LHJH BEAUTIFICATION PROJECT!

The LHJH campus beautiļ¬cation project, approved by the RISD Board of Trustees and backed by campus administration, entails planting trees, installing cut limestone seating areas, and addressing the retaining walls near the auditorium. 

We had our big tree planting on January 13 and it was a great success! Thank you to everyone who participated. See pictures below.

We still need your help to fully realize this project!  For more details, including the landscaping plan and how to donate, visit our campus beautification page today!!!

  • Sponsor professional development for LHHS faculty; and
  • Provide funds for teacher and departmental "wish lists."
