Lee's Summit North High School

This Summer is less than five weeks away. With that comes the fun and enjoyment of the camps. There are many different camps for you to join and enjoy, whether you wanna play the sport or not, the camps are also a really great way to stay in shape. Through the school website you can locate the summer camps tab and it will take to the website for the summer camps offered by Lee’s Summit North.

  The camps that North offer include girls and boys Basketball, Cross Country, Tennis, Soccer, Track and Field, Softball, Football, Volleyball, Wrestling, Robotic and Engineering, Band camp and Speed, Strength and Agility camp.

  “I am doing Softball camp through Lee’s Summit North this Summer and I think it’s really good because we do it every year and it gives our coaches a chance to look at us before tryouts so that they can kind of have an idea of who their going to see and what players they are going to get to deal with this season,” Sydney McGee, sophomore, said.

  All camps work hard in getting girls and boys in shape and ready for their upcoming seasons. The coaches strive to use these camps as a way to see what they will be working with when try-outs come around.

Eco Fest: Build a Better Future

By: Maria Smith

Eco fest is being held Saturday, May 4th from 10 am – 5 pm. The official place of the fest is the Chipman commons, the shopping center by post coffee. There will be speakers, workshops, and kids activities. There will also be food trucks so be prepared to spend the day talking about how to live a more eco-friendly life. This festival comes two weeks after Earth Day, an ever-growing holiday supporting the orb that we live on. Eco fest is a way to point out how we impact the environment in a fun, low-stress way. No one wants to see where the Earth is headed, but a lot of people do not know what they can do to help stop this development. Eco fest can help inform and teach you how to do this.

  “You know, I don’t want this planet to just turn into a bunch of concrete. I think that our planet is beautiful because of the environment,” Isaac Cleaver, senior, said.

  Spend some time this weekend helping you learn how to change your impact on the environment from bad to good.

Jostens’ Grad Finale

By: AJ Conner

Although most of the school has gotten used to hearing “Jostens” on the morning announcements, be it for ordering class rings or graduation goodies, their last visit of the year will be this week. Thursday from 2:20 to 2:40, Jostens staff will be at North to deliver graduation announcement orders. If you are a senior who has not yet ordered a cap and gown, Jostens will also be taking orders for those. For those paying any leftover balances, be sure to bring money, because checks are no longer a valid form of payment. The end of the year is fast approaching, and aside from planning next year’s graduation announcements, this visit will be their last until they return to deliver cap and gown orders on May 10 for seniors’ last day.
