Can't travel this summer?
The Thunderbolt Middle School Educational Tour Club's Facebook page can give you a taste of New York and Washington, D.C. The Lake Havasu High School Educational Tour Group's Facebook page will take you to Costa Rica.
While in Costa Rica, the 55 LHHS students in the tour group visited a school, watched and participated in traditional dance, learned to make Costa Rican tortillas and even had a soccer game with the students. While educational, the trip was also packed with action-filled activities. The students went kayaking, horse-back riding, zip-lining, visited and swam in waterfalls and natural hot springs, walked through and learned about the bio-diverse areas of the cloud forest, rain forest and tropical vegetation and wild life, and planted trees to reverse deforestation in the area.
Your tax credit contributions can be used to support the tour groups at Thunderbolt and Lake Havasu High School.
Free summer breakfast and lunch for kids 18 and under
Smoketree, Jamaica, and Nautilus Elementary Schools and Lake Havasu High School are all participating in the Summer Food Service Program offering free breakfast and lunch to children age 18 and younger. All children 18 or younger can participate whether they attend one of our schools or not. Details...
What is the Summer Food Service Program? The Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) is a U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Child Nutrition Program established to ensure that low-income children, ages 18 and younger, continue to receive nutritious meals when school is not in session. Free meals, that meet Federal nutrition guidelines, are provided to all children at approved SFSP sites in areas with significant concentrations of low-income children by schools, private non-profits and local or county governments. The SFSP is administered at the State level by the Arizona Department of Education (ADE).

It was a great year for Lake Havasu High School athletes
Please take a look at the new website LHC4Kids.com. From the site:
Our community wants a great education for our children. A group of businesses and churches have partnered together to raise support for the Lake Havasu Elementary Schools. Each of the six public elementary schools has submitted a “needs” list of resources, technology and training that will assist them in continuing in educational excellence. Our community goal is $60,000 ($10,000 per school) with $6,000 already pledged by the sponsors. We invite you to join us in supporting our children today!
We are adding a permanent link for this site to our QUICKLINKS list to the left. (If you are using a smaller, hand held device, QUICKLINKS will show up near the bottom on the page.)
