Cue the festive music and dancing because LEC earned the only A for Lee County Schools for the second year in a row! This proves as a scientific fact that LEC is the place to be, because our students, parents, teachers, and staff have worked hard.
While the LEC staff celebrated with cake and sparkling juice on Thursday of last week, they want the students of LEC to know they can expect a celebration of their own very soon!
If you have not done so, you are STRONGLY encouraged to sign up to receive notifications from the College’s CougarAlert notification system. The College uses this system to inform you of a potential or actual campus emergency, weather issues, and class cancellations or delays in opening the College. It’s the fastest, most convenient way to know the College’s status in any situation. Please visit the CougarAlert website at http://www.cccc.edu/cougaralerts/ to sign up. A video link is available to assist you with the enrollment process.
Please congratulate the following students for exemplifying the value of responsibility! Teachers voted for students, and the results were announced last week. Each student recieved a confetti-filled balloon and a sack of 100 Grand (the candy, not the cash).
Freshman: Shishir Desai
Sophomore: Mikayla Comer
Junior: Aliseo Morales
Senior: Elizabeth Vanegas
Students still have a chance to be student of the month! Here are the rest of the values the teachers will be looking for in their students:
September - Integrity
Having integrity means to be honest, sincere, and to conduct oneself according to what is right and what is wrong. When students can recognize integrity in themselves and others, they are able to develop a feeling of security and self-assurance. Students exhibit excellent character traits such as kindness, honesty, loyalty, safety, respect, and responsibility.
October - Initiative
Initiative is a life skill that separates successful people from those who do not meet their goals. These students get involved, to do the right thing, and to enjoy the intrinsic rewards of a job well done! By developing initiative, we can make process towards this important goal.
November - Perseverance
Perseverance is a skill you will need throughout your life! Never give up, work hard and make it happen! Students who receive this award should be over-comers and rise above unfavorable circumstances.
December - Comradery
Comradery is the spirit of friendship and community in a group. This would be given to a student who keeps others upbeat despite the difficulty of their circumstances. In other words, someone who comes to mind when you say, "We're in this together."
Students in CCCC courses (and their parents):
CCCC will release grade alerts for students who have a 75% or below in their college courses. These alerts will be published on the students' AVISO pages on the following dates for the Fall semester:
The following LEC Seniors are in the Phi Theta Lambda Leadership Honor Society and travelled to California to compete and represent LEC and CCCC with their leadership, intelligence, and diligence. We are so proud of you!

Please join us in congratulating these students for a job well done in their CCCC classes last year!
When Mr. Stern teaches government regulation in his Honors Civics classes he uses Marvel comics to get students excited while educating them about how our government works.
He was recently a guest on The Cool Cat Teacher Blog (it's true, Mr. Stern is a cool cat) podcast hosted by Vicki Davis.

Advisory is not just a regular homeroom, though Advisers do help students with their LEC and CCCC needs. We meet every day for 30 minutes, so we have plenty of time for traditional homeroom functions and much more!
Here's a glimpse of what we do each day of the week:
Morality Mondays: Students learn the skills they need to be successful students, workers, citizens, and humans.
Transformation Tuesdays: Students are creating ideas for how to transform LEC and/or the Sanford and Lee County communities.
Word Up Wednesdays: Students read a book of their choice!
Thirsty for Knowledge Thursdays: Students get tutoring, have time to complete work, and learn study and test taking skills.
Family Fridays: Students participate in clubs and activities that bring us together as an LEC family.
There are 2 important changes to know about after school pick up for clubs and tutoring:
