LOHS athletes give of their time


About 200 students come together for school beautification

by: SUBMITTED PHOTO: CLAIRE MURPHY - Lake Oswego High School students gather for a school photo during a school cleanup day this month.It can be tough to maintain a school’s large grounds, especially with funding so short these days.

But, Lake Oswego High School athletics teams stepped up earlier this month, weeding, raking, picking up litter, sweeping up leaves, trimming bushes and, in general, and keeping their school looking beautiful.

On Aug. 18, all boys and girls sports teams — almost 250 student volunteers — gathered to clean up a portion of the campus. In the hot sun, they toiled from 8:30 a.m. to noon.

School Principal Cindy Schubert said it is a huge help to the custodial staff.

“I’m very proud of our students, our Lakers, for doing this,” Schubert said. “They do have pride in their school.”
