It has been an awesome week with our LGHS teens! We hosted a weeklong scavenger hunt where groups of friends competed for the chance to win gift cards. Some of the tasks included taking a selfie with a favorite book and playing leap frog in the lawn, however the most hilarious videos were the rap battles between teens. We cannot wait to find out who our scavenger hunt winners will be!
