Wild for Cats, the Academic Booster Club for Lake Highlands High School, exists to enhance the academic reputation of Lake Highlands High School.
Our 2018 Wild for Cats fundraising campaign is now underway. For 2018, our goal is to:
Create additional collaborative learning centers for the students of LHHS;
Provide students with PSAT, SAT and ACT test preparation and online study aids;
Sponsor professional development for LHHS faculty; and
Provide funds for teacher and departmental "wish lists."
If your company provides a company match, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. All donors will receive a “Wild for Cats” yard sign and will be recognized at various academic ceremonies, on our website, and in the All-Sports program. Donors contributing $500 or more will be invited to join us for a celebration on the stadium patio during a LHHS home football game next Fall.

LHJH BEAUTIFICATION PROJECT!
The LHJH campus beautiﬁcation 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.
