This past weekend, South Lakes participated in the American Cancer Society’s nationwide Relay for Life.
Divided into a number of teams, hundreds of participants camped out in the school stadium from 1 p.m. on Saturday until 8 a.m. on Sunday. The event featured live musicians and speeches by cancer
survivors, including state Del. Kenneth Plum. A luminaria ceremony was held Saturday evening to commemorate cancer victims. Candles were arranged all
around the track, and also from top to bottom in the stadium stands, spelling “Hope, Cope, Cure.” The event was concluded with a Survivors’ Lap on Sunday
morning. Over $400,000 were raised for the cure for cancer at this Relay site alone.
This Friday, June 6, school hours will end at noon and the June Jam will begin. Students will be reminded of their elementary school days by
participating in a variety of outdoor games.
The final choral and orchestra concerts for the year will take place next week in the South Lakes Little Theatre. The choral concert is on Wednesday, June 11
at 7 p.m. and the orchestra concert is on Thursday, June 12 at 7 p.m. The orchestra will perform works by Bach, Mendelssohn and Mozart, and student soloists will be featured.
