Fifth Annual Fighting Knights 5K Cross Country Fun Run

The 5th Annual Fighting Knights 5K Cross Country Fun Run will take place on Saturday, September 26th. All proceeds from the 5K Fun Run benefit the LHHS Boys and Girls Cross Country Program. Please see the attached registration form (link below) for details. We hope that you will consider participating and forward this to any friends and family that may be interested. If you are a club sponsor or coach, we would love to have your group participate. Pre-registration is encouraged, and will save you $5.00 on your entry fee. If you do not wish to run, please consider making a tax credit eligible donation to the Cross Country Program. We also invite you to watch the race or sign up to volunteer. And of course, everyone is invited to stay for the Middle School and High School races that follow for our 33rd Annual Mark Weston Cross Country Invitational. Go Knights! More info and registration form.

Once school starts, drivers will be sharing the road with students and school buses. For a refresher on how to handle school crosswalks and school buses, we have posted relevant pages from the Arizona Driver License Manual. The full manual is available online at the Arizona Department of Motor Vehicles website. Please drive safely and, if you are driving a student to school, leave home early and give yourself a few extra minutes to get them there safely and on time.

The Lake Havasu City Police Department made a video about crosswalk safety. It contains lots of good information. For instance, did you know that normal pedestrian crosswalks are marked with white paint while school crosswalks are painted yellow? Did you know the stopping requirement for a vehicle approaching an occupied school crosswalk is different than that of a vehicle approaching an occupied normal crosswalk? Watch the video.

Some school supplies available

Thanks to our generous community, we have some school supplies available for those who may not be able to set their child up with all the necessary items. If you need assistance, please contact your child's school.
