation of the school dress code will be asked to alter their outfit so as to comply with the guidelines. Repeated offenses will result in parent contact and/or sending the student home.
WORK SITE LEARNING
Receive high school credit for working! Work Site Learning (WSL) is a wonderful learning experience that connects knowledge and skills obtained in the classroom to those needed in the work environment. If you have a job and meet the requirements of the Worksite Learning program, you can receive one-half credit for every 180 hours you work.
In order to enroll in the program, you, your parent and your employer will need to complete the required forms. Students may pick up packets by Mrs. Derrig’s desk in room 220G or print them from this website. Once the packet is completed and returned, the student will document his/her work hours.
Students will have folders in Mrs. Derrig’s office where they are to document their hours with each paycheck. It is important that students remain current in documenting their hours in order to receive the maximum amount of credit.
As a student approaches 180 hours, Mrs. Derrig will visit the work site and obtain an evaluation. Mrs. Derrig will review the evaluation with the student and then the student can start on the next 180 hours.
Mrs. Derrig is in the building first and second periods every day. On Tuesdays, she will be available first through fourth periods. Check the white board next to her desk for additional availability.
Mrs. Terry Derrig

Dear Parent or Guardian: RE: Human Papillomavirus (HPV) Disease
and Vaccine Information
The following information is being provided to you by the Washington Department of Health, at the direction of the Washington State Legislature, to help reduce cervical cancer rates in Washington by protecting girls from HPV.
What is Human Papillomavirus (HPV)?
HPV is a very common virus that is spread through genital contact. At least 50 percent of sexually active people will get HPV at some time in their lives. There are many types of HPV. Some types can cause cervical cancer or genital warts. Both women and men can get HPV and easily spread it to others without knowing they have it.
What are the symptoms of HPV?
Most people with HPV have no signs or symptoms. Some people know they have HPV because they have a symptom like genital warts. Women may find out they have HPV through cervical cancer screening (Pap tests) and HPV testing. Health care providers do not usually test for HPV unless abnormal cervical cell changes are detected by a Pap test.
How can HPV infection be prevented?
The best way to prevent HPV infection is to abstain from all sexual activity. It is uncertain how well condoms protect against HPV infection. The HPV vaccine is a very effective way to prevent four types of HPV that can cause cervical cancer and genital warts.
What is the HPV vaccine?
The HPV vaccine, Gardasil, ® protects against four types of HPV which cause 70 percent of cervical cancers and 90 percent of genital warts. The vaccine does not protect against all types of HPV or other sexually transmitted infections. The vaccine also does not protect against any type of HPV that someone already has. Current studies show that HPV vaccine protection lasts up to 5 years. Research will continue to determine the length of the HPV vaccine’s protection.
Who should get the vaccine and when should they get it?
The Federal Advisory Committee on Immunization Practices highly recommends the HPV vaccine for all girls age 11-12 years. Women ages 13-26 will also benefit from the vaccine, if their doctor recommends it. HPV vaccine is given as a series of three shots over a six month period. The vaccine is not currently recommended for boys or men. The HPV vaccine is a preventive vaccine and will offer the best protection if given before sexual activity starts. HPV vaccine is not required for school entry in Washington.
Where can I find the HPV vaccine?
Ask your Health Care Provider, or local health clinic to find out whether your daughter needs the HPV vaccine, where you can get it and the cost.
