New Career Pathways Available

By Riley Phillips

With the 2019-2020 school year closely approaching, Lansing High School has opened up a few new career pathways for students to follow. These pathways range from Audio/Visual Communications to Fire Science. There will be meetings held today, tomorrow, and Monday during CCR  to promote these new pathways. Not only does this allow students to broaden their horizons , but it also allows students to get a feel for their career pathways and whether or not they could see themselves doing it in the future. This provided so many good opportunities and will hopefully make school more enjoyable for these students.

A google form is available, via CCR Teachers, in order to sign up for these meetings.

By Riley Phillips

School shootings — a topic that if often times turned away from or avoided all together. However, the Lansing Thespian Board believed that this was a topic that needed to be addressed, and on February 14 the Theatre Department will be performing “Declaration”.

“This play is being held in memory of the Parkland Shooting,” said Theatre Director Casey McCord. “You do not witness any form of shooting or even hear shooting at all, it is more of seeing the actions leading up to the shooting and the students reflecting on their lives after the fact,” he said.

The play will start off as a normal school day then the rest of the plot will unfold from there. There will be around 30 different cast members and they all play a crucial role in ensuring that the play goes over smoothly. “We want to raise awareness about this topic more than anything,” said McCord.

“Declaration” will be held this Thursday, February 14 at 7 p.m. in the Lansing High School Auditorium.  Admission is $5 at the door. The cast has been working hard to prepare for this play, and is ready to spread awareness about a very sensitive topic.
