New Course for LAU 8th Graders: Starting this winter, students in 8th grade will be automatically enrolled in the new state-required College & Career Awareness course. More information can be found in the SIS message sent earlier this week to all 8th graders and their parents.

New Student Mentoring Program: Our Student Body Leadership team has created a new initiative called the Student Mentoring Program. Burgers of more than one year can sign up to be a Student Mentor. Being a Student Mentor includes helping new students learn their way around our online systems, find their way to student activities, and succeed on their assignments, plus also just being their friend! New students can sign up to be assigned a Student Mentor, and Student Mentors may be assigned more than one new student. Click here to request a Student Mentor, and click here if your student would like to become a Mentor.

Daniels Scholarship closes this Sunday! High school seniors in Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, and Wyoming may want to visit the Daniels Fund website to apply for the Daniels Scholarship Program! The application deadline is this Sunday, November 15, at 4:00 PM MST.
