SIDNEY — Lehman Catholic High School will hold an open house for prospective students and parents from 6-8:30 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 3, from 6:00-8:30 p.m. Students in grades 5-8 are especially invited to attend, but all families with an interest in Lehman Catholic are welcome. The event is also open to older students who might be considering transferring to Lehman from another high school.
“We encourage anyone who wants to begin planning for the future to come and take a look at what we have to offer,” said Lehman Principal/CEO Denise Stauffer. “The open house gives families a chance to see our facility, meet our faculty, and hear about Lehman from our students and parents.”
Lehman student ambassadors will give tours of the school and teachers will be in their classrooms to greet potential future Cavaliers and their parents. One highlight of the tour will be a stop in the newly renovated cafeteria area. In addition, the school’s annual science fair will be taking place in the Cianciolo Family Gymnasium and open house attendees are invited to stay and view the students’ projects beginning at 8:30 p.m.
“Having the open house on the same night as science fair enables prospective students and their parents an opportunity to see the quality of our educational program firsthand,” said Stauffer. “Lehman provides students with a quality education with an emphasis on individual attention, plus the opportunity to participate in athletics, music, and a lot of activities and clubs. We provide an educational experience grounded in faith and Christian values so students are also very involved in service projects.”
Lehman has been awarded the Governor’s Thomas Edison Award of Excellence in Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) Education for 26 consecutive years. Lehman graduates are known for their leadership in these areas and past graduates have received numerous full-ride scholarships to major in mathematics, science, and engineering fields. The 47 members of the class of 2015 received over a half-million dollars in college scholarships, renewable over four years to over $2.1 million.
